Frequently Asked Questions

How do you pick a good team name?

Choosing an awesome team name from so many great ideas can be tough. To make the right decision and choose a name your teammates will be happy with, here are some suggestions that’ll make the process easier.

1) Stick to simple team names

This is pretty much self-explanatory. The simpler a team name is, the easier it’ll be to pronounce and memorize it, so keep things short and sweet.

2) Be creative

That said, keeping things simple doesn’t mean you shouldn’t get creative. Go for something that will stick in people’s minds long after they hear the name, and if it brings a smile to their faces, it’s a plus.

3) Think about the team’s identity

A team’s name conveys a team’s identity, so it’s useful for you and your group to decide what your team is all about. What kind of impression are you interested in leaving? What does the team name mean to you? What are you trying to achieve with it?

For instance, if you’re trying to appear funny, go with options such as We Have 99 Problems but Winning Office Games Ain’t One, Couch Potatoes, The Ones Who Can’t Be Named, or A Team Has No Name. Or if you’re movie enthusiasts, movie-themed team names will perfectly convey that. If you want a random team name, go with a category that speaks to you at that given moment.

4) Ensure the team trivia name corresponds to the office game you’re playing

For instance, if you’re playing a trivia game with a focus on food and drinks, opt for some of the team names we’ve outlined in the Food-Inspired Team Names section.

If you’re hosting sports teams-based office game, check out some of the sports-inspired team names we’ve suggested.

5) Consult your group

Before making any decisions, consult your team members and see how they feel about certain suggestions. What type of team names are they fond of? What team names do they generally dislike?

It’s best to pick a few and then vote for the one everyone seems to approve of the most.

Finally, keep track of all the team names you’ve used in the office so far so you can choose a different one each time you play games in the office.

How do you organize your next office game?

There are no exact rules you should follow when it comes to organizing your next office game; it all depends on how you envision the event.

With that said, there are always some suggestions and instructions you can keep in mind which can help you organize your office games with greater ease. Below, we discuss them.

1) Schedule a time and date

You can’t plan your office game until you schedule it and everyone (or at least the majority of the group in the office) has confirmed their attendance. The best way to find a time slot that works for everyone is by asking your employees what works for them. If you want to do things much quicker, send an online survey and have everyone pick the time they’re available.

2) Pick the office game

After scheduling the office game, it’s time to pick the actual game.

What is it that you see yourself doing with your employees? Is it a murder mystery party? Perhaps an escape room? Maybe you haven’t hosted a Scavenger Hunt for some time? How about a casino night or a team bingo event?

Consult your employees and see which ideas they resonate with the most. Keep the number of attendees in mind because some games are more suitable for larger, while others for smaller groups. For instance, if you’re hosting an office game for many employees, organizing a Scavenger Hunt might get a bit chaotic. However, it may be perfect to consider an escape room game or a murder mystery party with a lot of characters.

3) Plan the office game logistics

The office game logistics bit refers to several things.

First of all, you need to choose a host. It can be you or someone from the team, and if you have the budget for it, you might also consider employing a professional host.

Next, depending on the office game you’ve chosen, you need to make a detailed plan and decide on the rules. Is it a straightforward game, or is it a game that requires more detailed planning? For instance, if you’re hosting a trivia office game, how many groups would you have? How many points do teams get for providing the right answer? When they give a false answer, however, do they lose some points? And who would be keeping the score?

Next, will you be giving some awards to the winning team(s)? Consider things such as Amazon gift cards, goody bags, random vouchers, or perhaps even a day off.

Lastly, pick a specific venue within the office building that’s the most suitable for the office game you’ll be playing.

4) Ask for help

You don’t have to do and plan everything on your own.

Whenever you come across an obstacle you can’t quite manage to solve on your own, ask for assistance. For instance, if you struggle with a technology-related issue, go to your IT team. If you can’t seem to answer employees’ questions regarding the upcoming office party event, have your HR team do it.

5) Enjoy

Have fun.

Office games are meant to be enjoyed, not just by your employees, but by you as well. The organization and the planning bit shouldn’t get in the way of you enjoying the game.

6) Reflect upon the office game

Once you’re done with the office game event, run a brief survey in the office to see how everyone feels about the office game and what can be improved on for next such events.

