Use Slack games to celebrate team members, build connections and have fun!

Slack games are a great way to celebrate wins, recognize team members, and have fun in your Slack chat. They're also a great way to get people to talk and interact with ease. 

If you have a new employee on your team, it's vital to integrate them in a friendly and welcoming manner. You can even use games as icebreakers during meetings if you need help getting things started—just make sure that anyone who doesn't want to participate won't be forced into doing so.
