Game description

Dispersed information, incomplete knowlegde about the solution, organizational chaos make this simple activity apparently unsolvable at the beginning.

Participants’ task in Patterns is to establish a code which results from a pattern they have to assemble first. All the elements to assemble it are dispersed among participants.

Each participant receives a number of cards with a unique pattern. Each element fits into a specific place on the board. There is only one way in which the pattern can be assembled correctly. Participants cannot show or exchange their cards – they must rely only on verbal communication to find the solution.

The game conducted online

Each participant receives virtually a card that no one else can see.

On a shared screen all participants see a common board on which they have to place their cards and create a given pattern.

At the end the team conveys to the trainer the code that determines the correct match of the cards with numbered squares on the board.
