How the Activity Works
The activity works best in large groups, typically conferences or large workshops which have a host, compere or lead facilitator who is running the day. Obviously, before the activity starts, the host or facilitator needs to explain the rules to all of the participants. We’d also recommend a brief demonstration.
In this activity all of the attendees at the event are competing against the lead facilitator at rock, paper, scissors. The twist though is that instead of using your hands, everyone adopts a body pose for each of the rock, paper or scissors shapes. You can make up whatever shapes you want for this.
The game is played over multiple rounds, until only one person is left standing, and they are crowned the winner.
In each round of the game all of the participants in the room are competing against the host or lead facilitator. The host counts down 3,2,1, then everyone, including the host, adopts a body pose. Anyone who was “beaten” by the host then sits down, and the game is repeated. You keep playing until there is only one person left among the participants. They are the “winner” of the game and they usually receive a token prize.
