More About This Virtual Event
Saddle up for a cross-country trek full of covered wagons, fun, and cheer!
A knowledgeable host will enthusiastically guide your group through an epic journey full of comfortable connections and themed challenges. Whether players have enjoyed this nostalgic
computer game or not, everyone is sure to have a blast playing multiple unique activities with a new team each round.
Attendees will also help to make important decisions that determine how the whole group traverses the majestic frontier. That said, your experience will be customized to maximize the fun and games your players vote for! So, grab a pen & pencil and gather your crew to enjoy a one-ofa-kind journey full of big laughs and fascinating fun!
Game Play: Your friendly host will play multiple games to maximize the energy and engagement your group experiences. The types of challenges chosen will be based on what YOUR GROUP decides to play. Hilarious and engaging games will be themed around activities
from the classic computer game. Activities such as:
- Transportation Selection
- General Store Shopping
- Gathering Food
- Fording a River
- Taking Shortcuts
- Staying Healthy (booooo dysentery)
Freebie: You automatically receive a free Highlight Reel AND an Event Recap!! The 25 second Highlight Reel is made from a short event recording where your group follows fun prompts. Catchy music and a themed border are added to create a video you can proudly show off! The Event Recap is written by the host and includes the 3 winners (with no prizes promised) and a personalized summary of the entertainment everyone enjoyed!
*A portion of the proceeds for this event will go to select children’s charities.

We’re excited you’re here! Why? Because we love to remotely host virtual, hybrid and in-person events that comfortably connect groups through unique fun. Along the way, we enjoy making your life as easy as possible. To accomplish these goals, we fully host engaging events specifically designed to be entertaining and welcoming social experiences for introverts and extroverts alike. For us, fun is just the vehicle. Genuine connections are the destination!
Since 2016, we've enjoyed hosting soirees for thousands of groups with amazing companies, universities and communities around the world. Since we know it's impossible to predict every variable, we purposefully created an event format that's as flexible as possible. We LOVE what we do, the amazing people we get to do it for, the quality connections we create and the children’s charities we assist along the way! **A portion of all proceeds go to select children’s charities.
FUN FACT - When creating our company’s name, we wanted something that was fun, retro, and spoke to the goals mentioned above. And that’s when it hit us! We’re a lot like old school switchboard operators (“Please hold while I connect you”). Instead of connecting people through cables and phones, we use fun and games!"
