• It's time to play!

    Perfect for small groups looking to loosen up, unwind, and connect, our live-action games are created by Chicago's most innovative theatrical designers to give your team and clients an immersive and unforgettable experience.

    The original theatrical game experience! Players attempt to save the world from nuclear annihilation by collaborating to organize clues and solve puzzles throughout the immersive underground bunker.

    An all-new cooperative game that challenges two teams, aboard separate spaceships, to reunite and rescue one another. Manage resources, recover communications, and spacewalk to success.

  • The Last Defender and Nova to Lodestar are interactive games. Much like escape rooms, these are cooperative games where you, the players, must work together and communicate as a team to succeed. You do this by gathering and sharing information, solving puzzles, and working as a group to make increasingly difficult decisions.

    Get everyone participating using their imagination and critical thinking to aid the team.
