Online Distance Shrinkers

The technology worked well – breakout rooms and shared screens – and it didn’t detract from the ATE-based non-techy fun.  It made me reflect on how doing an activity collectively shrunk distances – somehow playing games put us in the same space whilst family Zoom calls left to our own devices are often a bit disappointing.

At ATE, we know all there is to know about playing games and having fun. We’ve been honing our skills for over 50 years on our summer camps, school residentials, training courses, and other events, and now we’ve taken our expertise online.

Our facilitated online games are genuinely fun, with options for any occasion:

  • Virtual games night with friends or family
  • Team-building events for your company
  • Birthday parties for ages one to one hundred
  • Other celebrations and events like stag or hen dos, Christmas parties, and so on.

We are developing new games and activities all the time. Here are the three types we offer at the moment:

Ready-to-play Distance Shrinkers

We have five ready-made packages which are suitable for all ages, tastes, and group sizes. Our pricing structure is simple and competitive, and we will always work with you to make sure our games suit the needs of your group.

These games work brilliantly with four to twenty players, but we frequently work with groups of 40 and over. We have even been known to work with groups of over 300 on occasion!

Mini Distance Shrinkers

The data shows that remote working is beginning to negatively affect team dynamics, and over 70% of keyworkers report that they feel they are working beyond capacity. We absolutely do not have all the answers, but we can offer you and your team 15 minutes of play weekly; a chance to come together as a group, relax, laugh (a lot), and work cohesively to *foil our bad guy/be successful in your mission/find where the diamonds are buried.

*quest may vary according to seasonal peril, but we promise won’t look anything like the rest of your working week.

This package is designed with school staff in mind, but we think it would work just as well in any work setting. We charge £15 for each 15-minute session, with a minimum booking of eight sessions.

We were looking for a way to bring some fun and light relief into the week for the teaching staff at Crampton. Now that their weeks were full of Zoom live lessons and online learning platforms, we wanted to have a chance to bring the staff together to have some fun as a team as they are mostly working from home.

Bespoke Distance Shrinkers

We love a challenge. If you have your mind set on something special, get in touch and we’ll see what we can do. We have created and run an evening of Taskmaster style games, a three-part mystery to be solved over New Year’s Eve, a bespoke scavenger hunt, and lots of other creative events. Whatever your idea, big or small, we would love to help you realise it.


Our pricing structure is simple and competitive: for groups of up to 20, you simply pay a flat rate depending on the length of session you would like to book, and £5 per player.

Session length Flat rate Price per player
(up to 20 players)
60-minute session £45 £5
90-minute session £65 £5
120-minute session £85 £5
Mini Distance Shrinkers £15 per 15-minute session (minimum of 8 sessions) N/A
