We help leaders connect their group through Virtual Game or Trivia Events that are comfortable, fun, & social! Our MC's connect participants through unique entertainment enjoyed in large & small group formats.

Virtual Community Connectors

Our goal is to connect your people, save you time/stress, and provide an unforgettable experience. If you're a leader of a college, corporation, apartment, etc, you likely have a lot to do and less time to do it in. We know because we used to manage businesses ourselves. That's why we make every step of the process simple & easy. We do everything and don't require contracts or deposits. Just give us a few pieces of info and we're off!

How it works:

- We safely entertain/connect your group through Virtual Game or Trivia events.

- A Zoom link, marketing graphic, & event invitation are provided so you can easily promote your unique event.

- Your group clicks the link at the event start time to safely join on a computer or smartphone.

- Our host greets everyone, gives tech help, & ensures players meet each other through engaging fun.

- Participants are given rules, instructions, & encouragement in the large virtual room.

- Players are placed in virtual breakout rooms at strategic times to connect/play in small groups.

- Scores are kept with our online tracking system so players see where they rank in real time.

Our Story

Hosting in-person events since May 2016 | Hosting virtual events since March 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!

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 neighbors switch stations and make new friends while enjoying different fun.

When social distancing became necessary in 2020, we pivoted to hosting virtual events on live Zoom calls. It was genuinely exciting to see that our one-of-a-kind brand of game and trivia 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!

TESTIMONIALS

"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."
