What is the Guess Who icebreaker?
Guess Who? is a fun guessing game where everyone is asked to write down a fun fact about themselves that the rest of the group wouldn’t know.
After everyone submits their facts through anonymous poll answers, the rest of the group tries to guess which fact belongs to who, one by one.
This is a great team-building icebreaker as it encourages people to reveal something new about themselves. It can spark conversations, bring people closer together, and foster empathy within a group.
How it works
- Open the poll and ask each person in the group to write down a random fact about themselves—something that others in the group are unlikely to know already! Remember that this will be anonymous. 😉
- Once all answers are in, read each one out loud. After reading each fact, play a sound from the soundboard. This should be the trigger for the group to put down who they think each fact relates to in the chat!
- Once all votes are in, ask the ‘owner’ of the fact to come forward and elaborate in more detail (if they feel comfortable doing so). You can choose to put them in Spotlight when they do.
