1. Guess Who

This is the perfect icebreaker at any party, and a great way to meet new people and get the conversation going.

How to Play: Compile a list of popular names and put each one on a post-it. Names include celebrities, talk show hosts, politicians, cartoon characters… you get the picture! Just make sure the names are popular enough that anyone can guess who they are.

As people filter in, stick a post-it on each of their backs. This becomes their ‘personality’ for the evening. It is important to make sure that nobody sees who they have!

As the party goes on, you need to guess who you’ve got stuck to your back. You’ll figure this out by the way people talk to you and what they say.

For Example: You’re talking to someone who has Kanye West taped to their back. Ask them about their musical career and penchant for interrupting little girls on stage.

And hey, no cheating by looking in the mirror!

Idea #2: Two Truths and a Lie

Poll: How do you feel about crying at work?
