Games and Activities
(for Ages 25-29)

A good get-acquainted game for a group is to list the name of guest and something you have in common with that guest. And each common trait can only be used once (i.e. same major, same birth month, brother named Dave, etc.). Whoever has the most names/unique traits in common wins a small prize.

Ask each guest to bring an old hat, and bring extras just in case. Sit everyone in a circle, wearing their hats. As the music starts, each person removes his hat from his head and places it on the lap of his neighbor, who moves the hat to the lap of the next person, who picks it up and places it on his own head. The hats keep going around and around until the music stops. Whoever ends up without a hat when the music stops is out of the game. One hat is removed and the game continues.

Use a Frisbee to knock down 2 liter plastic soda bottles set up like bowling pins. Score the game same as bowling. You might need a bit of water to weigh the bottles down.

Each individual decides on an inconspicuous sign, such as brushing one's hair, rubbing one's nose, winking or such. Select a person to sit in the center of the group with eyes closed for thirty seconds. Next, silently select someone to pass his/her sign (IT). To pass a sign, IT looks at someone in the group, does his/her sign and the sign of the person receiving the sign, who becomes the new IT. This continues until the person in the middle catches a signal being passed (or IT). If correct, the person who got caught sending the signal must sit in the middle.

Have a snow sculpture contest.

Organize guests in a circle. Couples share an experience from their life. Each person then creates that story in 15 minutes by cutting out pictures, headlines, and articles. You could then switch partners and repeat the activity. Or simply display the stories for everyone to browse throughout the evening.

Each guy is assigned a letter, and each girl a number. They all sit in a circle (or two lines for larger groups). One person is selected to sit in the middle. The moderator calls out a number and letter. The person of the opposite sex who is called must kiss the person in the middle (IT) on the cheek before the person of the same sex as IT kisses the person who is trying to kiss IT. This may be altered to "Hugging Rugby" for small kids.

Everyone at the party secretly writes on a piece of paper a sentence or title of two outstanding experiences they have had (funniest, most embarrassing, happiest, etc.). The host draws a slip of paper and reads one of the experiences to the group. Pick three people to come up and finish the story, including the person who had the experience. After the stories have been told, the rest of the group tries to decide who is telling the truth.

Have the group form a circle with their hands out showing all their fingers. This is a count down game. The point is to say something that you have done, and if others haven't done it, they have to put down a finger. Someone says something about him/herself that is different from those around him/her and the others who don't have that in common or haven't done what that person has done puts a finger down. Whoever has any fingers left out wins (decide on a prize before playing). This game can last for a long time and is very enjoyable when wanting to know the real side of people.

Three people leave the room. The others decide on an action such as washing an elephant, or building a tree house. One person is selected to act out the action (without talking). The first of the three individuals is invited back to observe someone washing an elephant. Then the first person must perform the action to the best of their ability to the second person, and then the second person to the third. The third person must then guess what the action is.

Divide a group into teams of 4-7 persons. Ask the teams to invent something that could make life easier, complete with details, diagrams, cost to manufacture, how to market, etc. Start with a 10 minute brainstorming exercise to identify things that are annoying or time consuming.

Play a quiz game like Trivial Pursuit or Who Wants to be a Millionaire.

Set up chairs in a circle facing inward (one chair per couple). The girls sit in the chairs and the guys stand behind each girl with his hands at his side. Then ask one girl to leave the circle (leaving one empty chair). The guys must stare at the girls head and not look up. The guy without a partner winks at one of the girls, who then winks back to acknowledge him. She then tries to get to the other guy's chair before her current partner puts his hands on her shoulders to stop her (he cannot move his hands until she tries to move).

Play water balloon volleyball using a sheet to catch and throw. Each team member must hold the sheet. The scoring is the same as in regular volleyball.

Weave baskets.
