5 Online Trivia Games for the Office
Playing office games is a great and light-hearted way to build meaningful relationships with your team while having fun with each other. And a sure-fire way to increase the fun is to throw a little competition into the mix!
Planning an online trivia game on Zoom may seem like a daunting task at first. However, with handy conference calling features like screen-sharing, private messaging, and breakout rooms, you can spend less time stressing over logistics and more time joining in with your team on the fun.
Note: Whether you were looking for online trivia games for the officeor something closely related like “games to play on zoom” or “zoom scavenger hunt”, this list should have what you’re looking for. We threw in a couple of trivia-esque games for the people that are tired of the standard trivia format.
💡 Virtual Live Trivia by Sporcle
Missing those late nights at your favorite brewery or pub, trying to best the other locals in a friendly game of trivia? Sporcle simulates that for you, through Zoom, by bringing the host and the questions to you and your comfy couch. All you have to do is bring your A-game and a team of family, friends, or coworkers, choose from a list of live-hosted events, and enjoy!
TriviaMaker is a great option for spicing up your virtual meetings because it’s specifically designed for video conferencing. Furthermore, it’s fully customizable, meaning you can change the branding, the music, and explore the different game styles: grid format like Jeopardy!, list format like Family Feud, etc. That being said, this clearly takes a bit of setup so if you’re just wanting a plug-and-play experience, this might not be the best option for you.
🤝 Custom Team Trivia
How could it possibly get any better than a classic game of trivia, you ask? Custom Team Trivia is all about your company and the people that make it great.. ok fine, and the occasional pop culture question for all the Taylor Swift fans out there. But, mostly about your people!
What makes Custom Team Trivia so great is that it’s designed specifically to get uncover shared interests between your team thus building stronger relationships and increasing trust amongst colleagues.
GeoGuessr is one of the Zoom games on our list that doesn’t necessarily fit the standard trivia mold, but is loads of fun nonetheless. It’s especially great for teams that are distributed across the world because it’s all about looking at a map, finding geographical clues, and guessing where you are in the world! It’s got built-in mechanics to compete with friends or coworkers, or you could just share a single screen and have a nice little free-for-all.
🍿 The Great Emoji Movie Challenge
Last but certainly not least, we’re suggesting yet another game you can play on Zoom that doesn’t quite align with the standard trivia format, however, using Zoom’s built-in features you could easily turn it into one. It’s incredibly simple to play: think of a movie title, type out the best string of emojis that describe the title, and have your teams guess what it is!
