A simple game to break the ice (with music)

Start having fun working remotely!

Breaking the ice and having fun in remote settings can be particularly challenging without intentionality. Kasem is here to bring the fun to everyday meetings by allowing people to submit songs they like, return a song to the channel, discuss as a team, and vote on who they think submitted the song. Use the last five minutes of your meetings to get to know your team.

How it works

  1. Post instructions to the channel with the /kasem-help command.
  2. Submit a Spotify or YouTube link using /kasem-addSong.
  3. When the team completes a goal use the /kasem-play command to post a song to the channel.
  4. Listen to the song and guess who submitted it.
  5. Use /kasem-reveal to see who submitted the song and learn why they chose it.
