friend/enemy

18 Feb

Purpose
fun, social dynamics

Instruction
The participants are told to stand in a circle and each secretly select a friend and an enemy. When the facilitator tells the participants to begin, everybody starts moving.

The purpose for the participants is to get as far away from their enemy as possible and to keep their friend in between themeselves and the enemy.

ending
Small groups will typically form during the exercise and the energizer ends when the facilitator feels that the energy is going down. Typically after a few minutes.

Variation
this exercise can also be used in the character creation proces, where the chosen friend/enemy can be used as ingame relations of a positive/negative orientation. The exercise can also be used after character creation for visualizing cliques in the ingame group.
