Blind Hand Search*

Participants are divided into pairs and they close their eyes. Each pair shakes hands; after shaking hands they should let go of their partner’s hand and walk around the room. At the signal, each participant has to find and recognise their pair and shake hands again. When the pairs find each other, they can open their eyes. It is important to note that the game is played in silence.
