New Year Game Ideas


New Year is a time for fun and frolic and of course parties. Games are an integral part of any party, especially the New Year ones. Some New Year party games ideas:

For Kids

  • Name the Candy:

    Each child takes on the name any cartoon character. They sit in a circle with different kinds of candies placed in the centre. At the roll of a dice each child starts picking up a candy till all of them have one in hand. Now at the end of the game every child picks from the chits placed in the centre with the original names of the children. The children have to remember the assumed cartoon character name and the kind of candy the child is holding. Then he/she will win the candy. Everyone is a winner in this game.

  • Celebrity Hunt:

    Kids love this game. Each child has to write the name of the celebrity and stick it on to the forehead of the kid sitting on the left. The children will not know which celebrity name has been written on their forehead while they can see the others. Now every child asks questions from others to guess the name. The answers can be given only in Yes or No.

    For Adults

  • Guess the Resolution:

    Make all the guests write down their resolutions on a piece of paper. Now give each guest a plain paper and start reading the resolutions at random. The guests have to match the resolutions to the person who has written them. The one who gets the maximum number on the mark is of course the winner.

  • Paper Dance:

    New Year without some dance would be incomplete. Supply every couple with a newspaper. Turn the music on and let the dance begin. At regular intervals stop the music, when the couples have to fold the newspaper and dance on the smaller space. At the end of the game the winner is the couple who is dancing on the smallest piece of newspaper. This game is indeed fun with a lot of ruckus and laughter as people try to dance on each otherís toes.

  • The Champagne Race:

    Give the guests flutes of champagne and a very small spoon. They have to drink the champagne with the help of the spoon. The one who finishes first is the winner.
