2. Play Hangman
Another fun game which almost all of us have played in school is Hangman. It’s a word guessing game that involves two or more players (or teams). Players need to guess the letters in a word before it's too late. With every right guess, they move an inch closer to the word provided by the opponent team.
3. Play Jeopardy
One of the most popular game shows on television, Jeopardy let’s employees showcase their knowledge. Divide the whiteboard into columns, designate spots for the two categories of vocabulary and point value rows. Divide the employees into two teams, and let the teams select a category and point value. Give the players some clue or definition, and don’t forget to give their answer in the form of a question.
4. Have a drawing race
Players need to race to be the first one to draw a picture of the sentence you write on the whiteboard. It’s a team game where each member gets to draw only one object mentioned in the sentence, and then pass on the marker to the next member on the team.
