Beat the Screen Overview

Beat the screen has a totally unique format and was designed in mind to get people away from their desks and cut down on their screen time. We’re all guilty of it – and never more so since Covid. The activity includes a 30-minute screen-break in the middle to encourage guests to get away from their desks and complete video or photo challenges either indoors or preferably outdoors to boost wellbeing and enjoy some fresh air.

The format of Beat The Screen ultimately structured around 3 Rounds; the first round is based around cryptic tasks, the second round involves completing 6 fun video challenges (preferably outdoors) and the third round is a frenzied finish by answering as many trivia questions as you can before the Clock hits zero! This can be played in teams or individually, and equally done indoors or outdoors.

How Does it Work?

Following the briefing from one of our charismatic Event Hosts, teams head into their virtual breakout room for Round 1 where they put their heads together to solve a variety of cerebral and cryptic tasks. The clock is ticking…

Round 2 is made up of hands-on and creative photo and video tasks, where each player heads outdoors* on their own for 30 minutes to complete 6 tasks. Each player will score points for their submission which will count towards their team’s final score, plus this is a great way to encourage a screen-break.  

The 3rd and final round has players regrouping for a ‘Beat The Clock’ series of questions, where they must complete as many trivia questions as they can before the timer hits zero!

Our event facilitator will provide an entertaining wrap-up, presenting the best photos and videos from your event!
