Build It Game - Silent

Report Copyright Infringement View in OSM UK View in OSM NZ


Build a structure in the patrol without the need to communicate


blocks, scraps of wood, twine, sticks, ... any materials with which to build.


Make a pile of materials for each team.

Each team has 2 minutes to inspect their materials, without touching anything. They also need to decide what they are going to build.

Then, each team has 3 minutes to build their structure, without talking.

Be sure to explain all the rules before they start so they can make a plan on how they will accomplish their goal.

After the game, discuss how teams communicated without talking. Did someone just take over or did everyone co-operate? What would they do differently if they tried again?
