Brain teasers and puzzles for team building events
We have a range of brain teasers and puzzles.
We usually give teams a selection of these and invite them to solve them as they rotate around a selection of activities during a day.
The results are then used in the event of a tie, so the team's effort can be extremely important.
Some team members are more suited to mental challenges, so this gives another angle to a day to ensure that as many team members as possible are appealed to.
Here are some examples of brain teasers, puzzles and dingbats.

52 C in a P
200 for PG
These are the popular puzzles that you will find in the daily newspapers. They differ from Whats because whats form a sentence whereas Dingbats require more lateral thinking and there will not always be someone in a team who is naturally adept at this. Here are some good examples of Dingbats:-
These puzzles are only part of an event. As with any element of a successful day balance is the key. Too many puzzles would be dull, but adding a few to a varied day can add an extra dimension to ensure that as many interests as possible are catered for.
