An active team-building game for large groups
How To Play Creeping Closer
Select one person from your group to be the captain. They must stand on one side of the playing field (usually just in a room or hall) facing the wall.
The rest of the group must all start with one limb touching the opposite wall. The aim of the game is for one person to touch the captain.
While the captain is facing the wall, everyone can move freely but must remain completely silent. However at any point (of the captain's choosing) the captain may turn around quickly and everyone must freeze completely still. If the captain catches anyone moving, the whole team must return to the starting position.
This is a fantastic team building game as everyone needs to work together and communicate effectively. If one person stuffs up, the whole team gets punished!
Another good variation of this game is splitting the group into two teams that are competing to reach the captain first. Or even letting each player play individually, so if someone gets caught out, they return to the start but the rest of the players may stay where they are.
