Get the party rolling with this fun icebreaker. Each guest is assigned a secret identity of a fictional character or celebrity that’s printed on an adhesive name tag. The name tag is placed on each of their backs where they can’t see. The object is for each guest to figure out who they are based on how other guests interact with them. Having an identity crisis has never been this much fun!
