Explaining the idea of our games in words is very difficult. It is like explaining what a movie is to a person who has never seen a TV set.
We were very happy to learn that there is an episode of the Simpsons where they participate in a game very similar to a Questoria. Spend just 74 seconds of your life watching this clip and the question «What are Questories?» will be more or less clear to you.
Questories are story games for birthdays, corporate parties and children’s holidays. On weekends, we also organize scheduled open games. Questories are not tied to a specific location, instead the Host will bring a game to your home, office, cafe or picnic in the countryside.
We know how difficult it is to entertain a big crowd and to introduce them to each other. We have created Questories to get your guests off their phones, and have them mix and mingle freely and naturally.
Imagine yourself as a co-star in the movie «The Hateful Eight» or «Pirates of the Caribbean». You have a backstory telling how you have ended up in this situation. And it’s only up to you how the situation will develop further on. Unlike in a movie, you don’t have to memorize the lines from a screenplay. Each hero has their own goals. And it’s up to you to decide how to achieve them: by scheming or brute force, using flirtation or your charisma.
«From the very beginning, you realize that all these people around you are hiding something»
For example, the «Somewhere in the Wild West» Questoria starts with the discovery of a famous singer’s dead body in a saloon. The sheriff blocks the door, shoots his colt upwards, and declares that nobody will leave the saloon until the killer is found. And you see different people around stuck in the middle of the scene: cowboys, smugglers, a dancer, a shaman, a clairvoyant, and a dozen other colorful characters.
Everyone has their own goals: solve the case or fool the investigation, find parents or sell the smuggled goods, get married or find out an ancient aboriginal recipe.
You have artifacts and skills to help you, and instructions on how to use them. For example, weapons, jewelry, and potions... At first, you might be lost among all these options. But soon, you will be so captured by the action that you will easily trade the love potion for the last will document, or your faithful Colt for the old aboriginal map.
Those who fulfill their goals win, so the heroes differ from event to event. One thing remains unchanged: the game is bound to be a hot topic for several weeks to come :)
«We now call each other by their character names from the game!»
People of different ages and from various groups easily find common ground in the game. Would you like to bring your co-workers, school friends and parents together at your birthday party? Questoria will give your guests a common topic to chat about, and the choice of roles is suited for all ages.
Are you planning a corporate party? Questoria will introduce employees from various departments in a nice and casual manner, and thanks to the individual role-selection procedure we will find suitable characters for both the company director and the most timid team-member.
And what’s more, you will level up your skills in negotiating and achieving goals.
