Is Ghost Hunting a Trivial Pursuit?
How are you at conducting a seance? Because your team will have quite an edge in these online Halloween games if you can consult with spirits, goblins, ghosts, specters, vampires, and other things that go bump in the night.
During this “virtual Halloween trivia pub quiz” your team will tackle a variety of challenges. You might be asked to identify movie monsters by their dating profiles; ponder ridiculous DIY costumes and decide “Who Wore It Best?”; recall characters from Halloween episodes of classic TV shows; name famous haunted places; recognize the slogans of Halloween candy; and more.
You might want to come to the Zoom session appropriately attired for the photo challenge round, where a skeletal hand might come in handy, a pumpkin could pump up your points, and your home gym could count as a torture device.
At the start, you’ll join our Host on Zoom to go over the rules. Then you’ll head into breakout rooms by team, and you’ll use our browser-based app (nothing to install!) to receive and answer questions. After each round you’ll rejoin the host to hear the answers, get score updates, and get in some banter.
Kids Editions are also available, as well as a different sort of game, Virtually Haunted: The Online Halloween Scavenger Hunt, featuring haunted places in America and England, and the tales of the ghosts who linger there.

Fun for Kids and Adults Together
Oh no! A famous art expert is missing, and an anonymous person claiming to have killed the expert is daring you to stop him—or her! This diabolical person has created a virtual museum scavenger hunt for kids involving art in famous museums, and has hidden in the game clues that reveal where the crime took place, what weapon was used, and the name of the killer. Can your team of detectives beat the killer at his or her own game?
You’ll play the killer’s game by visiting museum websites, finding works of art, and answering tricky questions. Close-up details of the art will provide visual clues to help you zero in on the masterpieces you need to examine. No previous knowledge of art or any museum is required.
To play, all you need is a desktop computer and our app that launches in any browser. You’ll connect with our Host and perhaps your teammates in other places by using a video conferencing platform that runs on your computer.
The game is suitable for ages 10 and up, and we recommend at least one adult per team. Think you have what it takes to bring a criminal to justice?
Can your team master our tricky trivia?
Five rounds of fun in one hour will determine whether your team can pull together to become trivia masters. The questions in our virtual games for kids cover a range of topics, such as cartoon characters, snack foods, board games, famous places, songs, and surprising moments in history. You’ll be using our custom app—which can be used in any browser—so if you get stuck with a question, you’ll get a hint.
And to get you up out of your seat there’s a photo scavenger hunt round. That strange object on your bookshelf or funny t-shirt in your closet could help you achieve victory!
Our Game Host will lead your Zoom trivia game and send teams into breakout rooms for each round. The Host will check in with your team to make sure you’re on track. If you’re lucky or very persuasive, you might get a hint.
The game is for ages 10 and up. Groups can arrange private games for any time—for connecting families across the map, for school groups who can’t go on a field trip, for scouts and sports teams that can’t get outdoors, you name it!
Games for the general public are available on select weekends.
Jaw-dropping reactions and uproarious laughter are optional. Ready to play?

A Zoom Game for Team-Building Fun
Get to know your friends and colleagues better on a virtual game of fun questions and surprising answers. First, in the “main room,” everyone in the group answers three multiple-choice questions via an on-screen Zoom poll. You might be asked, “What item would you most want with you on a desert island?” Or, “Which super power would you most want to have?”
Next, our host will send teams into breakout rooms, where you discuss the three questions, talk about your own answers, and decide which choices you think will be the most popular with the group. When you return to the main room, the host will reveal the poll results—and you’ll find out how well your team knows your colleagues.
The best part of the game is bound to be the discussions you have with your teammates, as you find out what each person chose and debate the most popular answers. It’s a great way to start conversations and get to know your teammates better. Contact us to learn more!
