Mail Call

This is a good icebreaker similar to musical chairs.

Number of participants: 3+
For:
Intensity level: Medium
Preparations: Place chairs in a circle, if chairs are used.
Equipment: chairs (optional)
 

Have everyone sit on the floor or on chairs in a circle with no gaps. One person stands in the middle of the circle and says (for example), “Mail Call for everybody who is wearing green.” All the people who have something green on have to get up and switch seats with another person who is wearing green. It’s similar to musical chairs. The goal of the the person in the middle is to get a chair and force another person to be in the middle. One rule is that you cannot sit in a chair immediately beside yourself, nor can you sit down on your own chair.

Note: Mail Call can be for things other than colors or clothes, of course, such as, “Mail Call for everyone who…has a brother…has a cat…likes to eat liver…sleeps on the left side of the bed…has been to Washington, DC…feels hungry.” Be as creative as you like!
