One common ice breaker theme is learning each other’s name and at times, this provides enough information to stimulate conversation once the party ice breakers are over. The following lines will help you out in organizing some fun and entertaining icebreaker games for your party to reduce anxiety and tension among the guests.

Spin the Secrets
This is a great game when played in a large group. Seat all your friends in a circle on the floor. Spin a bottle in the centre. Whoever the nozzle lands on, the person has to go to the nearby room, along with the one who spun the bottle, and tell him/her a deep dark secret. The chosen person now spins the bottle. At the end, you have to write the secrets on a little piece of paper provided and collect them in a hat. The secret you draw have to be guessed to whom it belongs.
Yet another fun idea for an ice breaker! Prepare a grid sheet with varied personal characteristics in each square. The characteristics can be: sings in shower, been to America, watches a soap opera, has met a famous person, wears thong underwear, plays the lottery, speaks at least three languages, is a virgin, etc. Distribute copies of the sheets to your guests and ask them to collect unique signatures of the guests, who fulfill any of these characteristics. The first person to get the maximum squares filled is declared as the winner.
Ask all your guests to prepare one lie and two true statements about themselves, while coming to the party. Settle all the guests together and allow each person to tell everyone their three statements. They must do their best to conceal the lie. The remaining people should be provided with a score card and should vote as to which statement is a lie. At the end of the voting, the player reveals his false statement and describes the true statements in detail. This game forms a great ice breaker for any party.
First Impression is the Best Impression
While a guest enters your place, stick an adhesive paper on their back. Ask the other guests to write witty comments or first impressions about them on the paper. Once the paper is filled, ask every person to read out the comments made on him/ her. A fun way to gel into the group and make yourself better!
