The leader has the group randomly pair up. Once introductions between partners are made, the leader gives the group a topic to discuss with their partner for 30 seconds or so.
At the end of the time, the leader will call for the group to switch partners and call out a new topic.
Try to choose topics that are both fun and insightful. Examples include:
“If you could have lunch with anyone from history, who would it be?”
“If you could be granted one wish, what would it be?”
