Organizing games for a dinner party is a popular way of enjoying it to the fullest. Sometimes, games are played before dinner is served, while in some cases, these are arranged after having the dinner.
Definitely, games are not the central event of this party, so organizing them rightly while considering the time is essential. Well, making a simple party extremely eventful and memorable for everyone is easy with some fun-filled games.
Find the Match
You need a few plain or ‘Hello’ stickers for this game. Make a list of famous couples and write them randomly on the stickers. As the guests arrive or when you start to play the game, one must go and start sticking a sticker on each guest’s back. Once this is done, you have to say ‘Start finding your match’. Now all the guests will mingle and try to find their match to form the right couple. Instead of famous couples you can have interesting variations in the games. Like a pair of office supplies, name of author and books, name of artist and work of art, player’s name and his/her team name, and much more.
Take small pieces of cardboard paper. Start by writing a phrase or a simple statement on each piece. Place one below each guest’s plate. Make sure that it is an unusual statement. Such as, ‘I was abducted a week back’. When all arrive at the table, ask them to read the note that is placed below their plate. This must be kept a secret and hence, should not be read aloud. Ask them to memorize it well. Now, the game starts with a conversation. During this, they have to try to slip this phrase into the conversation. Well, the trick is that no one must realize that you have slipped this odd phrase in-between. If someone states their phrase and someone realizes it, the person who realized must point out and tell the phrase. If it is right the guest who is caught is out of the game. Those who use the phrase, which no one realizes are winners.
Guess the Spice
You need at least 10 different spices, each one in a separate plastic container for the game. The containers should be covered with white paper if they show the name. Also, there must be 3 – 4 small holes on the lid so that guests can smell the spice. Number the spices from 1 to 10. Give a paper to each guest. Start passing the spices. When each one gets a spice bottle he/she can smell it and write down its number and name on the paper. Then comes the next spice, again each guest will guess and write down the name in front of the spice’s number. When all the spices have been passed it is time to count the scores. Get the sheets and check who has maximum correct answers. This person wins the game.
Don’t Cross Legs
This is one of the fun-filled games for kids and adults where each player is waiting for other people to do a mistake. Give each one a napkin. As soon as anyone crosses the legs, the one who caught him, will get his/her napkin. Now, if a person having more than one napkin crosses legs, he/she will lose all the napkins to one who caught him/her. At the end, the one who has maximum napkins wins the game. Well, most of us have the habit of crossing legs while sitting and even while standing so this is surely going to be a fun party game!
These games will surely add an excitement element to the occasion. Think over, and try out various adaptations in these games that can be even more interesting to play. There are a number of games that you can opt for and make your party an enjoyable event.
