    Great sequence and activity to help a group setup their interactions, values, intentions and belief, structures. I love the fact that they get to immediately test out and reflect afterwards on those values and constructs in a practical way.

    Usually the first part of establishing common ground rules might be where it ends at. This practical activity pushes further in a fun and challenging manner and encourages more by in and deeper connection and reflection to concepts that were put down on paper.
