Two Classic Party Games That You Should Bring Back at Your Next Event
We would be lying to ourselves if we didn’t admit that we miss pass the parcel. As we grow up, we decide that we are too old for party games and that we should stick to socialising. However, as soon as our child is old enough, we get excited at the idea of bringing the old games back. Why should the children have all the fun! We have listed below some of the best party games that need to come back at your next event. We have even provided suggestions to make them a bit classier 😜.
- Pass the Parcel 📦
Surprise! This is the first one we listed. If you have worked with us, you would know that this is our favourite. For those who might be new to the party game, this is what you do. Buy a little, but awesome, gift to stick in the centre of your parcel. Generally, for kids’ events, this will be a toy car or a LOL doll. However, for an adult event you may want to put a lotto ticket, lipstick, a gift voucher, or a box of chocolates. From the centre, you wrap several layers of newspaper around it, including a new, inexpensive, gift in each layer. The inexpensive gifts are generally small chocolates or little toys. For an adult event you may want to include $2 scratchies or chocolates (we can never have too much chocolate). To play, you turn on music and pass the parcel around in a circle. Once the music stops, whoever has the parcel gets to open one layer and keep the prize inside! The anticipation of this game will bring life to your party!
- The Chocolate Game 🍫
As we said before, you can never have too much chocolate. This party game was one of my personal favourites as a kid! To play, you will need a knife and fork, two dice, a silly costume (a hat, jacket and gloves is generally acceptable) and a block of chocolate. The aim of the game is to eat as much chocolate as you can.
The first step is to pass the dice around the circle. Each person gets a chance to roll the dice and if it lands on a six or a nine, you get to enter the circle! Whoever rolled the six or nine, has to put on all of the costumes and begin cutting the chocolate and eating it. If another person rolls a six or nine, you have to take the costume off and switch with that person.
An important rule is that you are only allowed to cut the chocolate one piece at a time! For hygiene purposes, please do not eat the chocolate with the same fork that everyone has been using. You could leave out hand sanitiser and let guests pick up the cut pieces with their hands or give an individual spoon to each member. The prize, you get to eat chocolate! To make this game more interesting for adults, you could up the stakes and say that the last person in the circle gets a bigger prize. Or you could change the costume to something adults would appreciate. No matter what you do, this game gets highly competitive and is always a crowd-pleaser!
There are several children’s games that adults hate to admit they love. Wild Cherry Events loves to adapt these for any oaccsion. If you would like to hear about how to modify more of them, contact us today and let us know!
