You might be surprised to know that something as simple as choosing the right name for your team can set the tone for an awesome escape experience! Basic human psychology suggests that a sense of belonging to a shared cause can stimulate levels of motivation, determination and all-round positive vibes!
Before taking a trip to your favourite escape room venue, have a think about what your team name should be. Let’s take a look at why and how you should go about doing so…
Sense of Belonging
Regardless of the activity, being part of a team just feels better. Whether you’re playing sports or video games, competitively debating or taking part in a quiz night – working towards a shared goal while part of a collective unit is one of life’s greatest pleasures.
Naming your collective unit only adds to the sense of belonging and creates an “Us-Against-The-World” type feeling, which can be a highly motivating factor and ultimately increase your drive to escape in time.
The all-important question still remains: what should your team name be?
Picking an escape room team name is serious business! The name should accurately reflect the personalities of its several team members while being memorable and creative enough to elicit some laughs from the venue’s game masters!
We’ve seen countless groups look befuddled when asked the simple question: “what’s your team name?” followed by several minutes of arguing, bickering and plenty of, “umm, uuh, hmmm”.
Arriving prepared and ready to rock n’ roll is the right mindset to have! Here’s a rough step-by-step guide to getting you started:
1. Pick a theme
2. Convey a message
3. Keep it short, snappy or catchy
4. Think of several options
5. Vote on the best one!
