Team Games – Prop Building
Last month was a very busy month running climbing sessions, the weather was great (mostly) and it was hard to find the time to do much of anything else. One thing I did do though was start on the construction to many of our prop based team games. I like to think of myself as a handyman when if comes to DIY and anything to do with my hands really! However, “woodwork” was never a very strong point of mine so I started with prop building and wondered how well it would all turn out! A lot of the team games we do are non-prop based and merely need people for the game but for some team games you really need to have some sort of a prop. The first set of games I wanted to build were, Gutter Ball, Steeping Stones, Tangrams, Sticks & Fingers, Toxic Waste and Team Skis. All the props were finished over the month and I am not going to describe each team game to you (you will have to come out and try them for yourselves 😉 ) but the photos here are of the “Team Skis” game. Needless to say I was very happy with the finished prop/result. They have already been tried and tested by a few groups and have gone down a treat. I am currently looking at some more puzzle team based games that I will add to the list of prop based games over the winter! Of course we have a nice long list of other team games that involve people only…not to say they are any less challenging! 😉 Keep an eye on the website for more info on “Team Games” coming soon! Get in touch if you are interested in having a “Team Games Challenge Event” (we can come to a place near you) or if you would like to mix your rock climbing and abseiling with some team games. One final word, building the props was actually great fun albeit time consuming and I look forward to putting together more puzzles / games over the coming months.
