FUN AND GAMES
The internet is a great source of party game apps. Play Heads Up on your iPhone using formatted answer decks or one you design yourself. Make a homemade version of “Ex Libris,” where everyone writes a fictional first (or last) sentence to a book the host chooses; the real line is shuffled in and people guess which it is. A more surreal game involves giving every guest a secret sentence they must work into conversation without being detected (for example, “Does anyone mind if I take a shower?”).
