Games for Good
Gr8er Good Games is a San Francisco-based social enterprise. Our mission is to embed a culture of play and social good through races, scavenger hunts and games. We host public and private events for groups from 5 to 500 and recently launched our Remote Teambuilding game, Telemystery Boxes. Our events always incorporate social good activities, that we developed through years of partnerships with nonprofits throughout the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond.
