5 Games To Play With Your Co-Workers on National Fun At Work Day
Who doesn't love to have fun? Lucky for us here at Cat Country, work is ALWAYS fun! They always say do what you love, right? So why not love your work day and your co-workers more by having some friendly camaraderie in the office on National Fun At Work Day!
Here are 5 quick game ideas to play with your Co-workers today:
1. Binder Clip Tag
Objective: To pin a single binder clip on a coworker without the coworker in question noticing. If you succeed, your unsuspecting victim is left to find out they have been clipped the next time they wipe their potato chip hands on their pants...or in some other fashion. Once the victim has found out, they are then tasked with passing the binder clip on to another coworker with the same sneaky tactic. If you want to make it interesting, make a bet! Whoever leaves with the binder clip on them at the end of the day has to buy the next round of drinks.
Strategy: Go for the worker with baggy clothing
2. The Ninja Game
Common... we've all attempted the disappearing act.
Objective: to vanish at unexpected moments like a ninja — the more unexpected, the better. For example, as you're walking down the hall with a co-worker who's going off about how someone left the toilet seat up in the bathroom, you slip silently into the elevator as the door slides shut. If your coworker does a double take, you win.
Strategy: Make sure you're walking on the side of you're escape route...and have someone distantly walking behind you to check for your victims double take.
3. Secret Mission of the Day
Objective: assign secret missions to your coworkers that they must accomplish over the course of the day. Write an anonymous note to your coworkers and tell them that they have until the end of the day to complete their task.
For example: Steal something off of the bosses desk and play dumb all day when he/she asks around for it
Strategy: Make the tasks fair but funny... if it puts their job in jeopardy they obviously won't do it! Also have a video camera handy.
4. Photo Hunt
Ok, this one is a little tricky but FUN.
Objective: take a picture of your unsuspecting assigned target's face to eliminate them from the game. SO--you all draw out of a hat someone's name in the office; that person then becomes your target. You actively pursue your target to try and get a picture of their face (from behind photos don't count). Once you capture you're photo, your target is eliminated, they are then forced to hand THEIR target over to you to complete the mission. Last person standing is the winner.
Strategy: Sneak up behind your target and call their name casually, it'll be their initial reaction to turn around
5. Office Treasure Hunt
Objective: Exactly what it sounds like...a scavenger hunt, just with happy hour incentives! The more extreme places the better. Have a committee set to conduct the scavenger hunt and deliver clues (if you're a boss, this would be a good team building activity to entice your workers to work together)
Strategy: Location, Location, Location
