Name and posture
Type: icebreaker
Number of players: any number
Location: everywhere
Equipment: none
Duration: arbitrary (several minutes)
Preparation: none

Name and Posture is a simple ice breaker game for any number of participants. It can be compared to the game I packed my bag.


You don't need any equipment to play this game.


The players are standing in a circle. The first player introduces himself. He says his name and then presents a posture (or move) typical for him (like clapping, hopping, pointing, scratching the belly, shaking the head, dancing, etc.) The player also explains why this posture is typical for himself.

The next player then repeats the name and posture of the previous player, and adds his own. Like in the game I packed my bag, this list gets longer and longer. You might want to limit the maximum number to 5 or so, that each player only repeats the previous 5 player's names and postures.
