How to play Triangle of Life?
- The players are divided into three teams.
- Each team is supplied with essential survival items like food, water and with a radio to communicate with each other.
- The idea is that the island are supposed to be too far apart so that the players cannot simply jump fro their places.
- The islands can not be moved from their places.
- Only certain number of objects, say 5 are allowed to be kept in the island.
- The transfer of food and other stuff should be strictly limited to ropes, no throwing is allowed.
Generally, splitting the items between mid-points of the island and the island and asking the teams to work out how to get what they need to each island is advised.
- This team activity helps to build up cooperation between the players.
- The communication skills are also significantly improved.
- There is plenty of room for innovation on how to transfer the supplies.
