      Good question Chelsea. The cords used in the photo were 3mm cords purchased from an outdoor gear shop, but you do not need to go to that much expense. Any rope or cord that comes in different colours will work fine. Try your local hardware depot or art & craft outlet for options.

    I played this with 8 ropes and all were the same color. My clients loved the challenge. They still were able to pick out the correct one surprisingly often and quickly. I used it as my ice breaker and it when well.

      Brad, yes, multiple ropes of the same colour would certainly be more of a challenge – perfect for those groups that are up for it. Well played 🙂
