Activity Overview

This pack of cards are used as ice breakers and introductions for groups, who may, or may not already know each other. Whether the group want to know more about each other, or they are meeting for the first time, the cards are a fun, effective, and informal way to get to know coworkers and colleagues. 

The purpose of this game is to get acquainted with other people in an unexpected way. Becoming acquainted within a group in a pleasing and inviting manner is very stimulating. 

Each card contains a thought provoking question alongside an associated picture. The pictures are humorous, inviting and stimulating. By matching a question to a picture, you become more involved with the question and your creativity will be stimulated. This enables you to easily find a matching answer to the question at hand.

The cards were great! I deliver coaching and leadership/training and development to organisations and I like to use a range of different exercises for ice breakers and for exercises where you want to get people working together in a group.
