We save community managers time and make them look great by connecting their neighborhoods through recurring events that are comfortable, fun, and social. All of our unique San Diego events see us plan, host, and entertain so residents of all ages truly enjoy meeting their neighbors and love where they live.

Community Connectors

Leaders at residential communities have A LOT to do and less time to do it in. We know because we used to manage businesses ourselves. That said, we're excited to assist! Our goal is to help community managers by fully hosting a variety of themed, fun, and social events designed to comfortably connect residents, save managers time/stress, and improve their bottom line.

How it works:

- We plan, decorate, place signage, setup, check-in, host, MC, entertain, give out prizes, and clean up each event so managers can focus on other vital tasks.

- All of our various types of events utilize themed decorations, engaging fun, and experienced hosts to ensure neighbors become friends.

- Managers improve their bottom line due to happier/loyal residents.

Why we're good at it:

- Experience - We successfully managed multi-million dollar businesses in big group entertainment.

- Innovation - We created the concept of social entertainment in 2016 and have been throwing events ever since.

- Fully Insured - We have General Liability Insurance and Workers Comp to work with nearly any company.

- Local - Allows us to give the royal treatment to communities in the San Diego area (Oceanside --> Mexico border).

- Passion - Connecting residents and helping managers is what we love to do.



Providing one-of-a-kind events can be mighty tough. That’s why we’re here! We enthusiastically do the heavy lifting so your group enjoys social entertainment while you focus on other priorities. Here’s how we help:

  • Planning


A quick phone conversation is all we need to provide a high quality event. Once we grasp management's goals, we take the reigns to plan every event detail.
We transform the community space (either indoors or out) into a fun and engaging zone. Every supply necessary (outside of furniture) is delivered and set up by our 2 host team.
Select props, decor, signage, and accessories are used to vividly illustrate an entertaining theme. From the moment they walk in the door, residents are immersed in fun they can see.
Our experienced team is excited to greet guests and make them feel comfortable throughout the event. We aim to ensure everyone has a stress-free and wildly entertaining time hanging out with old friends while making new ones.
Every themed/entertaining type of event offers fun, games, art, challenges, and projects that tie into the event theme. We bring all the materials and know-how necessary to ensure residents have a blast with new neighborhood pals.
After the fun and festivities, our team organizes and cleans the community space so it looks exactly like it did when we arrived.

Our Story

Hosting San Diego events since May 2016

Our fascination with social entertainment began growing up in small towns with no fun nearby. It grew quickly through 14 years of managing movie theaters & amusement parks while simultaneously receiving management degrees.

As our work experience progressed to lead bigger businesses and live in larger cities, our passion increased with it. However, the more people we entertained and lived near, the less real connections we experienced. This led us to wonder if the power of entertainment could be used to effectively connect neighborhoods through events that are comfortable, fun, AND social. Our enthusiastic answer is Switchboard Games!

We love what we do, the managers we assist, and the residents we connect along the way!


Curious what an event with social entertainment looks like? Wonder no more! Spoiler alert – Sooooo many laughs and big smiles.


Their fun is your gain!  Connect your community through our unique fun to satisfy residents and boost income!


"I am a manager for a high-rise residential building and we threw a game night at a local restaurant with Ryan and Switchboard Games and my residents had an absolute blast. Ryan was an amazing host and his outside the box thinking, to create something so engaging and fun for people, really brought our residents closer and several new friendships were made. I look forward to doing this again and highly recommend using him at your next event."

Manager - ICON Condominiums

"As a host of several single mixer groups, I am always trying to come up with new ways to help my attendees mix and mingle.

Collaborating and attending a couple games night hosted by Switchboard was the perfect way to ease the anxiety, awkwardness, and uncomfortable atmosphere mixers can have. They, also, eased the facilitation process for me as a host. I highly recommend attending their events (it's really a great way to make new connections) and if you want to host a community event, collaborate with them to see how they can help."

"I've thrown many events throughout multiple venues in San Diego and every time I added Switchboard Games, it elevated the event to another level. Seeing guests smile constantly and having fun by bringing them back to classic games; made these events more entertaining and enjoyable for everyone. These games are an automatic ice-breaker, comfortably making even the shyest of guest a social butterfly. I never question utilizing Switchboard Games at every opportunity."

Nic Alonzo
Theatre Box San Diego - Marketing & Events Sales Manager

"Switchboard Games is synonymous with “guaranteed fun”! They take great care in organizing their events and insuring everyone is involved and having a wonderful time. The concept of taking classic games and making them vertical is genius! The set up is perfect for an all inclusive group interaction and keeps the games safe from food or drink spillage. Switchboard Games really takes networking and social events to the next level!"

Donna Callahan
Mission Brewery Events Manager

"Switchboard Games took our event to the next level. It added a fun, much-needed interactive element that all of our guests loved! Ryan was great to work with and I would highly recommend Switchboard Games for any event."

Caitlin Marr
Quartyard San Diego Events Manager

"Our brewery had a 1 year anniversary party and switchboard games was an incredible addition. We were not sure how our normal clientele would receive the vertical games but everyone LOVED them! It was a great social and casual, fun activity to do at our brewery and complimented our party perfectly. I would highly recommend at least trying it out, you would be surprised how much people love them. Ryan was so easy to work with. He was responsive and timely and very personable. Overall, great service, great experience, and we would definitely use them again for a future event."

Hanna Pruzansky
Bay City Brewery Events Manager

"Switchboard Games made our church singles' event a success! We brought together 50+ people who didn't know each other, played Switchboard Games for a couple hours and by the end of the night, everyone was friends with everyone. Ryan and his team made the whole evening so simple for us; they booked the venue, set up everything and customized the games specifically for our group. I would highly recommend Switchboard Games for any group that is looking to build community quickly and naturally in a stress-free setting."

Alyssa Miller
Grace Church San Diego 20-30's Age Singles Group Leader

"Switch Board Games ignites playful creativity for young and old. Our parents and children enjoy the family friendly vertical games and encouraging services offered. This is a clever and interactive approach to board games."
