It’s one of those days in the office.
You’re feeling a little flat, a little unmotivated.
It would be the perfect time to tap one of those crazy orange jumpsuited Go Gamers and have them whip out some team building games that leave you bursting with fruit flavor and energy!
Alas, we can’t live in your office all the time (turns out Go Gamers need to be fed, watered and loved and can’t survive permanently in an office corner. Who knew?!) but we can give you some awesome suggestions to get some team building into your day and have your office vibing at a minutes’ notice.
1. Human Hamburger
Totally not as gross as it sounds! Grab some Post Its, tape and a marker, then tape a burger ingredient to everyone’s back. Now, assemble the burger in an edible order! If you want to get really competitive, divide up into teams.
First burger off the grill wins all the glory!
2. Have an inanimate object photo shoot!
Grab the nearest office mug, plant or lamp and put it in some heartwarming/compromising positions. This is great inspiration:
3. Oreo Face Off!
Nicholas Cage never had so much fun! Start with a cookie on your forehead and using nothing but your facial expressions, get it into your mouth!
Sweet, simple, delicious.
4. The Mid-afternoon Office Twerk.
The original and the best: get an amazing song, blast it loud and get your dance on! Some suggestions: Footloose, Janelle Monae, a little MJ or maybe some Lady Gaga. Those few minutes can make a world of difference to your productivity, cardio fitness and happiness.
5. Air Guitar championships.
Instrument of your choice, song of your choice, dance moves of your choice. Head banging optional.
6. Stealth Disco.
Those of you who have played The Go Game before know the genius of some ninja-like dance moves. Captured on camera, or it didn’t happen!
7. Dress like your co-workers!
The day before, draw names out of a hat and dress like your assigned co-worker. Extra points for thoughtful touches that make it unmistakably them. As each person arrives in the morning, they should be easily identifiable!
Alternatively, grab a buddy and come to work tomorrow as a Work Twinsie! Prizes awarded for the best pair.
8. Awkward Glamour Shots.
We've all seen them. The poses, the props, the facial expressions.
It takes a lot of work to create the perfectly cringeworthy photo, but that is exactly what you are going to do. Get creative! The cheesier the better! Then snap away...Company Christmas card? Handled.
9. Desk Robbery
Steal items from desks and have everyone guess who they belong to. If you want to get really elaborate, ransom notes and clues to find said items can mean an office wide scavenger hunt that will have everyone working together to find their favourite pen or stapler.
10. The Go Game
If you’re really struggling to have fun, give us a call! It’s kinda our thing. We have loads of games, indoor, outdoor, physical or meditative, all just waiting to be played by you.
So get your game on! You will be all the better for it.
