Problem Solving Game - A Game To Practice Problem Solving, Creatively

Problem Solving game: Envelope

This game can be played with a group of 5 to 10 people. If you have a to deal with, you can divide the into smaller groups to play. Each group of five has a complementary group of five more people on whom the task will be performed.

Say there are two groups of five. One group is called the 'envelope' and the other group is called the 'message'.

The task is for 'envelope'. They are expected to transport members of the message group from a predesignated point A to a predesignated point B without touching them.

They have the option of transporting the members of the message group either altogether, or in ones/twos/threes. However, each time they have to think of a different solution

One solution is that the envelope group asks the message group to separate three members from the group and ask them to stand apart in a huddle. The envelope group then forms a circle around them and asks the the huddle to move with the circle as the circle moves from point A to point B
