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.


  1. Write the questions below on cards or you can  make up your own.
  2. 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.
  3. Answer each question as honestly as possible.
  4. 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”.
  5. 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?

  • My favourite food is?
