Read about how fun team building games can make corporate events more fun while giving your employees valuable, new perspectives into teamwork.
Retro TV quiz and game shows such as Family Fortunes, Play Your Cards Right and the Generation Game are much loved formats and make excellent team building tools. They work because they are great fun and because everyone, young or old, knows how to play them. And because they all have international equivalents, even employees from overseas will be able to join in.
The great thing about using retro quiz and game shows as part of your team building event is that they can easily be segued into a bigger event, for instance they make great ice breakers, or for at large formal dinners they can be used to entertain between courses, or are great as a refresher to liven up a crowd at a corporate conference.
It doesn’t matter if your team building event is small for just a few people or for hundreds of delegates, quiz and game shows can be tailored to ensure that everyone gets to play their part and feel part of the team.
Questions for the quiz or game show can either be general knowledge or tailored to be specific to your industry or company.
An old stalwart that may have been off the TV screens for a while now but everyone will know how the game works. We add in the catchphrases and cheesy host, and we even have a human conveyer belt.
Team Generation games make a perfect addition to a larger office Christmas party as this works well as a between courses filler or an event on its own.
We’ve bought this classic 80s favourite back and it’s a great addition to any team building event. Complete with spinning wheel, electronic buzzers and teams trying to show off their superior musical knowledge, it is bound to make any event memorable.
Instead of having atwo families compete we have two different work teams, but the premise of the game is still very much the same. The particular game show is very easy to adapt into a version that is company specific and if you and your management team are willing to share a few little known facts about yourselves for questions, then it can be a great ice breaker and really help to bring down any barriers between staff and management.
Using a big screen to show the scenario that need its blank filling in, Team Blankety Blank is a fun and extremely cheesy game that works great as a filler for conferences or as a fun between courses activity at the annual Christmas dinner. It can also be used as an entire activity that lasts about 75 minutes.
This is a great format to show management’s more human side if they are also the subject of the blank scenarios.
With a giant illuminated card wall, this is a fast-paced, fun, interactive game that is a winner for everyone. Great for audience participation for those who aren’t actually part of the teams playing make this is a great game show to have when you have a large corporate event.
