Coincidence? Maybe Energiser Instructions

Explain to your delegates that they are going to have a quick break and play a game called Coincidence? Maybe.

Ask your delegates to find the person in the room, whose birthday is nearest to their own.

Before they begin, ask them to write down what they think the chances are of their being another person who celebrates their birthday on the same day of the year as they do.

When the mingling stops, ask what they initially thought the chances were of two people having the same birthday?

Capture the responses on a flip chart. Also, ask whether anybody now wants to change their mind?
