Use this free training game to link together a session/programme and add a little humour.
A trainng game activity that ensures participants on a long programme interact outside of the training room can be downloaded for free from the link at the bottom of this page, or you can follow the notes below.
This game should be played with a group of at least 20 (no maximum size) and can run for up to a few days depending on the size of the group. It is suitable for a long residential event or programme.
Prior to the session, write all the participants names in a list.
Each participant has to assassinate the person below him on the list (and will be assassinated by the person above him on the list).
Provide each participant a small slip of paper with the name of the person they have to assassinate.
To assassinate someone, the assassin has to go up to his target and say, “Bang, Bang you’re dead”. However, if anyone else hears this then the assassin has missed his target and must try again later. If the assassination succeeds, then the target is out of the game and must pass on to his assassin the name of the person who he was trying to assassinate.
This person becomes the assassin’s new target.
Eventually, there will be an outright winner.
It is advisable to make an extra rule that nobody can be assassinated during the session times or other times you do not want to be disturbed.
People who have been assassinated can stay in the game as bodyguards for people still alive.
Use this training game to provide a fun method of ensuring interaction between participants.
