Re: Ice breaker games for parties

This game only works if nobody knows what's coming... pass around a bowl of m&ms or skittles or a similar candy. Let everyone take a handful, don't let them eat their candies just yet. For every piece they have taken, they must say one thing about themselves. They can eat it when they're done.

I love those.
Unfortunately, I get a very upset stomach whenever I eat anything containing beeswax. So, almost all gummy candies are off-limits. :( I've developed a taste aversion to them anyway.
