How to Play
Divide into teams of 3-6 players per team.
You will need at least 2 teams to play.
Place a bucket in the middle of the room.
Scatter crushed colored papers around the room.
– Assign a different color for each team.
– 3 pieces per team.
Blindfold one player from each team.
Their role is to pick up the team’s colored papers (one at a time) and place them in the bucket.
The rest of the team must shout instructions to guide their blindfolded teammate while standing at the sides of the room. They should also try to distract and confuse the other blindfolded players.
The first team to retrieve all their colored papers wins.
