Christmas is just around the corner🎅. Many companies are still spending most of their time working from home due to the pandemic. It has been proven that bringing employees together to celebrate has a positive impact on team morale. While a wine tasting event on Zoom was OK for last year's Christmas partiesit is time for companies to investigate more engaging alternatives in 2021. 

Escape games have been booming even prior to the pandemicIn the last months, we observed a further increase with many virtual escape game solutions being created. At Veertly, we have tested some of these escape game options over the past months to strengthen our team spirit. See below our five favorite online escape games: 

  1. Mibo Island:

Sherlocked and Mibo have jointly created a fun virtual escape game. You can explore different islands 🏝️ with your avatar, collect funny hats and solve challenges together with your team. You must communicate well and coordinate with your teammates to be able to finish the escape game. In September, our colleagues organized a fun team event by embedding Mibo Island into our platform. We had a great time and our team loved it!
