Indoor Team Building Game Show -
Brains, Brawn & Bucks
Brains, Brawn & Bucks is one of our flagship team building programmes which has become extremely popular since its debut in 2004. It has since proved to be an ideal indoor team building game for groups who do not have the luxury of traveling out of the hotel or ballroom for outdoor programmes.
The objective of the game is to accumulate as much prize money as possible (game money) by answering questions correctly as a team. The questions are either answered by writing the correct answers on the team answer board or representatives may have to be nominated to participate in activites based questions.
Adapted from Dr. Howard Gardner's research on Multiple Intelligences*, Brains Brawn & Bucks tests participants' intellectual and physical ability from various angles, including (but not limited to) topics like general knowledge, mathematics, logical thinking and creative thinking. We have also included other areas of "intellignces" like appreciation of fine arts, stretching one's physical abilities like sense of smell & working as a team.
Though it may be considered a "thinking game" This indoor game show has been popular with both young and senior participants from various backgrounds, some of them include government scholars from Singapore, doctors, senior & management level executives, as well as customer service staff from consturction industry & technical staff from the media industry.
This proves another point - people at all levels enjoy thinking and solving problems and more importantly, get recognised and rewarded for thier efforts.
At the end of the session, participants always realise this truth - that "more hands make light work" or as the Chinese sayings goes, "three average joes can team up to become a genius".
Some participants may get to see a different side of their colleagues, while others realise that when working as a team, recognising the "intelligences" of our team mates and trusting them to make the right decisions for the teams will help save valuable time and effort.
Other values that participants have learnt through the game include: proper communication, coordination, patience, recognition & compromise.

*In 1983, Dr. Howard Gardner wrote a booking titled, "Frames of Mind - The Theory of Multiple Intelligences" - in it he listed several forms of intelligences that were previously ignored. Two of those that intridgued us are inter-personal intelligence and bodily/ spatial intelligences. We have tried to illustrate these through this programme, along with other forms of "intelligences" that we find constitute as talent or intelligence.
