The second book by Jim Cain in his ‘The Easy as 1-2-3 Series’ is Rope Games.
Using a finite collection of ropes you can facilitate an infinite variety of icebreaker and teamwork games, as well as trust building activities, in a back-pocket-size book (4.5" x 6"), with lots of photographs and illustrations.
The phrase 'learning the ropes' is as applicable today as it was two hundred years ago. Back then it referred to a new recruit on a sailing vessel learning how to climb and handle the many ropes that operated the ship's sails.
For the purpose of this book, 'learning the ropes' refers to understanding how to facilitate a wide variety of powerful group activities that explore a significant range of topics. Using the rope provided, you can participate in infinite icebreaker and teamwork games, as well as trust building activities and many other puzzles and challenges. This is perfect for camp counsellors, college orientation staff, managers, coaches, wilderness guides, teachers, facilitators, trainers and group leaders of all kinds.
