Game: Mine Field

Creative Problem Solving & Collaboration Exercise


Creative Problem Solving & Collaboration Exercise

What you'll need:

An empty room or hallway
a collection of common office items



Use boxes, office chairs, water bottles, etc., to create an obstacle course of "mines" within your empty space.

Divide the group into pairs, where one partner is blindfolded. The other must guide that person from one end of the course to another without setting off any mines. The person guiding their partner cannot enter the course and must only use verbal instructions to get their partner through.

Depending on the number of people you have and how difficult you want this activity to be, you can vary the number of pairs trying to complete the course at the same time so that pairs have to work harder to listen to each other and communicate clearly.
