Celebrity ID Game

Instructions: The Celebrity ID Game is a good way to get a large group to mingle and break the ice by interacting with lots of people rapidly.  To set up, the moderator prepares several labels with famous celebrity or well-known names (e.g. Tom Hanks, Mickey Mouse, Barry Bonds, etc.)  The moderator sticks a label on each person’s back.  You can also stick labels or cards on a person’s forehead if you like.  Then, the moderator announces it is time for the game to begin.  At this point everybody mingles and introduces themselves to each other, and then each person asks yes or no questions to gain clues about the name.  When a person correctly identifies the name, he or she removes the label and continues to mingle until a preset amount of time.
