so youve just been hired at Corporation Inc., and you've come in your rumpled suit & tie to the building for your orientation meeting. in the room are a bunch of sleepy-eyed new hires, some pouring themselves coffee, some chewing on some bagels, general morning drill. an overly excited guy at the front of the room says "welcome everybody, i hope youre excited to do business and work at Corporation Inc.! we at Corporation Inc. value trust, teamwork, and communication, so i hope you're ready to do some..."

everybody groans...

"team building exercises!!!!!!"

RULES

1. To signup, introduce yourself with a NAME of your choice (this can be your real name, your username, or some chaotic other...), what your ROLE at the company is going to be, and a FUN FACT about you!

2. There will be 3 EVENTS to the teambuilding exercise championship, each with their own rules. At the end of each event, you will gain some number of Clout Bucks to represent the amount of social clout you have gained among your peers, which may then affect your performance at the office!

3. The person with the most Clout Bucks at the end of the game wins!!

4. Remember, in accordance with company policy, no private communication is allowed.


EVENTS

1. HUMAN KNOT
Synopsis: You're all grabbing hands in a confusing tangle of limbs. The goal is to untangle yourselves.

2. PICTIONARY
Synopsis: Divide into teams among yourselves, choose one person to draw the prompt, and it's up to the rest of the team to guess it!

3. [TO BE ANNOUNCED]

welcome!

IPS the JANITOR
BUMBY the ELECTRIC FIXER
CHAOTIC the PLUMBER
BARTHOLOMEW the EXTERMINATOR
SKYE the ELECTRIC FIXER FIXER


I hope you're all excited and energized because our first activity of the day is HUMAN KNOT!
We will work together to untangle ourselves without letting go of each others hands.
At the end, you will rank everyone besides yourselves from most to least helpful. Whatever metric of help is up to you (how much did they advance the untangling, how good was their attitude, how much did they encourage others, anything else), but you must rank everyone.

Each other person will get 1, 2, 3, or 4 clout bucks based on how much they impressed you during the HUMAN KNOT activity. remember, this will affect your job performance! doing the HUMAN KNOT is the first step in building relationships of trust.

as your first action, you have Two Hands free. use your left and right hands to grab someone else's left or right hand. if your hand has been grabbed it is no longer free and you no longer have to worry about grabbing with it.
