A crowd mingling game full of shenanigans where students form groups and create shapes together or are eliminated.


This crowd mingling icebreaker game encourages potentially hilarious shenanigans among your students. Shape-anigans challenge them to form groups the size of a number displayed on-screen and create a shape using their arms, legs, etc. with every member of the group. If the group does not make the shape fast enough or students can't form a group with the correct number, then they're out of the game. Any student that can navigate all 12 rounds with different numbers and shapes wins!

Gameplay info:
This game works in any sized space but may require more creativity from students in smaller spaces. Clear the playing area as best as you can and have students stand in one large group. As each number and shape are displayed on the screen, students will have to form groups the size of that number and create the shape using their arms, legs, etc. Have students sit off to the side if they can't form a group with the correct number of members or if the group cannot create the shape in time.

About this Product
Add an element of difficulty to make the game more challenging and provide more laughs (i.e. a round where students can only use one arm, have to lie on the ground, give students 15 seconds to complete the task, or where students can't be in a group with the same person in consecutive rounds).
