    Love the sequential flow of this activity. Great way of illustrating how something that may be simple can then become more complex as a team grows or more parts, challenges or elements are involved.

    Creates conversations around what might be required for the task to keep going, what strategies might need to be used and also encourage for more creative solution to be implemented.

    Conversations around leadership, effective communication and keeping in touch with all involved, shared responsibilities of the team may also become relevant to the debrief on observations that the groups may make.

    Taking in but not assuming the ability of individual team members, choosing an inclusive variant would be great. If not possible, there is also a conversation around that as well… Very powerful activity indeed.
