Event Overview

Cornhole, ping-pong, cards, etc.  Think of a great game that people want to compete in and watch and you have a fun event for everyone in your office to take part in.  Make it a larger event by including food/drinks for people watching to purchase.

This is an in-person event for an office or department.  Could be turned into a multi-location event by having offices within a department crown a winner who then face-off against each other.
