How to navigate an Auto Weve or Open Weve

Weve+ Subscription, users have a chance to play without a live Host!

Welcome, Weve+ Subscribers! 🙌

Here is an overview of our unique offerings for our subscription users. Hosted Weve is our traditional offering for all Game Shows, Space Escape, & Mystery Express events. Auto & Open Weve events are run without a Host, which offers more flexibility for your schedule! 

Note: Auto & Open Weve are single room events and cannot be self scheduled with a Lobby. Single room events are for up to 25 attendees.

If you have multiple Open Weve links, feel free to specify them for different teams in your department!

So, how are these different from a Hosted Weve room?

Auto Weve Room:

These rooms are similar to a Hosted event in the sense that you'll choose a theme, date, and time then we'll do the rest for you. Each event will be 15-45 minutes long. The difference is that you will not have a live Host. Instead, you will experience pre-recorded Host videos that will guide you through the experience. Think of these as "auto-pilot" rooms. Auto Weve rooms can fit up to 25 people. Check out the below video for how to schedule an Open Weve

 

Open Weve Rooms:

You can join your Open Weve room anytime you'd like, as often as you want. Think of this like an open conference room. You can have a weekly meeting with your team and use a share screen feature, and then to end the meeting you can switch to PLAY and do a round of Trivia, Fact Match, and/or an epic team Lip Sync battle. This also gives you the option to become the Host! As the Host, you can select from a variety of mini-games and pre-created modules. Open Weve rooms can fit up to 25 people. Check out the below video for how to find your Open Weve links:

Let's talk about best practices & tips for navigating each!
