Change Identity Game
I haven't read all the activities on your list but an interesting one I have been using recently is the Change Identity game. The idea of the exercise is for the students to mingle and introduce themselves to each other. The moment they have finished introducing themselves they assume the identity of the previous person. That Keiko introduces herself to John. After that John is now Keiko and Keiko is now John. Now the new John and Keiko move on to other people. To add to this exercise you can add simple questions for them to ask. Stop the exercise after about ten minutes and call the roll. It is quite interesting some of the answers you get and some you don't get. Anyway it works for me.
