Cross-Boarders – Dealing With People

Some games never grow old. Remember the classic game of Monopoly? That is one age-old game that has spanned across generations and into many variations for young, old and cartoon enthusiasts, and even a Singapore version! Well, this shows that board games are highly favored by children and adults alike.

As team building specialists, we believe in the use of games, and in our years of “playing”, we discovered a highly interesting board game. While we were playing it leisurely, we realized its potential as a team building game, as it comprises of different elements and many twists! The game is similar to Monopoly in that it’s a board game, otherwise, the whole game requires a lot more energy, wit and movement. It involves closing of deals, and a lot of interaction among the players involved to get that deal that you want. The twist is that anyone, at any point, can  take over in leading that round, and that changes the dynamics suddenly, introducing lots of thrills and bargaining, and laughter! This board game encourages players to form alliances, or allow them to bargain aggressively (after all, it’s just a game!), as each player strives to bring in the highest earnings from the deals.

  • taking initiative to get involved
  • taking care of less vocal colleagues
  • being fair in our dealings
  • to give and take in a team environment
  • the importance of building trust

The game usually starts off with everyone seated, but about 5 minutes into the game, it is normal for the players to be standing up (possibly, to show more determination to win the deals), and walking around.
