The BEST Game--A Team Builder

Many of us have been in school for weeks, while some are just beginning.

Regardless of the amount of time you have spent with your students.....there is always room for team building! :)

One of my favorite team building games to play is called The Best Game.  How great is that title??  I mean the title alone should tell you that you need to play it!

I have played this game with kids AND adults---and everyone always has a great time! The purpose of this game is for students (or adults) to get to know one another and showcase completely random talents and skills.

Here's a quick snapshot of how to play the game. Keep reading for tips and tricks on how to play the game and how to get the game delivered straight to your inbox!

I always pass out the category cards to the teams and let them collaboratively decide who gets what card--this is a great way to get kids talking and becoming a "team."  Side note: Please ignore my ugly index cards....I ran out of time to cut out cute category cards. Ha!

Here is one of the category competitions in action.....It was "The Farthest.....to throw a paper airplane."  

If you are looking for a great game to get kids talking, working as a team and having fun......then The BEST Game is the game for you!

Play it....you won't regret it!


  1. This sounds like a ton of fun and a great team-building activity for our team, even in the second week of school. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Sounds great! But I am wondering how you do this with groups of 4-5 seeing as though there are 15 different category cards. Can you please explain that.

    1. I am wondering the same thing. Do you pre-select 5 category cards to use for everyone?
