The Amoeba race is a fun game that emphasizes physical activity, and much simpler to organize than the rope challenge.
The Amoeba race, as the name implies takes the basic concept of a cell. The team members divide into three, replicating a cell protoplasm, cell wall, and nucleus. The group of protoplasm sticks close to each other and moves. The cell wall consists of people who surround the protoplasm group, facing outward, linking elbows. The nucleus is someone who sits on the shoulder of some of the protoplasm, and directs the group.
The challenge lies in moving across a field or corridor while retaining this structure.
Formation of two or more such amoebas results in an amoeba race.
This exercise promotes cooperation and synchronization among team members. This game however also requires close physical interaction with the team members, which not all members may fancy.
