#4 Indoor Olympics

Select at least 10 different indoor games and sports and then over a 12 or even 24 hour period the team play each of the games in succession, with the winner of each awarded a ‘gold medal’ and points towards their overall total. Games can include table tennis, chess, board games (Operation is ideal) but in truth, you can pick any games you like.

An ideal evening if your group A) Loves cooking and/or B) Love eating. Everyone needs to cook, and you could split the group into teams.

This can be done in one evening or over more than one.

#7 Create a Cocktail

Following on from eating, we now move to the cocktails. Each person, or team, has the task of creating a unique cocktail, and rather than guessing what they are, the others must drink them and select which cocktail they like best. This is better if you do not reveal who made which cocktail.
