What are the best games for Virtual Events?

Fun quizzes and trivia

Setting up fun quizzes and trivia can brighten up the atmosphere of an event or team meeting. For instance, you could ask attendees about their favorite travel destination or their favorite tv series.

There is a range of apps that can help you with quizzes and trivia. Kahoot is a great option, as it is user-friendly, interactive, and visually enticing. Players gain points with correct answers, and the winners are presented on a final podium.

Scavenger hunt

A scavenger hunt is a game where you have a list of items to find or challenges to fulfill, often competing against other teams and constrained by a time limit. It can be a great team-building activity and serve as a platform to get to know each other better.

In a virtual format, you can set a list of challenges for people to do at home. For instance, you could ask participants to share a selfie with their favorite mug, to resolve a riddle, or to record themselves doing a TikTok dance. Then, you can assign points to each of the items according to their difficulty.

You can use our gamification feature for this.

Virtual escape rooms

An escape room is an adventure game in which a team of players find themselves in a room and must discover hidden clues and solve puzzles to progress and “escape” the room.

Virtual escape rooms follow the same principles without a physical environment, and different teams must solve riddles and puzzles in a fixed amount of time. This shared experience can boost collaboration and team spirit.

 Some of the most popular virtual escape rooms include the Grimm Escape, Hogwarts Digital Escape Room, and Oscar´s Stolen Oscar.

Scattergories

This is a popular multiplayer game in which the players roll dice with letters and fill out a list of items starting with that letter within certain categories.

These categories can be anything, such as colors, actors, cities, movies, etc. Each original answer gets players one point and the player with the most points at the end of an allotted time wins.

In the online version of scattergories, available at Scattegories you can set up your game, choose the topic you´d like, and send a link to all the participants. Since it´s easy to play and attendees can relate to it, the game can get people involved and focused.

Virtual human bingo

In a human bingo, the organizer creates bingo cards listing interesting facts about the participants. These can be personalized things such as “plays the piano” or “has lived in New Zealand”. Alternatively, these items can be more general such as “likes to swim” or “can whistle”.

Then, the organizer shows the bingo sheets and gives attendees time to mingle and find people matching the cards. As customary, the game ends when someone yells bingo (having completed the sheet) or when the allotted time has finished.

This game is great entertainment and allows participants to get to know each other better. A great way to set it up online is using a virtual events platform enabling private 1:1 chats and video conferencing.

Virtual board and card games

eeping in mind the number of attendees or team members involved, you could also consider the online versions of classical board and card games. For instance, games like checkers, crazy eights, and backgammon are available at PlayingCards.

Other classic games that are suited for remote play include Pictionary, where you draw something and other players have to guess what it is, and Mafia (also called Werewolf) in which each player is secretly assigned a role within a team and has to eliminate suspects.
