In times of great stress or adversity, it’s always better to keep busy, to plow your anger and your energy into something positive - Lee Iacocca.

Employees are thus motivated to work this way in the office. So if you think you have the capacity to lead and organize a team game, then here is your chance to come up with some office games for your work mates and you.

Fun Office Games

Dumb Charades

  • To start with, divide your office into two teams by voting two captains. Both teams must have approximately equal number of members.
  • The captain of one team consults with his team and gives an opposition team member a word/phrase/movie/personality/colleague to act out to his own team.
  • Correct guesses are given 5 points. Negative marking for mouthing words and use of any voices!
  • This continues till one team collects 50 points.
  • The losing team treats the other members to a lunch!
  • This kind of activity makes interaction and getting to know one another quite fun and interesting.
Paper Football  
  • The whole office is divided in teams of two. It is a one-on-one game which makes the challenge even more exciting.
  • You need a bench and some crushed paper for this activity.
  • Player 1 makes an “L” shaped goal post with his fingers and Player 2 flicks the crushed ball of paper into the goal and vice versa.
  • The game lasts up to 5min for each member. So the number of goals shot in 5 min, makes the points that you carry.
  • The winner of one team can play the winner of another and this can continue till there is a winner.
  • The other members all pool in for a gift for the winner!
Airplane Race
  • This is one of those games that are just plain crazy fun while you have a good laugh with your colleagues.
  • All you need is one sheet of paper each. The members are asked to make airplanes out of their sheets.
  • Then, 5 at a time, they all stand behind a line and throw their airplanes in the air.
  • The person’s airplane that reaches the farthest wins.
  • This may seem childish at first, but as you go along, you will notice the competitive nature of your colleagues!
Spider Web
  • In this game, sit in a large circle and one member gets to hold a ball of twine.
  • Starting with the person holding the twine, he/she says something embarrassing about themselves.
  • There will be laughter for a while. After this, he nominates the next person to talk.
  • The next person says something embarrassing and unrolls the twine from the initiator’s hands.
  • The game will carry on and you will see that a spider web has been formed between all the members.
  • Stop the game when the ball of twine is over.
  • The moral of this game is: Working together means you’re connected no matter what kind of person you are.
  • This only goes to show that efficiency in work will be shown only if the employees have a stress free working environment!
