"FISHING IN THE DARK"

The best training games on the Web

Fishing in the Dark is a very engaging activity that leaves teams with loads to talk about! Working in different capacities, team members (some of whom are blindfolded) attempt to retrieve numerous objects from a no-go area.  This activity challenges teams to consider how, even when working on the same project, team members often approach a task from different perspectives. It also examines how a team shares information. Issues of accountability and responsibility for task completion also come to the fore.
