When it comes to choosing the perfect office games equipment, what are you looking for?
Back in January, we told you the 6 reasons you should definitely kit out your office so your employees have the chance to play games throughout the day. The positive impact playing games has on your team’s productivity and happiness is huge and so worthwhile - so we hope you took our advice and have decided to introduce some fun and games into your office space soon!
However, once you’ve made this decision you’re still facing another one - which game should you choose? There are so many different routes you could go down when it comes to selecting the perfect thing, and let’s face it, most offices aren’t blessed with enough space for more than one item of gaming fun - narrowing your choice down to one, perfect piece of gaming equipment can be quite a tricky task.
So, we’re here to help. The most important thing to think about when you’re considering which is the best option for your office is this; what exactly are you hoping it will achieve? Do you want this to be a way for your employees to bust stress, or something that new colleagues can bond over, or something different all together? Once you’ve decided on what exactly you want your game to achieve, you can narrow down what you’re looking for. To steer you in the right direction, here are some of the most popular reasons for installing games into offices - and the perfect equipment to accommodate them...
Looking for the perfect games equipment to...bring people together
One of the nicest ways an office game can add to your working atmosphere is by giving people the chance to take a break from their day to chat and share a joke. To make the most of this opportunity, you need a game that will take time to play and that will instill some gentle competition - there’s nothing better than a pool or snooker table!
Looking for the perfect games equipment to...improve people’s skills
Sometimes, playing a game can actually be an amazing way to keep your employee’s brains on track and focused throughout the day. This is especially true if you choose a game that requires precision, skill and concentration. This is where a darts board or table tennis table are excellent places to start.
Looking for the perfect games equipment to...relieve stress
Unfortunately, there will always be moments of office life when the pressure starts to get on top of us. We think it’s a better idea to let employees take their frustration out on some games equipment rather than each other! Table tennis and air hockey are great ideas for this, as they really let players unleash their issues out on the ball or puck - they’ll definitely feel a lot better once they’ve played a few games!
Looking for the perfect games equipment to...create maximum fun
Sometimes, there are no ulterior motives - you just want a game that will give the office the chance for some pure fun! And for this, there is simply nothing more enjoyable than a pinball machine, or a retro games machine! Short bursts of fun combined with nostalgia, these machines are the perfect office game to properly entertain the troops!
