September was a very busy month here at playmeo, slowly inching closer to our goal of breaking through the 500+ activity threshold before the end of the year.
With more than 50 exciting activities just waiting in the wings, let me tell you more about what’s already been released.
This was a group initiative I was first introduced to in 1990 as a training intern with Project Adventure. It’s a fun team puzzle that is very simple to present and will occupy your group for a good 20 to 30 minutes as they try to solve the problem. To set up, you provide each person with a small slip of paper with a clue on it that they cannot show to anyone else, but they can read the information out loud. The group has everything they need to solve the problem, they just need to make sense of the information they have. playmeo members can download the Print+Play clues ready to be distributed to their groups. Then, once you enjoy this team-building exercise, you’ll be ready to try two very similar mystery-type initiatives – Bank Robbery and County Fair – coming in October.
This was a HUGE group game – both in terms of the number of participants and its sheer size – that I created in the late 1980s as a summer camp leader in the USA. Think of a giant board game with giant dice and small teams. It’s a high energy, outrageously fun activity that will suit any group that is wanting to have fun and interact, especially in a few zany ways. My only regret is that I do not have any video of those early days to show you. Trust me, it’s a hoot.
Perhaps, having exhausted yourself with BlueStarOpoly, you can try this latest health & wellness exercise to calm everyone down. playmeo has focused heavily on adding more to its collection of activities that enhance wellbeing, and Come To Your Senses is our latest. You can download the simple meditation script to make it super-easy to present, or of course, make up your own. This mindfulness exercise is ideal for helping your group to relax and be present.
Check back often. Our latest activity uploads occur almost every week.
