Human Scavenger Hunt

A human scavenger hunt is a great icebreaker activity or team building game for adults or teens. It’s a “get to know you” game that is fun and engaging while also allowing folks to learn a bit about others in the group.

You can choose to set this human hunt up as an icebreaker game at the beginning of an event, or include it as an activity at your next staff meeting or corporate picnic. It’s something that can be done over the course of a morning - during break out sessions - or in one set time frame. If you are planning a wedding, consider using this as a game to play once the out of town guests start to arrive.

Be creative in how you decide to play the game. You can even map the clues out like Bingo and have folks attempt to be the first to get five in a row, or an “x”, etc. Have fun with it!
