The group face the challenge of walking, as a team, on two planks with rope handles. It is great fun and is typically chaotic for the first few steps. As the team get their act together by communicating, agreeing procedures, being prepared to accommodate one another and thinking of the team rather than pure self interest, then results improve.
Teams align themselves at the start line and need to reach the finish line while standing on a pair of wooden planks, but without stepping on the ground. Being in sync is the key to success.
The basic team building activity is simply completing few steps in a row without anyone touching the ground. More complicated would be completing a specific distance whilst maintaining a rhythm.
Even more complex would be to complete a course that would involve going round obstacles. The longer the course and the more twists then the longer it will take.
This activity needed everyone to work together — including the game leader who is also a member of the team. The game leader needed their team members as much as the team members needed their leader.
