What’s more, if you don’t want to go to them, they can come to you! They have four games – The Heist, A Curious Tea Party, Murder at the Mansion, The School of Magic – that are fully mobile.
They also do virtual and hybrid games to provide crucial team building activities to your remote working teams.
