Cracker P2

This party game is great for dinner parties and events where everyone is sitting round a table. It also works well at Christmas when you've got Christmas crackers easily available. I first played it at a business Christmas lunch and was the rather embarrassed loser. So that's why I remember it so well… 

IT'S GOOD BECAUSE
 
- you can play it in the background and not interrupt the event too much. 
- it's also good for getting everyone engaged. 

GET READY
 
You need everyone to be wearing a hat, so either use paper hats from Christmas Crackers (hence the name), or just give everyone a normal party hat. The game is based on observation. 

PLAY! 
At the start announce the simple objective, which is to remove your hat, and not to be the last. The only rule is that no one can take their hat off until you have. Let another game or conversation take place, and as time goes by, people will take their attention off you, and even forget the game is happening. 

Eventually remove your hat and watch as people notice. Gradually the hats will come off, amidst sniggers and smirks. Some unsuspecting person (who's probably busy boring everyone with a story) will be the last to notice: this person is the loser. 

Serve up an appropriate forfeit (see our forfeits page), get the hats back on and give the loser the chance to start the next game.

I think any of these games are going to depend on the people playing them. It's fun if you think it is and stupid or boring if you go in with that kind of attitude. I would rather play a silly game than be the wet blanket at the party that makes it not fun for everyone :)
