Minefield

Game Description: 
A game where one partner must trust the other to guide him or her through a maze of mines. A great ice-breaker and team building exercise! Equipment can be very random, from large items such as chairs to small items like bean bags, whatever you have!
Objective: 
Navigate the Minefield blindfolded with the help of your partner.
Game Rules: 
Scatter random equipment throughout the playing area. Students need to work with partners, one partner wears a wearing a blind fold and the other acting as the guide. The object of the game is for the partner wearing the blind fold to be guided through the 'asteroid field' without walking into any objects, listening only the voice commands of their partner. Guides can only use the words forward, backwards, left, and right, and stop. If the partner with the blind-fold walks into an object the guide performs a quick fitness exercise and then they switch roles and start over.
Saftey Considerations: 
As the participants will be blindfolded make sure to remind them to move slowly and step carefully through the Minefield.
Progression (optional): 
Add a third person to each group. In this variation the guide cannot watch the person walking through the minefield. They must be turned the other way and be giving commands based on the non-verbal action cues of the 3rd person (who can be watching the mine-walker).
