It has been wonderful to hear of all the team virtual activities that have been taking place over the past couple of weeks. Please keep sharing your suggestions, pictures and any remote events to Această adresă de email este protejată contra spambots. Trebuie să activați JavaScript pentru a o vedea.

Here are a couple more ideas ?


Discovery Club

With movies, concerts, bar trivia night and other live events cancelled due to the coronavirus crisis, more and more people seem to be turning to literature to pass the time. 

Set up a discovery club in which each week someone is nominated to pick an article, book or theme for everyone in the group to research on. During the virtual meetings you will all take it in turns to discuss the chosen topic, this is a great way to expand knowledge and even team development. 


One minute you're a Villager, defending your theoretical home with every fiber of your being. The next, you're a Werewolf, framing your colleagues/friends and accusing them of wanting to destroy your village, when really it's you who's been infiltrating it all along. Werewolf is great for remote teams because it fuels a lot of discussion. Your team will love it!

Icebreaker questions 

Icebreaker questions are simple prompts that allow you to get to know your peers better. For example, you can start a remote meeting by having each attendee share their name, role and what they like to eat for breakfast. Icebreakers are a simple and effective way to build relationships with remote teams, and to increase the person connections between your people.

Icebreakers are easy to integrate as virtual happy hour activities or alongside other virtual coffee break ideas.

Donut Calls

Even at a remote company, each member of your team can truly benefit from getting to know their co-workers. But since there aren’t opportunities for your team to randomly chit-chat at the water cooler, you have to be a little more deliberate in creating these virtual team building opportunities and virtual coffee break ideas instead.

That’s where Donut comes in!

Donut is a Slack extension that, once a week, automatically pairs everyone in your company up for a non-work-related 1-on-1 call. These are fun calls that give an opportunity for remote employees to get to know people they normally wouldn’t be working with on a daily basis. Generally these calls run anywhere from 15-30 minutes, and lots of fun is had.

Heads Up!

Heads up is a classic word game where players have to describe the word on the screen to the person holding the screen to their head. You can choose from a range of categories and play with as many people as you want. Why not even get the kids involved.


Free, fun and fast to set up, Houseparty is a game available on IOS, Android, Chrome and Mac.

Coined ‘Facetime plus games’, the software is a video call software and quizmaster rolled into one. 

Play Heads Up (like Celeb in the Bag), Pictionary and Quick Draw.
