Getting to know you Game
This is a good introductory game that I’ve used with my school behaviour groups in the opening weeks. I’ve also used it with various youth groups as a good way for everyone to get to know each other. I also turn it into a game to see who can remember each others answers at the end of the session.
- Write the questions below on cards or you can make up your own.
- Place the cards face down. Explain how each card has a question on the reverse. Each person will have a turn to pick a card and answer a question.
- Answer each question as honestly as possible.
- If there is a question that any of the participants feel uncomfortable with, you can say “pass” and pass it onto the other person, who can also say “pass”.
- All answers can be discussed depending on how long you have for the meeting.
Write the following questions on cards
- What do you do best?
- What sort of TV programmes do you like best? Which ones do you watch every week?
- If you won a £1000 – what would you spend it on?
- What do you like best about school/work?
- What has been your happiest moment so far?
- If you were someone else who would you be?
- What has pleased you most today?
- What do you think you will be doing in 10 years time?
- I get nervous when?
- What scares you most?
- What makes you laugh most?
- What embarrasses you?
- When was the last time you cried?
- What angers you?
- One of my favourite childhood memories is?
- I get bored when…?
- My favourite food is?
- My favourite song is?
- My favourite film is?
- The person I admire most?
- The best film I’ve seen recently?
- If I could have any job it would be?
- If I could change anything about myself it would be?
