Team Building for $39.99

Board games are not only fun; they are great for team building. Co-operative games are a great way to see how people operate under pressure. Your company may have a disaster recovery plan but most DR tests do not involve unknowns and stress. I hope to inspire you to incorporate gaming into work.
