Game description

For this game you will have to think up pairs of tasks which are opposites and should cause confusion. No one should know that there are opposite tasks. Each member of the group receives a task. Everyone must complete the task as well as possible. Task pairs can be: 1. Open the window to air the room - shut the window because there is a draught. 2: shut the door - open the door. 3: Clear the table - set the table. 4: pile up the stools - make a circle of stools - sit on a stool. 5: Keep the peace - growl a song. 6: The bouncer (no one comes in) - leave the room and go to the toilet. 7: Fetch a broom and sweep the room - empty the bin in the room and throw paper on the floor. 8: Switch off all electrical things (light, radio) - listen to the radio and switch the lights on. 9: No one is allowed to sit at the table - sit at the table and read a book. 10: Clear the table - fetch cutlery and crockery and set the table.


no scoring is planned. The aim is to get the group talking and break down barriers: an ice-breaker game for new groups.
