Funny Games To Play At Parties

Delight your guests with party games.

Party games allow guests to break free of the standards of behavior that dictate their daily actions and join in outlandish fun. As you plan your next gathering, select an assortment of games to delight your guests. Regardless of their chronological age your guests will likely feel young again as they engage in fits of fancy and work to complete challenging, game-related tasks. Does this Spark an idea?

Crazy Clothes Relay

Get guests' hearts racing with a crazy clothes relay race. Buy an assortment of garments from the thrift store or pull out some in-need-of-retiring attire from your closet. Create four bags full of clothing, each containing the same number of garments.

Divide your guests into four teams and give each a bag. Tell them that they must take turns donning all of the garments in the bag and then running from the start line to a set point and back. Tell them they cannot simply carry the garments. The first team to complete the task wins.

Hot Potato

Hot potato is an easy and enjoyable game that older party guests may remember from youth. You need only a stereo and a potato or any other unbreakable object small enough to hold in your hand. Give the potato to one guest and tell the guests to pass the potato as quickly as possible when the music starts. The player holding the potato when the music stops is out. Move through the game, eliminating players, until the winner remains.

Marshmallow Tower

Get your guests thinking with an engineering-related challenge. Divide them into teams of two or three. Present each team with a box of toothpicks and a bag of marshmallows. Tell the teams that they will have ten minutes to craft a structure using only the toothpicks and the marshmallows. The team with the highest tower at the end wins. Have teams race to create their structures. Reward the winning team with a special prize, such as a crown made from toothpicks.

Water Balloon Toss

A water balloon toss is a refreshing break on a hot day. Fill a collection of balloons with water and divide players into teams of two. Give each team one of the water balloons and have the pairs line up facing each other, creating two lines of players who throw their balloons to their teammates.

After each successful throw one line takes a step back. As the players move farther apart the throws will becoming more challenging and more balloon dropping will likely take place. The last team with an un-ruptured balloon wins the game. If you are planning this game tell your guests before they arrive so that they do not show up in their best designer attire.
