This drama warm-up is part of a collection of 40 classic drama games found on Drama Notebook.

Drama Game Mine FieldFill the playing space with random obstacles such as turned over chairs, books on the floor. Blindfold one player and have her stand at one end of the playing space. Put one or two other players on the other end of the playing space. They will ‘guide’ her through the mine field by verbally calling out instructions.

Or try this!

Circle Mine Field

Instead of having just one person calling out instructions, surround the playing area with the other players who issue instructions to the blindfolded person as she moves through the mine field.

Group Mine Field

Split the group into three smaller groups. One group will be the mines. They will be stationary in the playing area. One group will be the soldiers trying to get across the playing field while blindfolded. The third group will be the guides. They will stand at the far end of the playing space calling out orders, attempting to lead the player to safety.
