Several pieces of silverware or short wooden sticks (e.g. matchsticks)
Tell members of the group that you are going to use sticks/silverware/etc. to recreate an ancient number system. It is their goal to figure out how the system works. Place several sticks or pieces of silverware in a formation on the table. Unknown to the participants, the number will always be the number of fingers you have placed discretely on the table. If a participant thinks he or she knows the pattern, ask him of her or to give an example rather than stating the answer so that other participants can continue to play
Can be done as individuals or as small teams.
The idea is to push the skewer through the balloon so that it passes through the centre of the balloon and out the other side. They are not allowed to put anything on the balloon or skewer (no sticky tape) and they are not allowed to deflate the balloon, pierce it then reinflate the balloon.
There are two thick spots on the balloon, one at the neck and one opposite at the top of the balloon. Gently push the skewer through the neck and then gently push it out through the thick spot on the top of the balloon. Ta Da, a Balloon kebab!
Two truths and one lies
Introduce the activity by saying this is a way for people to learn some fun things about each other that don't come up in everyday conversations. Each person should think of three statements about themselves that no one else in the room already knows. It helps to jot down notes. Two must be true statements and one should be a lie. The more subtle or believable the better. Take turns in the group having each person share their three statements and voting on which one was the lie... e.g.
Tom shares: 1) I broke my leg snowboarding in high school. 2) I speak 3 languages. 3) I shaved my whole body once after losing a bet. The facilitator would say: Thanks Tom... "ok group, the three options are broke his leg, speaks 3 languages, shaved whole body... which one was the lie? All those who say leg? languages? shaved body?... ok most people don't think you speak three languages, is that true?" If time permits, have Tom share a little more background about one or two of his statements. "Tom, if it wasn't because you lost a bet, why did you shave your whole body?"
Amazing Race Around the World
The Fun, The Laughter, The Mayhem !
This amazing race is a fun team challenge that appeals to all personality types.

•Completing a range of hilarious 'Dares'
•Performing a number of fun team based tasks
This is a great activity that allows staff to bond in small groups, have fun, laugh and get a little active!
How will each team decide to play the game? Will they complete the high value challenges or go and do the fun stuff first?...and why is that man wearing Knee High Boots?!?
"Think 'The Amazing Race' on Happy Gas...without the prize money!"
Race Around the World can be delivered anywhere, however we highly recommend that it is delivered within the CBD of a City or Town.

Where Does Race Around the World Work Best?
Race Around the World is a fun team activity that works well as part of any staff team building or celebration. Race Around the World is great for;
•Fun Team Building Days
•Work Christmas Party
A computer with an internet connection to research some good questions ahead of time.
Pick a few questions off Plinky.com
Sometimes a good icebreaker can be as simple as answering a good question or prompt. If the goal is to get people warmed-up, talking, laughing and having fun... sometimes that's all it takes. For a live group, the facilitator picks a question or prompt and asks people to pair up and share with their answer with their partner. For an online community, ask people to post their answers to a community forum or message board.
Plinky is a service/community that you can subscribe to will send you good questions & prompts every day. You can also browse/search their archives.
Here's a sample of some of their recent prompts that would make great icebreaker questions for the start of your next meeting:
Paul Simon was going to Graceland, Toto blessed the rains down in Africa – what place would you write a song about? Explain why it's worthy of song.
If you were named based on your traits, habits, or likes, what would your name be? One of our engineers, "Orders Lots of Stuff From Amazon," wants to know.
Have you ever bought anything that has its own infomercial (like the ShamWow® or Snuggie™)? What compelled you to make your purchase? If you haven't, what have you been tempted to buy?
Animal face-off! Who would win in a fight between a bear and a shark? Defend your pick.
You've been invited on a talk show to explain your job to the hosts. What would you say you do on a daily basis? Explain your duties and describe your day.
'Frankly, Rosebud, you can't handle the truth!' Have a favorite line from a movie? What's the line and why do you like it?
Recommend a book to someone who needs a good laugh. What's so funny?
What city would you retire to if money were no object? Why would you spend your golden years there?
Congratulations! You're going to be featured in the next issue of Sports Illustrated. How does your bio read? For which sport, game or athletic feat are you profiled? What details, factual or otherwise, would the sporting world learn about you?
Who would you rather be seated next to on a daylong bus trip: an irritating talker or a quiet starer? What's your rationale?
What's the best prank you've ever seen?
Describe the greatest put-on you've witnessed (or seen on TV), and why it stuck with you.
Note: they have a lot of questions about relationships, which aren't necessarily appropriate for your group... e.g. "What's the worst way you've ever dumped or been dumped by someone?" is probably not a good way to start your next staff meeting, so use your discretion. Also, the better you can relate the questions to the content of your meeting or training (even if you don't reveal to the participants how it's related until after the activity) the more it will help build community.
None necesssary, but if you are doing this live, after you give people a chance to talk in pairs, you can ask a few volunteers to share with the larger group.
