Quick ideas for an office party

Before the party starts you will want to have your props, questions and the prize certificates ready. Names can be filled in on these printable employee award certificates on your computer or just by hand. These employee awards can be customized to read whatever you want.

Office Scavenger Hunt: This is a fairly simple game, which nevertheless can be quite fun. Get a caller to go in front of the room, and call out the names of various items, like:

•red lipstick
•black high heel shoe
•$5 bill
•red swingline stapler
•a photo of a dog
•15 pennies
•any kind of hat
•something from a foreign country
Whoever runs up first with any of the items gets a prize.

Famous Movie Lines: Before the party, write down famous bits of quotes from well-known movies, e.g. "I'll be back." – Terminator, "These aren't the droids you're looking for." -Star Wars. You can go a little more "racy" depending on your office type. During the party, read out these quotes, with the guests having to guess which movie it is from. Whoever guesses right gets a point. After every quote has been read, whoever has the most points becomes the winner. To make it more challenging, extra points can be given if they can name the character, actor or actress who said it.

Statue: Explain the rules of the game once the guests arrive. One person has to be chosen as the statue. At a certain point of the party, this person must turn into a statue, in the middle of whatever he or she may be doing. As the other people begin noticing, they too turn into statues. Whoever notices what’s going on last becomes the ‘statue’ for the next round. This game can be quite hilarious, especially when people have to turn into statues in the middle of saying something.

Liar, Liar: Let the guests gather around either a table or just in a circle, and apoint someone as the score-keeper. Each person tells one statement about themselves that is true, and two that are untrue. As each player finishes his/her turn, the others must vote on which statement was the truthful one. The truthful statement is then disclosed, with the player given a point for each incorrect guess. After all players finish, the person who ends up with the highest score can be presented with an award certificate that reads: ‘The Biggest Liar in the Office!’ Award Certificate Download.

Transferring the Cotton Balls: This is a hilarious game, and before long everybody will be razzing and laughing at the proceedings. You will require 2 buckets, 2 chairs, some cotton balls, a large serving spoon, a blind fold, and a timer.

Place the two chairs about five feet apart, both in the same direction. Put a bucket in each of those chairs. Put the cotton balls in one bucket. Blindfold the first player, turning him/her around 2-3 times and placing him/her in front of the chair that has the cotton balls. Give the player the spoon, placing it at the edge of the bucket that has the cotton balls, in order to give the player an indication where it is, and setting the timer according to a specified time, say about 2 minutes.

As soon as you say ‘go’, the blindfolded player must start using the spoon to scoop the cotton balls up and putting them into the empty bucket, on the other chair. After each person finishes his/her turn, count the cotton balls that were actually put into the empty bucket. After everybody has had their turn, the one who could successfully transfer the most cotton balls is declared the winner.

Although this game may not sound like anything much, however, it can be a hilarious sight to see the blindfolded player carefully transporting the often empty spoon to the other bucket and gingerly putting empty air into it.
