Tips to get ready for online icebreaker games
Tell A Story
Telling stories is one of the most interesting icebreaker games because it reveals how creative your team members are. It's relatively easy to play. You just need to ask your team members to pick up an object nearby or you can choose it and send a picture into the group chat. The item can be anything. Then it's time for sharing! Each of the team members will take turns adding up sentences to make a complete story revolving around the object.
Who doesn't love pets? If it is your first day getting to know each other, a simple icebreaker game idea would be to ask your group to bring their pets or show a few pictures of their pets. After that, you can start the conversation! Talk about the basics like name, age, and where you met them, and make sure to include a fun/personal story about the pet. If your group doesn't have a pet, don't worry! The topic can be their plants, favorite hobbies, or anything that they can show the team and potentially have a story about it!
Want a fun way to get ready before playing other icebreaker games? You and your team can learn a bit about the members' lives by asking the whole team to show off their most embarrassing/awkward/awesome/proud moments through photos. You can get the team to prepare for this beforehand and start the chat at the beginning of your virtual gathering.
