Getting to know each other

Description of the tool

This game encourages people informally to get to know more personal details about each other. Put a question on a Post-It note and stick it under the chair. When you are finished with the introduction and learning the names, ask people to find the note. On the notes there might be questions like: What time do you usually get up? What is your favourite season? Who was your best friend, when you were 8? What would you do, if you would not have to earn money? Etc. Ask people to find anyone in the group and interview her/him on the particular question. Then exchange the questions and go on with the other partner.
