Games Ideas for An Office Olympic Themed Incentive

Hi All just thought I would share some different ideas we have collated and used for an Olympic themed incentive in the contact centre.

Opening Ceremony – Best decorated Bank wins – each team picks a country out of the hat to represent and decorates their bank to that theme.

100m RC Race – Using 1 or 2 remote controlled cars race around a predefined course in the office, top 3 fastest times win

Discus Hoopla – Using the hoopla set 3 highest scores win. (in the event of a tie there will be a hoopla off)

Paper Aeroplane Javelin – Each team must create a paper plane made only of paper A3 or smaller. Nominated person stands on the line and furthest planes win

Archery – Throwing paper balls into waste paper baskets at different distances top 3 win

Synchronised office chair swivel – (my favourite) Needs no real introduction just someone/people to judge

RC Long Jump – Furthest jump in a RC car on a home made ramp

Shooting – If you have whiteboards you can use the toy guns that shoot the sticky bullets, these work very well on whiteboards.

Boxing & Volley Ball – You would need a WII or X Box for this.

Table Tennis – You can by a set online which gives you a net, 3 balls and two bats that you can use on a normal office table, got mine for £2.49

Triathlon – A combination of 3 events, starting with the 100m RC race, followed by 10ft Shooting and finished with Bin archery.

Rock, Paper, Scissors judo – explains itself.

Hope these help and i would welcome other suggestions for some fun office safe game ideas.
