New Year Party Games


The full party mood can be set out with some exciting and amusing games. Once all the decorations are done, its time to plan out some games for the guests to keep the spirit of the party. These games are generally played indoors and the memories of the day keep rejuvenating us throughout the year. So, New Year should be welcomed in an entertaining manner.

Here are some games you can play during the New Year Party: Musical Chair
This is the oldest game played in every ceremony and festival. Some chairs are arranged less than the number of people, a short snippet of music is played while the people move around these chairs. Those playing the game move around the chair. When the music stops everyone tries to sit on a vacant chair. The person who doesn't find a chair is 'out'. Similarly, one chair is taken out after every round. Person who is left at the end of the game is declared the winner'.

My Resolution
This game can be played by 4 or more players. Make your guest write his or her own 5 resolutions, each on a slip of paper. Pull one slip of paper out of a hat at a time and read it out loud. Everyone has to write down on another sheet of paper who they think made each resolution. At the end of the readings, the person who guessed the most correctly wins a prize. Talk about some of the wrong guesses out loud for fun!

The Grouping Game
This is a good game to play as a mixer. It is a fun, fast moving game. It starts out as everyone collects in one big group.

The leader initially calls out a number, usually a number between two and fifteen. The number shouldn't be more than half of the number of total participants. When the number is called out everyone must try to collect in a group that contains that number of people. The group members should be latching arms or have their arms wrapped around each other so that the leader can see who is in the group. If someone cannot enter a group because the number of required members has been reached, he is out of the game. As different numbers are successively called out the number of participants gets smaller and smaller. Eventually, there are less than ten people. The last group, or winning group, should have anywhere from two to five people.

New years win, lose or draw
This game is one of the active games played at the time of New Year. More than 6 players can play this game. Large drawing pads, pens and list of large events are required. Go through magazines and newspapers to pick out events from past years. Use these events as "titles" to Win, Lose or Draw. For tons of fun, make each of your guests team up in two's and draw whichever past year's event that they have randomly drawn while others guess.

Funny Face Contest
Such games have been played by people of all ages for so many years. At times it seems to be a very old concept but is still amongst the most commonly played games. Take picture of your guests one by one. Have them make a funny face and be sure to tell them there is a prize for the best face. After all the pictures have been taken, download them to your computer or laptop and have everyone gather around the monitor. The winner will be judged on the greatest laughter.
