Trust Games
blindfold trust

Split your group into teams of four and give each team a base. Each team nominates a person to be blindfolded. On the floor in the room, there are pieces of card in various colours.
Red is worth 10 points, yellow is worth 20 points and blue is worth 50 points. The rest of the gruop must remain in the base while they guide their blindfolded person to the pieces of card, most groups would choose to guide their person to the blue card first.
After the blindfolded person has picked up one piece of card he must return to his gruops base, drop off the card and go out and collect more.
The games relies heavily on the blindfolded person trusting his group to guide him sefely!

Reds and Blues

The object of the game is to get the highest score possible and not to beat the opposing team. This must be stressed beforehand to each team.part of the game includes negotiation, and each team must trust the other team to play fair!

You split the group into two teams put into separate rooms where they cannot talk together.
They have to pick either red or blue.
If both pick blue each team gets 3 points.
If one picks red and the other blue then the red team gets 6 points and the blue get 0.
If both pick red then both teams loses 3 points.
Once each team has chosen then they are told what the other team has chosen.

Three rounds are played like this then 1 person from each team is picked as a negotiator to agree with the other team for the next three rounds. The teams do not have to stick to this agreement.
After a further 3 rounds then the negotiators meet again to agree for the next three.
And once more before the final round.
The final round is worth 10 times the score and the one before that 5 times the score.
this game was used on a training course and it was to demonstrate WIN/WIN situations but the main issue that came out of it was one of trust. I am afraid I was on the team that changed to red on the last but one go because we did not trust the other team. Beware, because of this we spent the rest of the day trying to regain the trust of the members of the other team.
