The Challenges

The game’s main target is to solve the 2-3 tasks which your group receives at the beginning in the most creative and funny way. The challenges and rules below are selected based on the past years’ experience, the most beloved and chosen tasks by our clients.

 

PICTURE HUNT

The group members have to be the ’stars’ of the pictures and should be doing something that is very typical to Budapest (driving a public bus, be a waiter in a local bar, be a salesman in a local shop, be a ticket controller on a tram… – we have encountered many amazing results, so be creative!). Do something that normally only the locals do.

 

HEY BIG SPENDER

Do your participants know everything about finance, banking, sales or purchasing? Here comes the time to prove that they are the best spenders! Everybody receives a light budget: the actual value of € 1. The task is to spend it during the program on the most typical and funky local things that guests will find. The rule is that it has to be typical to Budapest or Hungary and that you can’t add your own money to the budget, the rest is up to participants– surprise us!

 

CITY QUIZ

The group receive a question, the answer hidden in the city, on the walls, inside of buildings or even up on the roofs. Your team have to work together to find the correct answer during the sightseeing tour. Contact our coordinator and tell us about your groups’ characteristics, or the goal of your meeting in Budapest, and we will suggest personalised challenges for you, with unique themes for the pictures, or even a tailor made quiz just for you. At the end of the tour, groups meet again, we project the answers, the photos, the products, hear explanations, sing the new rhythm or perform anything else related, and then a jury or a vote decides which the best team is. The winner gets a cool local award. Technical equipment is provided by UNDERGUIDE.

 

Urban Treasure Hunt

(Outdoor)

DURATION approx. 4 hours

GROUP SIZE from 20 to 200+ guests

POSSIBLE LOCATION downtown Budapest / Buda Castle Hill

TRANSPORTATION walking and public transportation/by bike

RECOMMENDED SEASON spring, summer, fall

 

Treasure hunts are always great fun, especially if when combined with the discovery of a new city – in our case Budapest. We suggest this game to groups who prefer to discover things individually – still of course with our guidance in the background – and in a playful way. The group will be split into smaller teams (3 to 8 people/team), all teams receive secret codes and indices. Their task is to find the treasure, and put together the pieces of the puzzle, hidden around the city centre. Your team may already have visited Budapest, or they may all be newcomers – regardless, they will have the same fun! Decoding, solving riddles, discovering hidden chests all around the city in the crossfire of watching eyes everywhere. Although in this game there is no guide to accompany the group, among the maps and secrets, the teams will have the chance to get to know the centuries - old history of Budapest. What’s hidden in the middle of a sculpture group, between the greenery of a bush next to a playground, or in the nooks of a church? Every secret treasure can be found, if the team is fast and dedicated! Work together, convince, compromise, be the best treasure hunter there is! The treasure hunters can discover the secret face of the city, and get to the coveted finish by using their flair, riddle-solving ability, and their intuitions. At the end of the program, all teams meet again in a cool bar in Budapest, where everybody is our guest for a drink. The winning team is announced, and awards are given out by our coordinator. All participants will get a small souvenir from the program, but the award goes to the quickest ones who in turn are the winning team!

OPTIONAL EXTRA SERVICES

Adventure of the future - upgraded version of the treasure hunt program is geocache, where the guests use Tablets and GPS coordinates for locating the hidden places.

 

Budapest Mysteries – Enigma Solving Games

 

Mystery and scheming spiced up with a little bit of crime, all waiting to be solved. After the shocking experience that something has been stolen, or somebody have been attacked, police and investigators welcome the help of expert teams. For this time, you and your colleagues can be part of these expert teams, which consist of different professionals of detectives, labour analysts, ballistics experts or coroners, etc. To begin, the Chief Investigator appears, hands over the brief report as well as some clues which are essential for our team, if ever they are to solve the crime. Watch out for further clues, which can be hidden anywhere… on the street, under the dinner table, or in a ruin pub. It’s up to you to collect them. But the end result is not that trivial; teams have to use their creativity, real and social knowledge in maths and historical enigmas in order to have the final solution to the mystery: Who did it? When? Why? All must be revealed…

GROUP SIZE from 10 to 500+ guests

POSSIBLE LOCATION any location – complementary game during events, dinners, workshops /in or outdoor

TRANSPORTATION not needed

RECOMMENDED SEASON any season

 

