Slack is primarily a team collaboration platform, but there are several games and activities that can be integrated into Slack to add some fun and engagement to your team.
Popular Slack games:
- Trivia: You can set up a trivia game in Slack using a trivia app or by creating your own trivia questions. Members can answer questions in a dedicated channel, and the bot can keep track of scores.
- Emoji Reaction Game: Post a riddle or a question, and participants respond with emoji reactions to convey their answers. It’s a simple and fun way to engage the team.
- Pictionary: Use a drawing app or a tool like Slack’s built-in drawing feature to play Pictionary. Participants take turns drawing a word or phrase, and others guess what it is.
- Code Names: Play the popular board game “Code Names” in Slack by creating a channel for the game. Use emoji reactions or a bot to manage the game board and clues.
- 20 Questions: Choose a person, place, or thing, and have team members take turns asking yes/no questions to guess what it is within 20 questions.
- Scavenger Hunt: Organize a virtual scavenger hunt where participants find and post pictures of specific items within a set time frame. The first person or team to find all items wins.
- Word Association: Start with a random word, and have team members respond with the first word that comes to mind. It can create interesting and often humorous chains of associations.
- Two Truths and a Lie: Share two true statements and one false statement about yourself. Others in the channel try to guess which statement is the lie.
- Guess the Song: Share a few lines of lyrics in a channel, and have participants guess the song title and artist. You can use a dedicated bot for this or manage it manually.
- Werewolf/Mafia: Play text-based versions of social deduction games like Werewolf or Mafia. A bot can help manage roles and facilitate the game.
Be mindful of your team’s preferences and work environment when introducing games. It’s important to keep them light-hearted, inclusive, and non-disruptive to the overall workflow.
