A step-by-step guide to play the game


Split the group in pairs. One player will be A, the other player will be B. Players A and B of each pair will face each other.


Player A will now start talking about his weekend to player B: how it was, what he did, with whom,... Player B will listen, but he will do so while bending forward (head & shoulders down, not making eye-contact). 


Reverse the roles: now player B will talk about his weekend to player A, while player A is bending forward.


Reflect on the exercise: How did you feel when you were doing the talking/listening? Did you try to make contact in a different way (by bending down yourself as well, for example)? How important is eye-contact in a conversation, according to you? How comfortable are you with making eye-contact? etc.
