Commonality is the perfect starter game to bring guests together to discover the things they have in common.
Resources: Pen & Paper for each team
How to play:
The Host divides guests into pairs or small groups and explains that they have to discover 3 things that they have in common, the more unlikely or funny the better. Each team must then draw their 3 commonalities (without using text) on a piece of paper for the other teams to guess.
NB: The “Commanility” have to be intangible items such as “we have both driven a truck” not “we are both wearing earrings”.
Rather than splitting into groups have everybody talk to everybody and the ‘winner’ is simply the first person to find something in common with ALL the other guests!
