Small Group Games

Icebreakers for Small Groups (2 to 5 people)

The following icebreakers are especially useful for small groups and teams of about two to five people.  In many cases, larger groups can subdivide and play these as well.  Just because you don’t have a lot of people doesn’t mean you can’t have a great time.  Try them out and let us know which ones you think are the most fun!  Check out the instructions within each article below.
