How We Accidentally Created "One Of The Most Effective & Creative" Team Building Experiences In The World
To a caring manager looking out for your team,
I’m Ryan Hogan, founder of TeamBuildingKits.com, and if my time in the Navy taught me anything, it’s that teamwork is everything.
In the Navy, team building is what we live and breathe.
But hold that thought for a moment, and let’s fast forward a couple years.
In 2016, I co-founded Hunt a Killer—an “escape room in a box” where you receive physical clues every month in the mail to catch a serial killer.
Over 140,000 people have gone through the experience and loved it.
That’s only because of what I learned in the Navy about building and strengthening teams.
But what shocked me the most was that teams were already using Hunt a Killer for incredible team-building experiences.
We started hearing story after story about organizations having fun and growing stronger together from playing Hunt a Killer.
That’s when it hit me...
What If I Combined Everything I Learned From The Navy... With Hunt A Killer... To Create The Ultimate Team Building Experience?
It's team building, like never before
Every month, quarter, or year, you and your team get to take a break from “real life” and immerse yourself in a fantasy world where you band together to:
- Catch a serial killer
- Escape from Mars
- Stop a global epidemic from spreading
- Release a hostage
- And so much more
The Best Part:
All your team knows is they’re having a blast
But the unique experience digs even deeper:
- Reveals natural leaders and communicators
- Creates deep bonds, which make communication so much more efficient
- Enhances group problem-solving capacity
- And so much more

The best team building exercises we've done -- and at an amazing budget.
We spotted exceptional team members who before just blended in.
Revealed so much about our team in just 90 minutes. Unbelievable.
All we heard was laughter, yet we grew so much as a team.
A profound experience disguised as a game. The time flew by.
Weeks later, we are still living the 'buzz' this experience gave our entire company.
TBK tests our ability to solve complex problems and instills confidence to tackle any challenge.
Great for communication, collaboration, and listening.
I was able to observe my colleagues problem solve in a unique environment, and identify key areas of strength.
Teamwork, leadership and problem solving—every time we open our new Team Building Kit.
It helps us problem solve creatively as a team each and every month.
Team Building Kits automated (and improved) our monthly team building initiatives.

Makes Great Teams Into Super Teams. Here's How.
Strengthens bonds, increases productivity
Following the clues is challenging. Your team must band together and trust one another to get to the very satisfying conclusions.
The result: Trust is earned. Bonds are formed. Efficiency increases.
Fully automated. Just set aside the time, and follow the instructions in the box.
Retreats, bowling, escape rooms, and off-site meetings cost money... and tons of time.
Eliminate the need to go anywhere with our fun, imaginative, think-outside-the-box experiences that are delivered to your office regularly.
Reveals leaders & communicators
Who works best with whom? Which combination of people produces the best work?
As your team bands together to solve the mysteries, natural leaders and communicators are revealed. Some people will naturally organize others, become focal points for discussion, and provide encouragement and motivation.
As you watch with an eager eye, you'll spot the leaders, the groups that have the highest synergy, and more.
Improves retention and recruitment
When team members have deep bonds and friendships, they never quit. Team Building Kits facilitates these bonds and friendships by providing the perfect fun, "let loose" ambiance mixed with the right kind of challenge.
This is key because you put time and resources into finding and training top-notch employees.
Let's create a culture they'll never want to leave.
How It Works
Each Team Building Kit takes about 60-90 minutes to solve and includes a simple, easy-to-follow facilitator guide with enough game-play materials for a team of up to 20 people.
Everything is contained within a single box you can take literally anywhere.
The games encourage teammates to use their imaginations, interact, think critically, and solve for clues that lead to a concrete conclusion.
In addition, the game facilitator receives access to an online community full of forward-thinking workplace culture enthusiasts.
That means you can discuss your game with other powerhouses in culture creation, and get ideas for strengthening your own.
Your First Experience
In 1973, the founding member of the band FLUF was murdered…
Police claim to have solved the case, but things aren’t adding up.
FLUF was a struggling band with low record sales until founding member Darryl Fanton was discovered dead in his motel room.
The band was suddenly popular, benefitting from media coverage of the gruesome murder.
Their self-titled debut album jumped up the charts and FLUF earned its place in rock’n’roll lore.
The 1973 experience revisits the case to find out, once and for all, who murdered Darryl Fanton?
