Looking for a new icebreaker game? Or are you more interested in a game which encourages teamwork, while also being fun and entertaining? Well, we can help you out with both!
Inspired by the popular tabletop card game Cards Against Humanity, TeamBonding is happy to present Teams Against Humanity. With this printable card game, hilarity is sure to ensue, and in the spirit of the original game, this workplace version is only more appropriate if you want it to be.
Our game has two versions, one solo player and one for teams.
The first version, the one where individual players compete against each other, is an ice breaker game! This version of Teams Against Humanity is full of get-to-know-you questions, and the better you know your coworkers, the better a chance you have of winning.
At the beginning of each round, the player who’s leading the round draws a question card. The remaining players write down their answers to this question on an answer card, and turn it in. A “best” answer is selected, and the player leading the round must guess who wrote the answer. If they guess correctly, they keep the question card. If they guess incorrectly, the player who wrote the answer wins the round and collects the question card. The player with the most question cards at the end of the game wins!
Version two of this game is the team building version. Players must work together and co-operate in order to win each round. Questions for the team game are less personal, and therefore more open to wild and hilarious answers.
Teams divide into groups of 3 or 4 based on total number of players: a group of 15 divides into 5 teams of 3, etc. Each member of the lead team draws a card, then either covers their eyes or leaves the room. All other players work together to select the question card, and remove the others. Each team fills out 2 answer cards, and turns them in. The lead team must then read the answers, and try to guess which question card remains. If they guess correctly, they keep the card. If not, it goes back into play. The team with the most question cards at the end of the game wins!
Both versions of the game are included in the package!
Our Teams Against Humanity download package includes instructions for both versions of this team building card game, a sheet of blank answer cards (photocopy or print more as needed), 24 solo player game question cards, and 24 team player game question cards.
How to embrace team collaboration? For an organization to run smoothly and meet its goals, it is important to foster a work environment that supports collaboration amongst colleagues. Unfortunately for most organizations, this does not occur naturally, and thus you must make an effort and take steps to help build and sustain a cooperative work environment.
A Company Culture One of the most important aspects of any successful organization is to have a clearly defined company culture. Office culture can influence and be influenced by many things including the type of communication within an organization, the types of events you hold for your employees, and the standards you hold your employees, too.
Team building: It is a very common term that is often discussed in many organizations today as a means of trying to get employees to accomplish common goals. Although the term itself may have developed a more negative meaning over recent years, Forbes Magazine says, “Team building is the most important investment you can make for your people. It builds trust, mitigates conflict, encourages communication, and increases collaboration.” In order for this to happen, you have to be innovative when coming up with team building activities. Try to think past the often used group picnic idea, and implement team building practices that will allow employees and coworkers to use their strengths to bring better, long-term value to your business as a whole.

Giving back to our communities makes you feel good, assists in making you more socially aware and helps you bond with your colleagues as you team up to help those in need. Charity is beneficial for both humanity and business for many reasons. When you participate in Corporate Social Responsibility team building activities, you get the best of both worlds.

People are scared for the futures of their companies, and are cutting corners at every possible turn. No one is very eager to spend money on team building.
