This is a BABY shower? Holy crap!

Lady, I don’t think games are going to be possible for a crowd that size. It’s just not logical to try and organize! The only thing I can possibly think of it to put Pink/Blue M&Ms in a big jar, have people submit guesses about how many there are, and if they win they get a cutesy prize.

 With over 100 people its going to be hard to have games that involve everyone. and if the games only involve a few people then the rest of the guests will be bored.

Wow…you said she’s your brother’s girlfriend, so it seems to me since she hasn’t had a wedding, she is treating this as her wedding, instead?  Never heard of a DJ at a BABY SHOWER!  A catered baby shower with a full bar and a DJ, lasting for six hours on a Saturday…

Don’t really have any advice for you, sorry!  Sounds like they are going overboard with this…maybe check out wedding-type games and then modify them for more baby-ish theme?

I’d probably just have some board games and cards available for people to play.

p.s. this is CRAZY TOWN.

@heathaah: That is crazy!  Holy cow thats a lot of people for a shower!  Thats more like a wedding!  I don’t think the raffle is a bad idea.  At this point, being tacky is the last thing that I would worry about!  All I can think is just…wow.

@heathaah: They did the date the baby is bornguess thing at my baby shower but you got 2 tickets for a pack of diapers and 1 ticket for a pack of wipes! I had A LOT of diapers and wipes!

You could also get curling ribbon and have everyone guess the size of the belly! You can also do baby bingo (while opening gifts) and games that can be at stations for guests to come and go as they please like the nasty candy bar in the diaper or taste and guess what kind of baby food!

oh. my. lanta. 

that sounds insane. I’m so sorry you got put in charge of this! Not fun..

I like Katyelle’s idea about guessing M&Ms and the gift bingo is a good idea too. We did that at my wedding shower and it wasn’t bad. For a big group of people it would work. But I highly doubt that ALL the guests are going to sit and watch her open gifts, esp. if there are a lot of kids present.

The raffle thing sounds fine, since it’s too big of a group for organized games anyway.

Good luck! I’m sorry I don’t have any good ideas 🙁

@heathaah: This sounds like a circus! Maybe you can split the guys and girls up and then further divide those groups into teams and the regular games will work. Best of luck.
