XTIVIA Virtual Holiday Party Games 2021

Holiday Heist Game

Let the good times roll in this holiday-themed heist game! You and your team will solve puzzles, decode messages, and earn clues in hopes of being the first to solve the mystery of who stole the famed eggnog recipe. This game is great for competitive groups who love puzzles and stories.

Virtual Holiday Party

If heisting or trivia aren’t your thing, the virtual holiday party room celebrates winter holiday traditions from around the world. An engaging party host from teambuilding will spark laughter and high spirits as your group enjoys festive activities and challenges.

XTRIVIA Tech Trivia

This game is all the fun of a slightly chaotic pub-trivia night, but with the added twist that all of the trivia is custom tailored XTIVIA Tech Trivia. Come test your knowledge of tech and discover once and for all, who’s the biggest tech geek at XTIVIA?

 

Santa Zoom Room

If you have kids you want to bring in on the fun, you can join the Santa room featuring holiday music, coloring sheets, and an appearance from Santa Claus.

XTIVIA Virtual Holiday Party 2021 FAQs 

 

GAMES

(see the XTIVIA Virtual Holiday Party 2021 Games Guide for game details)

Q: Can we stay for half of one session and then try out another one?

A: Nope. The hosts and your teammates are counting on your participation in the room or on that team for the full 90-min session. Your team needs you, so you will want to stay in the room and game that you signed up for as XTIVIA is paying for that RSVP.

Q: Do I need to have my camera on to participate?

A: We have a strong preference and hope you will be on your webcam for the games and awards. Some games may require a visual to collaborate. In the spirit of the holidays and the holiday party, we hope to see your face.

Q: I’ll be in a sales call until halfway through the Games. Can I still join a party session, or do I have to wait to join the Awards portion?

A: Unfortunately, you cannot join one of the other game rooms, as team selection is at the very beginning. We look forward to seeing you after the games have been completed during the awards ceremony!

Q: Can multiple people play a game on one computer?

A: Not this time. For the best experience, we are offering the game time for XTIVIA Employees only and we are paying for that RSVP game choice.

Q: Are there prizes for winning the games?

A: Well, we are hoping that you feel showered with surprises and fun at the event on December 9, and though we will not have physical rewards for the games, you will have bragging rights until the next game day!

Q: Can I attend all of the events, or do they overlap?

A: You are invited to attend one game session and the awards session. All of the game sessions run concurrently.

Q: Can I spectate at the game events instead of participating?

A: Unfortunately, we did not choose that as an option with our game vendor, so spectating is not an option.

FOOD

Q: What if I already have a DoorDash personal account?  Can I use that account for the event order?

A: No, you will be using XTIVIA’s DoorDash Portal

If you joined us last year, your credentials are the same, just go to doordash.com/teams/join and sign in with Google or with your saved information from last year.

If you are new this year, you will need to create an account with DoorDash with your XTIVIA email address before ordering. Simply go to doordash.com/teams/join to join XTIVIA’S portal. The portal will be active prior to the event.

 

Q: What is the budget for my DoorDash order? What if I spend less than that?  What if I spend more?

A: The budget is $75.00. There is no expectation of spending the exact amount budgeted. A meal could be under the budget, or you may choose to order a fun pizza dinner for all in your home. A special occasion meal is also an option. The sky’s the limit on what you order.  If the order exceeds $75.00, you will be responsible for the difference in cost.

 

Q: Do I have to order my DoorDash during the holiday party?

A: We do have a special with DoorDash, and the window is from 1:00 PM to 11:59 PM YOUR LOCAL TIME. By using DoorDash, there is no need for filing an expense report or providing a credit card at purchase. Payment will be authorized by using DoorDash, and XTIVIA will pre-pay.

 

Q: Can I order from multiple vendors on DoorDash within the $75.00 budget, like to order coffee and dessert after dinner?

A: Yes, you are able to order from multiple DoorDash vendors during our party window, up to $75.00 of which will be covered by XTIVIA. If the order exceeds $75.00, you will be responsible for the difference in cost.

Q: What if DoorDash isn’t available in my area?

A: We spoke with a few of you who live remotely and do not have access to DoorDash. If that is the case, get approval from HR@xtivia.com, then submit your expenses from your holiday dinner for full reimbursement (up to $75.00 with your receipt being dated 12/09/2021, the day of the party – as the whole purpose is for us to have food together.)

Q: What if DoorDash restaurants cannot meet my dietary restrictions or allergies?

A: We spoke with a few of you who have restrictions or allergies and cannot safely order from  DoorDash. If that is the case, get approval from HR@xtivia.com, then submit your expenses from your holiday dinner for full reimbursement (up to $75.00 with your receipt being dated 12/09/2021, the day of the party – as the whole purpose is for us to have food together.)

Q: What if DoorDash isn’t reliable in my area? Can we use something else like Uber Eats or Postmates?

A: We spoke with a few of you who have had access issues to DoorDash. However, DoorDash is our preferred partner and by using their service, there is no need to file an expense report. If issues with DoorDash arise, you will be responsible for any purchases outside of DoorDash and filing an expense report for reimbursement. To qualify for reimbursement, you must get approval from HR@xtivia.com, submit expenses from your holiday dinner (up to $75.00) with your receipt being dated 12/09/2021, the day of the party, as the whole purpose is for us to have food together.

 

FAMILY

Q: Is this event child-friendly?

A: XTIVIANs love family, and we have a family-friendly option. We also know that these times are unlike any others, so sometimes all of the family is in one room as we work. For this reason, we invite you and your family to visit the Santa Room, which will feature some holiday music, coloring sheets, and a visit from Santa. 

The Santa room will not include any structured games or activities, so you and your family are welcome to come and go as is convenient for you and your schedule.

 

HOLIDAY DONATIONS

Q: In previous years, we were given a holiday gift card with the option of donating any portion of this gift card to our favorite charity (XTIVIA would reimburse up to $50). Is that still happening? 

A:  Yes. But we will invite you to our virtual telethon on the day of the party so you can share links and information with others so they can learn about one of the non-profits you support. Watch for the Slack Channel coming soon.
