Communication Challenge


Give everyone a number. They have to arrange themselves in numerical order by communicating with each other without speaking or holding up fingers. They make up their own sub-language or sign-language and it often is pretty amusing. For Round Two, have people arrange themselves in order of birth or in calendar months (like the game, Mute Organization).

    This is a simple but goody! (you know… when you need a quick game with no props- this one works)

    We’ve used this game for our leaders before and it’s kind of fun to watch. Our group is too large to use it with everyone, but we could probably try it with our small groups (we haven’t, though).

    Lindsey, I probably wouldn’t let them make noises in this game, but that is up to you.
