What is Coffee Break Contest?

Coffee Break Contest is a team-building product designed to connect distributed teams!

  • You get placed in a new pair every 1-2 weeks
  • Find 15 minutes to hop on a video conference together
  • Have fun and connect while solving a challenge!
  • Enjoy and appreciate the best submissions in our weekly recaps, while also engaging in some light competitive banter!

Why are we trying Coffee Break Contest?

This is obviously said best in your own words, but we can tell you why we think CBC is great for all kinds of teams! Each challenge is designed to be completed right from your computer, from wherever you are, providing:

  • Easy fun that fits into your week at your convenience
  • A chance to connect with coworkers and bridge the gap between folks in different locations or departments
  • Something to laugh and chat about at the end of every week!

What kinds of challenges are there?

A lot! Over the course of our 4 week trial period, you’ll receive at least one photo challenge, a trivia round, and a problem-solving challenge.

  • Photo challenges encourage creativity: “Create costumes over video chat using only desk supplies and take a screenshot of it!
  • Trivia encourages discussion rather than Googling: “What items does NASA say you need to survive a crash landing on the moon?”
  • Problem-solving and puzzle challenges have unique themes, storylines, and hidden clues. You’ll have to wait to find out more than that!

Why will it be fun?

We don’t mean to brag, but these challenges are pretty well-designed! The team at Coffee Break Contest has built pop-up escape rooms, scavenger hunts, and custom trivia for years, and now brings that experience to making a variety of bite-sized challenges to keep you on your toes!

What’s next?

On your designated start date, everyone on your roster receives an email from us that introduces Coffee Break Contest — let them know so they’re not surprised when we pop up in their inbox!

From there you can sit back and watch your team connect and have fun as the games unfold!
