Fun Party Games and Icebreakers

Live, Laugh, Play!

Party games can really liven up a social event, especially if they involve everyone. The games listed below do just that so prepare yourself for the unexpected and most of all have fun.

Women Dancing Party Fun

One super fun girls night game I recently discovered is What's a Dame to Do?!

This is one of the best adult party games I've found in ages, and best of all... it was created for women.

It is such a fun game for connecting with friends and is guaranteed to have you doubling over with laughter. I highly recommend it!

For even MORE party game fun, Girlfriend's Intuition will have you rolling on the floor with laughter.

My friend's and I had SO MUCH FUN playing this game that we had a hard time keeping the husband's from wanting to play too.

This is a GIRLS NIGHT game that you MUST try! I give it a definite DIVA stamp of approval. 

Handbag Bingo

purse party games

Make bingo cards on full size sheets of paper. All squares will be left blank except for the center FREE square. Also, cut up some small squares of paper. You'll need 200 or more (depending on how many guests you have). Give 1 bingo card and 24 squares of paper to each of your guests. Have them take items from their handbag and lay them on the bingo squares and then write each of the items on the squares of paper and pass them to you.

Items might include:
A penny, pencil, dollar bill, lipstick, credit card, gum, driver's license, library card, brush, candy, bobby pin, etc.

When everyone's cards are ready, throw the pieces of paper in a bowl or hat and start drawing and calling out the items. As someone's item is called they can remove it from their bingo card. First person with an empty row wins!

Note: Some girls don't carry as much as others in their handbags. It may be a stretch for some to come up with 24 items. Encourage them to use a penny, a nickel, a dime, a quarter as separate items. (Therefore, be sure your guests write down the denomination of their coin and not just 'coin.') It's amazing how many items can be found even in the lightest handbag, but if someone absolutely can't come up with 24 items, have them borrow from others in the group.

Also note: There will probably be a lot of duplicate pieces of paper in your draw bowl/hat. Eliminate them as they are handed to you or as you draw them from the bowl.

There is a 30 second wait time between questions for non-paying users (not bad).

Play it online or get ideas from the site. Check it out here.

Meet back at a One-Hour Photo Shop at a specified time. While you're waiting for the photos to develop have a bite to eat together. Winning team is the one with the most points.

Ask each of your guests to bring 1 roll of pennies (50 pennies), no further instructions.

Person with the most points wins.

Penny Scoring Checklist

Note: Depending on your guests, you could give all of the pennies to the winner. If so, it might be a good idea to announce that at the beginning of the game, just in case there's a reason why someone does not want to give up their pennies.



Drama in a Bag Party Games

Before guests arrive put five or more random items in each of 2 or more shopping bags. It doesn't matter what you put in the bags, just be sure that each bag contains different items. Divide your guests into teams (one team per bag). Instruct the teams that they have 10 minutes (or whatever amount of time you decide on) to create a skit using all of the items in the bag and all of the members on the team.

Variation 1:
Commercial in a bag - have your guests do a commercial following the specifications noted above.

Variation 2:
Have each guest bring a random item. Divide your guests into teams and have them use these items to create a skit or commercial.

Candy Bar Games

Purchase 10 to 20 candy bars ... more if you like. Come up with a definition for each one. Keep the candy bars hidden as you call out the definitions. When someone guesses correctly, give them the corresponding candy bar.
