Group Activities, Games, and Challenges for Adults?
(who don't respond well to hokey or woo-woo stuff)
That require using teamwork and brainwork?
And don't need a lot of money or materials?

I'm working with adults who are involuntarily part of my program, and who spend alot their time with us in therapeutic/psychoeducational groups, that they dislike for the most part.
To counter all that, my groups tend to be more action/fun oriented.
Some ideas that have gone over well:
Survival Ranking Debate
Spaghetti & Marshmallow Tower
Egg Drop Competition
Say What You See Mind Game Puzzles
All the materials have been coming out of pocket, so I'm unlikely to do some of the fun, longer, and more complex building challenges. I'm also not doing this to explain the science behind it, so activities that are mainly experiments aren't really what I'm after. Stuff like camp games/contests that are appropriate for adults would be better.
My groups last around an hour, so everything also needs to be able to fit in that time or be easily broken into parts to do on different days.
So, ideas? :)
