Treasure Hunt at UMC Utrecht/WKZ uitklapper, klik om te openen

Up for some active entertainment during your lunch break? Go on our Treasure Hunt! Armed with your phone, follow a route through the hospital, scanning QR codes, answering questions, solving riddles and finding clues and brainteasers. Many of the questions are about UMC Utrecht – how well do you know our home base? Compete against your colleagues or strike out on your own. At the end, you’ll find out if you have answered enough questions correctly to be able to open the ‘treasure’ (after you get one last answer right, that is ... ).

This game takes 30 to 60 minutes to play and you can start whenever you like. You can play between 31 May and 29 October, after which we will announce the winner! Directions on how to play the Treasure Hunt will be posted here from 31 May.

Online Vitality Game uitklapper, klik om te openen

Sometimes the body and mind cry out for action, especially now: time to step away from your workplace and get moving! This online Vitality Game gives you a chance to do just that.

You decide the distance for yourself, as well as whether to take part indoors or out. The more metres you cover, the more questions, tasks and riddles you'll be assigned – and the more points you'll score! You and your colleague(s) will start from the virtual meeting point, which you'll each access on your own. You should allow about 90 minutes for this game. While it takes only an hour to play, we need an additional 15 minutes before and after, to announce the winner, for instance! Maximum of 300 players, with at least 4 players per round.

Project Arrow game uitklapper, klik om te openen

Have you always wanted to save humanity? Don't miss your chance to take on the role of world leader! Project Arrow is a hilarious online game that you play remotely in teams of at least four. A daunting challenge awaits: the world is facing a crisis of an unprecedented scale and it is up to you, the world's leaders, to avert the danger. Cooperation, unfortunately, is not your strong suit – but that’s exactly what it will take to prevent the end of the world.

A team of specialists has therefore developed a potentially life-saving online tool: Project Arrow. In this game, you'll discover each other's talents and abilities and then put them to good use in this blood-curdling race against the clock! Moral & purpose: Work together to solve the biggest problems.

You should allow around 90 minutes for this game. While it takes only about an hour to play, you should count on 15 minutes both before and after to get everything set up and finished. We need time, for example, to announce the winning team! Maximum of 300 players, with at least 4 players per round.

Fysiofun Energizer uitklapper, klik om te openen

Are you sometimes or often troubled by a stiff neck or sore back? Maybe you just spend too much time sitting in front of a screen (who doesn't ... ). Fysiofun can help you relax and promotes better workstation posture.

A cheerful (live) physical therapist offers you online inspiration, including tips and simple stretching exercises that you can do at your desk. You will learn how to adopt a flexible and relaxed posture in front of your screen, enabling you to work in a more ergonomic position. Let yourself be surprised by what your body is capable of, learn mega-dexterous and mind-bending body tricks and bring the session to a relaxing conclusion with a mini-meditation session. Afterwards, you'll be ready to face the world (and your screen) again, calm and relaxed.

Fysiofun takes about 15 to 30 minutes. You'll feel much better right away !
