What are some of your favorite party games for work?  I need to come up with 1 game for my office to play.  In the past we've played bingo, dirty santa, and guess the candy bar name game. I need some ideas people! Please help !

I've done "name that holiday tune" - I clipped the songs using iTunes, whipped up a quick powerpoint to present the game and people had to work together at their tables to write down the name and artist.

 

I've also done "holiday movie trivia" and I picked some super obscure questions to make it difficult. 

 

We've also played "musical gifts" - pick a "gift" from the centerpiece, and move it around the table. When the music stops, if you're holding it, you're out. Keep going until there's two people left and whoever is the last one holding it wins. You could also do this with gift wrapped items - play the music, person unwraps one layer, and whoever gets the final layer to unwrap wins.


GO BRUINS!

I cant remember the name of it but everyone brings and inexpensive gift and hem pull numbers. One by one people select a gift or can steal a gift that is already been open for themselves.  I want to say it was Japanese Christmas exchange or something like that.

That's pretty much a white elephant gift exchange.

 

Also how many people are at your holiday party? The games I've had to come up with are for about 70 people. It's different when it's just my small team of 8, where we usually do a white elephant.

Have a decorating contest. Best door or cubicle ? Play holiday bingo or name that tune.

We've done holiday trivia, using an app on our phones to "click in" with the answers.

Have everyone send in a picture of a Christmas decoration at their house, and have people guess whose it is.

We've also done white elephant many times. But honestly, I despise that game and never participate.

We also did something with wrapping paper once... But I can't remember that that was. I'll have to keep thinking about that one.

Or you could do an after hours office scavenger hunt. Something silly and fun

In addition to what others above have done we've done the following:

  • Best Christmas socks or outfit contest
  • They loved when we do the gift exchange with the Right Family Christmas. You can google the story. One person reads the story and every time you hear right or left that's the way you pass the gift. Once the story is over, you open whatever gift is in your hand.
  • Christmas Family Feud. Whichever team makes it to bonus round has first pick at gifts.

I forgot about the right game and will be adding the Christmas Family Feud to my list.
