An ice breaker game is a great way to help people connect and engage no matter where they are.
These days, there's less opportunity to bond through a quick chat around the water cooler, at the Christmas party, or in the school canteen.
Therefore, you may know the practical stuff such as what time people log on, their favorite zoom background, or how good they are in their role. But do you know what motivates them?
Whether you're working in the same room or thousands of miles away, it's still crucial that teams get to know each other as people. Creating and maintaining these relationships helps build trust, makes it easier to work together, and generates a happy working environment.
You can build exciting and engaging ice breaker games that everyone plays together as part of a virtual or in-person team event.
People can learn surprising facts about their team, class, or co-workers that can spark conversation, debate, and even friendships.
To start, find out more about your team to help you build the questions for the ice breaker game.
To gather insights, ask your team some fun, entertaining, educational, or obscure questions.
For more inspiration, check out our icebreaker questions.
Once you've got some amazing questions, use a tool such as FlexiQuiz to ask and gather responses from your team.
All responses are automatically saved on your analyze screen.
Once you have your team's responses, it's super easy to create an interactive quiz that everyone can play together in real-time.
Add some pictures, videos, music, and gifs to bring the quiz to life.
To make the quiz:
What percentage of the team believe in aliens?

Who is most likely to sing "Sweet Caroline" on a karaoke night?
