The Guessing Game

Play this fast and furious game that involves guessing at your next party, and enjoy the fun!


You'll Need:

  • Bowl
  • Names of famous people written on slips of paper (about 5 per guest)
  • one minute timer

    To Play:

    Divide your guests into two teams.

    A team member from the first team will draw a slip of paper from the bowl.

    He or she will have one minute to give clues to his or her teammates while they try to guess the name on the paper.

    If they guess the name of the famous person before one minute is up, the team gets to keep the slip of paper (as a way to keep score) and draws another.

    Keep drawing names and giving clues until the minute is over.

    When one minute is up, discard the slip of paper with the name that hasn't been guessed.

    It is now the other team's turn to pull a name from the bowl.

    Alternate who is giving the clues so that everyone (who wants one) gets a turn.

    The game is over when all the names have been drawn from the bowl, or after a specified number of rounds.

    This is a game that goes very fast, because it switches sides every minute.

    You may find that you need more slips of paper. If so, have each guest write out the names of 10 people on 10 slips of paper. That saves you from having to come up with all of them!! There may be some duplicates, but that is part of what will keep everyone ready to guess, right?!
