What is Story Starters

Story Starters is a cool icebreaker game that sparks creativity, boosts storytelling, and fosters connections among colleagues.

The aim of Story Starters is to encourage team members to share personal stories, fictional tales, or creative ideas prompted, to build a stronger bond and understanding within the group.

Story Starters Rules

  1. The facilitator kicks things off with a story prompt for the group.
  2. Players then jump in, adding a sentence or two to the story, building on what others have said.
  3. Let the story go wherever it flows as long as it sticks to the prompt.
  4. After everyone's had a go, wrap up the story, and get ready for a fresh prompt in the next round.
