The Symbol Game is a card-based exercise designed to improve group problem solving and communication.

It will show you the importance of setting clear objectives, based on a sound analysis and understanding of the problem… And it’s a lot of fun!

This is one of three Games Without Frontiers sessions across Welcome week, each offering a different game and a chance to learn different skills, and meet new people.  Why not try them all?
