This Weeks Top 5 Home Party Plan Games – As Chosen By The Party Plan Guru

March 27, 2011

I thought that I would share with you a my favourite Top 10 Party Games. I know that most Party Plan Consultants have a love/hate relationship with Part Games but done in the right way this can break the ice and also make people feel more relaxed (always a good thing when you are trying to get money out of someone!!) They are a way of getting to know your party group straight away, you can see who the loud ones are, the ones that might ask the most questions and the ones that are much more happier sitting in the corner with their catalogue.

Playing just a couple of great games can lighten the mood, make people laugh and really enjoy themselves. They will then go and tell someone else about you and want to havea  party themselves, thus creating your selling technique all about you, rather than just the products.

So I have included a few of my favourite that I have found on line and that work for me and hopefully work for you, especially if you have a game that you have used on a number of occasions, its always good to refresh things:

1. Just A Phone Call Away

At the beginning of your party ask everyone to take out their Mobile phones and hold them in their hand. You will have yours in your hand as well. Tell them this is the easiest game to win all night! *ha!*Ask everyone to dial in your number – call it out to them number by number – and then when you say GO – everyone hits call. Obviously your phone will ring since they are all calling you – simply answer the phone to find the “winner” on the line. Give her a little goodie for having the “fastest fingers in the room” HA! THEN – while everyone still has their phone out, ask them to SAVE YOUR NUMBER with your first name and company – i.e. Paula, Vie at Home, Melaine, Jamie at Home etc. Tell them that they have your number forever now, and if they ever need anything, you are JUST A CALL AWAY – ask them to please put their phones on vibrate or silent to not disrupt the party, and then begin with your Party Presentation.

Always a good one for people to remember your number too, getting two birds with one stone!!!

2. Alphabet Game

Write each letter of the alphabet on a 3×5 index card.  Hold each card up like a “flash card” and give it to the person who yells out a word having to do with your business (product, opportunity, etc) that starts with the letter you held up!  The person with the most cards at the end of the game wins!  (I also give a gift to the person with the least)

3. Thread Intro

Pass a spool o thread around to your guests and tell them to take as much as they want. Tell them you want to get to know them a little. Tell each guest to talk about themselves as they wrap the thread around their forefinger. When they teach the end they can stop. Start with your hostess. Go around the room till everyone is introduced.

(I really like this game as it gives me an opportunity to talk about me for a reason, and not just some mad party plan lady!!)

4.  Pass The Prize

Have a wrapped prize ready for this fun game. Hand 1 person the gift and have them follow the instructions as you read them. The person who is holding the prize at the end is the winner! (Similar to the Left Right Game)

“You thought all the gifts were meant for you. But I have other items too. So hold up this gift and look around, and give it to the one with eyes of brown. You think you are the lucky one, but let us all share in the fun! Look around with eyes discreet, and give it to the one with the smallest feet. Your feet are tiny and very small. Now hand it to someone very tall. Please, take your time and don’t be harried. Give it to the one who is longest married. You must be proud of your married life, now pass this on to the newest wife. If this parcel you are bereft, give it to the one on your left. The largest earring I’m looking for now, if you’re wearing them, step up with a bow. Now to the person with buttons– big or small, any kind, the most you can find gets the gift at this time. Now don’t get cross and please don’t fight, but pass it to the lady third on the right. We should stop now, don’t you agree? The gift is yours to open and see.

5. Replace Your Husband

An ice breaker game to play at the beginning of the party
Have each guest write down an item in their house they need to repair or replace. Then have them list 5 simple reasons they want to get rid of it. Now have them cross out the item and place their husbands name in that place. Go around the room and have each person read aloud “I want to replace (husband’s name) because he….(the 5 reasons). The funniest answers win.

(This is a really funny game and gets everyone laughing and in a good mood to start with)

We hope that you will find this very helpful in having some fun and different games for your parties, it is always nice to try something different and if you find it does not work for your personality then you know not to use it again. The Party Plan Guru every week adds different games so please make sure you keep up to date with ideas and also suggest your own to her.
