We each rely on a broad range of communication skills every day. This game draws attention to issues that raised when our ability to communicate is restricted. Simultaneously, the game pushes participants to recognise when to move on and not become ‘stalled’ on challenges.
- Eight or more
Explain that they are going to play a game that will test their communication skills. Split the group into two teams. Ask each team to nominate an artist.
The artist will receive a list of words. It is their job to draw what is on each card. The rest of the team must guess what the artist is drawing. Their only tools will be a pen and some blank paper.
Each team is allowed three minutes, as a team, to define their strategy.
The teams will only get sight of the words once the game is ready to start.
The objective of the game is to guess the words drawn, in the quickest time.
