So, here is the list!
1. Virtual Crib Tour
This has been the best idea we have seen work to learn about each other. A guided tour of your house is similar to MTV cribs. You get to show off your work or cool posters to create a personal connection.
2. Photo Contest
Hosting a photo contest is a fun way to bring people together. Everyone gets involved by taking photos at the event and uploading their entries online. Then, the winners are announced at the end of the party.
3. Online Game Night
Play online games such as Candy Crush Saga, Pictionary, Chess, or Mario Kart. These types of games allow you to connect better because you won’t be distracted by your phone calls and emails. For a productive brain exercise, you can try this customizable jigsaw puzzle.
Of course, the most fun are virtual reality games 🤣
4. Trivia Game Show
Put on a trivia game show where every question has a tie-in with the virtual event.
For example, ask questions about references made during the event or about famous college alumni. Having multiple rounds or different formats makes it exciting.
Plus, it’s a lot of fun to watch others try to figure out the answers before anyone else does.
5. Fashion Show
Create a fashion show that includes the latest trends or make it funny. Get as creative as you would want your guests to be.
Some ideas we have seen work are Dress-like-celebrity, Traditional-cultural-dress, Ugly-Christmas-Sweater
6. Movie Marathon
Instead of watching movies alone, why not invite everyone over virtually and watch together?
Go with the classics and don’t forget you’re 🍿
7. Book Club Discussion Group
Yea we know who reads a book anymore, But it’s why organize a book club discussion group, where each guest brings a book and discusses it while connecting with other attendees.
8. Virtual Watch Party
Whether it be Super Bowl or a Formula 1 race or the Oscars everyone loves a watch party.
With a virtual watch party, you can chat in real time with screen share.
9. Powerpoint party
We know powerpoints are boring. But that’s why convert a boring activity to a fun activity. Don’t believe us?
Pick a topic that everybody gets to learn something. And Give our prizes for the most creative PowerPoint, the funniest powerpoint, or the most boring.
No one can go ever go wrong with Pictionary. Goofy sketches that create memories
Time to doodle Skip OR Sasquatch OR Lollipop and let your team guess.
All you need is an event app that allows you to do it seamlessly and make teams !
