The activity I enjoy most:


Simbols Description

Simbols is one of our most popular activies along with Colourblind. Simbols involves quite a large discussion phase (typically around 45 minutes) which is followed by a high intensity 'placement' phase were participants need to come together to form a consensus and find a solution in as little as two minutes. It's great fun.
