Ideas for fun Virtual Zoom activities for <10 ppl?

I have the lucky job of coordinating fun, 30min-hour long sessions with some of my teammates a few times a month for us to unwind, play a game and/or really just hang out. I've played a few games like scribbl or psych with them, but could use some more ideas. What do you all do with groups under 10 ppl over zoom?

Wish I could upvote this more than once.. The last thing I want to do is get on another zoom call after a long day for "coordinated fun".Β

We did one where we got sent a shit ton of super craft beer and the owner came on and told us about them all and what the inspirations were. By the end I had probably 10 beers all 8% and above, and had to take a sick day the next day lol.

10/10 recommend something like that if you have to join the session, if not, follow Coupon's advice.

movie trivia is always good, just play like 3 seconds of an iconic scene of a movie everyone knows and see who gets it!

Great topic! Zoom gets tiring but from time to time, bringing folks together for a guided meditation is a nice way to finish the day/week.

We did virtual wine tasting and it was much better than I expected. Similar to the craft beer tasting someone mentioned, the winery sent out 5 tastings to everyone, the winemaker came on and talked us through each one. It was great, got to drink good wine the entire time and didn't have to interact or say a word ifΒ  I didn't want to.Β

Play a board game or something virtually. Clue was always my favorite back in the day or jeopardy.

Wine/beer/cocktail tastings, ship them their gear and maybe a food pairing.

We've been using this platform https://gatheround.com/ - forces people that don't turn on their cameras to have to. There's some breakout sessions and things to get to know your colleagues better.Β

Add some booze into the mix and it can be super fun. It does take a while for people to get the gist of it, but it's so worth it for the team-building. Does require some degree of your team being 'cool' and counting on people to not rat on others to HR because it can get out of hand.
