Christmas Game Ideas

Christmas game ideas…make some new Christmas day traditions this year!  Don’t think that opening up all those presents marks the end of your Christmas day. To really feel the Christmas vibe, throw in a few games to feel that Christmas spirit! If you’re having a lot of people over for Christmas then you can try playing the hat game! Give every one of your guests a Santa hat. These come really cheap at any novelty store. You’ll notice that as your room fills up with people in silly Santa hats, the festive spirit of Christmas will be felt with more vibrancy.

But, this isn’t the main focus of the game. As the night wears on and everyone starts getting less conscious of their hats, the point is to not be the last person wearing the hat. After a while there will be at least one person so enveloped into whatever he or she is doing that he or she will forget the hat! This person ends up as the loser. This game can be played over and over during the rest of your holiday activities.

You can also try playing some cool memory games. Make everyone pay close attention on each and every gift that you open on the day itself. Once all presents have been kept away, ask everyone to try and recall every present you received. You have to note to people that they must only remember the gifts opened on that day and not any other. This is a great way to teach kids how to pay attention to everything around them with the presents they get. This is so because children love reliving the feeling they get when opening all their presents on Christmas. This is also a convenient way of teaching them not to focus to much on their own gifts and to pay attention to what’s happening around them.

If you have a few minutes to spare before supper, then you can also ask everyone to play the “guess me” game. Get yourself some big, fluffy and long winter socks that are thick and reach at least calf-length. Put a few things in these socks and be sure to have the same kinds of items in every sock. Also don’t forget the theme of Christmas when picking out your things. Try including some small décor, tape, a pine cone, Hershey’s chocolate kiss and other stuff. Now make them feel the socks (or sock, if you want to take your time), then take note of their guesses. Also don’t forget to tell them how many things they are feeling for in the sock. The one who wins gets one of the socks and all the contents.

If you happen to have a few ‘struggling performers’ as guests on Christmas, then play some classic “Christmas Idol”. Like the TV show, set up an area for your would-be judges and assign teams of two or solo if you want, to sing a Christmas song. Remind them to  …

Unique and Personal Baby Shower Themes

Themes for parties tumble in all directions, but a baby shower begins with one common denominator, babies. Sit down with a notebook and pen, start writing down words that come to mind when the word “baby” is spoken. The mind conjures up images that provide a multitude of ideas. Babies: lullaby, rocking, sweet, gentle, tiny animals, storybooks and their characters, downy soft, sunny, silly, and whimsical are a few words associated with babies. Add to the list of words specific things you know about mom and dad to be. Perhaps they love the outdoors, gardening, camping, or hiking. It could be a family that finds music and playing instruments to be an important part of their life. A sports family with riotous good humor who believe nothing is better on a hot July night than going to a baseball game. Incorporate what you know about the family with words associated with baby to come up with a very personal theme.

A Sunny Lullaby Baby Shower Theme

A family that listens to Mozart and plays Gershwin on the piano would find a lullaby theme music to their ears. Choose a second word from the list that brings to mind color or touch such as soft or sunny. A Sunny Lullaby Shower would be personal and charming. A Sunny Lullaby Shower brings to mind all shades of yellow, soft creams, and if you know if the baby is a boy or girl you could bring blue or pink into the palette. Start jotting down ideas like having the cake decorated with a cradle in the middle a huge smiling sun and tiny musical notes in all the colors of the palette chosen. Decorate around the theme using suns, babies, and musical notes. If games will be included borrow the premises of the game show “Name That Tune” using lullabies or nursery songs instead of popular tunes. While serving cake and punch play soft lullabies or classical music suited for a baby shower. Music stores carry loads of music for babies or children.

A Fairy Baby Shower

Gardeners and outdoorsmen would find a garden fairy shower to be enchanting and whimsical. The colors of nature come to mind with thoughts of garden fairies: greens, yellows, lavenders, and the iridescent flash of wings. A shower held outdoors on a deck, patio, or even in or near a garden would be a perfect setting for this theme. All things small and botanical could be used. Pressed flowers found at hobby stores like Michael’s could be used to decorate invitations. Fresh flower arrangements with tiny fairies perched among the flowers would create a darling centerpiece. Fairy cakes and nectar (punch) could be part of the refreshments served. There are books galore relating the tales and legends of the wee folk. With a little research A Fairy Baby Shower would make a charming theme.

