Style:  Communication, Chaos

Time:  15 mins

Players:  10 - 50


Players are launching balloons that are sailing away across the sky and falling onto the dangerous terrain.  The goal is to see how many can be collectively kept flying simultaneously.

As more people play it becomes increasingly harder to keep all the balloons afloat and more and more communication and coordination is needed to get the right people to the right place to refuel their balloons in time.

Balloons is an ideal opening game played in teams of 5-10 players as it is an incredibly simple, lively and humorous game that breaks the ice.  But teams that first watch and plan how they are going to communicate and coordinate their play consistently perform better.
