Give your guests a surprise nut to crack! This fun party game for celebrations lightens the mood right from the start and gets all the guests involved. Especially if not all guests know each other, it is ideal for getting into conversation with each other and provides original entertainment.
Depending on how spontaneous and creative your guests are, you can prepare surprise nuts before the party or you can challenge the guests and their creativity. How? I’ll explain that in a moment! Ideas for 20 original tasks for this creative party game for celevrations can be found further down in this article!
Each party guest gets 4 walnut halves, paper and a pen. Now you ask each guest to give free rein to their creativity and imagination and write a task, a joke or another interactive idea on each of the 2 paper strips. So that the guests are not immediately overwhelmed, you give them examples and ask them to form teams to get more ideas.
Once the paper strips are labelled, fold them up and put one strip in each nut and fold the halves on top of each other. Now wrap the nut with aluminium foil to keep the halves together and collect all the surprise nuts in a bowl or hat.
This party game for celebrations can provide entertainment all evening, depending on your mood. Either you ask for volunteers to take surprise nuts, open them and complete the tasks or you introduce that whenever a certain word is said – for example the name of the host – the person has to crack a surprise nut.
To lower the inhibition threshold, you can ask the guests to get together in teams and crack nuts together. And, of course, you yourself will be the first to do it. 🙂
Tip: For smaller parties, you can also ask the guests on the invitation to come up with tasks and bring along the necessary equipment. The more creative the tasks and ideas, the more fun all the guests will have 😉
In our suggestions, a shot of alcohol is the penalty for the losers in tasks involving several players. Of course, you don’t have to give an alcoholic “punishment“! You can also simply collect penalty points and write them down on a poster next to the name as a tally sheet for all to see. The winner – or the best 3 – will then get a winner’s prize at a prize-giving ceremony towards the end of the party.
