Summary: Ask fun and general questions. Then have players sort into groups based upon their answers. This game can be used to learn something new about people in the group.


  1. Make sure there is enough room to move around freely. Explain that the facilitator will ask a series of questions. Players should find other people who share the same answer to the question and separate into groups as quickly as possible.
  2. Keep the questions moving (i.e. give just enough time for people to introduce themselves before asking the next question). Try to alternate between 50/50 questions and multiple-choice questions.

Possible Questions:

  • Which leg do you put in your pants first when getting dressed?
  • When you clap, is your left hand or right hand on top?
  • Using your index finger, draw an imaginary circle in the air. Does your finger travel clockwise or counterclockwise?
  • Which eye do you use to wink?
  • Can you roll your tongue?
  • When eating ice cream cones, which way do you rotate the cone?
  • What month were you born in?
  • Fold your arms; is your right or left arm on top?
  • How many siblings are in your family, including you?

Debrief Questions:

  • Did you learn something new about someone that you didn’t know before?
  • Was it easy to find something in common with other people?
