The Office Board Game Lets You Play As Favourite Dunder Mifflin Employee
If youve ever felt envious of Jims Olympic medals, Pams volleyball skills or Michaels Murder Mystery tactics then you need to get your hands on The Office board game.
The sitcom itself acts as the perfect pastime, with its hilarious quips and brilliantly timed camerawork continuing to provide entertainment no matter how many times youve seen them before.
FYI, Im on my third viewing of the series but I know from memes thats still a rookie number. Still, if you havent yet seen the show be aware theres spoilers involved here.

While the episodes make for great viewing, the game Downsizing allows fans to become even more involved with all things Dunder Mifflin.
In the game, players take on the role of their favourite character from the show, be it Dwight Shrute, Kelly Kapoor or even – God forbid – Toby Flenderson.
Those of you who have seen the show will be familiar with the way the company struggles with having to downsize as they compete with big paper suppliers. The closing of the Stamford branch plays a vital part in Jim and Pams relationship and Im sure we all remember the cringe-worthy moment Michael attempts to fire Creed.
So in keeping with the storyline of the struggling company, The Office board game has players attempting to hold on to their job and make it through the week without getting fired.
The game comes complete with a Dundie award, a dry erase calendar and employee ID cards to allow you to fully immerse yourself in the role.
While you can take on any character, players will either be part of Team Michael, intent on exposing Toby as the Scranton Strangler, Team Toby just itching to issue a pink slip (or two or three), or Toby in disguise. The game requires at least five players – enough to run a small office – and can be played with up to 10 people.
