An IceBreaker Game posted by Gail Smith

 

Game Idea - “Ask the King, Please!”

Before your workshop begins, set up a two-sided obstacle course with a crooked path and equal obstacles on each side, and a “lions’ den” behind the “beginning” line.

Procedure:

Divide the group into two equal teams, and pick one person to be “King”. The groups line up, one on each side of the “beginning” line, with a bowl of dry Cheerios or other similar cereal (or popcorn?) and a supply of spoons for each team. The “King” calls out to each team member how to move through the obstacle course, saying something like, “Hop through the obstacle course”.  Crawl, walk backwards. 

Before the first person on each team can begin, he/she must ask, “May I have permission, O King?” Then the person scoops up dry cereal in their spoon and races in the prescribed manner through the obstacle course to deposit their cereal in another bowl at the far end.

 

If the person forgets to ask the King’s permission, he/she must go to the lions’ den until the next person on their team succeeds in completing the course and tags them to release them from the den. The king can change the kind of movement for each new person up.

The first team to finish ends the game. Compare how much cereal is in each team’s bowl, and declare a “winner”, or play it again. Everybody gets treats at the end.
