GIF Battle!

Pump up the energy and get everyone’s imaginations going with this fun GIF icebreaker!

What is a GIF Battle? 🥊

GIF battles are a super easy way to get people comfortable with one another and the Benji platform. You're also sure to surface a few smiles and people's competitive spirit.
In this activity, you'll share a prompt to which everyone has to post a GIF onto the board. Then everyone likes the GIF that hits the mark best for the prompt.

How to facilitate

The battleground for this activity will be a Benji board. In the title write a prompt which the participants will share a reaction to in the form of a GIF.  

Here are a couple of examples, but you can make your own:

  • That Monday morning feeling.
  • My plan for world domination begins with ____
  • That feeling as the waiter comes out with your food
  • You can't solve EVERY problem with...
  • I just took a DNA test, turns out I'm 100%...
  • You just got paired up with your best friend on a project
  • Accidentally hitting "reply all" on a company-wide email.

If you'd like to run multiple prompts, you can set the board up in the column view and put each prompt in as the group title or create multiple boards.

Consider including a GIF battle prompt that connects to the subject of your workshop, lesson, or session.
