Building our San Francisco team building experience a couple of years back was a fun challenge. Our standard course size for the game is approximately 3 square blocks. Enough to explore for 90 minutes, but not so expansive that people are completely exhausted after playing. The challenge in San Francisco was that there were SO MANY interesting locations to choose from!
We scouted out Union Square, Chinatown, the Financial district, and stretches along Mission and Market Street. In the end, after receiving a recommendation from a friend over lunch (thanks, Darrell!) we decided to check out the area around Yerba Buena Gardens. It was the perfect place to breathe in some fresh air and enjoy a beautiful afternoon.
Fast forward two years…
Cities change!!! We have some triggers built into our games to keep us tuned in as the landscape of a city evolves. In San Francisco, we noticed major changes with the reconstruction of the Moscone Convention Center, some updates inside NAME park, and even the loss of a fascinating (yet pedestrian unfriendly) art sculpture known as NAME. It was a time for a refresh.
As part of our refresh on the SF team building game, we review every location, fact check every question, replace confusing content, and revise the scoring to account for any questions that are really putting people to the test. It also gives a chance to add in our latest and greatest content, which in this case was several outbreaks that are focused on recognizing images.
With all of that work out of the way, we are pleased to announce that our San Francisco MetroDemic course is in tip-top shape for 2018.
Thank you to all of our team builders and game players for providing us with feedback and updates. We hope that companies looking for group bonding experiences in San Francisco have a fantastic time in this competition to save as many lives as possible in 90 minutes from a deadly epidemic. Good luck!
