Games to demonstrate thinking outside the box. Main game involves teamwork - grouping people in pairs. Each end of a string is tied to a persons wrists - and one of those strings goes through the loop created by the other persons body, arms, and string between their wrists. the game is to find a way to separate from each other without untying, breaking the strings or taking them off/on your wrists.. Requires a somewhat creative solution. A variation on connecting the dots in a box by going outside the box.
