I was in this ice breaker group once where the leader had the brilliant idea that, "now we are all going to turn to the person on our right and give them a shoulder massage!"
I was like, EXCUSE ME?! FUCK OFF!!
OMG I would flip out.
You and me both!
The only icebreaker I ever remember enjoying was one where we told the group three things about ourselves, two true and one not, and then answered questions about them. The rest of the group had to decide which one was the lie. Fun. And no pressure, because no one was forced to be the center of attention. The leader just asked for a few volunteers. I think the lack of pressure made it more effective as an icebreaker, because we really did relax and have fun.