Here are some ideas about what you can include in the survey:

  1. On a scale of 1-10 (1 being the lowest and 10 the highest), how would you assess the office game?
  2. On a scale of 1-10 (1 being the lowest and 10 the highest), how happy were you with the game host?
  3. On a scale of 1-10 (1 being the lowest and 10 the highest), how much did you resonate with the chosen game?
  4. On a scale of 1-10 (1 being the lowest and 10 the highest), how much did you resonate with your team?
  5. How likely are you to attend other such office game events in the future? (1) Not likely; (2) Somewhat likely; (3) Very likely;
  6. How likely are you to recommend such office game gatherings to colleagues who couldn’t attend this time? (1) Not likely; (2) Somewhat likely; (3) Very likely;
  7. How clear were the game instructions you and your team received?
  8. Was there anything that surprised you? If yes, what was it?
  9. What’s something that you’d like to see during the next office game events?
  10. Do you have other suggestions about games we could organize in the office?

That said, it’s not just your employees who should reflect on the office game. You should also contemplate your feelings about the office event.

Consider questions such as:

  • Am I happy with how the office game unfolded?
  • Is there anything that really surprised me?
  • What could I have done differently?
  • What should I change for the next office game?
  • Were there any latecomers? Did that impact the game in any negative way?
  • Was there anything I forgot to do? If yes, what was it?
  • Should I ask for more help the next time?

Keep in mind that engaging in such reflection should be done the day after the office game event. You’d like to be able to recall details and contemplate your emotions while they’re still fresh. The same applies to your employees’ feedback.

Finally, don’t forget to have every team pick their team name before you start playing!

Why should you run games in the office?

Office games come with a plethora of benefits, and below we discuss the most important ones.

1) Helping employees unwind

Office games help employees relax after a hard day at work. This is when they can connect with their colleagues and have fun while still being in an office setting, and experience the space in a totally different way. Office games are a perfect reward after a challenging meeting or a demanding product launch, and you can make them as short or as long as you and your team want.

2) Using them for ice breaker purposes

Introducing icebreaker games in the office is great for a wide range of business contexts, especially for team-building purposes. Namely, you could have new interns, new employees, or employees who have been with you for some time but don’t know everyone in the company, and such games are the perfect opportunity for them to socialize and connect.

Moreover, icebreakers can be a great boost before an upcoming meeting, tough week ahead, busy launches, and so on. Answering funny questions is the perfect distresser that also affects employee motivation and engagement in a positive way.

3) Paving the way for friendly competition

It goes without saying that office games create many opportunities for friendly competition. This not only helps everyone break away from the routine they’re so used to, but keeps your employees motivated to be the best and outperform long after the actual game is over.

4) Improving interpersonal relationships

Office games help boost the interaction levels in the office more than you can imagine. They enable colleagues to catch up with peers, share thoughts, opinions, and ideas, and listen to what others have to say.

And the best part?

None of this has to be forced - it happens spontaneously. After all, playing office games involves collaboration and communication as your employees are working toward a common goal - to win the game.

Today they’re winning an office game, tomorrow they’ll be winning in your industry and securing sales. That’s how it goes.

5) Boosting employees’ creativity

And this starts way before the actual office game that takes place - just think about the process of picking new team names.

6) Helping employees notice leadership potential among employees

Office games are a great way for employers such as yourself to spot those employees who truly stand out from the crowd with their ideas, resourcefulness, and more importantly, their leadership potential.

These are the people who always have a plan B, have no trouble whatsoever communicating their ideas to the rest of the group, come up with playful solutions, and delegate tasks within their group in a successful manner.

7) Allowing employees to have fun

Office games are enjoyable and funny. There’s something special about engaging in games with peers you’re used to working with all the time.

Coming up with answers, providing solutions, trying to keep up with the score, competing with other teams, all while having fun - few events can live up to the excitement that comes with office games.

Final Words

To wrap up, choosing awesome team names for your next office game can be a fun way to connect with your people in the office, get your creative juices flowing, and enjoy the game before it actually starts.

The list of badass team names we provided you with may not be exhaustive, however, it’s more than enough to get you started. And while coming up with badass team names doesn’t guarantee winning the office game, it certainly gives you a head start.
