Wanted is an ice breaker game for 10 people or more. Each player gets a list of requirements; he has to find other players that meet the requirements.


  • one sheet of paper for each participant.


Each player gets a sheet of paper with a list of tasks. He has to find other players that meet the requirements of that list ("was born in May", "has red hair", "loves classical music", ...). You can either prepare different tasks for each participant or deliver the same task to all players.

Once the game starts, all players have to find other players that meet the requirement and let them sign on the sheet next to the task. Of course, they should also introduce themselves (at least exchange their names).

As the game wants to allow the participants to learn to know many new people, one person should only used once to solve the task (this is not always possible, but you should not just take one person that by chance matches all requirements and then drop out of the game).
