Circle Untangle

Icebreaker for the start of a new term


Relatively large space, hands


This is an all time classic icebreaker game!

Everyone stands in a big circle and then grabs onto two different peoples hands (not the people standing on either side of them).

Once everyone is holding onto two other peoples hands then the aim is to work together to untangle the circle.

Depending on how many people you have this can take a long time or can be completed very quickly.
