The donkey game is a group dynamics game for an arbitrary number of players from about 10 on.
No equipment is required to play that game.
The players are split in two groups. One group (probably the larger group) represent stubborn donkeys. They do not want to obey the orders of the other other group; their task is to move the donkeys. They may not use any force, but have to find out what kind of "trigger" makes the donkey move. Therefore, each donkey gets his individual task from the referees:
- polite begging
- saying "please"
- a clap on the shoulder
- taking the donkey's arm
- etc. - be creative!
A donkey only starts to move when his individual method of persuasion is used.
