Why we built Hijinx

GQueues is a 100% remote company, so it's not exactly easy to get everyone together for in-person bonding on a regular basis. But we know the benefits of team building activities and their important role in achieving our shared goals.

For a long time we played games in our virtual team meetings, but it was always kind of hacking together a way to make things work. We’d need someone to present their screen, someone to keep track of who's turn it was, and someone to tally points. Or even if we found a site with a virtual game room, we wouldn't be able to see both the game and each other unless we had a multiple-monitor setup, and managing more windows is always cumbersome.

In short, it was a little messy.

But these games have a real value, so we kept playing. In the meantime, GQueues founder Cameron decided to take on a little side project to make things easier - and Hijinx was born!

It's made such a difference for our team that we decided to make it available to everyone for free. Our hope is that remote teams everywhere can add a little fun to their meetings, while building trust and collaboration at the same time!
