After a long break (such as a vacation or a quarantine), most teams require a tiny bit of oil to get their cogs turning at full capacity. Of course, we are talking about team buildings, the thing every group or team should do, but very few end up doing it often enough, or perhaps don’t even do it at all. We’re going to help you pull it off just right. Here are some of the best team building games in our whole shop!
Although most people choose to leave the best for last, I’m starting with this game because I could talk about it for hours. T.I.M.E. Stories is a cooperative game for the ages that creates terrific team building experiences through a narrative game. Being narrative, you can only play through the experience once, but after that, more than nine extensions await, all with the same amount of mystery juice. If you’re part of a large team, assign smaller groups to try and finish this game and then compare your scores. It’s not only a great way to build up a rapport, it’s a great story.
Next up is an all-time classic that packs an even more powerful punch nowadays, and that is Pandemic. This legendary game of curing disease was spreading viruses before it was cool! These imaginary viruses are much easier to contain, however, as a team of talented C.D.C. officials (the players) is on the task! Boasting a great collective experience and a brutal enemy to face, Pandemic is a game that has captured the hearts of critics and players alike. And we fall in line with those views. It’s an AMAZING game.
