The Activity

Fun, revealing, energising! A short, sharp team bonding activity suitable for all levels.

Can your team win Gold? Start with 20 questions on the Olympics. Answer these and receive two sets of cards; one containing clues, one containing names. Use the clues to sort and match the cards until you have paired and eliminated all except one - bearing the name of a mythical city that will host the Olympics. This task has pitfalls so the better you organise yourselves the sooner you’ll correctly identify the city! Finally, design an advertising poster for the host city which depicts a brand new Olympic sport.

The questions, the city and the poster are all scored to decide which team wins the gold medals!

Often used as a starter activity, all sorts of skills are required and all against a tight deadline! Relax groups and promote team bonding with this light-hearted, fast-paced team-task that needs lots of different skills.
