Whether you are 5 or 50, you can never be too old to play games and while playing them, the more the merrier! Large groups are always better. Team games are a great way of breaking the ice between new recruits and enhance team building spirit! But, let's not forget how much fun it is! Here are a few ideas for large groups.
Games for Adults
The more the number of participants, the better. Only bingo cards are required and have to be prepared beforehand. Basically, in this game, the goal is to mingle and obtain signatures of people who either have done the things written on their bingo card or have those personality traits listed in them.
Once, any player successfully obtains a full row, just like in a regular bingo game, he has to yell "BINGO!" In the card, you can write facts which are funny, interesting or downright bizarre! For example - 'Has done skydiving before' or 'Has been to Alaska' or even 'Enjoys walking in thunderstorms'. This is an interesting game for adults and youth alike.
This game works for a group of any size. The larger the group, the more members will be placed in each team. One way to use this game as an icebreaker is to create a photo hunt or maybe a questionnaire hunt.
Two of the three have to be true and one a lie. Once the person shares the facts with all everyone, they have to guess the false statement. Once the entire group votes, the person has to reveal the truth.
Games for Children
The goal of this game is to build a marshmallow tower as high as they can without it falling down. The tower has to be able to withstand on its own weight. The team that builds the tallest tower wins the prize.
