warm-up games for holiday party

Our neighbors are getting together and having a holiday party.  It's new home community so everyone is trying to get to know one another.  What are some of good fun games to warm up the party and get to know each other???

Re: warm-up games for holiday party

  • I think a pretty fun one is where you put a celebrity name on your back and everyone goes around and you have to ask them questions until you guess who "your" celebrity is.  That way the mingling isn't so forced and everyone gets a chance to chat a little.  You might be able to put a holiday twist on it and instead of using celebrities, use Christmas or holiday themed words.

  • Whatever you do don't force people to play games. I personally hate going to parties with organized games. Just make sure its an option, that's all.

    There are other similar options out there, but I'm drawing a blank on the names now.

  • I'm a game hater too.  However, this own wasn't so bad.  Everyone had nametags.  26 people were chosen to have letters of the alphabet on them.  Each letter had a corresponding Christmas word.  You filled out your paper and turned it in.  At the end of the night they drew winners who took home the centerpieces.

    It got people moving around, but if you didn't want to participate you could skip it.

    I completely agree.

  • I totally agree as well. I dread party games with people I hardly know. Let them mingle on their own, they're adults, they'll know how to get to know people. Otherwise, if you really want to play games, make it optional so people don't feel obligated.
