MAIN POINT: You can use this game as a kickstarter for a discussion about friends leading you down the wrong path or finding God’s will.
Choose two competitors. One is taken out of the room. The other has 1-3 minutes (depending on the size of your group) to arrange a maze, using all the people in the room. The maze can be as creative and complicated as he/she wants as long as there are a beginning and an end.
After the maze is arranged, bring in the second person who is now blindfolded and let them go. See how long it takes them to make it to the end of the human maze.
Repeat the process switching the two competitors.
Variation: Especially if you have a small group (under 30) use chairs as well as people to create the maze.
Important Note: Do not play this game if you have a rough group of kids. They may hit or trip the blindfolded person as they are trying to find their way through the maze and it could quickly become violent (too much like the game of Gauntlet).
