The Walking Dead

The Walking Dead
By Jon Zajac

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

How to incorporate The Walking Dead themed This or That questions

To incorporate The Walking Dead-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 themes. 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 Walking Dead 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 The Walking Dead-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 motivations of the show’s main characters (e.g., “Who is your favorite The Walking Dead character?” or “Which character do you think has undergone the most transformation?”).

  • Storylines: Ask questions about the show’s plot twists, conflicts, and resolutions (e.g., “What was your favorite season of The Walking Dead?” or “Do you prefer the human vs. human storylines or the human vs. zombie storylines?”).

  • Themes: Ask questions that explore the show’s themes and messages (e.g., “What survival skills have you learned from watching The Walking Dead?” or “How has The Walking Dead changed your perspective on humanity and morality?”).

  • Humor: Ask questions that tap into the show’s dark humor and irony (e.g., “Which character’s death was the most shocking or unexpected?” or “What is your favorite funny moment from the show, despite its grim subject matter?”).

  • 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 Walking Dead was the most memorable or fitting?” or “Which historical event do you remember from watching The Walking Dead?”).

By incorporating these different themes of questions into your The Walking Dead-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!
