Activity Overview

Super Simbols is a large-scale version of our popular Simbols activity, with some changes to the complexity and format to allow a group of up to 150 people to participate (6 working teams, each with up to 25 people).  It requires a large conference room setting, or an outdoor space, in which the 6 working teams can work independently but communicate with each other when necessary.

Super Simbols needs at least one hour of dedicated activity time, excluding any review or debriefing time. Attempts to reduce this time consistently prove unsuccessful: in order to work to a high standard and within the operating guidelines given, a full 60 minutes of activity is needed, especially with a very large group (>50 people).

Super Simbols tiles have a standard abstract pattern on their ‘activity’ side and are supplied as standard on the reverse side with part of the image of a group of trees.  It can also be customised with a bespoke image and/or text on the reverse of each tile, making it an ideal activity to display a corporate message, image or logo (when assembled correctly!). We can advise on the type of imagery that works well on the reverse side of the tiles.

Learning Objectives

  • • Set up and manage an effective communication system that everyone understands and can use efficiently.
  • • Effective Communication skills
  • • Understand that language and communication is culturally specific
  • • Sharing and organising information
  • • Team Building and collaboration between teams
  • • Strategic Thinking
  • • Change management
  • • Time management


Super Simbols at first focuses on:

  • • Internal team communication (especially the skills of listening and clarifying)
  • • Sharing and organising information
  • • Working within the discipline of a set of ‘rules’
  • • Achieving shared meaning


It then becomes a cross-team dialogue, in which a standard ‘operating process’ is agreed and rehearsed.

The final element is a high-pressure time-trial in which the plan is implemented under controlled conditions and must succeed at the first attempt as the project ‘goes live’.

Activity Description

Activity Contents:

150x printed tiles, Full facilitation note, 10x 15 grid with pockets to include tiles, 4x Karabiners, 2x Collapsible stiffeners and rope

Package Weight: 7.1kg

All 150x tiles need to be distributed between all the delegates who will take part. The cards need to be pre-sorted into each of the 6x working groups before the participants arrive. It is easiest to do this by placing all cards correctly into the hanger, then removing one working group (a complete colour group is 5x5 tiles) at a time. 6x working groups are ideal but the exercise can

be completed with fewer working groups provided each 5x5 colour group is entirely allocated to one working group. Then simply deal out all the tiles in each 5x5 grid randomly to delegates in each working group, ensuring each participant gets at least one tile. In the grid, there is only one correct position for each tile. When correctly located, adjacent edges of any 2 tiles will have matching symbols. This rule applies to top/bottom edges and right/left edges. This rule is always consistent.

The participants cannot show, pass or exchange tiles, and must only use verbal communication between participants and teams must work together and place all 150 tiles in a unique position in the assembly grid under time trial.
