As is typical within business, the success or failure of this project relies on collaboration and co-operation between rival teams. With this in mind, you’ll have to work with the competing groups around you to ensure that the chain reaction passes successfully from one section of the platform to the others. If your reaction fails during the handover then both teams involved are deemed responsible and points are lost.
Each team will be given a different coloured section of the game and provided with a kit box full of useful materials. This includes dominos, wooden blocks, balls, tape, string and other building materials. How you use the limited resources provided is up to you! To succeed with this activity, your group will have to take stock of your supplies and find innovative solutions to bridge the gaps and keep the reaction moving seamlessly around your section.
Points are awarded for creativity and artistic flair. However, it’s important to ensure that it’s not just a case of style over substance, as each break will cost you valuable points. Having a back-up plan can sometimes save the day, but with limited time and resources available your team will need to decide whether to play it safe or take a more daring route. So, if you’re looking for a unique event activity that is guaranteed to get groups thinking in new ways, collaborating with colleagues and working together to solve a challenge then this activity is the one for you.
Chain Reaction is an indoor activity and can be set up in any venue with sufficient indoor space to accommodate it. The setup time is 1 hour and this activity typically runs for around 2 hours.
As a standalone activity this can accommodate groups of 15 - 250. For greater numbers this could be included as part of a larger activity package.
“We used Events Made Simple for an important team building afternoon. It's a very new team with members located across Europe. Lots of laughing mixed with some serious moments. Even the most sceptical member of the team admitted at the end of the afternoon that he had enjoyed the experience! The team are now enjoying closer collaboration and ideas sharing. Thanks Ben for helping us to get to know one another better and start to develop a closer co-operation for the future.”
