Beat The Bomb - Virtual Team Building
Get your hearts thumping, neurons firing, and mouths moving at a mile a minute!
Beat the Bomb is an immersive online team-building activity that puts your team’s communication and collaboration skills to the test! Solve puzzles and rack up points to earn enough time to defuse the bomb in the third challenge!
It’s time to say goodbye to Zoom fatigue and boredom! Beat the Bomb is unlike any other virtual game you’ve played before. Requiring teamwork and problem-solving, it can be used for brainstorming sessions, culture building activities or as a learning activity.
Winning bragging rights at work can be a lot of fun! Our 45 minute immersive virtual game consists of three different game packs:
What’s in Game Pack A?
Game 1 of 3: Sequencer (Numbers Game): Players hopscotch their way around multiple screens full of numbers and must work together to arrange them in unique sequences.
Game 2 of 3: Echo Chamber (Sound Game): Inspired by the popular game Simon, players must listen to sound patterns and then replay them back to the computer as a team.
Game 3 of 3: Cyberbot (Robot Game): Like Pac-Man on Steroids! Players must work together to drive a robot car and hit targets in order.
What’s in Game Pack B?
Game 1 of 3: Hack Attack (Information Game): Developed based on the lingo used by Astronauts speaking with Mission Control, in this game players must accurately input settings into each other’s Control Panels.
Game 2 of 3: Mad Dash (Avoidance Game): Like a virtual game of Bumper Cars, players must point-and-click their icons to targets on their screen while avoiding their colleagues.
Game 3 of 3: Block Monster (Brick-Breaker Game): Players control a paddle and destroy levels of bricks before their time runs out in this modern multiplayer twist on the 80s classic arcade game.

Beat the Bomb is all about working as a team to deactivate a time bomb within 45 minutes. Teams of 6 players must work together to win the game. It’s all about coordinating and communicating, giving the opportunity to all employees to contribute to the ultimate goal of winning the game! Beat the Bomb consists of three different mini-games; the first two games are 10 minutes each and allow you to acquire more time for the third round known as the Cyber Bot. Once the game finishes, the game host announces the winner and wraps up the session.
Yes! Ask everyone to grab their favorite drinks or send a 6-pack of beer to all remote employees for them to enjoy this virtual happy hour to the fullest. Hold the event on a Friday so that employees can completely relax, play Beat the Bomb and not worry about a hangover the next day. Such events will not only bring teams closer together but also create a healthier and happier remote work environment for all.
Beat the Bomb is great for smaller and larger groups, alike. You can host the event for a small virtual birthday party of 8 or for a corporate team-building event of 150 people. If you have a remote team across the world, it’s important to keep in mind the different time zones in order to select a convenient time for all employees.
Not at all! Like many of our virtual team experiences, Beat the Bomb requires no prior experience. So if most of your team haven’t participated in a virtual activity before, this one is perfect to get them chitchatting. Along with the cooperation and communication within the team to help new players, the dedicated host will make sure to explain everything clearly and make everyone feel relaxed in no time.
