The Dice of the Questions

Dice of the Questions is an interesting icebreaker for face-to-face or virtual meetings that mixes the random with the structured.

In advance, prepare a matrix of six questions get-to-know-you questions and print them onto a card or sheet of paper for all to see. With your group gathered before you, explain that each person will be invited to roll the dice one at a time, perhaps taking turns around the circle.

For example:

  • What is your favorite thing to do
  • Describe what your ideal weekend would be like
  • Name a place in the world where you would like to live
  • Tell a memory from your childhood
  • What situations excite you the most?
  • What do you dislike the most and would you stop doing if you could?

Instruct one person at a time to throw the dice and then respond to the question which corresponds to the number that appears. After they have shared, the first person passes the dice to the next person, and the process repeats.

Continue until every person in your group has been invited to respond.

Moment of Reflection
  • Did it matter to you what question you would be randomly allocated? Why?
  • What did you notice when others discovered it was their turn to roll?
  • On the spectrum of degrees of control, where do you normally like to sit – zero control, full control or somewhere in between?
  • Where else does random occur in your life?
  • How do you manage this randomness?
