How does the Farmers team building game work?

The Farmers communication exercise is a logical problem-solver. A set of 30 information cards is distributed amongst team members.  Team members need to not only share information effectively, but they must quickly put in place a logical process, in order to fill in the blanks and complete the task.  

Clear communication and leadership are essential for success, as many people jump straight into trying to solve the problem ‘their way’, without an agreed way of moving forwards first, or a way of hearing and understanding all of the information available.  

You can also split the team into multiple sub-groups, to add complexity; simulating the distribution of information within organisations and departments.  This exercise also lends itself well to selection & assessment centres, where clear facilitative leadership is required.
