Christmas party will never be the same without games. The best way to enjoy Christmas party aside from the foods and the gifts is through playing some old games.
I was assigned to organize the parlor games for our company's Christmas party for this year, so I started soliciting advices. I also searched for information on the internet about the best games for Christmas party. I was able to come up with this list:
1. Follow My Dance Move
Inspired by a segment in a game show, this game can be played by pair. The game is some kind of similar from that of Stop Dance, but with a twist. Players in pair will dance along with the music, and when the music stops, the two leaders will pose and the players will follow the pose of the leaders. The fun comes with the degree of the difficulty of posing. The last pair standing will win the game.
2. Perfect Combination
This game has been taken from a segment of a noon time show. Two teams consisting of 5 members will play the game. The mechanics is simple. Each team must be able to complete a sequence of numbers that will be shown to them. Three seconds are given on Level A consisting of 5 numbers, and Level B consisting of 7 numbers. Five seconds are given for Level C consisting of 11 numbers, and Level D consisting of 15 numbers. Seven seconds are given for Level E consisting of 17 numbers. The member who can make it up to the last level will win the game.
3. Blow the plastic cap
This one I saw in a youtube video. Two teams consisting of 5 members each will blow a plastic cap from one end to another. Each member will take turn to blow the plastic cap entwined in a thread. The fastest team will win the game.
4. Tiebox Relay
For this game, you need a tiebox of about 3/4 to 1 meter. You should tie both end of the tiebox to make a round shape. Two teams will compete consisting of 5 members each. The first person in line should let the round shaped tiebox pass to his or her body and pass it on to the next person. The next person will do the same until the last person on the line.
5. Pinoy Henyo ala Charade
Obviously, the game has been taken from Eat Bulaga's segment, but with a twist. The mystery word written on a cardboard will be pasted on somebody's forehead. And then, he will try to guess the mystery word through the actions of his partner. The partner is not allowed to speak. He can only give clue through body language, facial expression, hand signal, or by acting.
6. Shoot the glass
This is an individual game. The aim is for the person to shoot the stick on the glass with the blindfold on. He should listen to the instruction from people around in order to aim the glass. The person who can shoot the stick on the glass in the fastest possible time will win the game. You should note that the participant will only allowed to shoot once.
7. Blindfold Banana Eating
I saw this on Youtube. This will be played by two teams with 5 members each. The first two person on the line will be blindfolded, the other one will hold banana, and the other one will wait for the banana to be feed. After the first person finished eating the banana, the first person should pass the blindfold to the third person on the line, and the second person should now feed the banana to the third person. This should be done until the fifth person. The team who can finish first will win the game.
8. Guess that Christmas Tune
This game will be played by two teams consisting of 5 members each. The game master will play a Christmas tune and anybody from competing team should guess the title of the Christmas song. The first to reach five points will win the game.
9. Lemon Slam Dunk
I had played this game last two years ago. The game will be played by pair, one girl and one boy. The girl will try to let the lemon pass from foot to head of the boy. The girl can select any route to the boy's body, as long as it should pass through from bottom to top.
10. Christmas Quiz and Spell
Two teams will compete for this game. An alphabet from A to Z will be provided for each team. The game master will ask a question regarding Christmas, and the team will answer by spelling it. They must pick the alphabets available and spell it. The rule is, one alphabet per member. The first team to reach five points will win the game.
