March: Spaceteam Took Players for a Wild Ride
A Buzztime first, Spaceteam turned Buzztime Tablets into spaceship control panels. Players raced to repair a failing spaceship by shouting crazy commands. Known as “the party game played in ALL CAPS,” Spaceteam sparked social fun and created lively social scenes at bars and restaurants across North America. In the first month, there were over 700,000 Spaceteam gaming sessions! Everyone from big groups of friends to families took Spaceteam for a wild ride in 2017.
“This was so much fun! We just got a bunch of guests to join in and play – everyone was laughing.” -Manager of a restaurant in Tennessee the day Spaceteam launched
June: Countdown Heats Up Summer Gaming
Countdown Trivia was twice as nice in June…Countdown to Summer rewarded players with double PlayersPlus Points for every game. Countdown to Summer gave players a chance to move up the leaderboard faster, motivating them to play even more trivia (at your venue!) to rack up the points. Since Countdown runs daily from 2p-10p, Buzztime locations saw a boost in business during slower dayparts like mid-afternoons.
