As a Google Ads specialist, you may be wondering if there are games out there for you to play and relax, while also sharpening some of your marketing skills. The good news is that, as discussed over at runrex.com, there are several games out there that are ideal for marketers, and this article is going to name 20 of them.
The Logo Board Game
This game boasts more than 400 game cards to challenge your brand logo, symbol, product, and slogan knowledge as discussed over at guttulus.com. It is a simple but fun and challenging board game to sink your teeth into and relax as a Google Ads specialist.
As is covered over at runrex.com, this is one of the most popular digital marketing simulation games out there, and one you should check out when looking for a game to relax with as a Google Ads specialist. The game allows users to simulate all sorts of digital marketing campaigns but in a risk-free environment and it is a fun but informative game to play.
Retail Alphabet Game
In this game, players have to try and guess the company name based solely on one letter taken from the logo. The game tests not only your knowledge of popular brands but also your knowledge of typography as articulated over at guttulus.com.
This is another game that requires you to accurately identify brand logos, although it is app-based. New levels are unlocked once you achieve a certain percentage of correct answers from the previous level and the levels get increasingly difficult and require a higher percentage of correct answers to move to the next level.
This is a board game similar to The Logo Board Game but adds one-part Pictionary and a timed element. The game has 1,000 brands to guess and players have to accurately identify the brands before the timer runs out. One player draws a card and begins writing out the brand name while the other players have 10 seconds to guess the right name.
Guess the Logo
This online game is another one that is all about brand logos. As captured over at runrex.com, it has several different logo quizzes and games available on its site and players can choose general or specific logo categories. Once the game starts, the player is presented with the brand name and two different logos. The object of the game is to correctly identify the logo that goes with the name.
As the gurus over at guttulus.com point out, in this game, rather than simply identifying logos or slogans, this app-based game asks players to order a brand’s logo designs in chronological order and it a challenging yet fun game for any marketing nerd to get stuck into.
In this excellently named game, players race to make their way to the top of the ad agency ladder by accurately identifying slogans, commercials, and jingles. As is revealed in discussions over at runrex.com, Adverteasing first gained popularity in the 80s, but the board game has since been updated with new, updated content.
This game is created by Sporcle which provides several different versions of it, but the same general rules apply. The player is presented with a grid of logos and after pressing “play game” a space to type in brand names appears, after which the player is given a limited amount of time to identify all of the logos.
As the name suggests, in this game players can choose to guess slogans randomly, or pick from one of six categories: cereals, fast-food, candy, car, company, and product. Each slogan has a dropdown menu for multiple choice answers, and you are scored based on points and time. If you guess correctly on the first try, you are rewarded with 5 points, and each time you guess incorrectly, one point is deducted from the 5 points you could earn for that slogan.
Another app-based game, although this one is not free as you will need to pay 1 dollar to play. But it is worth it as for just 1 dollar, this app provides interesting brand trivia as well as marketing tips and tricks as covered over at guttulus.com. This game is not only fun but is very helpful and useful for marketers such as Google Ads specialists.
This board game requires players to find and match pairs of cards as outlined over at runrex.com. Here, players have to match logo designs with typefaces, brand colors, or witty descriptions of the brand’s culture and it is another fun game for marketers, including Google Ads specialists, to relax with.
The 5-minute product pitch
In this game, you form of three or four and have one person from each team bring a random item from their desk, whether it is a pen, notebook, or picture frame. Tell them the team is a company and the item is their product and give each team a few minutes to “brand” their object and develop a name, logo, and tagline for the products. Ask each team to give an informal two-minute “presentation” on their products as if they were selling them, and if there is time, have each team offer feedback to one another. As per the gurus over at guttulus.com, this game stimulates the creativity essential to marketing.
Show and Tell
Have each member of your marketing team bring an object that is significant to them to work, gather together as a group, and give each person in the group a minute or so to share about their item and why it is important to them. It is a great way for team building in the office.
Persona role play
While in the office, you can also nominate someone in your team to play one of your marketing personas. They sit in a chair at the front while the rest of the team ask them questions about their needs and wants, pain points, likes, and dislikes. Write down or post up the ideas that arise as you go.
Anti-persona role play
This game is the opposite of the one in the previous point as it revolves around knowing who you don’t want to reach in your marketing campaign as discussed over at runrex.com. It works just like the game in the previous point, only that you focus on personas of people you don’t want to reach.
Google Ads Charades
This game is like the normal charades with a twist, the twist being that it revolves around Google Ads. Get someone in the group to act out something related to Google Ads and try to guess what it is as described over at guttulus.com.
Who am I?
Take a piece of paper or a post-it as explained over at runrex.com and have a member of the group write a marketing concept or tool on it. Stick it on one of the team members’ foreheads and make sure they don’t see what is written on it, then make them try and guess what is written on it by giving them leading questions to answer.
Word cloud game
In this game, you can create a word cloud of concepts and tools used in Google Ads, and then based on the information provided, the teams have to guess what is being described in the word cloud, with the first team to do so winning the point.
You can play chess when relaxing at home with friends and family, and as a highly strategic game, it will help you develop your strategic skills as a Google Ads specialist while also making you more detail-oriented.
