  1. Charades:
    Split into two teams. One person acts out a word or phrase without speaking while their team tries to guess what it is within a set time limit.
  2. Pictionary:
    Just like charades, but this time you draw the word or phrase on a large pad of paper while your team tries to guess.
  3. Scavenger Hunt:
    Create a list of items hidden around your house. Split the players into teams and give them the list. The first team to find all items wins.
  4. Murder Mystery:
    Prior to the party, prepare a murder mystery script. Assign each guest a character. During the party, guests play out their roles and try to solve the mystery.
  5. Bingo:
    Give each player a bingo card and have someone call out random numbers. If a player has that number on their card, they mark it off. The first player to mark off a whole row (horizontally, vertically, or diagonally) shouts “Bingo!” and wins.
  6. Musical Chairs:
    Arrange chairs in a circle, one less than the number of players. Play music as players circle the chairs. When the music stops, players must sit down; the player without a chair is out. Remove one chair each round until one player remains.
  7. Twister:
    Set out the Twister mat. Spin the spinner and call out the body part and color that the arrow points to. The players must place the called-out body part on the called-out color, leading to much twisting and laughing.
  8. Karaoke:
    Set up a karaoke machine or app. Let guests take turns singing their favorite songs while others cheer them on.
  9. Balloon Pop:
    Fill balloons with small prizes or notes containing fun challenges. Guests pop the balloons and must claim the prize or perform the challenge.
  10. Indoor Bowling:
    Set up plastic or inflatable pins at the end of a hallway. Each player takes turns rolling a soft ball to try to knock over as many pins as possible.
  11. Limbo:
    Hold a pole at a start height. Each player must pass under the pole while leaning backwards. Lower the pole after each round. If a player touches the pole or falls, they’re out. The last player standing wins.
  12. Board Games:
    Choose popular board games like Monopoly or Clue. Split into groups and start playing. You could even have a tournament with different games.
  13. Dance Off:
    Choose a variety of music genres. Guests take turns dancing while others rate them. The person with the highest total score wins.
  14. Guess Who:
    Make a list of famous people or characters and assign one to each player (without telling them who they are). Players ask yes/no questions to determine their assigned person.
  15. Tug of War:
    Divide guests into two teams. Each team tries to pull the rope across a marked line in their direction. The team that manages to pull the rope across their line first wins.
  16. Ping Pong Toss:
    Arrange cups in a pyramid shape on a table. Give players ping pong balls to toss into the cups from a distance. Each cup could have a prize or task associated with it.
  17. Indoor Obstacle Course:
    Use furniture and other household items to create an obstacle course. Time each participant as they go through the course. The fastest time wins.
  18. Pass the Parcel:
    Wrap a small gift in multiple layers of paper. Players pass the parcel around while music plays. When the music stops, the person holding the parcel unwraps a layer. The person who unwraps the final layer wins the gift.
  19. Stacking Challenge:
    Using plastic cups or blocks, set a timer and see who can build the highest stack within the time limit. If the stack falls, the player must start again.
  20. Blindfolded Makeup Challenge:
    Divide guests into pairs and give each pair a set of makeup items. One person in each pair is blindfolded and must apply makeup to their partner. The pair with the most creative (or hilarious) result wins.
