Build It, Bounce It, Pass It, Solve It
Collaboration, coordination and a desire for fun interaction, are the keys to success in the Tabletop Challenge. This event does not require much space or much movement. Members simply circle up around their table to coordinate ideas, items and action to build it, bounce it, pass it or solve it faster than the table next door. It requires all hands from all members as teams vie for the tabletop trophy. Friendly competition is the name of the game as all teams share the energy and excitement in Tabletop Challenge.
Tabletop Challenge begins with a fun set of warm-up games to build camaraderie throughout the group. We then assign teams of 6 to 10 members; alternatively, we’ll work from your submitted roster. Each team creates its team name and cheer.
Then it’s off to your game table, and let the challenges begin. It’s all about teamwork, with the best teamwork earning the best score.
Welcome, introductions, and overview of the day
Icebreakers and team formation
Table Top Game rotations
Award ceremony: scores and recognitions
Challenge: Using a pencil, each member takes turns stacking large hardware nuts to build the tallest self-supporting tower. Steady hands are a must, especially if participants are blindfolded. To amp up the challenge, build two towers connecting each layer with a pencil through the nuts.
Take Aways: Communication, patience
Army Men Shoot Out
Challenge: Relive the childhood days of playing with army men as each team member snaps rubber bands to knock down as many army men as possible. Sounds easy until participants realize rubber bands are difficult to aim from four feet away.
Take Aways: Patience, agility
Table Top Gutter Ball
Challenge: Teams compete in a relay to move balls from start to finish as quickly as possible using unusual “gutter” tools. Each member has a tool to transfer the ball to the next person. Everyone gets a chance to transfer the ball before any participant can do it a second time. Team members who drop the ball must start again.
Take Aways: Patience, communication
Challenge: To move your stack of five blocks from one location to another, following specific rules, as quickly as possible. There is only one way to solve this puzzle. The first challenge is to figure out the sequence of moves. The second challenge is for teammates to remember whose turn it is to move. Each member is assigned a block to move. Move yours out of sequence, and you must start again from the beginning.
Take Aways: Communication, awareness of others
Challenge: Everyone takes turns scoring points in this team challenge. Teammates use cups to catch ping-pong balls bounced by other team members. When a ball is caught, it remains in the cup, and you stack another cup on top. It’s hard enough to catch the ball, that’s only beginning. Wait until the cup stack grows and becomes an awkward swing tower that is difficult to manage. Tallest tower wins.
Takeaway: Coordination and communication.
These are examples of activities that are similar to those that may be used for your group. When we learn more about your team, we will select and design the ideal activities for you.
