A Game of Quick Reflexes and Passing the Pulse

Passing the Pulse is a great way to break the ice, it’s a fast-paced action game, especially if you have a large group of people. Two long lines of humans resemble a fast moving electric current!

You need to form two teams of equal size. The easiest way to do this is probably to have each player pair off with another person.

When you’ve divided the group evenly, have each team member face the same direction, and have each team facing each other. Instruct each team to hold hands to form two long human chains.

At the end of the two lines, place a chair with a small object (e.g. a tennis ball) on it.

To play, have the two players at the front of the line watch the facilitator. Have everyone else close their eyes and face downward.

Instruct everyone to be silent.

For each round, the facilitator does the following: flip a coin and quietly show it only to the first two players at the front of each team. Whenever the coin shows “Heads,” the two people at the front of the line must squeeze the hand of the next person in line as quickly as possible.

Whenever that player’s hand gets squeezed, he or she quickly continues to “pass the electric current” by squeezing the next person’s hand, and so on. As the “electric current” transfers along the line, the goal of the game is to be the first team to grab the object (the ball) on the chair.

If heads was flipped and a team successfully grabs the ball, that team wins a point. On the other hand, if the team grabs the ball but heads was not flipped, then the point goes to the other team.

After each coin flip, wait several seconds and then flip again. For a short game, the winner is the first team to score 10 points.
