For the best results, choose an open space and scatter furniture and objects around the room. This is your course or field of play for teams. Split teams in group of 3 or 4 members. Assign numbers to each member of the group. Select a random number and instruct each team to start at the end of the room. The selected number is the member that will be blindfolded. The sighted members of the team must guide the blindfolded member to the opposite end of the room. When each team reaches the other end of the room, the group members switch roles and repeat activity.
