The Big Picture

A slice of Activity

Playing the game

This game can be played in a number of ways but traditionally, individuals are split into smaller teams. Each of these teams is responsible for painting a small segment of The Big Picture. Since nobody knows what the final image will look like, teams have to ensure that they work together to achieve their goal. Teams collect brushes and paint a diagram outlining their individual canvas. They then set out, as a team, to mix and match colours in order to paint the canvas which eventually become a part of The Big Picture.

Due to this restriction, teams must adopt a cooperative strategy instead of conventionally competing with each other. The Big Picture can be anything related to the company. Efficient coordination is required among different teams in order for each of the canvases to fit perfectly. On completion, each team’s canvas is put together and framed in order to get ready for the big reveal. This game is ideal for a corporate day outing or a family outing in Bangalore.
