Easy Icebreaker Activities: The Numbers Game


hi guys I’m Nigel with elevate and in
this video I’m going to share with you a really easy way to kick off your event
or group gathering it’s called…. the numbers game and it’s extremely fun to
lead it’s perfect for larger groups and works especially well with crowds that
have multiples of 10, okay! Please make sure to stay tuned until the very end
though because we’ll be giving away a free resource that will help you take
your event or group gathering to the next level. All right here’s how the game
goes so in leading the numbers game you
already have on you at least three full sets of the numbers zero through nine
printed out so that’s ten numbers total and it’s best if you print each one out
individually on standard sized printer paper and then you laminate them. Then
you will form three groups of ten people each and if you only have 20 people than
just two teams of ten and each group of ten will get their own full set of
numbers and you’ll want to make some space in between each team so you can
distinguish the groups. Each person will hold a number zero through nine so that
all 10 numbers are visible for each of the teams and then the fun begins as the
game host you’ll begin to call out any number you want ten thousand seven
hundred sixty five eight million one hundred sixty five thousand seven twenty
nine just make sure you don’t have any duplicate number in anything that you
call out. It is best to have a pre-written list on your phone of those
numbers so that you can set yourself up for success. Then you will watch to see
which team arranges the number you call out first
you can award a point to the team who arranges the number the quickest and
continue with the game until one group reaches a total of five points and of
course have a bag of prizes handy for any team that wins and that’s how you
play the number game. Now I mentioned a free resource earlier we put together a
list of hosting and emcee tips that you can use at your next gathering. These
tips will help you bring your best energy excitement and confidence to any
event or group gathering that you’ll be hosting at and you can download this
