Welcome Event Icebreaker Ideas

Icebreakers can help everyone feel at ease and can be a great way to get to know people!

Here are 10 ideas for you to use in your Society Welcome Events or all year to get everyone smiling at the start of your socials!


Kahoot Quizzes are easy to use and great fun! Make your own quizzes or explore the ready made selection here. All you need is a projector and everyone can play along in the same room from their smart phone!


Have fun playing a classic game of Pictionary! Why not think of some society related drawings to challenge everyone or use an online random word generator.

Split the room into 2 teams and pick a artist from each group to use a whiteboard or flip chart pad. Have fun guessing the drawings and taking turns to draw!


There are so many versions of Bingo you can use this one again and again!

Try creating your own cards with numbers and think of things people might have done for example: binged a whole Netflix series a day!

OR give Rock and Roll Bingo a go and give get everyone guessing there favourite tunes!


A timeless classic, a game of Charades has been used as an icebreaker for generations! Create two teams and pick one person from each team to be the silent actor, pick a word or phrase using a phrases generator or think of things related to your society. Everyone can take turns to guess and the team with the most correct guesses wins!


Super easy to organise! All you need to do is pick a place, object or person that is related to the society, get everyone to ask up to 20 questions to guess what you are!


Split in to groups and ask one person in the group to say three things about themselves: 2 true and 1 false.

Then everyone needs to vote , it is then revelled if the person was telling a truth or a lie.



Use a ball to pass around the room, the person holding the ball needs to say a society related word for example: RPG – Dice. Next, say the name of someone in the room and throw the ball to them, now its their turn to say a word! This is a great way to learn everyone’s names!

8. Boggle

Get everyone to write a random letter on an A4 paper (or pick a society related word and use the letters – for example: Musical Theatre – Les miserables) ask them to hold up the letters , give the group 1-2 mins to think of as many words or the longest words they can from all the letters!


If  there is a small group of you this is a short fun guessing game, simply download the app, hold your phone up to the screen and everyone can guess away!


Randomly choose a letter and five categories or use a generator to help you choose categories and letters. Give everyone in the room 1 minute to think of things related to each category that start with the assigned letter. You get a point for every category you get right and double if you do more than one.
