List Them Out
This game is quite simple and can be played by any age group. Give each guest a pen and paper. Make a list of 5 actors and 5 actresses. Both these games require one to be quick thinkers and smart.. The team that guesses the most right, wins. The team that uses the maximum alphabets, wins. Guaranteed fun. For example – You walk in on a friend who is picking his nose. The ABC story – You give a group a situation that they need to enact. Yes of course there will be those great dishes you will have cooked up, all arranged in a four course meal, no less. For example the main word that you need to convey is ‘basketball’ and the taboo words are ‘sports’, ‘Michael Jordan’, ‘net’ and ‘dunk’. At the end of the game, the person who has the maximum names, wins. If you use any of the taboo words, you get negative markings. These could be anything from mimicking someone or singing a song to any of the ‘forfeits’ that you can think of. Try them and see.
The way it is played is that there are two teams that play against each other. There are some of these that you can use as birthday party games and get your party to really rock. The twist is that every new sentence has to start with the next alphabet. The member has to draw out the word on the board that has been provided. A member from each team comes forth and is given a chit that has the word on it for example ‘chocolate cake’. Some of these are:

You need to get as many words as you can in a minute. But you’ll enjoy every second of it.

Out of the Hat
Make chits of a whole lot of activities. With everyone getting involved in solving the mystery and learning to work on the cues, then finding out who the murderer is. There can be more variations to the clues given in charades ranging from movie and song names to book names as well. Dumb charades is played in the same manner, except that the clues have to be acted out. Like if the first sentence started with an ‘A’ then the next one has to continue with a ‘B’ until the whole alphabet line is done. The teammates have to guess the word correctly. The way Pictionary works is that the group is divided into teams. These words are the most obvious options that you would use to describe the main word.

Murder mysteries can get so intense. Once they start playing these games you’ll see how they lose their inhibitions and really start to enjoy themselves. That is what these games ensure. Each member of the team picks a card that has a word on it which he has to convey to his teammates by explaining the concept behind it, but while doing that he cannot use the 4 words that are taboo (can’t use them for describing the main word)