Zoo Babies Shower

Think about the joys visiting a zoo brings to little ones. Take the wild animal theme and tame it down …

How To Throw A Ben 10 Birthday Party – The Story – Ben 10

Ben 10 Story behind:

What’s better for a 10 year old boy than being able to turn into a superhero…being able to turn into several superheroes, of course!

It all starts while on a camping trip with his grandfather Max and his cousin Gwen. Ben discovers a strange device, the Omnitrix, which locks itself on his wrist. With the Omnitrix watch, Ben has the ability to morph into bizarre aliens like Heatblast, Upgrade, Grey Matter, Stinkfly, Ghostfreak, Razorjaws, Wildmutt, Fourarms, XLR8 and Diamondhead. Each alien has its own set of special abilities that Ben can use, while at the same time still maintaining his 10-year-old personality. With these powers, he can play the part of a superhero, righting wrongs, saving the world and getting into some good old-fashioned kid-style trouble.

The path of the super hero however, proves to be trickier than he first imagined, especially with the evil alien warlord Vilgax pursuing him relentlessly to retrieve the Omnitrix and gain these great powers Ben has found.

When he’s not tangling with Vilgax’s cronies or other earthbound villains, Ben is travelling the country in his Grandpa Max’s van; a good-humoured, open-minded and unsuspecting mentor who wants to put a little more excitement into his grandson’s life by taking him on a cross-country summer vacation. Ben and Grandpa are joined on their road trip by Ben’s cousin Gwen, who is smart, level-headed and not exactly thrilled to be along for the ride. Still, as the voice of reason, she’s invaluable in times of chaos, which is pretty much all the time.

Where Can I Download Or Play Rummikub Online?

Admit it there’s been a few games you’ve heard of at least once in your life, and the name alone made you wonder what in the world the game was about. Like Rummy, Kalooki, or the age old Kick The Can (no I wasn’t born in the 50s, but I do have a mom). But even though these games sounded odd at first, they were actually a lot of fun and quite addicting. I’m sure you can think of a few more from your time as well. When I first heard about Rummikub I was very confused as to what it was, let alone how to say it. Apparently no one really knows how its supposed to be pronounced, everyone has a different pronunciation, who knows what’s right! Here are a few examples of the way different people think its pronounced:

Rummy – Cube
Rummy – Cub
Rummy – Coob
Rumm-I-Cube
Roomy-Cube

Other people absolutely insist that the way you say it depends on your location in the world. So, I guess in this matter, it doesn’t matter how you say it, as long as you’re in the right country when you’re saying it!

The point of Rummikub isn’t the pronunciation, the point is that it’s a game and it’s a game you can play online when you need a break from every day life, which is always a nice thing huh?!?

“Rummikub is a tile-based game for two, three or four players. It won the 1980 Spiel des Jahres award (German Game of the Year) and the Spel van het Jaar award (the Dutch Game of the Year) in 1983. Also, known as Rummy-O or Rummycube.”

It sort of reminds me of Mahjong, Sudoku, and Rummy all mixed together. Nonetheless, it’s a fun game to play and I think everyone should give it a try! If you’re like me, and you enjoy playing games online here are a few sites which you can download it and play it whenever you want to! I haven’t had much success when it comes to finding sites where you can actually play this game, but I’ll still list the ones you can go to for downloads as well as sites for other info!

Bunco Theme Party — How to Play Bunco, Number of Players, Free Bunco Scorecard

One of the best things about Bunco is that you can easily host a Bunco Theme Party at your home without worrying about the skill level of your guests. A person can learn how to play in about 5 minutes flat.

How to Play

Bunco is a dice game played with 3 tables of four people each. At each table, set out:

3 dice
1 blank piece of paper for scorekeeping
1 Bunco scorecard for each player (buy pads or make your own)
A couple of pens

Before play begins, each player contributes $5.00.

