Mine Field

Guides must lead a blindfolded individual through an obstacle course (mine field), using verbal cues only. Ask the participants to find a partner and decide who will be the guide (they can take turns). Tie a blindfold around the remaining individual and spin him around a couple times to disorient him. The guide must lead the blindfolded individual through the course without stepping on any mines (for example: “take three big steps forward. Take two little steps to the left,” etc.). The guide learns how to be responsible for team-mates while the blindfolded person learns to rely on team-mates.
