The idea behind the team event
A spark of competition brings the team to life! This also applies to the online Christmas party. As a 30 to 60 minute online game, the Reindeer Race is appropriate as an entertaining beginning or as an atmospheric boost in between.
The colleagues come up against each other in teams of 3-5 members. It is your task to train a reindeer in the virtual world, make bets – and sabotage the other teams at the same time.
The whole thing takes place in a 3D world, lovingly decorated with details such as falling snowflakes and fairy lights around the race track.That’s a Christmas party with a difference!
A two minute video explains the rules of the Reindeer Race at the beginning. They are easy. The teams participate in multiple races and each one prepares for the spectacle by: training a reindeer, sabotaging and making bets – and keeping an eye on what the others are doing.
The course of events
The online Reindeer Race consists of six rounds. Each round begins with a short overview of each race course. Then the teams will discuss their strategy in breakout rooms: should we support an untrained reindeer in order to increase our chances of winning? Or should we rather bet on a professional reindeer? What are the other teams going to do? Then all of the teams come together again. The next race round begins.
Online Reindeer Race is a browser based web game. You don’t need to install an app. The exchanges can take place through your normal conference software.
