Theme Party Games

Theme parties and party games have been around forever, or at least as long as humans didn’t have to worry about where the next meal would come from. So with the rise of convenience stores came inventive new ways for people to amuse themselves by gathering together and dressing up in 80’s spandex. I’ve been to a few of these in the past, and when I had three in three consecutive weekends, I felt that I should try to add a little to the festivities – but not by doing an especially good job of representing the premise. I’m too lazy at costumes – be it a Rock Star Party or Death Party – I don’t make a very good Fred Durst (please no e-mails… I know he’s not dead –  it was a “Dress As Someone You Would Beat to Death Party”).  So I thought I would make some party games based on the party themes.  And since none of them got used, I also thought I would share them on the internet.

At the Pimps & Ho’s Party, everyone got too drunk to play Pimp & Madam Boticelli. Considering this is a game that “requires the players to have a good knowledge of biographical details of famous people,” proceed with caution. If you don’t know that Sally Stanford was a 1940’s San Franciscan madam, then this may not be the game for you.

Despite the flannel, it was too cold to play Grunge Charades. Also, everyone got too drunk. And someone threw the paper slips in the fire pit.

At the Quentin Tarantino Character Party, no one was really in the mood to play Tarantino Celebrity after everyone showed up as The Gimp.  Reasonably, everyone got too drunk. Things kind of went down hill from there…
