The Castle game is a Group dynamics game for more than ten participants.


There is no equipment required for this game.


The participants are split up into two groups. One group has to leave the room. The other group tries to form a "castle" by standing in a circle as close as possible. Then, they decide on one action how the attacker might enter the castle. This may be one single word, such as "please" or an action, as for instance tickling or giving a team member of the castle a massage. After deciding on that, the group of "attackers" may enter the room again and try to "storm the castle". If they succeed, the roles are changed.
