What are the best, most interesting or fun icebreakers you’ve experienced or used in your online meetings, webinars and workshops so far? I’m making a list and will share back what I learn.

The one I borrowed from a meetup recently was putting a post it on a world map where you’d like to go on vacation. Then breakout rooms to say hi and share why you want to go there.

I start with a really heavy and bloated slide and tell them that’s it basically, do you have any questions?

Give everyone 20 seconds to "find something yellow" then introduce themselves and their yellow thing

I like this one. I’ve done a variation on it where you ask them to get a red/green item that we’ll later use as visual signals for yes/no.

I think perhaps we should respect that some people don't really want their ice broken :-) I'm concerned that agility is making software development an extroverts-only game.

Agile teams should have space for introverts. OTOH, I’ve seen effective, friendly, committed team workers who happen to have anxieties flee an “icebreaker” in tears. I find these exercises not traumatic, but vaguely insulting. They’ve become a fetish amongst certain facilitators.

The group needs to count to ten, One person can only speak at any one time If someone shouts the same number as someone else you have to start again.
