Gone are the days when a simple chocolate cake and a few balloons alone marked our children’s birthday. Today, it is not uncommon for parents to spend up to $500 on hosting their cherub party, lest it is seen as the most boring ever. On the menu, therefore, we offer clowns, magicians, musicians, zoo therapists, and so on!
But the imagination could just as easily make your children and their little guests very happy, even if it requires a little personal investment. Why not go back to the indoor games that made everyone so happy? Like Truth or Dare, a story to follow and flip cup game is always crazy party games to play with friends. If you don’t like the role of animator, an uncle, or a friend, Meebily might love to help you to share crazy party games ideas to play with friends.
Some suggestions for Party Games to play with friends:
Draw the music (5 or more players)
Ask each player to write the title of a song on a ticket, and then put them all in a box. Now the players divided into two teams, choose an “artist” who must draw a song from the box and draw it to make his team guess the title within the time allowed. No words are allowed.
The three names (7 players or more):
Draw lots for a playmaker, then form three lines in front of him. The playmaker assigns the name of an animal to each line. When he announces one of these names, the players in the line in question must squat immediately. If he then gives the name of another queue, they must get up quickly. If he repeats the name he has just announced, the players in the queue concerned must keep their last position. The playmaker cites animal names faster and faster to mislead players in different lines.
Story to follow (4 players or more):
The first player begins to tell a story of his invention. He stops suddenly, and the next player must continue his story by adding everything that goes through his mind, before stopping abruptly in turn. Each player goes on trying to give the story an unexpected twist and make it as funny as possible. Try, in the end, to remember the beginning of the story!
The flip cup game (3 or more players)
It’s the perfect game for team play; you can even plan a tournament! All you need is a table, goblets, and alcohol. At the start, the first players of each team must drink their glass. They then place their cup on the edge of the table so that the glass bottom slightly protrudes from the edge. Using a flick of a finger (thumb or other) they must turn the cup over on the table, it must turn around and rest upside down on the table. They start over until they get there. When the player has finally succeeded, the next player on his team can, in turn, drink his cup and try to return his glass. The first team to finish their glasses first won!
