Christmas party games can be a blast and when you are having a Christmas party it is always a good idea to include a game of some kind. Here are ten fun ones you can consider playing at your next event.

Contra – Sometimes nothing beats a simple side scroller where all you do is run to the right and shoot. Contra is the classic NES title that translates surprisingly well to Blackberry. Be warned this game is tough but that’s part of what makes it so great!

This shot should be Combat archery to a drive. Firstly, the front foot should stride out towards the pitch of the ball. The head should be positioned over the front leg. The bat should then strike the ball, the same way a front foot drive would be played. The only difference is instead of playing through the line of the ball with a follow through, the bat stops dead, played with dead hands. This stops the momentum of the ball. The bat should be angled down. This will push the ball down into the ground instead of popping up for a catch.

But the most interesting and famous game played at the hen’s party is passing of the bouquet. This is pretty easy to play as a group of people will sit in a circle and a bouquet will be passed. The music will be played at the same time by someone who has his or her eyes covered so that cheating stays away for good. The music will be stopped at any time and the person with the bouquet at that point of time will get eliminated. The game will end with a single winner.

When kids did have toys to play with, they were often meant for more than just play. Toys and games of the time had educational value too. Tag, swimming, and ball games developed physical abilities like speed and strength. These prepared children for physical work as adults. Less physical games like blocks and peg games improved problem solving and analytical skills.

The mind is a complex instrument. It has the ability to perform a variety of complex tasks in milliseconds. Yet the simplest actions can become instant nightmares. Take public speaking for instance. Sometimes words and sentences flow easily from one topic to another, and then a severe case of lockjaw occurs. Why does that seem to happen at the worst possible moment? Pressure. That one word sums up why most people fail to perform in intense situations – like attempting a shot at a monster buck. So what will counteract the self-defeating effect of one’s mind?

Truth and dare is another popular game at the hens’ party. It can also be one of the most interesting games because you can ask the other person to do whatever you want. This game should be played at the beginning of the party because it is a good way to set the tone of the evening.
