Across a field of grass, sand, or artificial turf, line up 100 participants shoulder to shoulder, stick a baton in their hand, and a red coob at their feet. Now, 25-feet across, line up another 100 soldiers, and stand 100 blue coob-blocks along their baseline. The stage is set for a teambuilder battle you’ll never forget. One at a time, each player pitches their baton, trying to topple the block directly across. Each time a block falls and is removed out of play, every co-worker cheers. Miss it and you get booed. Teams take turns until one side successfully topples all of their opponents’ blocks and wins..
