The idea behind the online quiz
Finally celebrating together again! For teams in home office, it is not that easy to spontaneously chat, laugh, get to know each other and feel as one. For this reason: just invite them to an after work party again. This also works as a remote team event.
The online quiz after work party begins with a quick ice-breaker round in the virtual lobby. The colleagues will receive a link to it in advance. After that, the group will be split up into at least two teams – and let’s go!
All of the teams puzzle simultaneously over the same quiz tasks. A countdown begins. Points are received – of course – when the tasks are solved correctly before the time is up. In competition with the other teams, the desire to win and a good mood grows with every round.
Why “quiz tasks” and not “quiz questions”?
Because unlike a classic online quiz, with this remote team event there are not only guessing games, but a total of four mini games. You can choose these from multiple suggestions in the preparation, including:
- Monday painters/pictionary
- Who said that?
- Fun fact matching
- The quickest buzzer
- Quiz variations from classics, to emoji puzzles and to guessing celebrities with warped faces.
Colleagues take part in exchanges
Maybe you know the classic online quiz games from the Norwegian learning platform Kahoot! It is known for the fact that users can easily create interactive elements such as surveys and online quizzes. These are individually filled in by the participants on their screens.
The most significant difference at our remote team event after work online party is that real interaction arises: the teams find themselves in a video chat, communicate with each other in order to get to the correct answer – and for each team, a colleague takes “the lead” and presses the buzzer. This task changes each round for others to have a turn.
The finishing photo
At the end of the remote team event, all of the teams come together once more in the virtual lobby. This is where the winners are celebrated and there will be a finishing photo in the “photo booth,” where everybody can give each other nicknames, hats, moustaches and other attributes.
The preparation for the remote team event
The participation in the after work online party is conceivably simple: the colleagues receive a link sent to them, click on it – and find themselves in a virtual lobby. There are no software installations necessary! All you need is a webcam, headphones and a stable wifi connection.
Frequently asked Questions
Your individual team event
The after work party online consists of four mini games. This mix has proven itself in our 18 years of team building experience.

Is the online quiz appropriate for my team?
Our after work online party is fundamentally geared towards everyone. But especially towards teams who work together over a distance, for example, from home office. Your team is quickly made to laugh and talk. Like the name already suggests: it is appropriate to conclude a joint working day in order to welcome the end of a day’s work.
Do you have concerns that a virtual after work party could be more awkward that funny? No worries! We have a team of experienced presenters that will lead you through sixty minutes of fun. Your presenter will explain the rules and lead the teams through the remote team event – but above all make sure there are good exchanges and entertainment!
A few examples
At Monday painters, a colleague draws a concept which only he knows – the others have to guess it. Which team guesses the most points in the given time? Pictionary is a variant in which all players can draw at the same time. We will happily send you the “artwork” that is produced.
At “who said that,” the players have to match the statements to the correct colleague, who answered this question in advance: whose favourite colour is ochre? Who has been learning Korean for three years? Here, you discover new and sometimes interesting fun facts about your colleagues, who in normal every day working hours go unnoticed. Those who know the others well get the points!
In the game “the quickst buzzer,” speed is needed. With the “quiz variations,” diversity comes into the game through different question types. The remote team event is normally introduced with a round of trivia, where the teams have to work together and test their knowledge on Christmas films, songs and traditions.
