ways to connect meaningfully

When you’re at work, church settings, or even meeting new families it can be difficult to “break the ice.” Especially post-pandemic, people can be less likely to branch out than they used to be. 

That’s why, today we’re looking at 3 easy games that get people out of their shell. They’ll be opening up about themselves in no time, without the awkwardness of “get to know you” questions.

1. Play Would You Rather

Would you rather is one of the easiest games in the world, and it always results in a few laughs. All you do is pick one or two ridiculous scenarios and let others choose. For example, “would you rather be stuck in an elevator with a large group of people or stuck on a high ladder?”

You’ll find out a lot about other people without having to ask them direct personal questions.

2. Play Two Truths and a Lie

This game isn’t just for kids.

Participants come up with two truths and one lie about themselves, and the group has to guess which one isn’t true. Often, you’ll get to hear interesting facts about people that you’d never know in ordinary conversation.

3. Try Trivia

This Christmas carol trivia is the perfect holiday low stakes game to play with family or at work. It tests the group’s knowledge in a fun and festive way. Plus, this is great if you have a group of people that feel uncomfortable talking about themselves for long periods of time.

In Conclusion

There you have it! These games help people relax and connect without the stress and tension of getting up “on stage” to introduce themselves.
