Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Hosted Activity?

Our Hosted Activities are all 45 to 90 minutes in duration, moderated by our amazing team members, and feature gaming experiences that we’ve hand picked and developed specifically for a virtual format. Many of these activities utilize breakout rooms, so we provide 1 host for every ~5 participants to make sure you have all the energy and hype you need to have a great time! For around the price of a movie ticket, we’ll treat you to a fun, unique experience that you’ll never forget.

What times are available to book your Hosted Activities?

Our activities are available for booking 24 hours a day / 7 days a week! While we have never turned a client down due to lack of availability, we do kindly ask that groups up to 30 participants give us at least 2 days’ notice, and groups of greater than 30 participants give us at least 1 weeks’ notice.

What is the duration of your Hosted Activities?

All of our Hosted Activities are designed to be delivered in 45 to 90 minutes. The exact duration of each activity can be found by clicking on the activity from the Hosted Activities page.

What video conferencing platforms do you support?

We support all of the “Big Four” platforms - Zoom, Google Meet, Microsoft Teams, and Webex by Cisco. Don’t use one of those platforms? No problem. If we can download it and it has breakout rooms, we can use it :)

What languages do your Hosts speak?

We can assign you Hosts that speak English, Mandarin Chinese, Cantonese, Bahasa Melayu/Indonesia, Spanish, Russian, Polish, or Ukrainian!If you would like a non-English speaking host, you can request this at the checkout page. However, please do note that all of our game content is currently only available in English and Spanish.

What is the maximum group size you can host?

The largest group we’ve ever hosted was 1,250 participants! If your group falls under that, then it will be no problem for us to host you. If your group is larger than that, reach out to us over phone, chat or email. We should be able to support you, but there may be some technical limitations with the mainstream web conferencing software that we’ll need to work around. Don’t worry, we’re experts at this stuff so you don’t have to be!

What are the payment terms for your Hosted Activities?

We operate on a two invoice model. To confirm your activity, you will pay a 30% deposit of the total amount up-front. Then, we will issue you an invoice to pay the remaining balance after the activity is completed. Have additional participants joining last minute? No worries! We will add those participants to the final invoice.

I booked my activity but it looks like LESS participants than I expected will turn up! Can I get a refund?

As long as you let us know at least 72 hours before your activity how many participants you’ll be expecting, we’ll be happy to refund you the deposit difference if that number is lower than what you originally expected! However, within 72 hours we will lock in the minimum number of participants as we also need to schedule our Hosts and can’t cancel on them at the last minute.

I booked my activity and it looks like MORE participants than I expected will turn up! What should I do?

Awesome, it’s going to be even more fun! You can add as many participants as you’d like, even at the last minute! If you can give us a heads up at least an hour or two before the activity starts, then we’ll also be able to add more Hosts to cater to your larger group. We have over 100 Hosts on staff, so this is no problem for us!

Can I join your Hosted Activities from a mobile device?

We recommend you to join the activity from a computer browser for the best experience. Our activities incorporate a number of games and puzzles that are best played and viewed from a computer.

Can children play?

Yes! We recommend our games for ages 13 and up, but can accommodate players of all ages. Some game content may be too difficult for players under 13 and an adult (18 or older) must participate with anyone under 15.

Where is Runaway Games based?

Our headquarters is in Singapore, where we are incorporated as Runaway Games Pte. Ltd. (UEN 202116535N). However, our team members are spread all over the world! We currently have teammates in the US, Jamaica, India, Peru, the Philippines, Malaysia, the UK, and Ukraine. We’re proud to be a remote-first company, and our team is distributed worldwide.

I have an issue, how can I get in touch with you?

Please feel free to call us at +1 415 800 3157 or chat with us here. Those lines of communication will get you directly in touch with someone that can help! We will entertain cold callers, but beware that we may also try to pitch you a virtual team building activity when you call :D
