Dinner Parties

We all look forward to a good party. For a dinner party it’s always a good idea to have a few games ready to play: they do so much to help break the ice, spice up the fun, and make the event more memorable. It’s up to you whether you just have a few games as an informal distraction, or whether you go for a carefully planned, more “full-on” party game event. Just bear in mind the type of guest who is coming to the party, and be careful not to intimidate anyone. It should all be for fun! Over the last 15 years I’ve gathered together a lot of brilliant games, (and a few less brilliant!). Here is my pick of the Top 10 party games for your dinner party:

Fee Fie Fool

This is a variation on a couple of the games here. It's a party game, for groups of more than five. It is a counting game where Fee, Fie and Fool are used instead of the numbers 7, 14, and 21. If anyone forgets to substitute the correct term, they a...
