AN office full of Game Of Thrones fanatics decided to carry out an experiment by building their very own version of The Wall.

Staff at Parcel2Go in Coe Street spent the night planning and constructing the impressive blockade down the middle of the room with cardboard boxes, complete with crows, trees and a shield.

Natalie Richardson, marketing executive for Parcel2Go, said: "We are all big Game of Thrones fans and we thought we would do this as a bit of an experiment.

"It was just to do a workplace experiment to see how much it affected the communication in the office.

"The team was trying to put it together during the night when people weren't there.

"The nxt day everybody came in and I think it was a bit of a surprise. It was quite funny to see.

"I think it looked great and it was all about the little touches with the crows on the wall and the trees as well as the shield which references what the white walkers wear around their neck."

With ice in short supply, the wall was built using 80 cardboard boxes, 3,848 inches of parcel tape and two people with 12 hours to spare to plan and build.

The wall had an immediate effect on the office, with the creative team adopting the role as the wildlings and white walkers north of The Wall and the sales team were the seven kingdoms.

Tensions between the two sides arose when one of the groups finished the last of the milk in the office.

And the invaders from the north eventually breached the Nights Watch defences, as one of them kicked the wall down.

Ms Richardson, who was a wildling during the experiment, said the physical division between the two sections of the office did make the workday challenging.

According to thoughts presented after the wall was knocked down, the teamwork culture 'evaporated'.

Ms Richardson said: "It was a lot of fun but it did make communicating difficult, we had to pass notes over the wall.

"And there was a little bit of disruption between the two sides when one side had the last of the milk but everyone can relate to those workplace frustrations."
