Virtual Setup

Fictionary is a very simple game that requires very few physical materials. Words and definitions can be pulled from any agreed upon online source.

Variations

People, Places, and Things: Instead of selecting words from a dictionary, widen the base of words to people (one phrase about who they are), places (one phrase about where it is), and things (one phrase explaining what it is). The prompt should specify definition format so that entries are similar in nature.

Pulse Check

Q. Does everyone seem open to keep playing? Are the disengaged able to be more engaged?

Q. Are people having fun — smiling, laughing, in deep thought?

Q. Do you hear productive strategizing about how to improve round-to-round?

How

Position the reflection around pathways and resources for accomplishing goals and future growth:

  • How did the team organize itself around the rules and objectives?

  • Did conflict or miscommunication affect the game? How might you address that for next time?

  • Would more time, people, or resources have shifted the team's approach? How so?

Think

Position the reflection around rational planning and communication methods:


  • Did this game illuminate any patterns in how you give and receive information?

  • How might it be helpful to know the preferences and tendencies of your colleagues?

  • Could your team benefit from additional or more diverse perspectives?
