Minefield

We will lay out several different obstacles on the ground, then pair up employees and make one person on each team wear a blindfold. The object here is to have the employee who can see verbally direct the blindfolded employee across the minefield to the other side without running into anything. The blindfolded employee cannot talk.

Encore Scavenger Hunt
