Bunch of keys
Bunch of keys is an ice breaker game. It can be used to introduce the members of a new group in a creative way. It can be used with any number of participants, but will take longer with more participants. It is a variation of the game introduction in pairs.
Each player needs a bunch of keys or some other personal object (like a wallet or a purse, handbag, smartphone with apps, ...).
The group is split into pairs.
The pairs introduce themselves. The do so using the keys: Instead of just telling a few facts about oneself, the participants use their own keys as guidelines:
- This is my door key; I live in a flat in Vienna with my family.
- This is my car key, I drive an old Mercedes.
- This is the key to my scout house; scouting is one of my hobbies.
Each of the keys (or cards in your wallet, objects in your handbag, apps on your smartphone, etc.) certainly tells a short story about the person.
Then, the whole group meets again, and everybody introduces his partner. His key will give you hints not to forget the stories you just heard.
