Agile Games: How to Hug


This simple game is a great way to stage a warm welcome, break the ice, and help your team members feel connected to one another—even if they’re distributed across the globe.


  • Place a picture of yourself on the circle

  • One person is chosen to move their photo the the center of the circle

  • Enlarges picture

  • Everyone else moves picture in so that it's touching the inner picture. That's your virtual hug!
