I’m Xi Jinping, president of the Popular Republic of China. Today I woke up with striking news: the world is going to get hit by a terrific asteroid. With my fellow leaders, we need to find a solution altogether.
But we need to enjoy a teambuilding game together first. It’s crucial to ensure our unity.
Otherwise, we will never, ever agree on something until this meteor starts a never-ending winter.
When I played this remote team-building game, each of the players could choose to become one leader, over the 5 offered (Putin, Trump, Jinping, Merkel, Johnson). I decided to be Xi Jinping because, well, I have Asian origins.
UpEvents provided us a .pdf virtual paper with clear instructions. From there, we had to scan our own character, in order to already start the game.
Then, we had a flag for each presidential place. We were welcoming each other for a solemn meeting. Indeed, it was the best disposition to have fun, when a catastrophe was dangerously close.
I had a great delight at welcoming my colleagues in the Forbidden City doing some collective photos and solving riddles.
“To grin 😀” has a negative connotation. However, in my case, it was rather positive. In fact, the content brought me a joyful surprise, which I often express by a grin 😀. Indeed, the tasks were quite surprising. They involved some teamwork through our different screens.
Hey, how would you feel at recreating a Trump’s wall over our webcams (I’m too shy to post a screenshot of the hilarious outcome)?
Or how would you feel a Su Do Ku riddle, where Putin secretly has the missing part of the whole grid?
You got to negotiate with him. Then, find the right word to make him understand that teamwork is necessary. And finally, you need to communicate your situation through the conference software.
It’s not that evident to communicate when both of your countries are used to some indirect commercial war! But in times of crisis, we sometimes (re)learn to appreciate each other in the right way.
It applies to the country’s leader who you pretend to be, but it also applies to the real player, who’s an important part of his company. Although they face tension every day, they still need to maintain a cordial relation. And Project Arrow’s game helps well.
This is team-building at its best.
Usually, for any team-building game, event companies often book an outdoor place to gather all the participants. The clients need to be disconnected from a hard-working reality in their indoor office.
Indoor games were often Plan B that no event company was a hundred percent willing to operate. It’s, even more, the case when the mood undermined by a rain ruining the plan A.
However, games have changed with the striking arrival of COVID-19. Everyone has to work from home, with their family, far away from their every day’s workmates. This is a harsh reality for the events manager. The demands are all canceled one after another (we already knew such crisis before).
One solution rose up: Remote team-building game from home. It needed only a few weeks for these companies to come up with an innovative and working solution.
And we believe in the efficiency of a community: We encourage our partners to develop their own game, to present their creation to everyone.
I have been part of a test of one of these innovative games. And as I described earlier, I loved it.
I saw a bright potential in it.
