Nobody likes a dull party, especially where no one is seen chatting with each other. The best parties often lead a night of fun and developing new friendships and connections. The atmosphere of fun and casual parties—the total opposite of a work environemnt—often makes it easy to spark up a conversation with anyone, but knowing what to ask can sometimes be challenging.

Remember, not everything has to be some cheesy and awkward pick-up line. We don’t recommend that, usually because it could end up with a drink thrown at you, and that’s not what we want. Not at all. We prefer being more strategic by using icebreaker questions that will warrant a response from just about anyone.

Whether it’s a one-on-one conversation or you’re chatting with a group of friends at the party, injecting icebreaker questions in-between your chat can be a good way to get everyone engaging. Icebreakers allow everyone with an opinion, story, experience, or thought chime in — a very helpful tactic for more introverted people that might feel reluctant to be the first to answer.

If you’re at a party now, we actually recommend also checking out our random icebreaker question generator to make it even more suspenseful. Be sure to turn on TV mode so you can run through each icebreaker question one-at-a-time.
