An active, icebreaker game for small groups and large groups

How To Play Mix & Mingle

This get to know you game / ice break game is a great way to generate discussion amoungst a big group or to help a small group get to know a bit more about each other.

Get the group to stand in the middle of a hall area. The leader of the game will stand at the front of the hall, facing towards the group of people.

The game leader will call out a choice to the group, pointing to opposite sides of the room for each option. For example, the first choice could be "inside vs outside". When the game leader says "inside" they would point to the left side of the room, when they say "outside" they would point to the right side of the room.

Each of the players then run or walk to the side of the room which they prefer. For example, if I like "outside" more than "inside" then I would go to the right.

It's good to do a whole variety of choices and some will provide laughter and some might be more serious. I find it helpful to stop (maybe after a more interesting choice) and get the players to turn to someone next to them and ask them why they chose what they chose.

Here are some examples of choices:

Nature vs City
Casual vs Dress-up
Inside vs Outside
Performing vs Watching
Hungry Jack's / Burger King vs McDonalds
Mars vs Snickers
Coke vs Pepsi
Superman vs Batman
Crows vs Power
Scrunch vs Fold
Apple vs Banana
Odds vs Evens
Mac vs PC
Milk Choc vs White Choc vs Dark choc
Werewolves vs Vampires
Facebook vs Twitter
Marvel vs DC
Surfing vs Skating
Dancing vs Singing
