People who work in distrubuted/remote teams: • Does your company run weekly team retros? (retrospectives) • What's the most fun retro theme/topic you had experienced? (only for science, totally not going to steal the ideas for my retro tomorrow) • What is the intention for these retros in general and how does it help with your work, building rapport, productivity, etc.?

We do release on every 22nd of the month, and feature freeze for the release happens on every 17th of the month, so usually the release retro happens next working day after 22nd.

We have played Poker on The idea is just to do something fun and smart together. We also play CS once a week. Just keeps us together. We do ad hoc retros whenever we “feel” that we are slightly lost. No fixed schedule.

We have a weekly patch release, and a major release every 8 weeks. We plan our sprint every Monday and retro on Fridays. Retros are mostly what went well for work/non-work, and what could have been better with Action items.

We have a retro meeting every two weeks, on Fridays. We discuss what went bad, what went good, and we pitch ideas of things that can make us better.
