What is the GIF Battle energizer? 🥊

Here’s another fun energizer that will make everyone smile 😁

In this energizer, you’ll share a bunch of prompt flashcards. For each prompt, everyone has to post a GIF in the chat. It’s a sure-fire recipe to get the lulz going.

How does it work?

Invite everyone to take the "superhero pose" (stand tall, look up, and hands on their waist), and imagine they are about to enter a battle with a mighty opponent.

The battle will take place in the chat, so ask them to head over there.

You will then open the Flashcards, and read aloud the different prompts. The participants will need to post a GIF in the chat to react to your prompt.

Here are a couple of examples, but you can make your own:

  • That Monday morning feeling.
  • Me when someone doesn’t sneeze into their elbow.
  • My kids after Halloween: "Where are all our sweets?" - Me:
  • Accidentally hitting "reply all" on a company-wide email.
  • Day 28 of lockdown

You can also close by adding a couple of statements related to the topic of the event.
