GAME SHOW SMASH UP!
Teams get their game on in this high-energy event that is not your average game show. There is no need for a studio audience because, unlike most TV game shows where only a couple of people compete at a time, everyone participates in this team-building event.
As the contestants enter the room, they are handed a bandanna. The color bandanna they receive determines which team they will play on. Our emcee and DJ welcome the participants and invite them to join their teammates to take part in a series of interesting game show challenges including:
Trivia challenges include Name that Candy. Can you tell a Snickers from an Almond Joy, just by looking inside? Do you know your mascots? Identify the names of the companies affiliated with these famous characters.
But wait, there’s more…
You won’t be playing Name that Tune in the Game Show Smash Up! Instead, we’ll play snippets of song lyrics, read by a computer. Without a melody, can you name the song?
Physical challenges are interspersed throughout the event to provide a high-energy brain break and could
include bouncing balloons around in the air while the DJ spins a fun song. When the music stops, each participant grabs one balloon and the emcee spins a wheel. Whichever color the wheel comes to rest on represents the color balloon that is worth bonus points. Teams get one point for each one of the colors they’re holding. Another challenge may have participants racing to be the first to complete a giant jigsaw puzzle.
Just a Minute Challenges
Teams race against the clock in these challenges! For instance, they may have a minute to build the tallest tower out of Jenga blocks. Or, all players see how many pencils they can flip off the back of their hands and then grab again in midair. Teams earn points based on how well they can accomplish this task. Multiple minute-long challenges can be interspersed throughout the game show to energize teams!
The team that ends up with the most points is called to the stage and all of the participants receive an award medal and bragging rights that they were the most successful at the Game Show Smash Up!
