The NineStack team is known to celebrate different occasions in the office just to break the monotony of work. This year, they got together to hold an Easter celebration, just before everyone went on leave for the Easter weekend.
Organized in-house, the entire NineStack team were excited to participate in what they called the Great Easter Egg Hunt. Divided into three teams of six members each, they set out to hunt for twelve, differently coloured Easter eggs that had been hidden all over the Nordic Intent campus in Porvorim. These eggs were numbered from one to four and had to be found in ascending order giving the teams a fair chance to find all of them.
Each team was assigned a particular colour and after the whistle was blown, the hunt commenced. Only one member was allowed to look for the Easter Eggs at a time, for a minute and would have to be back at the starting point before his or her time was up. If the eggs were found in any other order, they would have to be put back in their original spot and the hunt would have to be started again.
While the hunter was busy searching for Easter eggs, the rest of the team was kept busy with a puzzle of a cut-up Easter bunny that they had to put together. If they finished quickly, the entire team could join the Easter Egg hunt.
With all the excitement over the game, there were a few people that didn’t listen to the rules properly. What ensued was a mad scramble to find the hidden eggs, with a few people finding the exact ones that they weren’t supposed to. They were most disappointed when told that they’d have to put them back and start again from the beginning.
Everyone had a great time at the Great Easter Egg Hunt, courtesy of the organizers at NineStack with Team 1 being declared the winners, thanks to their excellent teamwork. A couple of the Ninestack team’s newer members also shared their thoughts on the entire experience.
“What started as just an Easter egg hunt, turned out to be a fast-paced thriller! We all were focused on finding the eggs, while simultaneously struggling to complete the Easter puzzle given to us. It was exciting, fun and chaotic, all at the same time. While it only lasted around twenty minutes, we were left feeling really refreshed at the end of it all.

“The Easter activity was a fun affair for everyone. There was a lot of running around and teamwork involved. We all put our communication skills and analytical capabilities to the test in order to figure out where the Easter eggs were hidden. The team with the most efficiency finally won and claimed the prize.”
