Ok, I am going to share another intro game that always goes over well at my shows (so well in fact that this seems to be the most requested as well)! Actually I shouldn't say game since there are no prizes so...call it as you see fit.


Naughty Names


Everyone gets a pen and a name tag and has to write their FIRST name only on the TOP only of the name tag. THEN I have everyone pass them 3 people to the left (or right or whatever).


OK, now everyone has 5 minutes to take each letter in the name and come up with as many naughty words as they can for each letter ...and remember, any word can be "naughty" if you really think about it! If you have the letter K you can use C words and vice versa. OH, and if you're stumped GRAB that catalog in front of you and I bet you can find some there (thereby making them look at the products too LOL). OK....GO. Now as they are all working their minds out doing this, I am getting my table finalized and all that....you would be amazed how quiet a room can get!


OK, time is up....everyone pass their name tags to me so I can Meet you all now!


I introduce each person and make them put on their name tag LOL. There have been tags with 1 word and more often then not every single inch has been written on! (and yes, MAJOR big words get used too such as Fu_ _ and P_ _ _ y so I just say Oooo I bet you all can guess what this P word was or whatever. NEVER in all the time I have done this has anyone been offended, they LOVE it LOL!


Example with my name so it makes sense


T~ tasty, tease, tantalize


R~ Racy, raunchy, redhead


I~ ice cube, into


C~ Cute, cuddles, c_ _ k (you get the idea here)


I~ icy, in and out, inches


A~ a$$, anxious, all over, (and the most popular A word Anal)


Hope this gives you all another interesting ice breaker. Oh, and YES I make them wear the name tag!

Great Game Tricia!


I bought a ton of name tags a few months ago, cause the packages were marked down to 10 cents a peice. With a sale like that, you just buy them and figure out what to do with them later.





Thanks!

Here is the icebreaker game I play - everyone LOVES it! Similar to yours:


Everyone has a sticky name tag in their folder. I have them write their first name on it. Then, above their first name, a "spicy" adjective that begins with the same letter. It reveals a lot about people! Then the best part - everyone shares what they wrote.


But - reading your post, I thought, an EXCELLENT twist on this game would be:


Have everyone write their first name on their name tags. Then, pass their name tags three people to the left (or right, whatever). Have *that person add the adjective. Wouldn't that be a RIOT???

I'm glad you reminded us of this one!


I have a big party scheduled for Saturday needed a "faster" ice breaker than the 'Get rid of this object because...' game.


Thanks!


Missy
