Team building is also a benefit of this game, since every one need to work together in order to finish their task as quickly as possible. When people don’t communicate, they will notice they’re not the winners and they will try harder the next time.
Before you can play, the leader of the game will walk around and hand everyone a card from a deck of cards. Use all the cards except for the jokers.
Give each person a card until all the cards are gone. Tou can collect the cards after each round, but you don’t have to.
Gather everyone to the middle of the area you are playing in with them holding their cards so everyone can read them. Then the leader will call out an arrangement (almost like a poker hand). The people will then find the cards they need to make that arrangement / hand as fast as they can…
