The Best Virtual Team Games Aren’t Just Games
A really good virtual team-building game is engaging, challenging, rewarding, and fun.
First, the game has to be engaging. Most Zoom meetings are boring because it is just a single person talking. If you aren’t careful, your virtual game can have the same challenge. For instance, if you have a single host asking trivia questions to 30 people, the host will do a lot of the talking — not your team. However, the games below will make sure that ALL of your team is participating and laughing through the activity.
The second key to success is for the game to be challenging. This leads to a sense of accomplishment when the game is over. The third key is for the game to be rewarding. There has to be an emotional impact. A good team activity makes the team members happy to be a part of the group. Finally, the event has to be FUN.
Virtual Team Building Activities and Games
Add a fun virtual team building activity or virtual team building game to your next Zoom or Teams meeting. Over the past year, many folks have gotten well… “Zoomed out” or “Over-Zoomed.” Want your team to look forward to your next virtual meeting? Add one of these fun games to the agenda!
I don’t mean adding a pub-style trivia game or an office Olympics. If your activity seems cheesy or corny, it will turn your team off. Also, the secret to a successful virtual team game is to make sure that the entire team is active and participating throughout the entire game. The only way to get your entire team to participate is to make them WANT to participate.
