another agile game virtual/remote team style – circle connections

July 21st, 2018 by Jeanne Boyarsky

Last year, I wrote about Virtual/remote friendly agile games. Yesterday at the NYC Scrum user group, we played an agile game about circle connections. The game was:

  1. Stand in a circle with the people at your table.
  2. Everyone picks two people (but don’t say who they are)
  3. Keep moving until everyone is equidistant from their two partners.

The idea is to show how chaos lessens and equilibrium is achieved. Ok.  Physical movement. Can we make that virtual? Actually yes!

Using a tool like togetherjs’s drawing tool, you can see everyone’s cursor. So all team members can move around the cursor to meet the equidistant requirement.

Not just any collaborative editing tool will do. It needs to be one like the drawing tool which displays all the mouse cursors!

We also played a game where we built towers with newspaper. That one I don’t think I can make remote team friendly!
