Use this free training game at the end of a learning event to help consolidate key learning points in a fun way.
You can download a one page set of instructions for a session recall training activity based around the classic game from the link at the bottom of this page, or you can follow the notes below.
Notes – one advantage of this training game is that the participants need to review the session fully in order to develop questions for the other team, as well as being tested themselves.
Arrange participants into two teams (ideally with 4 to 6 players per team) and provide each team with a few sheets of paper and a flipchart and pens.
Ask each team to develop a series of questions based on the learning throughout the training session. These can be as easy or as difficult as they like. However, they must be relevant to the training session.
They should keep these questions secret from the other team for the time being. Once the teams have both completed their questions and written them down on the paper provided, it is time to start the game of hangman!
Each team must take it in turns to pose a question to the other team. If the team get the answer right, then it is their turn to ask a question.
Should they answer incorrectly, a piece of the hangman is drawn on the flipchart and they are challenged to answer the next question. The game ends when the first hangman is completed and the unfortunate team lose.
Use this training game to end a training session on a ‘high’ as well as checking recall and ensuring all learning points have been absorbed.
