Are you looking for the best small group icebreaker games? Be sure to check out this list!

With so many great icebreaker games on the site, leaders often ask which are the best small group icebreaker games.

While I try to include directions for small and large groups, team leaders, small group leaders, and Bible study leaders often need an icebreaker that’s tailored to a smaller group size.

If you’re looking for an icebreaker game for a small group of 6-12 people, you’ll want to bookmark this post!

As you select your small group icebreaker game, take into consideration whether or not this group knows each other well. For example, if there’s a new face in the group, you won’t want the group guessing which person wrote which answer as they’ll be at a distinct disadvantage.

If your group is tight-knit, you might think there’s no need for an icebreaker game. I beg to differ! Icebreaker games can encourage women to share random information that you might not otherwise discover. Plus, some of your group members need that little bit of conversation warm-up before you dig into deeper or more serious conversations.
