  4. Christmas “Minute to Win It” Game Ideas and Free Printable Scorecard

    November 17, 2015 by Faffy Tea

    It’s getting all cold and festive! If you’re throwing a Christmas party, here are some ‘Minute to Win It’ game ideas that all guests will enjoy.

    There’s also a free printable scorecard (using our “Christmas Village” theme) that you can download to keep note of guests scores in the games.

     

    1. CLIFFHANGER
    Place 8 Christmas cards in the middle of a table, standing so that the fold of each card is horizontal and the folded edge points upwards. One-by-one guests have one minute each to blow on the cards to move them slowly and gently so that as the cards fall off the edge of the table, one side of the cards keeps them hanging on. It’s tricky!

    2. JINGLE IN THE TRUNK
    Use an empty tissue box and tie string or ribbon to it so that each guest can tie it around their waist. Boxes should be positioned at the bottom of the guest’s back. Fill the tissue box with jingling bells, cotton wool balls and/or polystyrene balls. Guests have one minute to shake their booty, jump and wiggle to get as many items out of the tissue box as they can. No leaning back!

    3. STOCKING FIDDLER
    Get a Christmas stocking and fill it with 15-20 objects. You can use anything you like such as Christmas decorations, household and kitchen objects, and toys (although nothing breakable). Tie up or stick down the opening of the stocking so that nobody can look inside. Guests have one minute to feel the stocking and write down as many of the objects that they think are inside the stocking as they can.

    4. RUDOLPH NOSE BEST
    Purchase some red pompoms (once for each guest… for hygiene reasons!) and tie/glue a short length of string to them. Give each guest a blob of petroleum jelly on the end of their nose. Guests then bite on to the non-pompom end of the string, and have to use their heads and bodies to swing the pompom and get it to stick to the petroleum jelly. See how many times each guest can do it in one minute. Voila – Rudolph’s red nose!

    5. BAUBLES SWING LOW
    In a corridor or large room that has a carpet, create a track along the floor by taping some edges or laying down string. Attach a plastic bauble to string / ribbon just at the right length that it can swing between guests’ legs and reach the floor. You can also use another piece or string or ribbon to tie the bauble on string around guests’ waists. each guest then has one minute to swing their baubles between their legs and hit a ball along the track, just using the movement of their bodies (no hands!). If they hit the edge of the track their turn is instantly over, so they must go carefully and slowly. After a minute, measure the length they have achieved!

    6. SNOWBALLS ‘N’ STICKS
    Find two Christmas biscuit tins (or similar vessels!) and fill one with cotton wool balls, then decorate some chopsticks to look all festive. Guests have one minute to use the chopsticks to move as many cotton wool balls from the full tin into the empty tin as they can!
     

     

    Free Printable Christmas Game

    Here’s a free printable scorecard that you can use to make note of all guests’ scores for the 6 “Minute To Win It” games above.

    The scorecard is a JPG image file so can be printed from any home printer.

    It will work best if it’s printed at A5 size – e.g. use the Windows Print Pictures feature to print two copies on an A4 sheet of paper or card:

  6. Free Printable Hen Party Game – “The Phone Game” – Simple, easy game using guests’ mobile or cellphones

    September 22, 2015 by Faffy Tea

    Here’s a new free printable from our 90s inspired Hen Party range – “The Phone Game”.

    This very simple point-scoring game is created for Hen Parties (Bridal Showers / Bacherlorette Parties), but would also be fun to play at any type of party. Get all of your guests to take out their mobile phones / cellphones. On the game sheet you’ll see that guests collect or lose points based on their phone’s apps, messages, contacts and so on. The guest with the highest score wins!

    We like the thought of mixing a very modern concept into a retro 1990s themed party (you also might be able to get guests to abandon their phones for the night afterwards!)

  8. Top 5 Unusual Party Games for Adults: Part 2

    August 13, 2015 by Faffy Tea

    Last year we put together a list of some very unique party games for big kids (i.e. adults!) – Read part 1.

    Well, now it’s time to list some more!

