Draw what comes in your mind first

  • The idea of the game: To make everyone draw what comes in their mind first and stitch a story together.

  • The Facilitator: Divides the team into two groups: team A & B.

  • Teams job: Each member must draw, what comes in their mind first on a sticky note. Make sure there is no text/explanation with the drawing.

  • How it ends: Every individual must guess what the other team member has drawn and write a short description. For example for team A - Tom will guess for John, John will guess for Rebecca and so on. The team with the best story wins.

  • Teams job: Everyone will put up their interested profiles on to the post below their names.

  • How it ends: Everyone individually talks about their passion and explains their interests to the team.

Thought process
