Blitz Games: Banana Surgery

You will need:

  • banana for each team
  • plastic knives
  • pins, needles, tape etc. for each team

How to win:

be the team that reconstructs your banana the best

How to play:

This can either be played as an upfront game, or if you have a smaller group, you can have everyone play.

Have a team peel and cut up a banana into equal parts. (Don’t tell them what comes next until they’re done.) Then tell them they must put the banana back together using pins, needles, tape, or whatever. The team with the best reconstructed banana wins.

If you do this with a big group, use a video feed to a big screen and time the “surgery” so it doesn’t drag.

The point: Things taken apart (relationships, reputations, etc.) aren’t as easily put back together.
