Jon Conelias - Sep 16 2022, 10:10:38 AM

The holiday season we all know and love is quickly approaching! This means it’s time to start brainstorming new and innovative ways you can keep your team engaged this year. At Elevent, we always think there’s a reason to celebrate. Celebrations are fun and exciting. They invite your team to engage and connect with their coworkers during the holiday season. Planning virtual holiday games for large groups will help foster connections between coworkers and keep everyone in the festive spirit.

That’s why we wanted to share with you some of our favorite virtual holiday games online that you can easily plan for your team.

Here are our favorite virtual holiday games for work:
Winter Holiday TV Game Show

Looking for a high-energy host to set the mood and get your team excited for some friendly competition? We have you covered. With our Winter Holiday TV Game Show, your team will have a fun-filled 60-minute event full of twists and turns. They'll play Survey Says, Words of Fortune, and Jeo-Party. If they want to take home the win, they'll need to learn to work together as a team and accumulate the most points out of the three rounds.

Holiday Bingo

Bingo is a fun, easy-to-plan experience that will keep your team entertained this holiday season. We recommend adding a holiday flair to your traditional bingo by creating cards with a holiday theme.

If you don't have the time to create your own bingo cards or to plan an experience, consider booking our Winter

Holiday Scene & Song Bingo.

This is a winter-themed bingo experience with 4-5 scintillating rounds of bingo. The best part is that we handle all the planning for you.

Holiday Fun & Games

This experience creates a social atmosphere that invites participation and competition. The host will lead your team through a series of games that focus on Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, New Year, and the winter season in general. Your team will play games like picture Clue Trivia, Doodling Deception, and Family Feud. Throughout the experience, they'll have opportunities to socialize and bond as a team.

Holiday Scavenger Hunt

A festive scavenger hunt is the perfect way to get everyone in the holiday spirit! You can create a scavenger hunt list that inspires your team to find festive items around their house.

All you need to do is put together a list of items your team needs to find, such as decorations, scented candles, or a wreath. Set up a zoom call, set a clock, and have everyone try to find as many items on the list they can find before the time runs out!

Holiday Happy Hour

Don’t think your team will enjoy holiday games? Try a holiday-inspired happy hour instead. Our Lucid Winery happy hour invites your team to try five delicious natural and organic wines. Together, they’ll explore different pairings, expand their taste palette, and find a new appreciation for wine. You can consider adding some holiday icebreakers or asking your team to come dressed in an ugly holiday sweater.

Never Have I Ever

Need a fun and easy holiday ice breaker for your next all-hands meetings? Try Never Have I Ever. Instead of your team going over generic statements, encourage them to try to add a festive spin to their never have I ever statement. Here are a few to help you get started:

●      Never have I ever had a white Christmas

●      Never have I ever lied about receiving a gift I didn’t like

●      Never have I ever left cookies out for Santa

●      Never have I ever taken a vacation during a major holiday

●      Never have I ever forgotten to give my significant other a present

Project Sleigh

Our holiday-themed escape game is full of twists, turns, and excitement. Project Sleigh invites your team on a hilarious and festive mission. Together, they'll need to work as a team to solve puzzles and find clues. We'll warn you: There will be a ton of laughter and good times! Project Sleigh can accommodate up to 250 individuals and is 90 minutes long.

Gift Exchange

Who doesn't love an old fashion gift exchange? Gift exchanges are a great way to bring your team together and help them feel more connected with their coworkers. You can use a random name generator to help pair everyone up or go the secret Santa or white elephant route. The choice is yours! If you have a fully remote team, you can ask everyone to mail their gift to their coworker, and then your team can meet on Zoom to open your gifts.

Charades: Christmas Movie Edition

Chances are, your team has seen more than a few Christmas movies in their lifetime! Capitalize on this by planning a Christmas movie charades competition. This is a fun virtual holiday game that everyone can enjoy from the comfort of their home.

All you need to do is split your team into groups. One team member at a time will act out the prompts. The other players have two minutes to guess the film title. You can use a random Christmas movie generator online to help pick prompts.
