Every now and then we shut down the Name.com office for a few hours and gather everyone together for some wholesome team-building exercises (in other words, we act goofy and have some beers). Last Friday was one of those days, as we divided into teams for a scavenger hunt that took us (err … most of us) all over Denver.
- Teams were chosen randomly and given a sheet of clues. The clues directed us to treasure balls (vending machine capsules) hidden throughout the city.
- First team to return with all treasure balls wins
- No driving allowed. Bikes, walking, taxis, public transit … all fair game.
- Additional prizes were awarded for best team picture, most awkward New Domain sales pitch, and most team spirit.
Nic Steinbach (the Artist Formerly Known As New TLD Nic) and Ashley Forker (not a great go-kart driver) planned the scavenger hunt with a dozen destinations, mostly in the LoDo/LoHi area and around our Cherry Creek office. We had to collect a treasure ball at each destination, sometimes from a friendly bartender (Denver Beer Company, The Fainting Goat, Milwaukee Street Tavern …) who awaited us with an open bar tab.
