But to keep things fun, here is a set of games that are easy and fun that will for sure create a sense of camaraderie and friendship within your team.
There are many games that can be used as the Ice Breaker and this exercise is meant to break the ice and be used as an introduction. If your team has been together for a long time, you should use the ice breaker as a way to learn more about each other’s character.
One awesome game here is to divide your team into groups, each group needs to find something in common with the whole group, it could be a hobby, a fact, a common crush or even the last movie they have seen. After they have settled on their commonalities, each team should create a list of traits or stereotypical qualities of people who share that trait. This exercise will also break the idea of stereotyping people while remembering that first impressions are just that.
Create a set of questions on paper and distribute it to the crowd with a 3-minute duration of completion and 20 or more questions. Each question should have an action that the person needs to do, example: 1. Fill in your name 2. Shout out your age 3. Stand up then sit down. Now the description of the questionnaire that will come before the questions should mention that each person should only answer 2 questions and leave everything else empty (in this example it would be question 1 and three.) This exercise will test if people follow the rules and regulations or if they don’t read through them at all. While some members will follow the rules the rest of the team will be rushing trying to answer all the questions.

This is a great 5-minute team building game. Split the team members into 2-3 members. Each member needs to sell an object to the other members of the team in one minute. This team building exercise inspires creativity and individual innovation as well as build the salesmen mentality in the team. Each team member would have to come up with creative ways to sell their object be it a watch they were wearing, lipstick, a piece of clothing or even a piece of chewing gum.
Break the group into teams of two or more. Make a list of goofy tasks for each team to do as a group. Tasks can include taking a selfie with a stranger, singing their favourite song to a crowd, or even creating a new language. The list should have a deadline and each task should have a point (crazier tasks can have more points). This exercise will promote a great team bonding exercise that helps break up office cliques by encouraging people to work with colleagues from other teams, departments, or just social circles.
Divide the group into 2 teams, and let the fun begin. Drawing games are especially funny with people who don’t know how to draw. This exercise is a definitely plus for communication, it will help team members learn new forms of communication with their fellow colleagues. Another way to play this game is to have two people seated back to back, with one describing and one drawing. This is interesting because you can then interpret how good a person in
Create a fictional issue that must be solved by the team. This problem could be a theoretical product, a brain teaser, a riddle, a design challenge or anything that needs a solution. Pass only 1 piece of paper around where the first person should write a solution and an idea. The next person should use the new idea to build another solution upon. Continue for several rounds, and then see what the results are. You may want to choose a fictional problem that allows you to reveal one aspect of the challenge each round. By letting your team flex their ideas, this will add values and bring fresh eyes to the process of the business.
