Wine tasting Silly online games

For my team we do birthday trivia lunches. I send random 20-30 fun questions about them to the birthday person, they answer and we as a team guess what they like, watch, eat etc. A good ice breaker for the team members to get to know each other.

This is an example from my previous workplace. A few days before the team meetings, leadership would pick a theme. People participating would submit their entry to the SharePoint. Before the meeting started the presenter would display the entries in one slide and the people that submitted would talk briefly about their entry. It was an optional activity but most people participated, it helped a lot to learn more about each other and stay connected. Some themes were: a picture of your favorite summer activity, a holiday recipe, a picture of your favorite place to visit, your favorite movies, a hobby you enjoy, etc.
