Work doesn't always have to be about work. One of the best ways to bond with your remote team is to do something fun — no work strings attached. If you're looking for an online party game that is entertaining and relaxing, Offsyte has you covered. Here are some virtual party games that you and your team will love, all from the comfort of your own homes.
Mardi Gras is right around the corner, so why not get started celebrating now? Mardi Gras Gone Wrong is a murder mystery virtual party game stuffed with plenty of laughs. During this event, your team will attempt to figure out who strangled a party guest with a set of beads. You and your team will choose from 20 different characters — with one of you being the killer. The hosts will guide your team through the evidence, help you question the suspects, and ultimately make a final accusation.
During The Great Zoom Challenge Game, you and your colleagues will participate in games based on your feedback to the hosts. They'll select the best games possible and then split you into teams. What makes this online party game interesting and fun is that it makes full use of Zoom. In one challenge, your team will be asked to create a Frankenstein using Zoom. In another, you'll be asked to find an item everyone has, and then pass it across to the team using Zoom. And don't worry about the number of people who join this virtual party game — the hosts can accommodate up to 1,000 people at a time.
Space Defenders is a great online party game for the puzzler inside all of us. During this event, your team will build communication skills by solving complex puzzles and sharing clues. You and your colleagues are part of an elite team called the Space Defenders. An evildoer has stolen your powerful crystals and scattered them across the universe. Without these crystals, your team is weakened. You must crack codes and unlock puzzles to find the crystals before the universe is destroyed. It sounds heavy, but we promise it's tons of fun.
Everyone loves a good magic show, right? With The Illusionist, you and your team can sit back and be wowed by a master magician and his many mind-bending tricks. This virtual party game is great because it comes with a variety of options, from a holiday-themed event to one featuring a "mystery kit" for each team member. The Illusionist combines magic, storytelling, music and comedy into one amazing online party game that will leave your team mystified. In the best way possible, of course.
Combine comedy and competition with Competitive Comedy Mashup. This is an improv-focused virtual game; your team's comedic spirit will definitely come out. During this game, your team will compete in four rounds of improv challenges:
- A Shark Tank-like pitch show
- A trivia game with no wrong answers
- Saving the world… with a stick of butter
- An epic rock, paper, scissors battle
Don't worry if your team doesn't feel up to improv. The host is great at getting the best out of everyone and making sure they all have fun doing it.
