A combined test of communication skills, collaboration and performance as teams work together to make puppets perform seemingly simple human actions.
What is Puppet Masters?
You’ve probably seen 10-metre puppets on the sidelines of football matches or parading centre stage at the Olympics.. Puppet Masters is a team bonding game that gives your team the opportunity to experience the creativity and skills required to make these giant puppet appear human.
Teams are given props and guidelines and must divide into sub-teams in order to tackle the construction of each element of their puppet. They must assemble and decorate their puppet. Teams must stand their puppets up, act as it’s controllers and work to perform simple human actions. To succeed, team members become the ‘nerve centre’ controlling a myriad of movements as they walk down the “puppet catwalk” to a song of their choice.
