Stranger Things

### Intro

As a fan of Stranger Things, I’m always looking for ways to bring the show’s unique atmosphere, characters, and storylines into my events. One fun way to do this is by using Stranger Things-themed “This or That” icebreaker questions. By asking questions related to the show’s themes, settings, and plot twists, you can create a sense of excitement and curiosity among your guests and encourage them to share their opinions and experiences.

How to incorporate Stranger Things themed This or That questions

To incorporate Stranger Things-themed “This or That” questions into your event, follow these steps:

  1. Prepare a list of questions beforehand that are related to the show’s themes, settings, and plot twists. 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 Stranger Things 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 Stranger Things-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., “Who is your favorite Stranger Things character?” or “Which character do you think has changed the most since season 1?”).
  • Settings: Ask questions about the show’s iconic locations and environments (e.g., “What is your favorite place in Hawkins, Indiana?” or “If you could spend a day in the Upside Down, where would you go?”).
  • Plot twists: Ask questions that reference the show’s major plot points and reveals (e.g., “Do you prefer the mystery of season 1 or the action of season 3?” or “What was your reaction to [spoiler] in [season/episode]?”).
  • Themes: Ask questions that explore the show’s themes and messages (e.g., “What does Stranger Things teach us about friendship?” or “How has Stranger Things changed your perspective on sci-fi and horror?”).
  • Soundtrack: Ask questions related to the show’s iconic soundtrack and music (e.g., “Which Stranger Things theme song is your favorite?” or “What is your favorite use of music in the show?”).

By incorporating these different themes of questions into your Stranger Things-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!
