Trapology Escape Room Boston Team Building Game night fun

The team at Trapology Boston hosted an awesome Boston board game night this week. It was a night filled with laughter, goofy antics, and of course, inevitable blaming. I took a second to step back and look back at the people that sat in front of me and the facility that we were sitting in. We had been having these Boston board game nights on a regular monthly basis, and it’s something I look forward to.

Eight months ago, Jason and I longingly looked at a beautiful 5th floor, 2500 square feet property that overlooked the Boston Common. The ceilings were tall, floors were polished, views were spectacular, and the monthly rent… well, that was spectacular in its own way. We were heartbroken, but there was a silver lining: We were lucky enough that the 2nd floor was available, and we somehow managed to rub two pennies together to make this piece of property work for us. Neither Jason nor I are strangers to hard work. We were committed to making this venture work, no matter how many people called us crazy. (“People pay you to lock them up?”) After countless hours of sanding, painting, and sweating, (with special thanks to Bob, Erin, and my Dad) we launched our first escape game – the Drunk Tank. It was an absurd idea that was born from a long wifi-less flight from Tanzania.

If you had told me eight months ago that we would have grown our measly team of just him and I, to a ridiculous family that collectively speaks eight languages, possesses unusual special talents (animation, karate, love of baby vomit scents, and doggie daycare), and varies in height from 5’0″-6’5″, I’d tell you that you were batsh’t crazy. Well… this crazy Trapology Boston family is the reason why we’re still alive, kicking, and having an amazing time. Escape rooms have been popping up around every corner. Maybe they’ll be flashier, more popular, and higher tech than ours, but one thing is for sure… their Boston escape room team will NEVER be as awesome. I’m also pretty sure that I cherry-picked some of the most competitive people in the city and so, we’re dedicated to constantly improvement so that our games stay on top!

This week, we welcomed two more people to our Trapology team – Micha and Carolina. We celebrated with an after-hours game night that was filled with inappropriateness, embarrassing stories, and infectious laughter. We’re excited that they’re on this fast-paced journey with us as Trapology Boston builds Game #3, and *drumroll* expands to the 5th floor! To our firecracker manager (and fearless leader), Tina, we have no doubt that you will keep us all in check. Who knew that when Jason and I hired you, that you would end up being OUR boss, too? 🙂 Nate and Pam, our middle management team, it is without a doubt that you both will be fantastic role models for our newbies. During game master training, try to share the Sour Patch Kids with them, yes? V, we miss you. Thanks for coming back and keeping us in your life! We attribute much of our success to your suggestions and constant feedback. Karen, you’re my rock. My life wouldn’t function without you. Jason, our bossman stressball leader, we all think that you should spend more time in the corner of the lobby (and not in the control room). 🙂

Without all of you, we wouldn’t be here. Thank you for all you’ve done for us. Every time I walk into Trap, I’m still a bit in awe of what we’ve built together. You all are awesome. Cheers to many more boston board game nights together.

 

Love,
Nikki

    There may be a lot more duties and responsibilities an internet developer might need to perform,
    which often is based upon the requirement of this job
    he’s working on. Web programmers play with a very crucial
    part in the market today. While they should have the
    ability to communicate efficiently to be able to understand what is required to find the work done,
    the majority of their job is completed independently.

    Backend web developers utilize coding languages to be certain all the features at
    the site actually do the job.
