Event Report: Agile Games

WOW!! A big thank you to both Karen and Sam for facilitating a high energy and involved session last Thursday at the monthly Cape Town SUGSA event.

We pretty much dived right into the first game as soon as the session started, without giving us a moment to ponder about what to expect. At first we started with some uncertain smiles but that quickly turned into pure enjoyment as we were laughing, having fun and applying the games to real life scenarios that we are faced with almost every day in our professions.

These were the games played:
Vampire of Straussberg
CrazyChat
Clam-Num-Sing
Columbian Hypnotist
Movers and shakers
Jumping Circle
Go

Get set! Go! Feedback after each activity

At the end of the session, we had a encore moment where we decided there was enough time for an extra game. Hats off to both Karen and Sam for their excellent preparation and still having a few games up their sleeves. The energy definitely ignited a lot of interesting and exciting conversations during drinks and snacks.


And thats Agile Games

 

A huge thanks to all participants on the evening for making it memorable. The evening definitely proved that learning can be fun and entertaining.

    Thanks for a lovely, fun evening. Even though the games were the main event, what really stood out for me was mingling with everyone afterwards and seeing the passion for SCRUM that is shared by all practicing SCRUM masters and the common goal of bringing out the best in all members of their teams. It’s always very inspirational for me to meet people who are genuinely passionate about what they believe in.
