Blind Count Off!

Material Needed: None
Time Required: 10-20 minutes
Group Size: 5-100
Purpose:  Team building, problem solving skills

  1. Arrange group members in a circle.

  2. Have group members turn around so that their back is facing the middle of the circle.

  3. Tell group members to count as high as they possibly can out loud with only one person saying a number at a time.

  4. There can be no planning and everyone must speak once before someone can say another number.

  5. If two people say the same number at the same time or a number is said twice, the group must start over.

Ask group members to count to a specific number.
