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:
To begin with - We LOVE what we do! Here's how we found our passion.
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 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 nights, trivia, social bingo, game shows, creative fun, & holiday events work perfectly in this format (due to the small group interactions that can take place in breakout rooms)!
We're thrilled to bring people together when they need each other the most. What's more, we now have the ability to entertain/connect groups across the world and the experience needed to exceed expectations. Needless to say, we truly love what we do, the leaders we assist, and the people we connect along the way!
**Quick Note - If you found us, we're proud to say we didn't pay a dime to get you here. We spend $0 on marketing as we'd rather keep prices low. It's our goal to grow by having friendly sales chats, exceeding expectations, and giving back to both the amazing leaders we assist (through freebies, discounts, & referral rewards) and the incredible charities we donate to with every booking. Hey....when we say we're passionate about comfortable connections, that's not just with our events. It's evident with everything we do!
We're honored to speak with the news about our story, our event services, and our ability to continue doing what we love!

"Using Switchboard Games for my virtual events has made my life easier as an Activities Director, and provided us with options for things we would not have been able to do in-house. The hosts are engaging and fun, and my students always have a great time during these events. As a college with a huge online population, this has given us the opportunity to connect students from all across the country."

"Switchboard Games joined us for our annual Holiday Party - of course, this year over Zoom. They were fantastic and our host Donna did a wonderful job bringing the holiday spirit and keeping everyone engaged!

Overall, the event couldn't have gone more smooth from start to finish and we absolutely recommend them!"
