We want to install some fun culture into our start-up workplace - it gets busy busy and we've got a great team but want them to enjoy the place too. We don't have huge budgets or space, but are open to any innovative suggestions! (although as a big kid, would be good to have at least one big (fun) ticket item that would work all-round for a bit of friendly competition without just being a one-minute-wonder gimmick). Also, we're trying to be resourceful as it's a (temporary) 1000sqft serviced office to make it looks softer / more aesthetically pleasing - plants for dividing space / couple of sofas for meetings etc. Any other thoughts all welcomed. Thanks!!!!
Get a [guitar (Jasmine S35 Acoustic Guitar)] + [chord buddy (chordbuddy.com)] + [electronic tuner (Intelli IMT500)]. Any time you hear a good song, look up the chords for free on ultimate-guitar.com, save the page as a .pdf, and you'll be able to play the song right away on the guitar with the chordbuddy, even if you don't know how to play the guitar. You'll bond over sing alongs, and you'll be learning how to play the guitar at the same time with the help of the chordbuddy.

Get an ENO hammock for people to nap in. It's healthier and easier to sleep in than a real bed, and can be stowed away. They'll be able to work later.
