We understand that getting the conversation started is not an always easy task. To help you out, we’ve created a list of conversation icebreaker ideas for fun and easy ways to break the ice.

Simple Questions

  1. How was your day? Did you have a nice weekend?
  2. Do you have anything planned for the weekend?
  3. What’s your favorite food (colour)?
  4. How many languages do you speak?
  5. What’s your favorite place that you have visited?
  6. What’s your dream job and why?
  7. If you were marooned on a desert island, what 3 things would you take?
  8. What’s the shortest, but funniest joke you know?
  9. What is the good thing that happened to you today?
  10. Had you any difficulties to get here because of the weather?
  11. If we held the Olympics tomorrow, in which sport would you win the gold?

“Say opposite”

The point is you should tell something about your day, but using opposites.

For example: As soon as I woke up this morning I stepped on a soggy cat hair ball with my bare foot. It was absolutely AWESOME!! Ecstatic, I cleaned it up and proceeded downstairs where I met my husband. He had taken the day off, (I hate when he does that!), and he made me waffles. I said to him, “honey, that was so inconsiderate of you!, I really hate you!” They tasted so awful I ate another plate. He can be such a jerk sometimes. I took my dog out for her walk and when she pooped I thought about how lucky I am that she never poops in the privacy of her own back yard, but always on a corner where a million cars go by, and how dignified I must look cleaning up her mess and carrying it around with me in a plastic bag. I really hate my animals!

Alternatively, you should tell what have happened to you/how to something in reverse order (a recipe, a journey, the daily regimen etc.).


“Time Travel Into the Future”

You should tell about a future trip, as if it has already occurred :)


“What’s the Question?”

This game forces players to think backwards a little. There are two teams (three will work, but two seems to add just the right amount of competitive tension) and two players – one from each team – come to the front. Style it like a game show if you like, with players standing side-by-side. If you have access to bells or buzzers, it’s even more fun. The leader read an answer to a question and say, ‘What’s the question (for it)?’ The fastest player to respond wins a point for her/his team.

For example

A: Bring the water from the river and wash it.

A: Wherever he wants to.

A: Very carefully.

A: To get to the other side.

A: Because it doesn’t work.

A: It is not possible because you have not
been there.

A: Just if you believe.

A: It is why i never get sick.

A: Because I like to wake up early.
