The participants’ task is to identify elements shapes from the set an guess, which of what colours are missing. The communication processes involved are much more complex and take participants through increasingly sophisticated patterns of communication until the task is achieved. Participants draw on their experience and describe skills to explain to each other the complexities of abstract shapes of the elements they are holding but cannot see (they are blindfolded).
Colourblind was developed in 1991 by Geoff Cox. Since then it has been used worldwide and highly appreciated for its power and versatility.
