What are the best quick ice breaker games?

Do you need to break the ice at the beginning of a virtual training session? Do you want to make everyone comfortable and get them talking before a standup meeting?

When you only have a few minutes to work with, use one of these quick ice breaker activities:

  • This or That: Give everyone two options and ask them to pick one. Use Livestorm’s poll feature so participants can cast their vote quickly. Then, discuss the results.
  • One Word at a Time: Create a sentence together, one word at a time. Go around and have each person on the video conferencing call add a word to the sentence.
  • Have You Ever: State a goal or an activity, and ask participants to raise their hand or react with an emoji if they’ve done the thing you mentioned. You can keep it work-themed by focusing on the meeting topic or make it silly with fun questions.

Why quick ice breaker activities are helpful in meetings

Introducing a quick ice breaker activity at the start of a meeting can completely change the mood. After all, these games set the stage for creativity and collaboration.

But their purpose goes beyond fun alone. Instead, think of them as tools for improving communication, lowering barriers, and making more meaningful connections.

Quick ice breakers are also helpful for sparking new ideas. They make team members more likely to think outside the box. This can lead to more valuable brainstorming meetings.
