  • Sample Games

    These are just 4 of our 150+ games contained in the book!

    Sock Wrestling

    Category: Teenagers/Young Adults

    Each participant wears a sock on each foot, ideally the same type of sock (crew, tube, no-show) that everyone else wears. You can play with many people, though the fewer you have the more strategic the game. You are out when both of your socks are completely off of your feet.

    Omnikin Volleyball

    Category: Big Group

    Omnikin is a Canadian company that manufactures larger-than-life balls for use in physical education classes. The balls range from one foot in diameter to four feet, and are made of a rubber bladder encased within a tough nylon out layer. You can play endless games with these things, our favorite being volleyball.

    Who Am I?

    Category: Dinner

    This is a great group game that keeps everyone involved and can be used as an icebreaker. To play, write the names of famous people on small pieces of paper. Place the names in a bowl and have each person pick a name without looking at the name. Each person should hold/tape the name on their forehead (or back) so others can see it, but they cannot. Players roam around collecting clues from other players to figure out who their person is.

    Cheese Heads

    Category: Kids 6-12

    The Cheese Head game is one of the funniest games imaginable. Take a group of people and offer them a thin slice of cheese (Kraft Singles work well) to place on their forehead. Upon "go", each participant tries to wiggle their head, tilt their neck, and contort their face to get the cheese to move towards their mouth. The first person to eat their cheese wins.
