The Best Party Games for Your Guests to Enjoy

  1. Giant Jenga

Who knew wooden blocks could be a source of merriment? The classic Jenga game packs a lot more fun when it's lifesized. Ideal for outdoor parties, giant Jenga is a game of skill and a little bit of luck. 

  1. Giant Connect 4

Pair up and see who can best each other in a game of giant Connect 4. It's a larger-than-life version of everyone's favorite game. Prepare for a battle of wits as you block each other's discs in an attempt to get four-in-a-row.  

  1. Sticker Stalker 

Give everyone a pack of stickers. The objective is to place the stickers on all the guests without them noticing. If they notice, you'll have to take the sticker back and get one placed on you. Who wins? The first one to get rid of all their stickers!

  1. Likes & Dislikes

Each guest should have an index card and write down five things they like and dislike. Encourage them to make it as witty as they can. Gather all the cards and have everyone guess who wrote what. The one with the most number of correct guesses wins. 

  1. Malteser Game

Place two bowls in front of each participant -- one with Maltesers and one without. Then, give them each a straw. Explain that they have to use the straw to suck and pick up each Malteser on the empty bowl. The first one to transfer all their Maltesers wins. 

  1. Dancing Chain

Have all the players form a circle. Choose one player to do a one-move dance step. The player on their left will copy the move and add their own starting a chain. The chain follows until the last player. 

  1. Category!

Form a circle and think of one category. It could be anything from countries, animals, and the like. Each person has to name something under the said category in five seconds. If someone repeats an answer given by someone else or isn't able to answer in five seconds, they're out.  

  1. Mummy-fied

Pair up players and give each team a roll of toilet paper. One will be the "Mummy" while the other wraps them with the toilet paper. The first team to run out of toilet paper wins.

  1. Saran Wrap Ball

Guests will form a circle and unwrap treats and prizes from a large ball of plastic wrap. Start with one player while the person to their left tries to roll doubles with a pair of dice. Once doubles are rolled, the ball and dice are passed to the left.

  1. Freeze Dance


Have everyone dance to upbeat music and designate someone to pause and play the music. Every time the music stops, people have to freeze. If someone moves, they're out of the game.

7 Clever Ice Breakers To Make Your Event Exciting

7 Clever Ice Breakers To Make Your Event Exciting

Ice breakers are essential for any event with either big or small crowds. You can use these activities to encourage engagement among guests and make everyone feel involved. That's why every event planner or host should have a lineup of good ice breakers up their sleeves.

What Makes a Good Ice breaker? 

Unless everyone at an event knows each other as close friends do, awkwardness can be an issue. However, you can easily avoid this if your guests feel comfortable around each other. You'll need a good ice breaker to cut through any awkwardness. It also sets a fun atmosphere that will put your guests at ease. Here are the qualities of an effective icebreaker: 

  • It's unique. Introduce fresh activities to a crowd to make them intrigued and eager to participate.

  • It's easy to do. A complicated set-up takes up a lot of time and can discourage your guests from playing along.

  • It fits a variety of personalities. Every crowd is diverse, so an ice breaker has to be applicable for a variety of personalities. 


Ice Breakers for Weddings, Corporate Events, Anniversaries, and More

Here's a list of seven clever ice breakers that will surely make your next event exciting! 

  1. Hidden Talents

Get everyone a card and have them write down their hidden talent. Place all the cards in a container. Let everyone pick a card by random making sure that no one gets their own. They then have to find out who owns the card they hold and use their hidden talents as a conversation starter. You can even have them perform their hidden talents if they’re up for it! 

  1. Candy Facts

Have a big bowl of small candy pieces (like gummy bears) around the crowd and tell them they can take as many as they want. But they can't eat it just yet. Everyone should have at least one piece. Then, depending on the number of candies they have, tell them to share that many facts about themselves. 

  1. Cube Toss

For this activity, you'll need an inflatable or cardboard cube. Write a question on each side of the cube. Have guests take turns tossing the cube and answering the question that it lands on. Make sure to ask humorous questions for a whole lot of laughs. 

  1. Paper Plane Questions 

Get each guest to write down a question on a piece of paper as they enter the room. Have them fold it into an airplane and launch these in random directions simultaneously. Each guest must pick up a paper airplane, find out who wrote the question, and give them the answer. 

  1. Playing Cards

Randomly distribute a playing card for each guest that arrives. You can use multiple decks if needed. Have them group each other according to the suit of their cards and discuss a funny topic.  

  1. Dynamic Duos

Assign a partner for each guest based on one thing they have in common. The guests then have to look for each other and find out why they were paired together. 

  1. Lock & Key


For this activity, you'll need a lock and key for every pair of guests at the event. Distribute these making sure that each one in a pair doesn't know each other. Have everyone find their matching lock or key and ask a question about each other.
