Gaming with the Gamers

On Friday we had a great day. A great day that required a weekend of recovery but a great day none the less.

We’d been asked by the Director of Gaming for Betfair to run a team day for his senior team and the day started in the most civilized way with breakfast at Soho House:

(We recommend the sausage sandwiches)

We then spent the morning doing Belbin with some interesting and entertaining results before jumping in taxis to get to the start positions for an afternoon spent playing our Property Trading Game…

Without giving the game away we felt we had to share this photo of one of the teams attempting to gain some points with their inventive photo that involved them all planking (well kind of) on the bollards at Trafalgar Square:

The team seemed to have a great day (we are fingers crossed for some great feedback and you never know maybe a testamonial) and they ended up drinking cocktails and having dinner whilst we snuck off for tea and peppermint foot lotion!!

It was certainly interesting being the people running a game with a team who manage games for a living and we didn’t have the knowledge to argue when one team member predicted (rightly) that they were 1.64 odds on to win…

Despite the November weather the day was a blast and one group definitely benefitted and that was the British Legion as the poppies were out with pride and more than one collection box felt the benefit of the team’s exuberance. This scene in one of the pools at Trafalgar Square seemed worthy of capture whilst the team recovered from their inventiveness
