Mingle Games – Mingle #77On August 10, 2019 by Raul Dinwiddie
This is a great exercise to do with big groups. Neccecities: Photos of animals equal to half the number of participants. You cut all the animal photos in half, like puzzle pieces, and then shuffle the pieces. And a deck of playing cards of which you remove the jokers from. The game begins. First you give each participant one half of an animal photo. The goal for each person is to find the person who has the other side of the photo. Before two persons are allowed to compare pieces with each other each person has to tell the other person something about himself. If they don’t know each other they can simply introduce themselves. My name is Rob I am 44 years old and I’m an accountant. And if they already know each other they can tell something of which they think the other person doesn’t know yet. My favourite food is chocolade. They go on like this untill everyone has found the person with his matching puzzle piece. Next you give each person a card from the deck. The jack stands for number 11, the queen for 12, the king for 13 and the ace for the number 1. You tell them they have to find persons to form a group of three of which the sum of their cards is an even number. For example: a 3, a Queen and a King=28 which an even number The first trio that comes up with an even sum of numbers wins, and each person from that group gets a point. Next they have to form groups of three of which the sum of their cards is an uneven number. For example: a 5, an Ace and a 3=9 Again the first trio that comes up with an uneven sum of numbers wins, and each person from that group gets a point. Next you give them a random number. In this case: 12, which has to be the outcome of the card of three persons. They can add up and subtract their numbers to come to outcome of 12. For example: a King, a 5 and a 4=12 The first trio that has been formed that can make the number twelve with their cards wins. Again each person in this group gets a point. Go on like this with a few numbers. They person who at the end has earned the most points wins the game! The trainer guides the team and applies variations to the exercise.
