MetroDemic just delivered on a custom team building event in Fort Worth for incoming students at Texas A&M University School of Law. The event pitted over 30 teams against one another in a race around downtown Fort Worth to save lives from a fictitious epidemic.
As part of their new student orientation, the school was looking for a high energy and socially interactive way to connect incoming students. They picked MetroDemic because it met those criteria, was well within the budget, and offered opportunities to customize the game specifically for this group.
On the morning of the event, all of the participants were gathered together at the Texas A&M University School of Law campus just south of the Fort Worth Convention Center. Students were given an envelope with the names of three other mystery team members and an activation code to play the game. Teams then embarked on a 100-minute outing as they discovered hidden locations, got to know the downtown area, and solved trivia and mental challenges for points. At the conclusion of the event, teams were sent off to a variety of local restaurants to celebrate their heroism and new friendships!
One of the parts that our MetroDemic staff enjoyed the most was customizing our game for this team building event. Custom elements included:
- Changing the starting line to be much closer to the University.
- Adding custom stops in the game to get students familiar with local transportation options, law offices, and the Tarrant County Courthouse.
- A longer game clock to allow more time for the walk from the Texas A&M University School of Law building
- A custom finish line to get all of the students in the heart of downtown Fort Worth for wonderful restaurant selections.
The group event was a big success! There were approximately 150 students playing the game and the administration was handled by a couple of pros on the University staff.
