Team ice breaker questions Edit

Here are some ice breaker questions which intentionally avoid cultural and regional references so you can use these to connect with teammates across the globe! Please add more.

How to use these ice breaker questions Edit

  1. Randomly pick a question to start the game. We used a randomizer found online.
  2. Starting with the last person who joined the meeting, each person takes a turn to answer the question in 2 minutes.
  3. When everyone has a turn, use the randomizer to pick another question, and pick a different person to start with.
