March 9, 2007, Newsletter Issue #128: Party Games for All Ages

Tip of the Week

If your next party will have several generations of family included and you're looking for the perfect games to play that will be appropriate for both granddaughter and great-grandmother, here are some ideas:

Name That Tune: you'll need a CD player and a compilation of songs that relate to your theme (or use random songs from different decades if your party doesn't have a theme). Play the first few bars and see who can come up with the name of the song fastest. Keep track of points and award the winner with a music CD or other gift. Two Truths, One Lie: everyone tells three things about themselves and one of them is a lie. For example, someone might say, "I have traveled to three continents. I am 38 years old. I have 3 birds." Then everyone has to guess which statement is the lie. This is sure to produce laughter as everyone guesses the lie.Murder Mystery Party: there are games on the market designed to walk you through your own Murder Mystery Party at your home. These games can be played to a formal sit down dinner, to a pot luck dinner or even to take-out. The kits come with invitations for your guests, secret clues, name tags, costume suggestions and player manuals. You can also pick your setting -- whether it's high tea at the library, panic at the prom or murder in the mansion. There are games you can download on the Web that will walk you through how to host this type of party as well.
