These games are themed according to the past year and the new year. You will, however, also find games that quickly have you dancing or placing your hand on your friend’s chin while they hold their head against your shoulder.
You will need: Space for the guests to dance.
This is the perfect party game when you want to get your guests moving. It is also ideal as a children’s party game when the kids are energetic and need to expend some energy.
Play dance-friendly music that suits the group and let everyone dance. Every once in a while, you stop the music, and everyone must freeze. Now you must judge who is moving too much and is out and must leave the game. Once you’re done, you start the music again. Keep going until only one player is left - the winner.
At a children’s party, it might be more fun for no one to lose and have to leave the game. Instead, everyone can just have fun!
You will need: Marshmallows.
The participants will one at a time put a marshmallow in their mouth and try to say “Happy new year!”. No one must swallow their marshmallows. The one that completes the most rounds wins.
You will need: Pens and slips of paper (or mobile phone).
This party game lets everyone reveal secrets about themselves. Each player will write three statements/facts/happenings/secrets about themselves. One is correct, and the other two are false.
Then, everyone will, one at a time, read their three secrets aloud. Next, the other players must guess which one of the three is the true one. Everyone that makes a correct guess is awarded 1 point.
Then, you move on to the next player and continue until all players have read their statements.
The player that has gathered the most points during the game wins.
