This free training game pack contains instructions to help you run a fast paced drawing game to help participants assimilate key learning points at the end of a programme. The training game can be downloaded from the link at the bottom of this page, or you can follow the notes below.
Objective – to help consolidate key learning points from a learning and development event.
This variation of the classic party game is great way for finishing a training event on a ‘high’. It has the added advantage of requiring little by way of preparation or resources.
The main resource you will need is paper and pens or pencils for participants to draw with.
Arrange participants into two teams (ideally with 4 to 6 players per team).
Write key learning points on separate small scraps of paper. Ideally these points will be short comprising 1 to 8 words maximum. You can prepare these in advance or you can write these as key points emerge during the training itself. Fold the pieces of paper so that the writing cannot be seen. Then place these into a box or hat.
Nominate a representative from each team to come up to the front of the room. Ask one of the representatives to take a piece of paper from the box. Show both representatives the information on the paper.
Next, ask the representatives to go back to their teams. Simultaneously, each representative draws the learning point for their own team to guess. Give a strict time limit of 60 seconds. Award one point to the team(s) correctly guessing the answer within the time limit. You can vary this by awarding a bonus point to the team achieving the correct answer first.
Next nominate a different representative from each team and continue with this process until all of the paper scraps have been drawn. This activity seems to work best if limited to between eight and ten rounds.
Keep a tally of the points scored. The team scoring the highest points by the end of the game is the winner. You may want to consider giving a small prize to the winning team.
You are free to play the game over as many rounds as you choose although around ten rounds seems to work best.
