Facilitation Notes

This game shows the importance of working as a team and cooperating.

The goal is for each team to finish with a positive score.

Divide your group into teams.

The game has 10 rounds.  For each round, groups must choose a colour – either “Blue” or “Red” without knowing what the other groups have chosen.

The group then wins (or loses) points based on what the other groups chose.

So for example, if 1 group choose Blue, they get 8 points, the groups that chose Red lose 4 points.

There is no talking allowed between groups except during  negotiation periods (after rounds 2, 4, 6 and 8).

In this example there are 6 teams
