  • The More The Merrier:Lead playful activites with large groups - Why, What, How

In the ideal global picture, people laughing and playing together create an experience in common.  Commonalities create connections, the invitation to further relationship. From relationship comes the possibility of understanding, acceptance, and even forgiveness.

The More The Merrier means that, the more players, the merrier it is! When a lot of people play together, individual energies become a synergistic phenomenon and the combined energy of two or more players is greater than the sum of their individual effects.

The More the Merrier means that more players are not an obstacle to play, but something to celebrate. Large group play may not be the answer to world peace, but it could be the kinesthetic catalyst to peace among groups of every size!

"Large groups often represent folks attending a convention, and convention numbers (depending on the type of presentation) can vary from 10 to over 1,000.  If you are responsible for a 30-90 minute presentation at a convention with an audience of near or over 100, recognize that you are not being hired to train or facilitate the group, you are there primarily to entertain (no matter what the flyer says); I call it edutainment.  The best part of this type of scenario is that people want to be entertained, so all you have to do is present a few tried and true large group activities (like the ones in this book), then don't get in the way of their fun."  (Karl Rohnke, Author and Player Extraordinaire)
