Two Resolutions and a Lie
If your party is bogging down, try Two Resolutions and a Lie to liven things up. Each guest presents three resolutions, two of which are true and one of which is a lie. As each guest takes turns sharing theirs, the other guests try to discern which two are true and which is the lie. If you wish, you can have guests keep track of their guesses and award a prize to the one with the most correct.
Cotton Ball Race
This hilarious relay race uses cotton balls and two bowls. Divide your group into teams of from six to ten people. Mark a starting line on the rug with masking tape and place a bowl of cotton balls and a jar of Vaseline on a table. Across the room, have another table with an empty bowl for each team. Each team lines up and on “Go!” the first team members dab Vaseline on their noses, dip their noses into the bowl of cotton balls, race to their team’s bowl, and deposit the cotton ball. Team members take turns, and the first team whose members all complete the race wins.
Variation: Have guests play individually to see who can transfer the most cotton balls.
For this game, you will need ribbon cut into three-foot lengths, one for every two guests. Hold all the ribbons in the middle and have guests grab the end of a ribbon. When you let go, the two guests holding the ends of the same ribbon are partners for a dance. The fun comes when guests see some unusual pairings. Repeat the pairings as often as desired and still enjoyable.
Beverage Relay Race
You can play this game with champagne flutes and two bottles of champagne or any other New Year’s Eve beverage and drink containers. Have those playing sit at a table with a bowl filled with beverage, a teaspoon, and an empty drink container. The goal is to use the teaspoon to fill the container with the beverage. The first player to do so wins the game.
Pass the Hat
A simple game, all you need is a New Year’s hat. Your guests sit in a circle and attempt to pass the hat from head to head without using their hands. If a player drops the hat, they leave the circle. The last player left wins the hat or another small prize.
You will need a banana and an orange for each guest. Place a hula hoop in the center of the room and have the players form a circle around it at equal distances. The goal is to push the oranges into the hula hoop with the bananas. The task becomes more difficult and fun because the bananas are tied to the players waist, about a foot from the ground. Players cannot use their hands. The first to succeed at getting their orange into the hula hoop circle is the winner.
New Year’s Eve Games for the Start of Your Party
When your guests arrive, instruct them to write the first few lines of a song on a long slip of paper. Cut the slips in half and save for later during the party. Whenever guests seem to need some fun, announce it is time to use their song lyrics. Pass out the slips and tell your guests to find the person holding the slip with the lyric that matches theirs. The first to do so, wins the game. You can also use this for pairing up dinner or dance partners.
Part of New Year’s Eve is that midnight kiss. This kissing game ends at midnight, a perfect time to do so, or just before the end of the party. As your guests arrive, hand each woman five to ten Hershey Kisses. Let the men who attend your party know they are to collect as many of the Hershey Kisses as they can during the party. The competition can get fierce and entertaining. When the time comes to end the game, provide a nice prize for the winner.
This game involves matching a resolution with the person who made it. As your guests arrive, have them jot down a New Year’s resolution and their name on a slip of paper. At some time during the party, give your guests a piece of paper, have them number it with a number for each guest. As you read the resolutions, write number on the back of the slip of paper starting with number one. You guests attempt to guess who wrote the resolution. Read the correct answers and the guest with the most correct answers, wins this game.
Guess the Number
Have a large glass jar or bowl filled with counted pieces of candy, pennies, small stones, or marbles on a table where your guests arrive. Provide small slips of paper for them to write the number of objects they believe the container holds and their name. At the end of the party, disclose the winner and the correct number. If you use pennies or candy, the prize for the winner can be the jar or bowl and its contents.
