Categories and Content

There are 10 category listings to help you locate the perfect game or specialized activity.

Icebreakers are games designed to 'break the ice' and put people in the right frame of mind for learning. Whether used to launch a session or embedded in a program, they help participants feel relaxed with each other and you as the facilitator.

Energizers can be invaluable to achieve a high-energy start to a session, reinvigorate participants following breaks, and as 'attention-switchers' during a session.

Outdoor Games provides a range of activities from treasure hunts to physical challenges and puzzlers for fun and interactive learning in the outdoors. Ideal for taking participants from their comfort zone into an action learning environment.

Puzzlers includes a broad range of games from the mathematical to fantasy scenarios and word games to challenge your group and stimulate thinking.

No Materials are activities that can be run without any resources. Perfect for the last minute addition to a session or for travel.

Time Conscious games are aimed at those with a need for short activities of 10 minutes or less.

Games for Pairs is a selection of activities designed for sessions where participants are grouped into pairs.

Team Games are all about injecting interactivity and experiential learning into sessions with multi-teams. These games are competitive on an inter-team level while also requiring each team to hone their teamwork skills.

Group Games are games designed to involve all participants in a non-competitive arena. These games are either conducted with the group as whole, as individuals or in sub-groups formed for discussion and learning.

TMS Games are designed to highlight Team Management Systems concepts in a fun and interactive way while providing real learning through demonstration and application.

There are 7 subcategories: High-Energy Teams Model; Linking Skills; Pacing; QO2™, Types of Work; Values; Work & role preferences.
