The resounding success of "Coffee Talk" was answered with "Coffee Talk 2!" The same intimate and interactive team-building game you have come to love with all new questions! Same stellar impact you expect and a great team building activity for your next retreat!
This game is an absolute blast to play with a team that is between 4 and 14 members. It is easy to learn to play, you won’t break a sweat, doesn’t take any special skills, cooperative in nature, and one of the best ways to get people talking with each other.
The team building game is based on the table game “quarters” where one individual bounces a quarter off the table and if it lands in the plate that is sitting on the table the group must perform a task, in our case answer a question from one of the six stacks of questions. Teams get to know each other easily as dialogue quickly opens up about questions like, “Would you rather, be the lead singer for an ABBA or AC/DC cover band?” And, which would you rather do and why “Be Darth Vader or Luke Skywalker?” With over 300 important questions like that – this game is a great way to open dialogue and get to know your team a bit better.
Full game includes: hand painted pizza plate, painted bottle caps, bag, quarter, cards, score sheet, rules, all in a pizza box!
This is definitely a great tool for any manager or trainer to have in their toolbox for an upcoming meeting, retreat or training event.
