Arranging Christmas party games for groups is fairly simple and you won't even have to spend as much time and energy in getting them going. Here are some great ideas that you can try for your Christmas bash.
Playing games is a great way of adding life and laughter to a party. While thinking of some new party game ideas, you can draw inspiration from TV shows and TV games. For example, you can pick up a few games from the 'Minute to Win it' show and make your party a great success.
Remember to select the games according to the age group of the people attending the party. Here are a few examples of games that the guests will definitely enjoy playing.
This is one of the most fun games for groups. You don't even need to make special arrangements for it. Ask the guests to write down one of their funny habits on a piece of paper, along with their names.
You could encourage them to write by revealing one of your own funny idiosyncrasies; for example, someone could say that he washes his hands three times before having dinner. Collect the chits in a jar and read out one of them without giving away the name of the person. The group will have an amazing time figuring out who the chit belongs to.
A Christmas Millionaire
A spoof of the hit TV show 'Who Wants To Be A Millionaire', the Christmas millionaire is an entertaining party game. Ask a simple question to the whole group and pick the first 5 people who answer it correctly. Now, the selected people will sit on the hot seats and answer general knowledge or Christmas related questions.
Anyone from the group, other than the 5 contestants can ask the questions. You can give exciting prizes to the winner. You can also adjust the number of contestants according to the size of the participating group.
Divide the guests into two groups for this game and select movies with a Christmas theme. Stipulate a time frame for each team to act out the movie and guess the name correctly.
To make things exciting ask the groups to pick out a Christmas name for their group, for example 'Rudolph' or 'North Pole'. To add to the fun, allow one team to mislead the other when they are guessing the name of the movie.
Drunk Treasure Hunt
Hide two chests filled with gifts in two different locations and place clues about them around the house.
To make it different from the normal treasure hunt game, with every clue a team finds, ask the members to have a shot of whiskey before continuing on their quest of finding the treasure. The game will get crazier with every clue found. It will get difficult for the teams to find the treasure after getting a little tipsy.
These were a few new and fun-filled ideas of games for a Christmas party. With the right food, music, and games, your party will surely become memorable.
