Oh hey, I am posting something. I am going to use the g word. Don't ban me.

Half my team is in NY and the other half is in LA. We're looking for games we can play together (in real time) without needing to be in the same physical space.

Any ideas?

Lots! Before we get going though, how large are the teams on both sides?

If you have multiple copies of the game, some of these would work:
Don Quixote
Take it Easy! or any of its variants

many of the trivia games would work, too. Wits & Wagers for example.

About 10 people in each office but not everyone will participate. We can videoconference and we use Slack.

I would think Codenames would work well. Great game, too.

Codenames would require some finagling for the spymasters to both look at the cards and get them oriented the right way over skype. If you did not play one office against the other, that part would be easier but then all of the discussions are through the conference call.

+1 for Wits and Wagers.

Spyfall would work well, you would need to secretly message everyone not in the room their location card (and role), so someone might need to be the moderator.

There is probably an awesome way to play telestrations through a simple drawing program and sharing the files, but probably not worth the hassle.

I've found the Pony Express to be quite reliable.

If you can share a screen and audio, take a look at the Jackbox Party Pack (and its sequel). Most of the games play up to 8, with a few playing more (and in particular I think the sequel has some games with audience participation stuff in terms of voting).

With enough copies you could play Cities - all that's needed is an audio connection to call the numbers.

Have they increased their server capacity? We gave up on this because it was increasingly difficult to get everyone able to log in, and it would kick us all out mid game. We used to use it a lot, it's really good for groups that are just a bit too big for board games, but like I said we have given up on it because of what appeared to be undercapacity servers on their end.
