Game description

One partner is blind-folded and must walk through a “mine field”. Place some things to represent the mines on the playing field. The other partner tells the blind-folded partner where to walk. If he touches a mine, he’s out. Goal: Good communication is important!


If several teams are in the same mine field at the same time the game becomes more difficult as the blind person must listen to his partner's voice and must concentrate.


No scoring is required. The blind person should feel how other senses suddenly become important to orientate and experience the surroundings. Additionally the blind person will notice how important it is to listen to the right voice and how important good communication is.
