This is the best game which makes even unknown people interact with each other.
Thanksgiving Potluck Contest
It is common to have potluck for thanksgiving. However, what if we make it a cooking contest? In this, divide the guests into groups with two or three people. The group is asked to bring some delicacies for the thanksgiving dinner. There must be a panel of judges to choose the best dish.
This is an interesting adult game in which the guests are divided into two groups with equal number of members. Prepare some cards with different terms written on them. Then, choose one person from each team to pick the card and explain the word written on the card to his team mates. However, he or she should not use the taboo words which are listed on the card. In case he uses one, a point will be added to the opponent team. The card must be hidden to the team and visible to at least one member of the opposing team so that they know when the taboo word is spoken. The team which guesses as many words as possible in 60 seconds wins the game. The cards are then passed on to the next person.
Thanksgiving Memory Game
Thanksgiving memory game is an interesting one in which guests are made to sit in a circle. The game starts when the first player says, "At Thanksgiving dinner I ate turkey" which the next player repeats, but by adding one sentence of his own as, "At my Thanksgiving dinner I ate turkey and cranberry". The third player repeats the sentence by adding another dish as "At Thanksgiving dinner I ate turkey, cranberry, and stuffing". The game goes on with each person adding one dish to the sentence after repeating the previous items, in the same order in which they were said. In case one player makes mistake, he is dropped from the team and the game goes on until only one person is left.
