Company Christmas Party Season Arrives!

Merry Christmas Friends!

Tis' the season of company Christmas parties.  Over the next three weeks the majority of us will have the opportunity to attend a Christmas party of some kind.  This will be the first year that Trio hosts a Christmas party.  In an attempt to make our party mega "fun", I thought it would be wise for us to research what it takes to host a mega "fun" company Christmas party.

Well after some thorough searching, all of us discovered that "fun" Christmas party ideas are really lacking, but there is a whole whack of tips out there if you want to host an "awkward" Christmas party.  I thought it would be entertaining to share some of these brilliant ideas with you.

Now, I apologize in advance if you have already planned to employ some of these games at your Christmas party.  You never know, the games could be a hit if you have the right group of people.  I have tried to imagine what that group would have to look like in order to pull these games off without it being awkward, and for the life-of-me I am struggling to imagine it!

So over the next few weeks I will be sharing with you, what I think are potentially "awkward" company Christmas party games.

I will also be posting these blogs on the Trio Facebook Page http://facebook.com/triowebdesign .  Feel free to make comments on any one of my postings.  I would especially like to know if you have been involved in one of these potentially awkward company Christmas party games.  How did it turn out? We have a number of Christmas discussions happening on the Facebook Page, so join in and share your stories with us.

Awkward Company Christmas Party Games

When reading the game try and imagine your own company playing this game.  It helps if you can envision yourself playing, your co-workers, and of course don't forget the Boss!  Try not to laugh too loud after reading the game. We don't need your coffee break privileges taken away from you.  One last thing to remember, companies actually play these games!

Game #1: Noah's Ark

Take the group of employees and divide the group evenly into two different teams.  Have each team go to opposite sides of the room. Now the referee (the odd person out) hands each person a card with a picture of an animal on it. Both teams have the same set of animal cards, therefore they all have a mate.  The trick here is that their mate is on the other team and no one knows who their mate actually is. 

After being given a moment of thought, EVERYONE in the room has to act like the assigned animal and walk across the room in search of their mate.  If the animal crawls, flaps, waddles, etc. you must do the same. 

The major rule here is that NO HUMAN language is allowed! You must stay in character until you find your mate.  Once people think they have discovered their mate, they go to the referee.  The game proceeds until everyone has been mated. 

A CBB Insight.  "Just imagine this game for a moment.  You + Animal + Co-worker.  Very Interesting. Very Awkward. Very Funny"
