Do you need some new ideas of ice breakers on Stormz? Here are some templates using the Quiz! We already decorated them with images, filled the instructions and set the correct parameters so they are ready to use. You will also find some advices on how to animate them. Have fun!

1. Would you rather... ⚖️

“Would you rather” is a fun and ready-to-use ice breaker using the iconic “Would you rather” game. Each question includes a statement encouraging participants to quickly make the trickiest choices... For a fun and quick ice breaker! It includes:

  1. Would you rather live in the ocean or on the moon?
  2. Would you rather meet your travel back in time to meet your ancestors or to the future to meet your descendants?
  3. Would you rather lose all of your money or all of your pictures?
  4. Would you rather have invisibility or flight?
  5. Would you rather live where it only snows or the temperature never falls below 100 degrees?
  6. Would you rather always be slightly late or super early?
  7. Would you rather give up your smartphone or your computer?
  8. Would you rather live without heat and AC or live without social media?
  9. Would you rather be the funniest or smartest person in the room?
  10. Would you rather be able to run at 100 miles per hour or fly at 10 miles per hour?
  11. Would you rather be a superhero or the world’s best chef?
  12. Would you rather be an Olympic gold medallist or an astronaut?

Current parameters ⚙️

  • Participants can only pick ONE answer (NOT to be changed)
  • Facilitation mode: ASYNCHRONOUS (can be changed) - participants are allowed to answer the whole list of questions at their own rhythm.
  • Previous question: Participants cannot go back to the previous question to change their answer (can be changed)

Tips 👍

  • You can modify, delete current questions or add new ones if needed!
  • There are three dynamics possible to facilitate this ice breaker - the most recommended dynamic is “Free rhythm”:
  1. Free rhythm (asynchronous mode) - Give the instructions, give some time to participants to answer all the questions and when they are all finished debrief the results: publish the results of the first question and move to the next one etc.
  2. One by one (synchronous mode) - Give the instruction, publish the first question and let the participants answer to that question, publish the results of that question and debrief then move to the next question.
  3. “Timed” (synchronous mode) - Give the instruction, publish the first question and let the participants answer to that question, publish the next question when X seconds are over until all questions are answered. Then debrief all questions.
