About Off The Couch, Inc.
Off The Couch, Inc. provides live adventure games in which teams of players solve a series of puzzles using clues, hints, and strategy to complete the objectives at hand. Players are given a time limit to unveil the secret plot which is hidden within the rooms. This form of team building is designed to provide a fun and intellectually stimulating activity for businesses, families, and friends, alike. Only by working together and combining their knowledge are groups able to successfully win the game.
We started off as a group of friends who shared a passion for escape rooms. In 2015, we decided to build our own company to bring the best escape room experiences to the Bay Area to encourage the community to interact with each other, use their minds in new ways, and most importantly… get off the couch.
