10 Best Icebreaker Games for Teens

After they guess, you should reveal which are the truths and which is the lie. They will be in for quite a shock if they guessed it wrong!

Here are some great questions you can put on each block:
- What is your most treasured childhood memory?
- Who is your most idolized person ever?
- What movie has changed your life?
- Where would you want to go on your next overseas vacation?
- What is your favorite smell?
3. Who am I?
This simple game is everyone’s favorite icebreaker! All you need are some sticky notes and a pen and you’re good to go.
During your turn, everyone else will decide what or whose name to write on the paper before you stick it to your forehead. You will be given a few minutes to guess the name or thing by asking yes or no questions.

4. Post It!
This icebreaker game will surely give everyone that positive vibe we have all been looking for all day.
You will each need a paper and a pen and some tape. Each player will have to go around to write a compliment on each person’s back. The game ends when each player finishes writing.
At the end of the game, you can get the note from your back and read all the great things your friends wrote. Everyone deserves to feel good about themselves all the time. This game will definitely do that for you!
5. Ha, ha
This is a very, very funny game that you should try! It’s very simple, too. All you need to do is start by saying “Ha”, then the next person should say “Ha” twice and the third person should say it thrice… and so on.
The object of the game is for each person to only say “Hahaha” during his/her turn and with the correct number of “Hahaha”. Whoever laughs is out of the game. It sounds simple but don’t be fooled!

8. Who’s The Killer?
This mystery game will need an assigned detective, civilians and killers. All you need to prepare is a deck of cards.
Everyone should sit in a circle and will each pick a card. The number of cards should be equal to the number of players. The group will decide on which cards will mean what. (For example, if you pick King, it can mean you’re the killer.)
All you need to do is stare at each other during the game. The Killer will try to kill the civilians by winking at them. It would be a disaster for him/her if he mistakenly winks at the detective, of course!
The game is over once all killers are dead or all civilians are dead!
9. Catch The Ball
This game is pretty easy and straightforward. You just need to sit in a circle and throw a ball around at a random order. Whoever catches the ball will say something about himself/herself. The player who accidentally drops the ball will need to do a dare.
This is just spin on a classic truth or dare game but everybody loves the action and fun it brings! Follow this link for more infos on the official Truth or Dare game. Truth or Dare Game Rules and Ideas
10. The Singing Bee
A lot of people love music and singing! This game brings both to the table. You just play a song using your phone and the others will either try to guess the singer or the title, depending on what the group has decided.
Others also do the opposite and you will need to sing a song your friends want you to sing!
Teenagers like you and me are up to almost anything fun, exciting and challenging! You only live once and you like to keep things interesting. These games will surely leave you begging for more!
