Our game takes place in a fictional agency, where players are starting their first day as a new business coordinator. They are able to select the type of brief they want to work on, interact with non-player characters and navigate through various agency departments.
The experience features four mini games for players to explore. Each highlights a stage in the pitching process, from the brief to the team brainstorm, to building the deck and, of course, the final presentation. And because we love to surprise and delight, there are also a few Easter eggs scattered throughout, including an augmented-reality bonus game and relatable agency chatter.
How to Play
- Start by choosing your player name, avatar and the type of brief you would like to work on. The options are Financial services, Beauty, Retail, D2C services (app) or CPG.
- After getting a birds’-eye view of the agency, you’ll be dropped in the office’s reception. You can walk around the office using your arrow keys and interact with characters that have an icon over their head by hitting the space bar.
- You can use the phone menu button in the bottom right-hand corner of your screen to navigate through the experience.
- Explore the agency office and search for the 4 game experiences. Note, you must play each of them in order to unlock the next experience:
- 1. Brief Spirit - Help the team by running over to the strategy team to collect the brief. Make sure you avoid distractions! You can review the brief once completed.
- 2. Brainstorm - Collect all the great ideas from the brainstorm and avoid tangents or bad vibes. Make sure you review your notes after you’ve completed the game.
- 3. Deck Build - Someone has double-printed the deck! You’ll need to go in and identify the dupes during your final QA. Once you’ve finished, you can do your final prep by reviewing some questions that might come up.
- 4. Big Pitch - Step up to take the lead on the final presentation. Successfully hit the beats of the presentation to climb the leaderboard and end your first day on a high note!
- For bonus experiences, make sure you check in with your colleagues, connect with the Snapchat rep, read the post-meeting notes and explore the yoga room.
- Once completed, you can explore the office further or replay some of your favourite game experiences for a chance to win!
- You will also have the opportunity to download the notes and information covered after each game.

Scoring and Winning Agency Determination
The Snapchat Agency Adventure Game contained on the Website features four (4) mini games (specifically, ‘Brief Sprint’, ‘Brainstorm’, ‘Deck Build’ and ‘Big Pitch’). Each mini game is scored individually, and contributes to your cumulative total score on the Website (the ‘Total Score’). Each respective mini game may be played more than once. However, the Website will only assign one score to each mini game, using the score from the most recent round in which the mini game was played. Therefore, for each additional round of the mini game that is played, the mini game will receive a new score that replaces the previous score. Following the conclusion of the Contest Period, all eligible Entries received will be sorted and assigned to the applicable Agency employer of each Entrant. Each Agency will be assigned a final score equal to the average Total Score of the highest three (3) Entries attributable to that Agency (the ‘Agency Score’). If an applicable Agency has fewer than three (3) total entries, then the Agency Score will be the average Total Score of all Entr(ies) attributable to that Agency. The Agency that receives the highest Agency Score will be deemed the potential winner. In the event of a tie, a tie-breaker will be employed using the highest single Entry Total Score attributed to each of the tied Agencies. The Sponsor reserves the right to not award a prize if, at its sole discretion, it does not receive a sufficient number of eligible and qualified entries for that prize. All decisions of the Sponsor are final and binding. The Sponsor will not reveal the Agency Scores or the scores for any individual Entry.
Potential winners will be notified by email and may be asked to execute and return a publicity release. If a potential winner does not respond to the initial notification within the time period stated in the email notification, does not return all required documentation within the time period stated, or if a prize notification or prize is returned as undeliverable, or such potential winner is not in compliance with these rules, the prize will be forfeited and, at the Sponsor’s discretion, a runner-up will be notified.
Charitable donation by the Sponsor to the amount of £4,000 (the ‘Sponsor Donation’).
The winning Agency shall have the option to decide which of the following eligible charities will receive the Sponsor Donation: Making the Leap, Social Mobility Foundation, Media Trust and SuitUp (each an ‘Eligible Charity’). For the avoidance of doubt, all costs associated with the Sponsor Donation shall be the responsibility of the Sponsor. Prizes are awarded ‘as is’ with no warranty or guarantee, either express or implied. Winners may not substitute, assign or transfer the prize, but the Sponsor reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to substitute a prize of comparable or greater value. Prizes are not redeemable for cash. All prize details are at the Sponsor’s sole discretion. Limit one (1) prize per winning Agency.