Please note that Bloody Budapest is a fun complimentary program for company dinners or parties or can accompany a longer workshop for several days depending on level of difficulty. Bloody Budapest is a team building game with fake ‘murders’. The point is that everyone gets a task (a ’way of killing’ – ex: Make Martin taste your cocktail…Sing a song together with Susan or simply borrow a pen from Peter…) and the name of a colleague (’the victim’). You have to make an elaborate and creative plan to make your colleague do this task – of course, without him/her noticing it! If you succeed your ’victim’ is out of the game i.e. ‘dead’ and you take over his/her task. There can be only one in the end! But take care while planning your murder… you are hunted by someone as well… It is an excellent game for participants who did not know each other very well before to get acquainted with each other (the first task is to find your victim and get in touch with him/her without getting suspected) and a unique team building exercise to support self-organised team work, as for most tasks, you will need helpers. All games are handled onsite by our coordinators.

OPTIONAL EXTRA SERVICES

The ’killer tasks’ can be adapted to the location or event theme.

RECOMMENDED SEASON any season

 

Generally an AD shooting needs 1-2 weeks of preparation and at least 2-3 complete days of shooting, as professionals work on and realize every little element of those eye-catching 30 seconds. This time your entire team participates in making a complete shooting, (from the set building, to the makeup, and even the special effects), an AD, a clip, or just a short film in no more than a few hours – it’s almost a new Guinness world record! Dresses and props will all be available for the guests as all roles – director, PAs, makeup artists, stylists, actors, camera assistants, etc – will be ‘played’ by participants, depending on which role they picked at the beginning! UNDERGUIDE will have prepared the entire works’ creative and time schedule and will control all the work flow to make things run smoothly. Professional equipment and support teams will also be there to help teams work, but the film has to be implemented by the people of the company. ‘Backstage’ photos can be presented at the end of the program, while the final short or clip can be presented on the day after, following some post-shooting technical work, and cutting by professionals. The end result can also be used and shown at further company events – it will be such a great memory for everybody! The program highly enforces team work and is also a huge amount of fun! The script and theme will be adapted to your group’s profile. A few ideas that we have come up with in 2014:

  • The company’s insider AD for a new product or brand launch made by your team for your colleagues;
  • Remake the song and clip of Queen’s ‘Tavaszi Szél’, a Hungarian song that Freddy Mercury sang when they first came for a concert behind the Iron Curtain in 1986!

FLASHMOB

A classic flashmob is a group of people who assemble suddenly in a public place, perform an unusual and seemingly pointless act for a brief time, then quickly disperse, often for the purposes of entertainment, satire, and artistic expression. In our case we will not leave every detail to luck: we will have all necessary permits to occupy the area for an hour. To to do the shooting, we will have prepared the ’act to perform’, we will have coordinators and a director on site and we will have one of the best teams in Budapest recording the entire event! The script and theme will be adapted to your group’s profile. A few ideas that we have thought of in 2014:

  • Company pillow fight, yoga positions, ‘kill your mobile’, dancing flashmobs etc.
  • Flying drone camera shot formations (ex: company logo or ‘merry christmas’formed by your team)

 

FOLK DANCE PERFORMANCE

There is no better way to have a personal impression of real traditional Hungarian music & folklore than to participate, and nothing better to have some laughter & fun, and to make your team ‘feel the common rhythm’ then to take them for a dance, with everyone together! Hungarian ‘Csárdás’ dance is well known worldwide, and there is an infinite variety of traditional dances to learn. Hungarian ‘Táncház’, aka ‘community dance method’ has been approved by UNESCO as a Hungarian Intellectual Cultural Heritage in 2011 – you want to see real local folklore? Come and dance! Dancers and teachers of one of the very best Hungarian Folk Dance ensembles - will teach your group a dance to traditional ‘hot’ Hungarian rhythm and a simple song for ‘advanced participants’!

For those who would like to see the actual slaughter, it’s possible, you just have to wake up early and have an extra pálinka! After the spirits, the work is started and all hands will be needed! You will be able to see how to make and season the traditional Hungarian black pudding and sausage, how to cut up the parts and prepare them for smoking, and of course, during the procedure for breakfast, you can taste a previous slaughter’s ham, lard, and sausages with fresh homemade bread. You’ll have great fun eating, drinking pálinka
