KingsIsle Goes Golfing!
It’s no surprise that there’s a lot of work to get done here at KingsIsle, with two major MMOs running and lots of secret projects in the works! Even though we work hard, we also play hard. About once a month, KingsIsle employees from all different departments get together for a company sponsored fun day. These fun days range from playing board games at the office to going to the Austin food bank and lending a helping hand. Last week we headed to a new Austin sensation, Top Golf, to practice our swing!
Top Golf takes the concept of working on your golf game to a new level by adding targets to the driving range and special micro-chipped balls that track each player’s score. Being a bunch of gamers, we obviously enjoyed turning golf into a live action mini game!
We have some impressive golfers here at KingsIsle! I however, am not one of them and was very content to hit the not-so-very-far-in red and yellow targets. Hey, not everyone can be Tiger Woods!
Even though my drives were pretty close in, we had some golfers with quite a bit of oomph behind their swing. Wait a second, is this golf or baseball? I thought the balls were supposed to hit the targets… not the cars!
Of course, not everyone felt like golfing. Many people here are gamers through and through, and that’s not limited to just computer games. Just inside the driving range, several intense tabletop games were going on like Settlers of Catan and WizWar.
Whether you played golf or games, this latest fun day was a great way to relax and socialize with co-workers outside of the office. Having a fun day like this leaves us refreshed and ready for more hard work ahead. Plus who knows, we may get some cool ideas from these outings! Wizard golfing anyone? Just kidding, but you never know… 🙂
