Get-togethers are where inhibitions melt away and friendships are made. While many would agree that alcohol is the simplest icebreaker, it should not be your only playing card. We share three out-of-the-box games that will keep your family and friends entertained.
LIKES & DISLIKES: People love to talk about themselves! Get everyone to write down their likes and dislikes on paper; fold the answers and put it in a bowl. The person who picks a paper up will have to guess who it describes. For every wrong answer, the person downs a shot. SARDINES: This is a twist on the popular hide-and-seek game, and is especially fun if your home is spacious or full of nooks and crannies. First, minutes to hide. The next individual person, and join him/her in the chosen hiding spot. Soon, there will be plenty of people who are trying not to laugh while crammed into the same closet, bathroom or space under the bed. Those hiding should try to remain
INNER CIRCLE CHARADES: You know the rules of charades. Now re-enact a scenario or story that only the people in your clique know. Close friends will laugh over funny memories, and newbies will learn more about the rest.
