A communication where you try to talk your blindfolded teammate through an series of obstacles.
Active. A lot of movement may be required.
What You Need To Play
Blindfolds Numbers of moveable obstacles such as balls, chairs, jackets, shoes etc
Define a square playing space. Have the team create a list of things that are detrimental to functioning as a group such as poor communication, anger, jealosy, wrong tools, not listening etc. For each characteristic/action, throw an object into the playing space, the "minefield." Have the group choose partners. One partner is blindfolded at one end of field. The non-blindfolded partners stand at the opposite end of the field and try to talk their partners through the minefield without running into any of the obstacles. If the blindfolded partner touch an object they die and another partner must try. However, once they are blindfolded the other team can move the objects around if they choose. The team with the highest number of successful crossings wins.
