Some new communication techniques.


  • 4x pegs per person
  • Cones


  1. Give each player 4 pegs each and ask them to peg them at the bottom of their shirt on their hip.
  2. Mark out an area using cones which players are confined to – about 10m x 10m.
  3. In the 1st round, players must collect as many pegs as possible by stealing them off other players. The player with the most pegs after 2 minutes is victorious.
  4. In the 2nd round, players must try to get rid of their pegs by pegging them to other players. The player with the least pegs after 2 minutes is victorious. If pegs are dropped the player pegging them must pick them up and try again.
  5. In the 3rd round, players must peg each of their 4 pegs to other players and say something they appreciate about that person or some good/positive things about them. Make a point of highlighting this as an opportunity to both give and receive a compliment.
