Party Games -
Right out of the I Love Lucy episode when they are in France, you’ll
select two “key” guests (better with a male & female) to compete in this action-packed event
favorite. We fill two large round containers with grapes and ask the two contestants to take off
their shoes. When the music starts (the Tarantella naturally), the two contestants start stomping on the
grapes for about 3 minutes. The crowd usually
stands and everyone gets into the competition. When the music stops,
each contestant gets out of the containers and we will pour the contents onto a large screen which is sitting
on top of an empty container. The screen filters the
smashed grapes from the juice which falls into the container. We then pour the
container of juice into a large clear measuring cup to determine how much grape juice was
created. We hold it up for everyone to see and cheer to. We then measure all
over again with the second contestant’s container and compare it to the first contestant to determine the
winner. With this popular contest, everyone comes out a winner.
adult version of Musical Chairs where for each chair remaining on the floor, there’s a man sitting on
the music starts, the ladies walk around the chairs in a circle until the music stops. The ladies try and sit on
the laps of the gentlemen. It’s a great icebreaker
and a fun way for your participants to meet other guests.
This game is for couples (married or
boyfriend/girlfriend). We have the men sit on chairs in a straight line and remove any jewelry or easily
identifying items. The ladies are than blindfolded and we ask them to go and touch each guy to try and
determine which one is theirs. You might be surprised
by the results.
An envelope is taped under one chair at each
table. At the appropriate time, I’ll ask everyone to look under their chairs and pull off the
envelopes. We can either stop there, or we can have the guests pass the envelopes around the table
until the music stops. I’ll ask someone for a number between 1- 6 (using 3 as an example) and the envelope then
gets passed to the third person on their right who gets to keep the prize inside the
This is played with either individuals or with
couples. When the music stops, participants have to freeze. The last one to stop
dancing is out. This will continue until we have a winner. We will inform the
dancers that they have to dance to the rhythm of the beat.
We will select a couple to start the dancing. When the music stops,
each dancer will than choose another partner from the crowd to dance (this puts four people on the dance
floor). This will continue until everyone is dancing. This is a great
icebreaker for your party.
All participants move to the dance floor. Once the music stops, all dancers will have to hug in groups from whatever number we call
out once the music stops.For any dancers that cannot find enough people
to hug by that number, they are out.
Two teams are asked to stand in lines, positioned so they are most visible to the
audience. Everyone is given a toothpick. The first person in line
receives a lifesaver candy and places it on the toothpick they are holding their mouth. On our signal, the
lifesaver is passed from team member to team member, toothpick to toothpick. Hands are not allowed to
touch anything. If the lifesaver drops, a new one is supplied and play continues. The first team to pass
their lifesaver to the last person in line wins.
All participants will be lined up in two or more lines by male,
female, male, etc. The object of the game is to pass an orange between their chins up and back down the line
until one team wins. Contestants cannot use their hands. If an orange falls, it
must be tossed back to the first two players in line to start over again.
Teams are divided up into equal teams. Contestants from each
team must race to one end of the room and back, then tag the next team couple who then do the same and so
forth. There’s a trick however – they have to race with a piece of fruit between their foreheads
without dropping the piece of fruit. To make it even more fun, each team draws their fruit out of a bag…you
could get a banana, orange, or even a grape.
(Corporate Mingle Game)
We’ll need three $10 bills to start off. You will choose one of your
guests and tell them to write down the 1st, 10th & 20th person that comes up and introduces themselves. At dinner, have the
special person announce who the three people are and give them each $10. It is a great way to
get everyone to mingle and introduce themselves.
