Large Group Games That Work
A collection of the most successful ice-breakers, energizers, interactive games and team events for large groups. Most activities require few if any props and are guaranteed to keep 30, 50 or 100s of people active and having fun at the same time.
Count Me In features hundreds of sure-fire, high-energy, interactive, leave-them-wanting-for-more activities for BIG (and small) groups.
If you regularly work with numbers in excess of 30 people – indeed, up to several hundred people – you will learn a ton of brilliant activity ideas that will keep them – ALL of them – occupied and interacting at the same time, and coming back for more.
You’ll also learn some of the most useful and practical leadership tips that will squeeze more than just fun out of your programs and make you look like an expert.
