Boardroom Breakout takes the fun, creative and exciting aspects of an escape room and integrates corporate-level challenges to create an intellectually-stimulating team experience.
I get this is a type of team-building activity, but what exactly is this?
Great question! We assign a professional, engaging host to emcee your event from start-to-finish. Your host will divide your group into teams of 4 to 10 players. Each team will have its own game module at their own table. Your emcee will give a passionate 10-minute brief explaining the rules of the game. Your emcee will start a 65-minute countdown timer and the fun begins! Everyone competes at the same time. Once complete, the emcee will provide a short debrief and the Boardroom Breakout staff will pack up the modules and depart.
The entire experience from setup to break down is no more than 90 minutes. We are able to shorten the game duration to meet your scheduling needs.
What specifically happens at the event?
What are the game challenges like?
Nearly every escape room and on-site team building company utilizes rudimentary tasks such as completing jigsaw puzzles, stacking cups, using black lights, ball tossing and other summer-camp-style activities.
Do not worry. We do not do that!
While those games can be entertaining, they simply do not provide the intellectual and organizational challenges necessary to create an impactful experience that produces effective results and strengthens your team.
Boardroom Breakout participants will have to first determine the strategy that will work best for their team. They will initially be presented with a few conceptual problems that will require the entire group to hypothesize potential solutions. As the game continues, they will need to identify their individual strengths and weaknesses, organize detailed information and perfect their overall problem-solving process. As each minute passes, the tasks become more difficult and the competition heats up.
Boardroom Breakout will provide:
Any necessary staff members for large groups
Pens, markers and all other items needed for gameplay.
You will need to provide:
Event location (conference room, break room, banquet hall or any area that can accommodate a team of your size.)
Round 60-inch tables (ideal) or 6 to 8-foot rectangular tables for each team.
TV or projector to display the countdown timer and game clues (if unavailable, we can provide clues manually.)
Prize for winning team (optional and at your discretion, but highly recommended as most participants will ask, "What do we get if we win?!")

I see Boardroom Breakout is based in Dallas, Texas. Do you accommodate groups in other cities? If so, do you charge a transportation fee?
Boardroom Breakout is a nationwide service with staff in nearly every major city and surrounding areas. Unless you're in the middle nowhere, the odds are we can get to you!
If you are within Texas, there is no transportation fee. For all other cities, depending on the date of the event, size of the event and how well in advance you book, there may fees for transportation and lodging.
I'm planning a 3,000 person convention over 3 days?
Can you accommodate this type of event?
Of course! We have hosted some of the largest corporate gatherings such as regional meetings, annual conventions, leadership conferences, and off-site corporate retreats. No matter what your unique needs are, we can handle any challenge.
