A 5-10 minute phone conversation is all we need to provide a high quality virtual event for your individual community.
Once your virtual event has been booked, provide your amazing group with the date, time, and video conference link so they can log in on their smart phone or laptop. We'll gladly provide customized invite verbiage, a flyer, and a graphic to help market your virtual soiree (for a small fee).
Host moderates entire event with themed background to create an entertaining ambiance. From the moment your group joins the video call, they are immersed in fun they can see.
Our experienced host greets every player when they log in and makes them feel comfortable throughout the event. They ensure everyone has a stress-free and wildly entertaining time making new friends from the safety of their own home.
Technology can be easy for some, hard for others. No worries! Our host talks your members through every tech step necessary once they join the live video conference call.
Every type of virtual entertainment is created with one goal in mind --> Connect with group members through safe, comfortable, and social fun. It's what we love to do!

Our Story

In-person events since 2016 | Virtual events since 2020

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

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 people through events that are virtual, comfortable, fun, AND social. Our enthusiastic answer is Switchboard Games!

Our name was created with old school Switchboard Operators in mind. Just like them, we are dedicated to "connecting" people. But instead of using cables and phones, we use fun and games!

In 2016, we began hosting in-person events that were designed to encourage small group interactions. Various forms of themed entertainment were spread out at multiple stations. Each round saw friendly people switch stations and make new friends while enjoying different fun.

When social distancing became necessary in 2020, we immediately pivoted to hosting virtual events on live Zoom calls. It was exciting to see that our one-of-a-kind brand of game, trivia, and bingo events work perfectly in this format (due to the small group interactions that can take place in breakout rooms)!

We're thrilled to be able to continue bringing people together when they need each other the most. What's more, we now have the ability and honor to entertain/connect groups across the US. Needless to say, we truly love what we do, the leaders we assist, and the people we virtually connect along the way!

Jennifer Nagel
Greystar - Senior Director of Real Estate

"Our residents absolutely loved the virtual game night we hosted with Switchboard Games! It was amazing to see people laughing, smiling, and having fun during this difficult time we are all going through. We highly recommend trying this event out for your residents to help them connect with each other while we are all stuck at home."

Shannon Dezek
Alliance Residential - Business Manager

"Switchboard Games has been a FANTASTIC company to work with during these crazy times! Getting creative with running events virtually has been a new challenge that we are all facing, but they take all of the obstacles from you and make it easy to enjoy the fun! Using Switchboard Games has been a great way to keep our residents engaged while keeping the sense of community alive here at our properties! Thank you, Switchboard Games, for taking all of the work off of our plate and allowing us to create fun new memories with our residents!"

Lindsay Bogati
Fairfield Residential - Resident Service Coordinator for 3 Communities

"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."

Amber Peralez
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."

Ruby Le
Good Gentleman President/Single Social Introverts SD Organizer

"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."
