Use as a way of getting a group to know each other. The free icebreaker can also be used for teams that already know each other, but might want to find out more.
Training course contents:
A one page instruction sheet for the icebreaker, ‘Well I never!’ can be downloaded for free from the link at the bottom of this page, or you can follow the notes below.
Instructions – ask participants to sit in a large circle and hold up ten fingers.
Go around the circle one at a time, each person announces something that they have never done, beginning the sentence with the phrase “I have never…”
For example, a person could say, “I have never taken a sick day from work when I had a hangover.”
Each time a statement is made that a person in the group has done, they must drop a finger. So, if two other people have taken a sick day from work when they had a hangover in the past, those three people must put down a finger, leaving them with nine fingers.
The goal is to stay in the game the longest (to be the last person with fingers remaining).
This icebreaker assists participants in finding more out about each other in a fun way.
