Two Quick Notes

Get Reimbursed by Your Employer
Most online games require a per-employee license fee that would cost your team hundreds of dollars. This book is a low one-time purchase that you can use indefinitely with your team members and would cost you less than $2 per employee.
Most employers would accept reimbursing it as a business expense, particularly during stay-at-home advisories.
Here's a sample message you can use with your manager:
"Hi - I found this short guide called "Fun Virtual Team-Building Activities" that we can use with our team to stay engaged over Webex or Zoom. It's a one-time purchase of $X for a team of 20 people, so that's less than $2 per team member. The author is donating 100% of profits to COVID-19 efforts, so it's for a good cause as well. Do you think it would be okay to expense a few copies so we can use one and share the other copies with our department leaders?"
What People Are Saying
Here's what some thought leaders have said about the book.
A Little About Me
My name is Hassan Osman and I'm an author on the side. I'm currently a Director at Cisco Systems (views are my own), and I write short books for busy managers.
Some of my books include Amazon #1 bestsellers such as "Influencing Virtual Teams" and "Don't Reply All."
In early 2020, I decided to write a book about virtual team games. I wanted to help people stay connected over Webex and Zoom during the coronavirus lockdown and to donate the profits to COVID-19 pandemic relief efforts
Note: I donated 100% of the profits from the first 30 days of the book's sales to a COVID-19 relief fund. Going forward, I will continue to donate 10% of the profits to COVID-19 relief efforts, and if/ when those efforts subside, I will donate those profits to any other charity.
I also wanted to share my journey to help inspire others to write their own book (you can read more about my journey by clicking here)

Is the book available in hardcopy?
No, the book is only available as a downloadable PDF for now.
What does "1 copy per 20 team members" mean?
It means that purchasing one copy of the book can be used for teams of up to 20 individuals. So if your team size is 14, then you only need to purchase one copy. If your team size is 27 (or if you're purchasing copies for two separate teams), then kindly purchase two copies.
Can I buy this as a gift?
Yes, you may purchase one or more copies of this book and send the PDF file(s) as a gift.
Why do I need a Google Account?
The book comes with downloadable templates on Google Slides and Google Sheets. You will need a (free) Google Account to access and download them. Those templates are optional and are not needed to play the games, but they will save you a lot of time. They include "How to Play" slides, sample games, and spreadsheets.
