July’s Miroverse Challenge: Monster Template! (DATE EXTENDED!)
It’s been an exciting few months at Miro with the release of our monster-sized national ad campaign! We created this ad to show the power of Miro and how easy it is to collaborate, innovate, and solve problems of any size, together in Miro. 🙌
If you haven’t had a chance to see the ad on the big screen (cough living room), across social media, or a billboard towering the city, you can check out the full ad here: Want to see how we used Miro to create the ad? Check out this video
This summer, we are introducing a new type of creative #Miroverse template challenge. We won’t be focusing on just one Miro use case or template type — instead, we want to see your creativity run wild and create ANY type of template / board that features our beloved (yet a little bit scary) character. Yes, we mean it! Any type of template from icebreakers to project planning goes as long as the Monster is incorporated.
Ready, set, create! We look forward to seeing all the amazing boards that you create in Miro 😍

Happy collaborating, and good luck! 👏
@McCall Turner and @Helena Brandist! When opening the Miroverse Monster Template Challenge board, it says that I’m a visitor with view-only access — which means I can’t download or even copy the assets.
Is this intended?
@Henrik Ståhl thanks for letting us know! Can you please let me know if it is working now?
@Helena Brandist! I can copy the assets now, but I can’t paste them to my own board:
And they aren’t downloadable:
Woop woop, thanks
Awfully quiet in here! I’ll kick off with my submission
Everyone has the potential to be a great facilitator if you just harness the right skills in you. The template I created, “Monstrous facilitation superpowers”, allows you to create a portrait of who you are as a facilitator and describe your style.

Yay to the first submission And i absolutely love your template
Here’s another submission: Under the Miroscope – a Miro Monster Game! It’s a pretty simple template that can be used as an icebreaker or team building activity, for example.
Your full name: Henrik Ståhl.
Role and company: Product Manager, Telia Company.
A fun game that can be used as an icebreaker or team building activity. Do it together, pit different teams against each other, make it a solo competition – you decide!
The rules are simple: Look for clues hidden in miniature sticky notes within the gigantic Miro Monster Image using nothing but zoom as your weapon of choice. When you find them, solve the riddles to win the game!
Find all 5 clues hidden in the Monster Image.
Solve the riddle.
By the way...
You start on a 100% zoom level. And the Monster Image is on a 1% zoom level… Start to zoom or meet your doom. Good luck!
Oh wow, your template is AWESOME
@MartinaBonetti! I love the customization part, it’s absolutely brilliant!
Wow wow wow! Love both your templates! 🤩
@Henrik Ståhl @Martina Bonetti
The deadline for this challenge has been extended! Keep the submissions coming!
Hey at all!
So nice to see what happend here. I am excited to see much more of your nice boards!
One Question: The Miroboard whith the Monster assets is filled with some other stuff but not with he monster. Can you help me?
Have a nice day!
@Katja Seidel thanks for your nice message, we’re also really excited to see all the cool templates
Regarding the board with assets- i think you may be looking in a wrong place, you can find the board here.
Looking forward to what you may create!
Thanks for your message!
I don't know if I'm doing something wrong, but I keep coming back to the board with the mood check in. Also when I click on your link.
What can I do?
@Katja Seidel i saw someone pasted that in the board for some reason- it is gone now I ‘brought you to me’ on the board- do you see it now?
BREAKING NEWS: The Monster sticker pack has been spotted in the wild...
Here is my submission for the contest. For me it was obvious that something as destructive as a giant monster fits great to my favorite Ice Breaker method "Pre Mortem". It’s the perfect Ice Breaker which prepares the participants for the upcoming workshop.
→ Perfect as a creative warm-up exercise.
→ Helps uncovering hidden agendas,
→ Great for defining guidelines for upcoming product development

Instructions on how to use the template:
Usually in a creative workshop people try to outdo each other with good ideas. This time we want to achieve the opposite.
Think together about what would really break the project. No matter if it's missed deadlines, irritated users, or some kind of financial downfall. There are no limits to your pessimism.
There are two options.
Either you collect your pre-mortem ideas together as a team. For this you need a person who writes and moderates.
You can also set a timer and brainstorm in parallel. Afterwards, everyone presents their post-its.
First time joining a miro competition so apologies for the messiness in advance!
I thought the Monster could represent something many of us fear but hopefully with the right tools can learn to love - feedback. Especially when working in a team, collecting feedback on complicated processes can feel like it’s best to be avoided. I tried to go for a playful, imperfect and consistent theme because I believe that’s the best mindset we can have around receiving and delivering feedback. Or being a beloved Monster.
I mixed some ideas from retrospectives and the PIE feedback model, which are not my original creation but are general/open knowledge, i.e. not proprietary.
I stumbled upon this challenge and decided to make a version of the popular game "Shoots & Ladders".
All you need to play is a way for each player to roll the die. There are instructions how to use a Miro app for dice rolling, but you can use any other alternative you prefer.
1. Have a way for each player to roll a 6-sided die.
2. Each player rolls the die and moves forward as many fields as the number on the die shows.
3. If you roll a 1 you have three options:
a. Move forward 1 field
b. Pick a player to move forward 1 field
c. Pick a player to move back 1 field
4. If you land on a red traffic light, you skip your next turn.
5. If you land on a numbered field you have to roll the die again and move to the number you rolled.
6. If you land on a field that sends you forward or back, follow the link and place your avatar on the new field.
7. If you land on a "Slayed It" field, on your next turn pick a person AND then roll the die. They go back, you move forward.
8. If you land on a "Miro Hero" field, on your next turn the last person (pick one, if multiple players share the field) moves as many fields forward as you.
9. First monster to reach the "Problem Solved" field wins the love of all the people of Townsville.
Hope you like it!
It’s the final countdown!
Get those submissions in! This will be a tough call. So many creative templates!
