Game of Thrones
By Jon Zajac

As a fan of Game of Thrones, I find that incorporating themed icebreaker questions into events is a fantastic way to engage attendees and build excitement around the show’s complex characters, epic storylines, and rich world-building. One approach that has worked well for me is using “This or That” questions based on Game of Thrones themes.

How to incorporate Game of Thrones themed This or That questions

To incorporate Game of Thrones-themed “This or That” questions into your event, follow these steps:

  1. Research and create a list of questions related to the show’s characters, storylines, and themes beforehand. You can find inspiration from watching episodes, reading recaps, or browsing online forums and fan sites.

  2. Print out the questions on cards or display them on a screen or a poster board. Encourage your guests to form small groups of 3-5 people and take turns asking each other the questions. You can also create a rotation system where each group moves on to the next question after a set amount of time (e.g., 2-3 minutes).

  3. Make sure everyone has a chance to answer each question and listen actively to their responses. Encourage follow-up questions, comments, and discussions that build on the initial answers. You can also share your own insights and opinions about the show to keep the conversation flowing.

  4. After everyone has had a chance to answer all the questions, gather your guests in a larger group and ask them to share their favorite or most surprising answers. You can also use this opportunity to highlight any commonalities or connections that emerged during the activity.

  5. Consider using some of the insights or stories that came up during the “This or That” icebreaker as a springboard for further conversations and activities throughout the day. For example, you could organize a trivia game based on Game of Thrones trivia or create a photo booth with props inspired by the show’s characters and settings.

Ideas on different themes of questions

To keep your Game of Thrones-themed icebreaker questions fresh and engaging, you can explore different themes and categories that are relevant to the show. Here are some ideas:

  • Characters: Ask questions related to the personalities, relationships, and quirks of the show’s main characters (e.g., “Which Game of Thrones character do you most admire?” or “Who is your favorite Stark sibling?”).

  • Storylines: Ask questions about the show’s plot twists, conflicts, and resolutions (e.g., “What was your favorite battle scene in Game of Thrones?” or “Do you prefer the political intrigue or the action scenes in the show?”).

  • Themes: Ask questions that explore the show’s themes and messages (e.g., “What does power mean to you after watching Game of Thrones?” or “How has Game of Thrones changed your perspective on loyalty?”).

  • Humor: Ask questions that tap into the show’s comedic style and humor (e.g., “Which Game of Thrones character makes you laugh the most?” or “What is your favorite funny moment from the show?”).

  • Cultural references: Ask questions that reference pop culture, history, and current events that are featured in the show (e.g., “What is your favorite celebrity guest appearance on Game of Thrones?” or “Which historical event do you remember from watching Game of Thrones?”).

By incorporating these different themes of questions into your Game of Thrones-themed icebreaker activity, you can keep your guests engaged and entertained while also fostering a sense of community and shared interest. So why not give it a try and see how it can enhance your next event!
