The next New Year’s Eve is celebrated in your home and you want to organize an extraordinary party, a night to remember forever! If you’re new to home parties and can not think of the best party games your guests will appreciate, here are some tips that could help you get on with planning the party at home and the games (including drinking games) to select.
You are the host, so it is up to you to choose which games your guests will play. The sooner you finish, the more time you have to plan and buy. First, meet your guests. If the party at home is for a group of close friends who prefer to stay awake until dawn with the glasses in their mouths, drinking games are the way to go. Otherwise, if you are abstainers, it is better to choose some fun board games like “Taboo” or “Pictionary”, or conversation games like “Dumb Charades” or “Truth or Dare”. Either way, decide in advance and buy in advance what you need.
Finishing the game (s)
The main purpose of games at a party is to have a common source of fun, rather than people splitting into smaller groups for a private conversation. It is also a game changer, intentional pun, for guests with diverse backgrounds, or for those who do not know each other very well. Whatever your reason, here are some fun games to drink and not to drink, to help you concentrate. Of course, you can choose more than one.
A useful tip to select drinking games is to choose the type of liquor. For example, “Beer Pong” would go well with your guests only if they are beer lovers. If your guests are not particular about what they drink, go with other games like “Never Have I Ever” or “Flip Cup”. Warning: do not choose drinking games that require shots if there are only lovers of whiskeys.
No drinking games
For a more formal home party or one with children, board games or conversational games are your best option. Choose among the most popular games like “Dumb Charades” or “Pictionary”. You can also explore lesser-known options, such as “The Book” or “Dictionary Game.”
Up to date
Now that you’ve planned, bought and decorated, your real test as host will take place on the day of your party. When your guests start arriving, let them calm down. Do not jump to the games immediately, do them at home first. Once you start the games, try to keep your plans, but stay open to improvisation if things get boring. As a host, you must strike a balance between having the last word and being courteous. The most important thing is to start conversations, be perfect with the supply of food and drinks, and mix with all the guests alike.
