Though it has been used at parties before, this game is a fun and entertaining way for everyone to become acquainted with each other quickly and without the process feeling forced.
Before everyone walks into the room, you fill out quite a few cards with the names of famous historical people, celebrities, or anyone else who will be known and recognizable by the mere mention of their name.
If you need help doing this, simply search the Internet to give you a few ideas on whose names you should use. Then, as everyone enters, you pin the card to their back, and let everyone know that they should, under not circumstances tell the person whose name is on their card. Each of the members of your group will mingle around the room and ask each of the other people one yes or no question to try to figure out the name on their back. The can only remove the card once they’ve guessed correctly.
This is a great idea, because everyone will get the chance to speak with everyone else on an individual basis, rather than in a group setting. If you feel that certain members of your group are shy or might tend to avoid social situations, it’s a fantastic way to ease them in to speaking with others.
This ice breaker game is ideal for groups of children and adults, as the names used on the cards can be adjusted for each age range. You can use it for a first day of school or a first day at work, as well as any social event you might have in mind, such as a bridal shower or birthday party.
