    A new policy has been put in place; every day(except Friday, that's beer day) one person has to do something at 3:00pm to wake the office up. The rules are it has to be under 10 minutes and under $10. Tuesday we had a giant whoopee pie and had to name childhood books, Wednesday we have to draw a random person from the office(very funny) and today..well, I will tell you in five minutes.

    But, my turn is Monday and I need some good ideas. Anyone have something that is appropriate for the office and fits the criteria mentioned above?

    I take it from this you work in local government.

    At 3:00 on a Friday I don't need waking up. I am getting ready to go home. How about Jenga with the beer cans you empty on Friday. Or photocopying your genitals and faxing them to your creditors...always good for a laugh. Maybe stock car racing with the office chairs or paint balling with condoms filled with toner?

    Bring in a giant beach ball. But you may end up breaking something.

    Well, today we had nips and we had those with espresso. The game was we had 10 iconic characters we had to identify..I missed two. :-(

    I was thinking of balloons and darts...that's always fun.

    Nerf guns. So much fun in an office environment. I also second the beach ball idea, as we have 3 or so floating around where I work not only for fun but to get peoples' attention when on the phone! :)

    Yeah, we already have beach balls all around. I need an easy, quick yet fun game. Nerf would be cool but what game can I play with those?

    Play pin the tail on the donkey. You could always add your boss's picture for the face. :)

    One Point Dares.

    1. Run a lap around the office at top speed.
    2. Groan out loud in the bathroom cubicle.
    3. Ignore the first 5 people who say “good morning” to you.
    4. Phone someone in the office you barely know, leave your name and say “Just called to say I can’t talk right now. Bye.”
    5. To signal the end of a conversation, clamp your hands over your ears and grimace.
    6. Leave your zipper open for an hour. If anyone points it out, tell them you prefer it that way.
    7. Walk sideways to the copier.
    8. While riding in the elevator, gasp dramatically every time the door opens.

    Two Point Dares.

    1. Page yourself over the intercom
    2. Kneel in front of the water cooler and drink directly from the nozzle.
    3. Shout random number while someone is counting.

    Five Point Dares

    1. At the end of a meeting, suggest it would be nice to conclude it with the singing of the National Anthem.
    2. Walk into someone’s office and switch the lights on and off.
    3. Address everyone as Bob.
    4. Announce in a meeting that you really have to do a number 2.
    5. While a co-worker is out, move their chair to the elevator.
    6. Carry your keyboard over to a colleague and ask them if they want to trade.
    7. Repeat the following 10 times to a person, “Do you hear that? What? Never mind, it’s gone now.”
    8. Find the vacuum and start cleaning your cubicle.
    9. Hang a two foot long piece of toilet paper from the back of your pants and act genuinely surprised when someone points it out.

    I'm thinking a rock, paper scissors tournament would be pretty bad ass. :)

    Sing the song that gets on everybody's nerves.

    "I know a song that gets on everybody's nerves, everybody's nerves, everybody's nerves- I know a song that gets on everybody's nerves; and this is how it goes..."

    Two words: Sumo costumes!


    Ok, I guess that'd be more than $10, but it would also be awesome :cool:

    I'm thinking a simple Price is Right game too, everyone tries to guess the prices of objects and the winner gets...bragging rights.

    We used to have section mascots (ours was a dancing elvis), and every so often warfare would break out as one section tried to capture the other sides mascot.

    Maybe an office version of "Capture the flag"?
