"The situation is dire - following a shipwreck, everyone has been stranded on a deserted island! Each person is allowed to bring one object to the island - ideally something that represents them or something that they enjoy".
The first part of this icebreaker game is simple: each person is asked to describe what object they would bring and why. This need not be realistic; if someone loves music, he or she might choose to bring a guitar, or an animal lover might choose to bring a dog, a food lover might choose to bring sirloin steaks, and so on. Encourage people to be creative.
After everyone has introduced their object and why they have chosen that object, ask everyone to work together to improve their chances of survival by combining the various objects that they introduced. If necessary, you can add more objects, but be sure to use all the objects that everyone mentioned.
