My favourite Ice Breaker game is called Human Bingo which is most fun when you play it with a large group (20+ more people).

It is similar to Buzzword Bingo, where you have business buzzwords written down on paper (Bingo Sheet with table of 5 x 5) and you cross them off as soon as the speaker, or person who gives a presentation says it.

Human Bingo is kind of the same only that you have odd hobbies, likes & dislikes or also things people can have. For example, likes to sing under the shower, has a Tattoo, has an exotic pet, does not like pizza, can play an instrument, hates soccer, sleeps on the right side, has been to Las Vegas, and so on.

All of the people get a Bingo sheet (different sets so they all do not have the same) and then they have 10 minutes time to run around and find people with those characteristics (putting the name of the person next to the characteristic, no doubles) to score a Bingo.

It is really fun to see them all run around and asking each other, trying to score a Bingo. Some start shouting around: Anyone here that sings under the shower?

So it can be really fun as you have to ask people about things that you maybe would never ask.

The best way to prepare for this icebreaker game is to have the participants email in advance their "secret" and create the bingo sheets from this information.

See www.mftrou.com/buzz-word-bingo.html for an example bingo sheet.

Excellent! NEW
by: Anthony Thomas

Human bingo was amazing! I absolutely loved it. I suggested this activity to my colleagues. They were really impressed. At first it was difficult for them to figure out the whole thing. Later they enjoyed it. We had a nice time.
