Bingo is a great ice breaker activity; it’s easy to customize for your particular group and situation and everyone knows how to play it.
Before the meeting or party, make a bingo game using The Bingo Maker. Instead of the bingo numbers insert an interesting "people" characteristic such as "Is afraid of spiders" or "Can dance the salsa" or any type of question that serves the purpose of the meeting.
Each participant should receive a bingo card, walk around the room and find participants that fit the characteristics. The game will give the participants an opportunity to talk with each other and learn more about their colleagues.
