Quick Draw Name Game


A great ice breaker that can be adapted to any age. 


Equipment Needed:

Large blanket, parachute or heavy sheets and one or two leaders.


How To Play:

The group is divided into two teams. The leaders hold up the large blanket so that neither team can see the other. One member from each team approaches the blanket. When the blanket is dropped, the first person to call the other by their correct name wins. The slower person then switches teams.


Brian suggests:

If the group is completely new to each other, name tags are ideal. Name tags however can be removed from their traditional place and placed somewhere else that is visible on their body.

If there is only one leader available, one end of the blanket may be held up by something sturdy. The leader then only needs to drop the blanket quickly.
