Guest mode is a feature that allows Funtivity event hosts to play along with other meeting participants who do not already have the Funtivity app installed.
This is helpful for anyone who has a premium Funtivity host license or would like to host large meetings where they cannot guarantee every participant will have the app already installed.
In the video above, you can view what the host's process for inviting others will look like on the left side of the screen. On the right side of the screen, you can view what the participants will see when they are invited to play along in guest mode.

If it's your turn to draw, choose one of the 3 word options that you like best. Try using the drawing tools to help others guess your word.
Name that Person is an icebreaker where you and the other meeting participants become the star of the questions on the spot.
To begin, you will each answer one unique survey question about yourselves. The system will use your answers to automatically generate new icebreaker questions once you are all done answering the survey question.
When it's time to answer the trivia questions, enjoy some friendly competition while learning new things about your team members.
One Minute Story is an improv-style game where you will take turns telling short stories using improv prompts to compete for the most claps.
When it's your turn to tell a story, use the prompt and hints to make up something funny, creative, and interesting so that you earn more claps from others.
When it's time to listen to another player's story, be sure to clap to express when you enjoy their story. The person with the most claps at the end will win!
Funtivity has a variety of different Escape Rooms, all with different themes and puzzles, that require quick-thinking, creativity, and teamwork. These are a great option for small groups to play in teams (we recommend less that 20 people total).
Each escape room is different, but this video features the End of Line Escape Room to demonstrate how to launch the room and locate different puzzles or hints.
