what is an "icebreaker" anyways??

Compliments of wikipedia, an icebreaker is a facilitation exercise intended to "warm up" a group by helping the members to get to know each other in a light-hearted manner.

Commonly icebreakers begin the process of forming individuals into a team. Mainly, they are presented as a game and often focus on sharing personal information such as names, backgrounds, or opinions.

why icebaker??

the name "icebreaker" was taken, silly.

instead, we're baking the ice.

see, the intention is the same. broken or melted, its not taking the original form!
