This classic game is perfect for any party. All you need is a group of people and someone to act out charades. The goal of the game is to guess what the other player is acting out without speaking. To make it more challenging, try using movie or book titles instead of just words.
This classic game is similar to charades, but with a twist. Instead of acting out the word, players must draw it. The other players then have to guess what the word is based on the picture. This game is perfect for parties with larger groups. Emoji Pictionary is also very popular and teens are really good at playing this game
Speed Cup Stack
Sometimes the simple games are the best. For this game, each player has to see how many party cups they can stack in just one minute. The player who stacked the most cups wins.
Pass the Fruit
This game involves two teams and a bowl of fruit. The goal is to see which team can pass the fruit the fastest without dropping it. To play, line up two teams of equal size facing each other. Place a bowl of fruit in between the teams. The first player on each team grabs a piece of fruit and passes it to the player next to them.
The catch is that they can not use their hands. The game is over when all the fruit has been passed or one team drops the fruit. Or you can play and see how much fruit they can pass in a set amount of time. The team with the most fruit at the end wins!
Find the Rainbow
Give everyone a straw and dump skittles or M&M's onto the table. Assign everyone a color and when the game starts they must try to collect all of the candy in their color sucking them up with the straw and tipping into their bowl.
Every guest needs to write their name on 3 balloons and throw them into the middle of the room. The object of the game is to try to pop everyone else's balloons and make sure yours is the last one left. You can not use your hands to pop the balloons. You also can not hide your balloon but you can try to keep it in the air away from other people. Whoever's name is on the last balloon left is the winner. Or you can tie the ballon to your body and try to pop each other's balloons.
Divide your guests into two teams. One team will be trying to turn the plastic cups upside down and the other team will try to turn the cups the right way up. Set out lots of plastic cups and turn half of them upside down. Set a timer for 3 minutes and whichever team has the most cups either up or down will win.
