You find a quilt that has two different patterns on both sides. Depending on the size of your group, depends on how large the blanket or quilt.
The goal of the game is to get your group to turn over the blanket completely to the other side without anyone falling off, stepping, off or even touching the floor. IF that happens, they have to start all over again.
I did with with my group 13 students on a queen size quilt. It was funny, and made us work together to find an answer. Most of the students were not even talking to each other at the beginning of our event, but after this game, they sat together and chatted with each other.
The largest group I have seen do this was 20 people!
It was fun, and I suggest it to anyone else as a fun energiser icebreaker.
