Negotiation Auction Game
In what we call the Negotiation Auction Game a certain value of cash money is placed on auction to a group of players. We suggest a small amount like $10 or possibly $20, however this auction activity works well with anything between $5 up to $100 (we suggest only using a higher amount if those playing are senior management or wealthy individuals).

The aim of the exercise is to then untangle themselves, but nobody is allowed to break contact or let their hands go.Resources:No Props Space Required:Small space either Indoors or Outdoors.
