The shrinking vessel is a typical icebreaker game, which requires a handful of people and a rope/blanket. The idea is, that you're in a situation of standing on a sinking ship. The aim is to remain within the borders of the "ship" as possible. In our case the area of the blanket (or the area encircled by a rope) is the shrinking area, so the shrinking vessel's board. For this you have to bring your creativity and a bit your athletic self on. As you'll be standing very close to each other, and some will sit on your shoulders, it's the perfect game to bond and break the ice between your teammates.
