Frequenty asked questions

Chinwag helps in 3 key ways:

  • Chinwag breaks down silos by bringing people together from all parts of the company to play short games (e.g. Finding Fusilli). The experience serves as the foundation of future collaboration and conversation.
  • The Chinwag challenges (like Who's my human) re-enforce the human connection, making sure people aren't distilled into just an avatar and their output. Better communication, and less staff turnover.
  • The broader the communication net, the more consistent your vision and values will be across the organisation.

First up you've got to install Chinwag in Slack. Once that's done you'll create a dedicated channel for Chinwag. Anyone in that channel will be invited to participate in a game or challenge once a month.

Both games and challenges take place within Slack or at

Well, it really depends on the activity. The "get to know me as a person" challenges like Who's my human take 3 minutes per session. The games that need teamwork like Finding Fusilli take around 10 minutes per session.

Usually people play a few sessions a month. The activities are intentionally kept simple so they don't cause distraction - they just create good vibes.

Games are co-operative with 3 to 4 people in a group. Teamwork is the order of the day and teams that perform best win based on points 🏆.

Challenges usually involve the whole team. There are usually no points, but we hope that getting to know each other better will be reward enough ❤️

We are focused on building great games and challenges for teams of 16+ people. This is because we've found that's when communication starts to get difficult, and teamwork breaks down.

Connect your company with joy.
