Sticky Situation - Revisited with Cray Paper

A variation of Sticky Situation;
While facilitating the University of Rochester New York MBA students orientation (150 students at a time) I wanted to lead sticky situation to illustrate team work, as well as solutions to problems when working within a boundary (guideline, rubric) that is not defined by the group.

While traveling to Rochester NY I stopped at a party city. While wandering the isles thinking how can I lead Sticky Situation with 150 MBA college students indoor teambuilding program. I saw the cray paper and thought "This is IT!" The activity went well and the content delivery piece of working within pre-defined boundaries developed a rich discussion.

What variations of ideas and activities have you used lately? How else could I have accomplished the same goal?
