A good host should provide entertainment for party guests, and celebratory games are the most common of the choices. However, not every game is suitable for an anniversary party. (Do Read: 6 Most Fun And Popular Wedding Games For All Age Groups). Anniversary games should be fun, engaging and exciting, not just for the guest of honour, but also for everyone in attendance. The games must include everyone yet force no one of participation. The following games have been subdivided into 4 categories for the very same purpose. Given below are a few games, tailor-made for such an event.
The trivia contest game falls in this category. Make a list of casual questions about yourself as a couple, such as- 'Where did you first meet or when did he propose?'. Prepare a game show style presentation and choose one among the guest to host the trivia. Gather everyone around and ask your host to shoot the questions one by one. Gift prizes await the winners of the trivia contest.
There are numerous game choices in this category, we will be briefly discussing a few.
The catch of the game is no lip movement. Blindfold the wife and ask her to find her husband among all the men in the room based on touch and olfactory functions. At no point of time talking is allowed and do not forget to supervise the blindfolded woman to keep her from getting hurt.
The game can be played by blindfolding the husband as well.
Have a number of dance styles written in small chits of paper and place them altogether in an enclosed box with an open top. Keep appropriate electronics ready to go with the dance and make enough space for the couples to dance freely. The couples will have to choose a dancing style from the box blindly and dance to the respective tune.
The best performer will not only win the crowd, but also prizes from the host.
Put together songs of varieties, such as- love songs, upbeat songs, country songs, ballads and slow rock, and ask the couple on stage to present their respective karaoke version.
Give them some time and hymn with them to make the contest exciting and energetic.
