Get to know your flatmates with this fun new game designed by students

This year I’d managed to get a flat with some friends, but I couldn’t help but feel a little nervous about it. I knew these guys, and I had known one of them for quite a while, but I didn’t actually know the others that well.

It got me thinking; how can we get to know each other in a fun way? How can we turn it into a game or activity for the whole flat? How can we find out about each other’s favourite films and families without having to do the typically awkward and overtly obvious, ‘so, what’s your family like?’
