Party Games: The Best Game Ever

The name of this game really does not lie, it might just be the best game ever! :) To begin this game, split your party guests into 2 teams. It's important to have an even number of kids on each team. To better explain this game, I will use 2 made up teams: team red and team blue. Have your teams sit in separate areas of the room - maybe one team on each end of the room with the animator in the middle.
Here is a free printable that I've created for parties, note this sheet was created for a party with 10 guests (5 on each team). If you have more party guests, you will need to come up with a few more categories. The animator should explain that he/she will read out a category (like who has the longest hair) and each team sends up a representative who they think can win the category. It is important to mention that each player can only represent their team twice during the game so they must think strategically as they choose their representatives.

Depending on the age of the children, it can be helpful to have a helper with each team, to guide the kids in their decisions and ease any conflicts. Once team red and team blue have chosen a representative, the representatives will come to the middle, with the animator and complete the task or evaluate if they really are the best in that category. If team blue's player is the best at the given category, team blue is awarded a point and vice versa. The game continues like this until every player has represented their team twice and the team with the most points wins!

1. Print out my free printable of categories. (NOTE: if your party has more than 10 guests you will need to come up with more categories. The number of categories = the number of party guests!)
2. Split your party guests into 2 teams.
3. Explain that you will read out a task/category and each team will have to send up a player that they think can best perform in that category, however every player can only represent their team twice throughout the game.
4. Once each team sends up a representative, evaluate which player really is the best in the category and award a point to the team of the winning player.
5. The team with the most points wins!

See you tomorrow!