Each Bunco game consists of 6 rounds and 3 games are usually played.  In each Bunco round, all players are rolling for the same number so for example, during round one, all players are rolling 3 dice to see how many ones they can roll.

When the host rings a bell, Bunco play begins at all 3 tables.  The person sitting across from you is your partner for the current round. Together you are team partners. Player one begins rolling and continues until they no longer roll ones (or whatever round you are player).  Somebody keeps score at each table and records the number of dice rolled by each player.

Who Wins

Play goes around the table while the scorekeeper keeps track.  Players are trying to achieve one of two things:

A Team Bunco — When team partners are the first among all tables to reach 21 and yell “Bunco!”

A Natural Bunco — When a single player rolls 3 dice that match the round currently being rolled.  For example, if the group is currently rolling for ones, a player rolls 3 ones or if the group is currently rolling for fives, a player rolls 3 fives.

At the end of each round, the scorekeeper at each table announces the winning team.  Your team wins the round if:

You were the first in the group to reach 21 and yelled “Bunco!”
You did not quite make it to 21 but got the highest score at your table or
One of you rolled a Natural Bunco

The winning teams move on to the next table while the losing team stays where they are.  All players keep their scorecards with them throughout the night, recording a “Win” or a “Loss” after each round.

When 6 rounds are played, game one is finished and game two begins by rolling for ones again.

Dividing the Pot

At the end of 3 Bunco games, the host collects the Bunco scorecards and awards prizes.  You can divide the pot in a number of ways but this is most common:

The person with the Most Natural Buncos gets 40%
The person with the Most Wins gets 40%
The person with the Most Losses gets 20% (this keeps people from giving up half way through)

Example: 12 People x $5.00 = $60.00

Most Naturals gets $24.00
Most Wins gets $24.00
Most Losses gets $12.00

Bunco is a great game to play at a party …

Christmas Party Game — Pin the Beard on Santa

Christmas Party Game — Pin the Beard on Santa can take an old game and make it like new!

Birthday parties are made more fun with a variety of parlor games. On the other hand, Christmas parties, while just as festive, seems to have little parlor games to boast. For a change you can set up a Christmas game called  “Pin the Beard on Santa” !

The props needed for this fun game is not difficult to find at all. First, you need to get your hand on a cardboard cutout of Santa’s face. It should neither be too large nor too small — just big enough for everyone to see his jolly looks. You can easily find these at your nearest party supplies store or wherever Christmas decorative items are available.

Playing “Pin the Beard on Santa” requires everyone to try to affix the beard on Santa’s face — which means the beard is not there right at the start. Once you got a cardboard face of Santa, cut the beard off. But don’t throw away that beard; you might want to tape it back after the game, if you intend to use the cardboard face to decorate your home with.

There are many creative ways in which you can create the beard. You can sculpt foam into the shape of a beard, just the right size for Santa’s cardboard face. You can also used crumpled sheets of white paper and pack them together. Or if you want you can create Santa’s beard out of a wad of cotton. Whatever materials you intend to use, glue them on a thick cardboard with a double-sided adhesive tape at the back. You can easily peel the backing of the tape off right before the game. The number of Santa’s cardboard face and beard depends on the number of players competing. If you got 5 players, you need 5 cardboard faces and 5 beards to go with them.

Playing “Pin the Beard on Santa” is just the same as playing “Pin the Tail on the Donkey”, same rules but different set of props. Affix Santa’s cardboard faces next to each other on a flat surface and line up the players a few feet in front of them. Hand them their respective beards, blindfold them and spin them around a few times. On your cue, the players will start trying to pin the beard in hand right where they belong — on Santa’s jolly cardboard face.

Of course, you can always come up with your own version of the game. If you can get your hands on a full-sized Santa cutout, then your players will definitely have more fun trying to pin different Santa parts on a life-sized Santa. They can attempt to pin his boots, buttons on his clothes, his nose, belt — you are only limited by your imagination.

For adult players, you can spice up the game a bit by pinning the chest hair on Santa. You can construct your …
