Fun New Year Party Games
This is one of the oldest games played in New Year parties. You will need the number of chairs to be one less than the number of guests playing. The chairs are arranged one after the other, in a row, in zigzag manner. The host is near the music system and stands with his/her back to the chairs. Participants will have to move as soon as the music starts and sit on the vacant chair the moment it stops. The one who does not manage to get a chair for himself/herself is 'out'. One chair is removed after every round and the person who grabs the last chair is declared 'winner.'
This is a fun, fast moving game that keeps everyone involved. In this game, everyone collects in a big group and the leader of the game calls out a number. The players then group themselves as per the number called by the leader. The people unable to enter a group as the required number is reached and are left out are considered 'out' of the game. The number of participants eventually gets smaller and smaller, as the number gets smaller and smaller. The winning group can have any number of people between 2 and 5.
Funny Face Contest
This game is quite popular around New Year and gives a good laugh to everyone. You can ask each guest to make funny face and can tell him/her that there is a gift for the winner. Do not forget to click a picture of each of them individually and take a print out of it. The one with the higher number of votes is declared a winner. This game will give a good laugh to each one of the guest present there.
This game can be real fun and gives a good laughter to everyone present in the party. List popular and whacky songs on a slip and put them in a bowl. Now, divide the guests in two groups and ask any one of the members to pick one slip of paper. Now, ask the group to sing the song in slow romantic, hip-hop and rock mode. The group who does it better wins. This game will keep the guests involved and set the rhythm for welcoming the New Year. You can record the voices too for a long memory.
