"Having used the excellent "Colourblind" game very successfully for some years, I bought Signlines from Future Factory. I am just as impressed by this game, which can be used with larger teams to explore many areas around team working, communication and problem-solving, whilst having some fun as well. I would recommend this game to anyone working in team development. Future Factory offer consistently innovative and thought provoking training resources, and their customer service is brilliant.

Angus Council ran an intensive Course for teachers called “Leadership & Management” last year. I attended this two day course and one of the activities we did was “Colourblind” produced by future factory ltd. Two groups of ten teachers competed against each other to solve the problem. It was certainly one of the highlights of the two days! The activity was really enlightening as we discovered who were leaders, who sat quiet, who was helpful, who was listening, who was arguing and as a result, who were effective communicators. It was great fun and at the time, I decided it would be a really good tool to use with our senior pupils at
This was possibly the best lesson I have had with an S5 SE class who have not really ‘gelled’ so far. I think they finally did in this game.

We have used the Colour Blind materials in a training activity designed so participants experience the many challenges of communication, especially multi-culturally. I have found the activity to be very effective around the world, and would recommend the use of the materials in similar situations.

Using “supply chain” with teams has proved a useful, fun way to enable teams to see how their communication methods can be enhanced both within the team and the wider organisation.
The use of supply chain for teams who work closely together has been of great benefit in conveying how easy it is to isolate individuals if lines of communication are closed.
The different configurations are really useful if you know a team are having communication problems as you can use a configuration that portrays the problem and allow them to find new ways of thinking about the problem.
By firstly taking a team through the game using the rules provided, discussing this and then allowing them to repeat the process without anyone breaking the chain, allows the team to work through the issues themselves and to find new ways of enhancing team communication.
