Friendly Fire: Why laser skirmish is great for team building

Adults playing laser skirmish

When you're thinking of ideas for your next team building activity, handing out guns to your staff and getting them to shoot each other is probably not the first thing that comes to mind.

However, a friendly round of laser skirmish is a fun (and safe!) way to get your team pumped and help them get to know each other better.

Here are some great reasons why you should bring your work team down to AMF for a fun laser-inspired corporate party!

Physical exercise

Forget charades and human knots - the best team building exercises are the ones that get everyone moving and working up a sweat.

As your employees run around the course, ducking and weaving to avoid the gunfire, they'll be getting a healthy dose of exercise while getting to know each other.

As a bonus, laser skirmish provides the only context when it's appropriate to chase your boss down with a gun in your hand!

Strategic thinking

As laser skirmish is effectively a battle simulation, it's a great way to encourage your staff to get their strategic hats on and work together to achieve a common purpose.

Will your team lay out a careful plan before the start of the battle, setting up well-drilled troops at various points around the maze? Or will you take a more kamikaze approach and get everyone to run around and shoot everything in sight?

Your staff can then bring this strategic mindset back to the office - they can leave their guns in the safety of AMF though!

Shoot down stress

No matter how old or young you are, there are few things more fun and stress-relieving than running around with a laser gun in your hands.

Has Martin from Accounting been bugging you all year? Why not put him in his place with a few well-placed shots to the back.

If you're ready to take your staff to war, bring them down to AMF for a laser skirmish work party!
