Help Pick A Group Work Appropriate Game
September 2, 2014 7:17 AM Subscribe
I work from home. Most of the people I work with also work from home. We're scattered around the US. Once a year we all (80 people) fly in to HQ for a few days of face to face meetings. My boss wanted to have some kind of game we can all play while we're there. I can not come up with any ideas, and I'm hoping someone can recommend a good game for this.

This game could be phone/app, or computer, but it seems like a physical game, like a board game or something, would be the most fun. It must be asynchronous. That is, we need to be able to play it for a few minutes at a time between meetings, then come back to it later and play for a few minutes. The idea is it will help amuse us during breaks. We'd be able to keep score or have a way to declare a winner at the end of our time in the office. So we'd play some game and do SOMETHING to acquire points, or build something, or solve a mystery, or... well, just about anything. I was thinking puzzles or trivia, or scavenger hunt, but I can't figure out how that would work with a large group over 3 days. We'd have a room available to devote to it if needed, or computers. Most people would have a phone. Ideas?
