#4 Party Games
You need to keep your guests entertained and this means coming up with some great party games.
Games can be used to get a party started, as well as calm guests before you serve the delicious birthday buffet.
There are many ways that you can add an emoji twist to your party games;
- Escape the Emoji – creating your own emoji enemy and set the group a task of having to escape its clutches. You can do this as an obstacle course in which the group must not lose contact with each other (they can hold hands or each other’s clothing etc).
- Emoji ‘What’s the time?’ Game – you may remember this game. One person is ‘it’ – in this case the emoji (create an emoji mask for them to wear) whilst the other guests line up at the starting point. They all ask in chorus ‘what time is it emoji?’ to which ‘It’ answers – two o’clock, 4 o’clock etc. Depending on the number given this is how many steps forward the line of guests take. Continue to do this until the emoji answers ‘time to capture you all!’ and then tries to catch as many guests as possible with a tap on the shoulder! Great for wearing guests out at the end of the party.
