Truths and Lies

  • A great way to get a group of unfamiliar people talking about themselves and each other is to plan an icebreaker game of “Truths and Lies.” On the party invitation, ask each guest to prepare three statements about themselves; two of these statements should be lies and one statement should be true. After your guests arrive for the party, introduce each guest in turn and have them recite the three statements. Let everyone guess which statement is true.

Newylwed Game

  • Try a party game for couples that puts a little spin on the famous “Newlywed Game,” but is geared to couples in long-term relationships. As guests arrive, give each one a questionnaire with 10 questions, such as “Where did you go for your honeymoon?” “What is the secret to your relationship’s success?” or “What is the craziest thing you have ever done together?” Allow them to answer the questions in private and collect the answers. Later in the party, read the answers without revealing who the couple is, and see if the guests can guess which couple it is.


  • The name of the game is “No,” and the object is to be sneaky and catch each other off guard. Upon arrival to the party, each guest must put on a string of Mardi Gras beads, lei or other similar object. Throughout the party, each guest must try to trick other guests into saying the word “no.” If they do, they win that person’s beads. At the end of the night, you can see which clever person has won the most beads from the other guests.

Who Am I

  • Who Am I is a simple game that can be played for free with the aid of a few common household items. Create a list of names that everyone at the party will be familiar with. Famous historical figures, movie stars, musicians, bands, fictional characters and politicians are a good place to start. Write each name on a small piece of paper or index card. Tape a name on each player’s back or forehead where he or she can’t see it. Players then interact with one another as if they are the names they have written on them, while each participant attempts to guess who he or she is. For instance, if a player is Malcolm X, another participant might say to him, “You’re going to finish that bowl of olives by any means necessary,” in reference to Malcolm’s iconic quotation.
