  • The Ingenious Mr. Thornbacker is a professional, week-long mystery contest that normally costs $25 PER person, but will be 100% FREE during this promotion.  It fits into the background of any normal workweek, so you don’t have to leave the office or take extra time off work. 
  • Everything runs through email and the web, making it super simple for you.
  • You get to pick the teams.  It works with as few as two people per team, or as many as 10 per team.  Mix and match however you want.
  • The mystery kicks off when you announce to the staff that you'll be holding a contest and have a special SECRET prize picked out for the winners (this announcement will be provided for you to copy and paste into your own office email). That's all the information you can give at the time, but everyone should keep an eye out for an email the next day.
  • The following morning Smart Team Building will send hilarious emails to each of the teams detailing how someone in your office has been leading a double life, and how their team must now win this contest.
  • You'll be amazed how fast everyone is energized and how quickly the office fills with laughter and smiles.  It truly makes for a fun workweek! 
  • Teams compete over the course of the week to solve the mystery and win the game, giving new life to an otherwise ordinary workweek.  Each day the teams will get new emails, new missions, and new clues. They must strategize, communicate, and come together as a unit to win.
  • "Missions" only take 5 minutes a day to complete, but they’ll be talking about it all day. The goal is to make their week more enjoyable, not add more work to it!
  • The plot involves twists, turns, clues, and tons of humor. There are jokes, hidden clues, riddles, talent competitions, trivia, and contests of all kinds.
Johanna... Our staff had a BLAST!!! If was fun to see everyone laughing and working together in a different way! The 3 days of activities were also very exciting!

Staff Meeting

At the end of your week, you hold a 45-minute staff meeting as the finale that includes half a dozen contests and games.  You could do this as a special lunch or an after work get together – it’s completely up to you. There will be plenty of prizes and staff appreciation.  The staff meeting finale is a refreshing opportunity for everyone to come together to relieve stress and laugh. 

Normally we run the weeks from a Monday to Friday, but this meeting doesn't have to be on a Friday, it can actually be any day of the week.  For example, if you want to hold your meeting on a Wednesday, we'll just start your adventure week on the prior Thursday.

IT WAS OFF THE HOOK!!! Everyone loved it and we just now finished up. They left here laughing and loved the entire process. I will send the pictures and video uploads. This has been the best event I have done in three years!
— Shawn Moore

  Why is this free?  Will I be billed?

Yes, it’s 100% free.  No, you will not be billed.

Team building and staff morale is an ongoing process, and Smart Team Building is a one-of-a-kind, year-long team building and morale membership service with a reputation built over 14 years.   Our membership is $699/year, but you won't be asked to think about that or commit to anything right now.  After your week, we will send you information on how you can sign up for our membership if you so desire, and this boost will just be the beginning.  But signing up for more is not required and will be totally up to you.  It’s fine for you to use this boost for free, enjoy the results, and not sign up for more.

We just want you to see what we can do.

The only "cost" you are responsible for with this free morale boost is for a prize for the winning team. However, you’ll even be given a list of budget-friendly prize ideas so you won’t have to spend a dime!

Our staff enjoyed every minute of this contest!! We are seriously considering membership.
— Christy Jordan and Eric Bransteter

 What to Expect

Fill out the quick registration above and we'll email you a welcome packet and a team roster.  You fill out the roster by forming the office teams however you desire, email it back, and that’s it!  Smart Team Building will take it from there!
