How it works

The team are presented with a set of 30 shapes made up of six sub sets. All of the pieces in each set have the same external shape, however each peice in the set has a different internal cut out shape. Before the activity starts the facilitator removes two of the pieces. The teams task is to work out which two pieces have been removed - whilst blindfolded.

Participants may talk as much as they want but each individual has access to only a few of the shapes.
