Clare (clarereads) I'm attending a meet-in-person book club for the first time and someone asked me to come up with some icebreakers to help people get to know one another.

I looked on here for fun suggestions (love the first line thread) but I can't think of many literary or just fiction games that could get people chatting. I hope someone here will help me.

Erika (erikareading) There is a game you could make. Basically, make a "bingo" grid. Then you put random things in the boxes. So if you wanted to make it book related, you could put a different popular book title in each square. Then people have to go around the room and find someone who has read [blank:] book. When a person has found someone for each square (all on the grid) they call 'bingo'. I have had to do this several times where they were character traits. Not a bad game because if someone is too shy to do the whole icebreaker chat thing, they at least get to know people's names.
