What are "The Games"

Create a profile to share a little about yourself, become recognizable in the app, and learn about your co-workers.

Once your company has joined Recess, create an account using your company email to make sure you are synchronized with your co-workers.

More than just games, they are a series of team-building activities that motivate and encourage different levels of interaction within the workplace. These games are designed to be workspace friendly making sure that they do not disturb the workflow in any way and are appropriate for the context they are being played in. These games can last different periods of time depending on the game from just a day, a week, to even a month.

Once you go into work, open the app and check for any ongoing games. If there is an ongoing game, once you've swiped, you will be presented with the following countdown. Get ready to play!

The ongoing game will show up along with a set of rules. You can choose to join and start playing.

Now you are ready to go. Good luck! Follow the rules of each game and compete against your co-workers. You can see who else is playing in the "current players" tab as well as share pictures taken of the activity in the camera icon below.

Once you decide to join, you will be presented with a timer showing how much time is left in the current game.

But Wait, There's More!

Participating and winning in games earns puzzle pieces that will help you climb the leaderboards among your co-workers. Additionally, these puzzle pieces can be collected and used to cash in for prizes set by the company as extra motivation for participation, as if having fun wasn't enough!

Additionally, the app allows the users to reminisce on past games in the gallery to look back on old challenges, and laugh about the good times. The gallery compiles the images submitted by participants during the games and keeps them for future enjoyment.
