Fun in the Sun Games – Blind Polygon

In this weekly series we highlight fun, simple games which can be played at your local park, around your campsite firepit, with new friends or family. The games vary from icebreakers, name games, and exercise warm-ups, to puzzles or riddles. Check out our weekly post and get out there and have some fun!

Participants: 6 or more

Equipment: Blindfolds (bandanas), two 15-foot lengths of webbing or rope

Timeframe: 10 to 30 minutes

Objective: To build consensus and to accomplish a goal by working and communicating as a team Participants are blindfolded and stand in a line. The webbing (which has been tied together to form one long piece) is placed in their hands. Challenge the group to form a polygon (or a triangle square, rhombus, pentagon, hexagon, etc.) with the webbing by changing their positions. Once the group has come to consensus that they have formed the desired shape, have the lay the webbing down at their feet and remove their blindfolds.
