Last One Standing
This activity helps young people develop their understanding of harm reduction and gain better awareness of how they can stay safer if they decide to gamble.
Ask all participants to stand up in a circle.
Explain that, in turn, everyone will have to say something that a person could do in order to stay safer when gambling (i.e. minimising risk and harm if deciding to still engage in gambling activities). If a person can’t think of a suggestion, says something inappropriate or repeats something that had already been said, then they have to sit down.
Go round the circle again and again, until only one person is left standing (the winner).
Summarise the key harm-reduction points that were mentioned during the game.