    1. CELEBRITY HUNT

    Unusual Party Game Idea Find a picture on the internet of a celebrity relevant to your party – the birthday boy/girl’s favourite star, or somebody who’s a bit of an inside joke for you and your friends. You’ll just need a shot of their head and shoulders, and preferably one where the celebrity is making a stupid or scary face (Arnie screaming in Kindergarten Cop works well – see photo!)

    Print out 20 or so pics of the celebrity image, and cut them out from their background (it will work best if they’re printed on to card).

    Hide the 20 celebrities around your house, so that they are peering out from cupboards, from behind the toilet cistern, out of a drawer, out of the toaster, in the fridge… anywhere that looks comical!

    Split your guests into teams and get them to find as many as they can. Once they find a celebrity they can remove them so the other team cant find them. The team who hunts the most celebrities wins!

    2. PASS IT ON – DRAWING GAME

    Pass it On Drawing Game This is a hybrid game, mixing Chinese Whispers with a Pictionary / Win, Lose or Draw style game!

    Prepare a number of word cards with people/places/songs/sayings/situations your guests will need to draw. Make them reasonably hard.

    Split your guests into two teams. You will need at least 6 people per team and even numbers in a team for this game to work well. Get the teams to arrange themselves in an order, and make sure that they are not sitting too close to each other. Give everyone in the team a pen and piece of paper.

    Let the first person in each team choose a different word card, and then give them 30 seconds to try to draw that word on their piece of paper, as best they can.

    When 30 seconds are up, the first person passes their drawing to the second person in their team. The second person looks at the drawing, hides it, and then writes down a guess of what the drawing is on their paper. This part is not timed.

    The second person passes their written guess to the third person. The third person is then given 30 seconds whilst they draw the second person’s guess on their piece of paper.

    When 30 seconds are up, the third person passes their drawing to the fourth person in their team. The fourth person looks at the drawing, hides it, and then writes down a guess of what the drawing is on their paper.

    … and so on until you get to the last member of the team. This member guesses out loud what they think the previous drawing is of. If they get it right they get a point!

    The game starts again with a different member of the team starting by picking a card.

    3. SKITTLES RELAY

    Unusual Party Game for AdultsSplit your guests into two teams.

    For each team set up a large bowl of Skittles (or another small sweet/biscuit variety).

    Also for each team set up a number of pieces of paper (50+) in another bowl, with a number between 1 and 8 written on each piece. The paper should be folded so guests can’t see the numbers.

    Make each team stand in a line and sound a bell or whistle to start! The team member at the front picks a piece of paper from the bowl and then has to count out and eat that exact number of Skittles from the bowl. They open their mouth to you to show that they have been eaten, then run to the back of the line and the next guest in the line picks from the bowl …and so on!

    The team wins when all of their Skittles have been eaten or they get through all of the pieces of paper.

    To make it harder:
    A. On the pieces of paper state a number AND a colour e.g. orange. So that guest not only has to eat the amount of Skittles but also has to pick out and eat only orange ones!

    B. Instead of numbers, on some of the pieces of paper make guests do a quick forfeit e.g. 5 Star Jumps or Give everyone in their team a high five! These guests will not eat any Skittles on that particular turn!

    4. WIND UP TOY RACE

    Toys Race Party Game Why go to the races when you can create your own?

    Buy a number of cheap wind-up toys in the same style, shape and size. Create a race track with individual lanes by using strips of tape on a table. (Or if you’re really clever, build a race track in a large wooden box with sides built up to split the lanes).

    Get your guests to pick a toy each, or even get them to place bets on which toy will win. Wind up the toys and start your race! The guest who backed the winner gets a prize.

    5. WATER GUN SHOOT OUT

    Unusual Outdoor Party Game

    This is a game for outdoors only!

    Buy some water guns/pistols and then set up a water shooting range, for guests to have a go at knocking down objects.

    Anything that water can knock down will work, but ping-pong balls on top of a line of beer bottles or golf tees works very well.

    Give guests a certain number of ‘shots’/squeezes to shoot off as many ping pong balls as they can.
