We're reintroducing drinks on the last Friday of the month at my office, and me and a couple of others are in charge of organising it for this Friday. The problem is that it's hard to get a croud - we have 30 odd people at my office, but it's challenging to get a turn out, because everyone is a bit bored of the same old things. Going to a bar or having drinks at the office no longer get people terribly excited. I'm seeking good ideas of what we can organise. We're right in town, so bars are readily available. There's also plenty of room at the office for any great ideas. We have a budget of around $200 - $300. If we get something good going, I'd expect a turnout of around 20 people, ages from early twenties upward.

What city? But maybe something like in Welly there is lanes - which is an R18 bowling place after 6pm and it's pretty funky?

Your workplace must be more sophisticated than mine. Most of my colleagues, myself included, are happy to just sit around, get pissed and gossip about anyone who's not present.

We hired out a PS2 and Buzz with 8 controllers for one of our drinks nights. It was good fun and everyone seemed to enjoy it.

One of the other teams organised a drinks night where we were split into groups of about 3 or 4 and given one of those cheap Lego bulldozer sets. The pieces were laid out on the table, and one member of the group was blindfolded while the others had to tell them how to build the model. After five minutes, the next person in the group was blindfolded to complete the next stage. First group to complete the model won. It was very entertaining and surprising complicated... :-P

Hmm, neat ideas, but I doubt they'd be popular with the older folks, who make up the majority of my workplace. RE: the lego idea, we did a similar thing at my Basic, but disassembling and reassembling C9 machine guns. Lots of fun, and very very difficult.
