About the intervention

This icebreaker consists of making attendees choose between two options to embrace discussion and interaction among them. The format for questions can be varied, it can be questions to make players think about what they value most, be it pizza or pasta, love or money, integrity or ego, or even privacy or freedom.

How to set it up.

In-person

  • Gather a list of questions (see resources list)

  • Organize people in the centre of the room

  • Each time a question is asked people need to move to one side or the other

  • After the question they regroup in the centre

Remote

  • People join a videocall on zoom/teams 

  • Everyone opens the link to the Miro board or menti platforms where the activity will be held

  • The rounds are done simultaneously with the call and timings are lead by the facilitator.

What to do during.

Both remote and in-person

  • Once players choose option 1 or option 2, embrace discussion of similarities, differences of opinion and controversies! 

  • It's also good to have a Miro board or Menti setup with the questions beforehand. In case people need to set up any programme to use for the activity they should be advised beforehand by email.

How you can mix it up ...

Format: Different ones can be also used, such as comparing one thing like eating only boiled rice for the rest of your life with another bad situation each time and letting people choose each time.


Miro version: Different platforms will work with different processes. In Miro the facilitator can create the questions beforehand in different canvas and make attendees vote using a random emoji they can choose, this way the participants are allowed also to engage more and be creative on their emoji selection.
