Design for Animals.
This is a game I came up with in 2011 when I was writing my master’s thesis and exploring ways of creative collaboration. Since then I played it with fellow students, friends at dinner, work colleagues, classes I was teaching at and it brought a lot joy to all the teams I played with so far and I got really great feedback.
The game takes 45 minutes to one hour for a group size of 6-10 and depends on how many people is involved. If there is a bigger group like a class of 40, you can get them into smaller groups of 8 which will need to present to their individual groups rather than everyone.
First 10-15 minutes is the introduction to the game and set up. The drawing usually takes around 20 to 30 minutes. Presentation takes around 15 minutes. You may want play the game as an ice-breaker activity at the very beginning or at the very end in a team activity day.
