Another group of participants who could probably join team building game is the wine lovers. They are not so special at all because of special needs. In fact, they are just an ordinary group of people who share a common interest – wine. They could be professionals, managers and senior citizens who share the passion for wine. Team building games for this group should therefore be inclined towards their common interest. It is a good thing that there are team building games for wine lovers which include the following:
Wine Trivia Games
From the history to the name of the famous wines, to anything at wine, to making of wine, these could be topics for the wine trivia games. In this game, the participants are grouped into different teams. The objective is basically to acquire the most points by answering correctly the questions asked. Of course all the questions that will be asked will be all about wine which is both exciting and fun for the participants. Not only will they enjoy competing with other teams, they’ll have additional information learned because there are a lot of things that they still don’t know about wine and learn that information through the questions given. After all the questions have been read, the group with the most points will of course win the game.
Blindfolded Wine Tasting
This is another exciting game specifically designed for wine lovers. In this game, a table is prepared with sets of goblets filled with different wine. The objective of this game is to correctly identify the wine and gain the most points. Each team will gain a point when they correctly identify a wine. After the facilitator divides the participants into teams, the team will select a representative. The first representative of each team will then be blindfolded and is asked to identify the wine he tasted. If the identifies the wine correctly his team gains a point. The process is repeated until everyone in the team is able to taste a specific wine. The team with the most points gained will win the game.
White or Red Wine
In this game, the participants are first grouped into teams. For each group, they are given many sealed bottles of red or white wine placed in a table near a mini cellar. In the cellar, there is a label for red wine and white wine. The team members in each team will then take turns placing a wine bottle under the correct classification. For every correct bottle placed in the correct group, the team will win a point while being subtracted a point for every wrong bottle placed. They then strategize to get the maximum points that they can and place the wine bottled in the correct classification. Not only will this be a wonderful game for wine lovers, it is a test for their knowledge in wines. For those who haven’t learned this, then this is a good way to gain additional knowledge about red wines and white wines.
This is another fun game for lovers. In this game, the objective is to fill an empty wine bottle with wine using a spoon. Each group is lined up few feet from their empty wine bottle. The first person on the line will fill up a spoon with wine, walk to the empty bottle and pour the wine to the bottle. The small mouth of the wine bottle will make the activity challenging. After the first person pours the wine, he sprints to his line, gives the spoon to the first person on the line and goes to the end of the line. The process is repeated until everyone takes a turn pouring wine in the empty wine bottle. After the time limit has expired, the facilitator will measure which wine bottle has the highest level of wine quantity will win. The owner of the bottle with most amount of wine will win the game.
Building a Cork Tower
This is similar to the tallest tower game but instead of straws and masking tape, they use a different material. Each team is given used wine corks as well as sticks to build a tower. Under limited time, each group must then construct the most stable and the tallest tower that they could make using the materials given. Through careful planning and team work, the group under time pressure will have to maximize what resources that they have. At the end of the allotted time, the finished towers are placed next to each other and the facilitator will determine which tower is the tallest. The group with the tallest tower will win the game.
Wine lovers would surely enjoy the games discussed above. The good thing about the games is that each team get bonded in each activity and at the end of the day you should be able to get the participants closer to each other. Aside from the learning that they have acquired, they get to bond over something that they have and that is the love for wine.
