Box Game Event
Fun; Getting to Know Each Other; Ice-breaking
Box games for small groups: Pictionary; Scrabble; Boggle; etc.
Have people bring their favorite box games. Set up several tables with chairs.
People break into small groups to play one of the games of their choice. Several games can be going on simultaneously. At certain intervals, the organizer indicates that it's time to switch - each person takes another's place at a different game, mixing up the groups.
Did the game have any lessons applicable to the group's normal activities? How does collaborating as a team feel different from competing in a game? How did switching to take on another's play change the dynamics of competition? What did you learn about each other through playing together?
All play one game at the same time.
