13 fun Friendsgiving games

1. Never Have I Ever

This is an excellent ice breaker game!

It works well if the guests don’t know each other well, but there is always something new to learn, even if they do.

Oh, the stories you’ll hear!

What you need:

  • 10 pieces of candy for each player

or

  • nothing, just use your fingers

How to play:

  • Give everyone 10 pieces of candy or chocolate chips. (Or hold up 10 fingers.)
  • Take turns making “never have I ever”-statements, for example, never have I ever jumped out of a plane.
  • Those who have done it eat one of their candy pieces. (Or they lower a finger.) Ask them to tell about the time they jumped out of a plane.
  • Once your candy is gone (or all your fingers are down), you’re out.

2. Sweet Talk

Sweet talk is another simple ice breaker game.
