Negotiation Game

November 17, 2007 by Amy Tolmie

A simple interactive game that works with a wide range of age groups in either the classroom or a group. It's a useful way into topics like conflict, values and relationships.

The game works by participants pairing up and deciding how an imaginary 100 points will be split between them. In doing so, they can only split the 100 points in factors of 10 (100:0, 90:10, 80:20, 70:30, 60:40) but they cannot choose 50:50. In other words, one will have to get more points than the other. They have to agree how the points will be split and they cannot finish the 'negotiation' until that agreement is reached.
