I love getting to play "Game Show Host"!

Today, I got to host another trivia game time for a group at work. This is the fourth or fifth time I've used Crowdpurr, and I have to say it's easily the best trivia game platform out there for small groups.

Early in the pandemic, I hosted Happy Hour Game Time using games from the Jackbox Party Pack sets. They were always a blast and well-attended.

It's easy to do remote team building games if you keep two things in mind:
  • Pick something where you can share your screen and audio so people know what's going on
  • Pick something that can be played with their phones
Invest a little time to get the right Zoom (or whatever platform) settings and take a few practice runs to make sure everything works. You need to make sure everyone can interact and have fun.

And don't forget a lot of the success will be on how you manage the game. Focus on being a good host and managing the room and the pace of play so everyone can participate and have fun!

Running a D&D Campaign

Reconnected with gaming group from collegiate years. We're six players in three time zones, playing biweekly sessions.

  • Planning three-hour sessions, with built-in breaks and Intro/Gameplay/Outro pacing
  • Taking notes during gameplay
  • Improvising with players while not letting the wheels totally fall off
  • Collaborating with players to build a story
  • Encouraging equal levels of contribution to the world and gameplay
  • Balancing between pre-written content and in-the-moment creativity
  • Keeping players on pace and on track so we're constantly pushing forward
  • Reflecting with players after the session with MVP moments, to highlight the group's success and individual players' contributions
  • Balancing as many unique playstyles and motivations/goals as there are players, including myself
  • Leveraging existing technology (and building my own) to manage aspects of campaign with work-smarter-not-harder ethos
Honestly, running D&D is a multi-hour product management meeting, and I do it for fun. Repeatedly.
