Second part was a networking. This time Kaśka Lekka show as a two games.

In first part everyone need to get a pieces of toilet paper (how much they wanted). Next everyone started to tell about their-self so much, how many pieces they had. The most had Marta, about 20.. so she told us about 20 things about her 😉

The goal of this game was shown, that how much you get from society, the same you should give back.

At next game we create two teams and everyone get a sheet of paper with some drawing. We cannot show anyone this, what we see in drawing and only describe what is there. Next we needed to create a story what is in this sheet of papers.

Pictures came from Istvan Banyai and you can see all of theme here: Zoom. The goal of this game was communication and tell other an important information, what helped to set a correct order of pictures 🙂
