How to organize the party games.
I like party games very much, because they make any holiday much more interesting and merry. Playing the party games even the shiest people free themselves, the guests get to know each other better. Everybody is enjoying the time. So that the party games go smoothly and merry You need thorough preparation beforehand. Depending on the staff of Your guests (children, adults or adults together with children) choose proper party games. Imagine what kind of party games would be interesting for Your guests and choose several types of them: active, quiet etc . If You have the children's party use the party games from the Party Games Collection #1 and some party games from the Party Games Collection #2. If You organize a party for teenagers or adults use the party games from the Party Games Collection #1 and #2. Almost all the games of these Collections are suitable for any number of players. Determine the number of the games You’d like to introduce to Your guests. For little children choose 2-3 games so as not to overtire them. For older or adults choose any number of games: play until You have time and wish. At one of our last holidays we managed to play over 20 games - some of them were played by several times each. The guests (children and adults) were a little bit tired but pleased with our party. On average I use 5-10 active and 5-10 quiet games at the children's party. At the adult party I use 2-4 party games of each type from the Party Games Collection #1 and #2. If the players like one of the games most of all You may use it for several times. You'd better organize the active party games while the guests are full of energy before the feast. After the feast You may organize quiet party games. Choose the leader of the party. The leader will organize the party games. You or Your friend can be the leader. The leader must know the rules of the games perfectly. Choose the prizes for the party games. For prizes You may take any things You like: small toys, souvenirs, sweet things etc. These prizes will be given to the guests who win the games. You may choose some decorations or medals for prizes. For example, bands or fillets which the players get for their wins in each game. The players tie their bands or fillets together into a long stripe and attach them to their clothes. Try to give at least one prize to each of the players during the party so that nobody is hurt. Especially if You have children at Your party. If You notice that one of the players always remains without a prize, support him/her. You can unexpectedly change the rules of the game and give the prize not only to the first player, but to the last one, saying it was the secret plan of the game. If You feel that somebody can be hurt during the games – choose team games or the games without the rivalry, the games just for fun. Get ready everything You’ll need for the party games – chairs, boxes, pencils, sheets of paper and something else You need according to the rules of the games. The peculiarity of the party games from my site is that for almost all of them even for the funniest and the most interesting ones You may use usual and available things. You can find these things without any difficulties. Mind, some of the things You need in the game may be broken while playing. For example, when I organized the party game "Music chair" the players flied into a rage and not long before the final 2 wooden chairs were broken (not on purpose, of course). On one hand we felt pity for our chairs, but on the other hand this circumstance added much to our fun. In the final of the game "the chief killer of chairs" was given a prize. If Your party is devoted to one of the holidays, decorate the hall, prizes and things You need in the game with the correspondent symbols and decorations. Let the players know they contend for the prizes related to the theme of the holiday. Be creative when organizing the party games. Don't be afraid of changing some rules according to the situation. I'll be glad if my recommendations are of real help for You.
