It involves laying the tiles down in such a way as to form a continuous looping pathway. It can also be played competitively with two players. Each player needs a whole set of the tiles so two sets are provided in different colours.

Group Balance – Write some large numbers on a set of cards and shuffle them. Gather the children together and explain that the first number is the number of people in a group and the second number is the number of hands or feet to be touching the floor. The group then gathers and works out how to balance with the number given. Smaller groups can just use the second number.
Link: Leprosy affects the feeling in your limbs; so lepers may need to work together to do tasks.
