New Year Party Game Ideas

Plan a rocking New year party 2015 on the new years eve and make it a memorable day for everyone.
1. Cotton ball blitz

Cotton balls
Two bowls for each player
To Play

Put two bowls in front of each player on the ground. One should be filled with cotton balls; the other should be empty. Ask players to put a dab of Vaseline on their noses. Set a timer for one minute, and Ready, Set, Go. The player who can move the most cotton balls from one bowl to the other using only their nose wins.

2. Ribbon dance

Ribbon cut into 3 foot lengths To Play

First, there should be one ribbon for every two players. (Make sure you have an even number of players.) In your hand, hold a bunch of the ribbons from the middle so the ends dangle loose. Have every participant grab the end of one ribbon. Let go of the ribbons, and the two people who are holding onto the same ribbon become dance partners. This fun icebreaker helps mix up the dance floor and makes for some funny pairings (two male dancers/two female dancers.).

3. Knowing knees

To Play

First, blindfold all the male players. Then, have the female players sit down in chairs in a line. Each of the male players must then go along the line of female players and try to identify them only by touching their knees. Have them write their guesses down on a sheet of paper, and the player with the most correct answers wins.

4. New years secret stash

An assortment of small objects
Sheets of paper with each guests name
To Play

As each guest enters, the host hands them an ordinary object (hairclip, bouncy ball, KoolAid packet, etc.) The player must keep the object on their person but out of concealed areas (like pockets or purses). Throughout the night, they have to try to hide the objects as best they can (in hands, hair, etc). At the end of the night, players write down each others objects on a sheet of paper (with all the guests names), and the one with the most correct answers wins.

5. New years champagne race

Two bottles of champagne
Champagne flutes
To Play

Have players sit at a table, and give each one a champagne flute and a teaspoon. Set bowls filled with champagne in front of them. (One bowl for 2 3 players.) The object of the game is for players to use the teaspoon to fill their glasses with champagne. The first one to do so, stands up, taps his or her glass with a teaspoon, and gets to give a toast for the New Year.

6. Human bingo

Bingo Sheets with a characteristic in each box
Writing utensils
To Play

This fun icebreaker have guests mixing right when they enter the door. As people arrive, give each one a Bingo sheet and writing utensil. Each box on the sheet should have a phrase describing one or more of the guests (i.e. married at age 23, travelled Europe during college, rock climber, lived in Manhattan). As players mingle, they find the people with these characteristics and have each person sign off the spot on the Bingo card. The first player to get Bingo wins.

7. Find your song

Slips of paper
Popular song lyrics
To Play

On long slips of paper, write out a line or two from a popular song. It might be a recent hit (like I kissed a girl and I liked it) or something related to New Years (like Should old acquaintance be forgot And auld lang syne?). Cut the slip of paper in half, so part of the lyric is on one half and part of the lyric is on the other half. Hand out slips of paper to each guest as they arrive, and at some point in the evening, announce that each person has to find the other guest with the rest of their song. The first three couples to find each other win a prize.

8. Kiss countdown

Several bags of Hershey Kisses To Play

Hand each female guest 5 7 Hershey Kisses as they enter. Tell all the guests as they enter that the object of the game is for the male guests to get as many kisses as they can. The females are the only ones who can give kisses, so this will result in a lot of competition on the part of the male guests. There may be serenading, duels to the death, and so on. At the end of the night, the male guest with the most kisses wins a fabulous prize. (A $20 25 gift card or a case of good beer would create some fierce competition.) The fun twist? The male winner chooses the female winner (most likely the one who gave him the most kisses), so this encourages competition among the women as well.

9. Pass the new years hat

New Years Hat To Play

Have a group of 10+ guests sit in a circle, and give one player a New Years themed hat. The object of the game is to pass the hat from the head of one player to the next without dropping the hand or using hands. If a player drops the hat, he or she is out of the circle, and the last player left wins the New Years hat.

10. Shot roulette

20 25 shot glasses
Variety of alcoholic and non alcoholic liquid
Empty champagne bottle
Gift cards
To Play

In a circle on a large table, arrange 20 25 shot glasses. Fill each shot glass with either an alcoholic or non alcoholic liquid (i.e. tequila, whiskey, vodka, peppermint schnapps, chocolate milk, eggnog, coffee, orange juice, milk). Make sure to fill a few of the glasses with some odd edible liquids (i.e. melted butter, olive oil, soy sauce, ranch dressing). Like the game Spin the Bottle, have player spin an empty champagne bottle in the center of the circle. Whichever shot the bottle points at, the player must drink. (No exceptions. Except maybe allergies.) To sweeten the deal, put a few small gift cards in the glasses. This might encourage a couple of the guests who dont want to swallow melted butter To Play
