What you need :
For each team you will need a bag and some everyday household items.


How to Play :
This game was a HIT at my last party!

Find the same amount of different household items for each group and put them into a bag.

Separate the party guests into even groups. Give each team 5 - 10 minutes to create a play or commercial, etc. using ALL the items from their bag.

What you Need:



How to Play:
This game is good for playing with people you don't know that well.  Everyone takes a turn saying three statements about themselves - two that are true, and one that's a lie. The rest of the group has to guess which one's the lie.

I actually played it in my drama class, we were laughing the whole time.



What you Need:
Blank cards, pen, 2 bowls


How to Play:
In advance, on half the cards write the name of a character such as: "fireman", "doctor", "life guard", "baby" and so on. On the other cards, write the name of a situation such as: "buying shoes", "late for school", "having a party". Now put the cards into the bowls putting the characters in one bowl and the situations in the other.

Divide everyone into pairs. The first pair must choose a card from each bowl and their mission is to act out (miming only!) a sketch so that the audience (other players) can guess what their character is and in what situation. Set a timer for about 3 minutes.

If the audience guess within the time, then they each get a point but if they don't then the actors get a point.
