A good trust game to get everyone moving around and comfortable with each
To begin, have everyone close their eyes. (This is where you can choose
to use blindfolds or not. If you think you can trust 'em not to open their
eyes, then no blindfolds are needed!) Secretly pick one person in the group
to be the leader by tapping him on the shoulder after everyone's eyes are
closed. He should not so anything that lets anyone else know he is the
leader, but he should open his eyes.
Have everyone begin walking around. When two people meet, they should say,
"Huh?" to each other. (You can choose to be a little more creative with
your word, here.) The leader, although he can see, cannot talk, so when
someone meets the leader and says, "Huh?" he will not respond. When someone
finds the leader in this way they can open their eyes and line up behind
the leader, forming a chain as more and more students find the leader.
The students in the chain still have to answer, "Huh?", however.
The game ends when everyone has joined the chain behind the leader.
