18 Games To Play On Zoom With Coworkers
While Zoom fatigue is real, there are some fun games you can play on Zoom to keep things interesting.
1. Online Pictionary:
This is a classic game that you can play with your team. With more than four people, it might get a little hectic.
You’ll need two teams of at least two people each and one person to act as the “judge.”
The judge will choose a word or phrase and give the teams one minute to draw a picture representing that word.
The first team to guess correctly gets the point. Likewise, the team with the most points at the end of the game wins.
2. 20 Questions:
This is another classic game to play with any number of people.
One person thinks of an object, person, or place and the others take turns asking 20 questions to figure out what it is.
If someone guesses correctly, they get to be the next person to think of an object, person, or place.
In this way, the game can go on for quite a while. It is fun to pass the time and get to know your coworkers better.
3. Word Ladder:
This is an excellent game for people who like word puzzles.
One person thinks of a five-letter word. The following person has to think of a five-letter word that starts with the last letter of the previous word.
For example, if the first person says “might,” the next person could say “time.”
This continues until someone gets stumped and can’t think of a word.
The goal is to see how long you can keep the chain going. This is a great way to flex your mental muscles and have fun with your coworkers.
4. Scavenger Hunt:
You can play this game with a large group of people. You’ll need to divide into teams of two or more.
Then come up with a list of items that your team has to find. The first team to see all the items on the list wins.
This is a great way to get people up and moving around. It’s also a lot of fun to see what your coworkers come up with.
5. Would You Rather?:
This is such a fun game to play with your colleagues. You can ask all sorts of questions, ranging from the serious to the silly.
Would you rather have superhuman strength or the ability to fly?
Would you rather be able to read people’s thoughts or control their actions?
The possibilities are endless. This is a great way to break the ice and know your coworkers better.
6. Two Truths and a Lie:
Here is a classic icebreaker game. You can play it with much fun with others.
Each person takes a turn telling three things about themselves.
Two things must be true, and one must be a lie.
The others have to try to guess which is the lie.
This is a great way to learn some interesting facts about your coworkers and get to know them better.
This is a fun game to play with a group of people who are willing to embarrass themselves a little bit.
One person starts singing a song, and the others have to sing the following line.
You can keep going until everyone has had a turn or until someone forgets the words.
This is a great way to let loose and have fun with your coworkers.
Have you ever played the game Hangman? It’s a lot of fun, and you can play it with a team.
One person thinks of a word, and the others take turns guessing letters.
If they guess correctly, they get one step closer to solving the puzzle. If they guess wrong, they get one step closer to being hanged.
This is a great way to pass the time and have fun with your coworkers.
9. Name That Tune:
This is a fun game to play with a group of people who love music. One person hums a song, and the others have to guess it.
If someone guesses correctly, they get to hum the next song.
This is a great way to test your musical knowledge. In this way, the game can go on for quite a while.
10. I Spy:
In this observation game, one person chooses an object, and the others have to guess.
The person who guesses correctly gets to choose the next object.
One person starts by saying, “I spy with my little eye something that is (color).” Then everyone else takes turns guessing what the object is.
This is a great way to test your powers of observation and sharpen your observation skills. It’s also a lot of fun to see what your coworkers can come up with.
11. Bet On The Crowd:
This fun game is similar to a trivia game. One person asks a question, and the others have to bet on which answer they think is correct.
The person who guesses correctly gets the point. The first person to reach 10 points wins the game.
You can bet on anything from pop culture to current events in this game. This is a great way to test your knowledge and challenge your coworkers.
12. Murder Mysteries:
This is a fun game to play with a group of people who are willing to get into character.
One person starts by telling a story about a murder that has been committed.
The others have to try to figure out who did it. For instance:
“I was walking through the park when I saw a body lying on the ground. There was a knife sticking out of the person’s back.
I looked around and saw a man running away. I chased after him, but he got away.”
In this game, everyone has to use their detective skills to figure out who the murderer is.
This is a great way to test your powers of deduction.
This is a fun game to play with a group of people who are willing to be a little silly.
In this game, one person gives a clue to the others about a word.
However, certain words are taboo and cannot be used as part of the clue.
For instance, if the word is “cat,” the person giving a clue might say “a four-legged animal that meows.”
If the person giving a clue uses one of the taboo words, they are out of the game.
14. Office Bingo:
Bingo is one of the most classic games there is. And you can play it in the office!
You can personalize the Bingo cards with office-themed words or phrases to make things more interesting.
In this version, each person has a Bingo card with different tasks that need to be completed.
For instance, one space might say “make a coffee run,” and another might say “eat lunch at your desk.”
The first person to complete all of the cards’ tasks wins the game.
15. The Price Is Right:
Price is right has been the best game show for years, and you can play it at work!
You can use actual items from around the office or make up fake products.
Then, one person is the “contestant” and has to guess the item’s price.
The person closest to the actual price without going over wins the game.
This is a great way to test your knowledge of office supplies (or your ability to make good guesses).
16. Musical Chair:
This is a spin-off of the classic game of Musical Chairs. You don’t need actual chairs since you are playing them on Zoom.
Instead, you can use any object that will make a noise when you click on it.
For instance, you can use mugs, pens, or even your computer mouse.
To start the game, everyone sits in a circle (or wherever they are comfortable).
Then, one person starts playing music (it can be from a phone, laptop, or even a TV).
When the music stops, everyone has to grab an object and make a noise.
The person who doesn’t get an object is out of the game. The last person remaining in the game wins.
This is a fun game to play if you are looking for something more challenging.
In this game, one person gives the others a clue about a location. The others have to try to guess where the location is. For instance, the clue might be “a country in Europe.”
If someone guesses correctly, they get the point. The first person to reach 10 points wins the game.
Scattegories is a classic game that is perfect for playing on Zoom.
You will need a list of categories (you can find these online or make your own).
Then, one person starts the timer (it should be about 2 minutes).
Everyone has to think of an answer for each category that starts with the same letter.
For instance, if the category is “fruit” and the letter is “A,” someone might say “apple.”
If two people have the same answer, they both get the point. The person with the most points at the end of the game wins.
There you have it! Eighteen fun games to play on Zoom with your coworkers.
So next time you’re looking for a way to break the ice or kill some time, give one of these games a try. Your coworkers will thank you for it.
