4 Ways To Make Your Home Office Way More Fun

All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. It's time to tap into your inner child and adorn your office with fun and games. Sure, you might get a little less work done, but you'll have a lot more fun doing it. And it's been statistically proven* that a game of basketball is the best way to relax your eyes after staring at a screen for too long.

*OK, so it's never been proven that any of these games offer any tangible benefits to your home office productivity. But they sure are a blast to keep around.

When you do get sick of the strain from staring at a computer monitor, avert your eyes to one of these fun office-friendly games:

If the real (and very sharp) thing is too intense for your space, go with a more safe magnetic dartboard.
OUR PICK: Magnetic Roll-Up Dartboard by Trademark ($18.81, Amazon.com)

Mini Basketball
Tossing crumpled paper into the trash bin is an age-old office game. But if you want to raise the stakes, and maybe play a few rounds of PIG with your office mate, hang a NERF-style soft mini-basketball hoop.
OUR PICK: Sklz Pro Mini Hoop ($20, Amazon.com)

Ping Pong
If you're sharing an office, try out a multi-player game like ping pong. Even the biggest CEOs know that ping-pong is the best team building activity out there. If you can't fit a table in your office space, try out a put-it-anywhere set.
OUR PICK: Sportcraft Anywhere Table Tennis Set ($13.86, Amazon.com)

Task Chair See-Saw
Yes, we're jealous of these girls at the Xtra Office in Singapore. A girl can dream, right?
