For a group of partygoers who enjoy getting theatrical. Everyone brainstorms a ton of different events to react to (seeing your favorite celebrity on the street, discovering a viper under your bed, biting into a sandwich only to find a finger) then writes them down and pops them into a hat. Participants will draw one of the events from the hat and react to it while everyone else attempts to guess what on Earth they’re screaming or fainting about. Full instructions here.
You may not be able to play this quite as well as the Barden Bellas from Pitch Perfect, but a more low-key (and off-key) version of the game is just as fun. Full instructions here.
10. Partners in Pen
Break into pairs and sit back to back with your “partner in pen.” One person has a drawing instrument and some paper and the other has a bag full of odd objects from around the house. Person Two describes the object to the drawer who then sketches the description. Can they guess what they’re drawing? Full instructions here.
One person makes a “things” statement (for instance, “Things That Make You Smile”) and everyone else writes down an example on a piece of paper. The answers are collected and read aloud and everyone tries to guess who wrote what. Full instructions here.
18. Freeze Dance
Pick out some tunes and dance away until it’s time to FREEZE. If you don’t freeze you’re eliminated and if you’re the last person on the dance floor? Well, you have very good reflexes and you’re the winner. Congrats! Full instructions here.
