The Good Place

The Good Place
By Jon Zajac

As a fan of The Good Place, I’m always looking for ways to incorporate the show’s wit, humor, and thought-provoking themes into my events. One fun way to do this is by using The Good Place-themed “This or That” icebreaker questions. By asking questions related to the show’s characters, storylines, and philosophical ideas, you can create a sense of community among your guests and encourage them to share their opinions and experiences.

How to incorporate The Good Place themed This or That questions

To incorporate The Good Place-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 characters, storylines, and philosophical concepts. 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 The Good Place trivia or create a photo booth with props inspired by the show’s settings and characters.

Ideas on different themes of questions

To keep your The Good Place-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 Good Place character do you relate to the most?” or “Who is your favorite human-demon duo in The Good Place?”).

  • Storylines: Ask questions about the show’s plot twists, conflicts, and resolutions (e.g., “What was your favorite season of The Good Place?” or “Do you prefer the twisty storylines or the lighthearted ones?”).

  • Philosophical concepts: Ask questions that explore the show’s themes and philosophical ideas (e.g., “Which moral dilemma in The Good Place do you find most intriguing?” or “What have you learned about ethics from watching The Good Place?”).

  • Humor: Ask questions that tap into the show’s comedic style and humor (e.g., “Which character in The Good Place 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., “Which celebrity guest appearance on The Good Place did you enjoy the most?” or “Which real-life ethical issue do you see discussed in The Good Place?”).

By incorporating these different themes of questions into your The Good Place-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!
