Our ukulele group is having its seasonal dinner at a local pub tomorrow and I'd like a few polite, non-drinking* grown up (-ish) games. So far I have:
- make a self-supporting Santa beard out of a single sheet of A4 paper.
- one song to the tune of another**
- Swanee kazoo**

A few more would be good. All ideas most welcome :-)

* Really. We prefer to choose how p1ssed we get. Or not, if driving.
** These taken from I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue, BBC Radio 4's "antidote to panel games".

Thanks

I don't know a name for this. Everyone is given a lot of pieces of paper and writes names on them (alive, dead, real or fiction). Fold over, put in hat. Each person is paired with a partner across the table. Turns last one minute. When it's your turn you pull out a name, then describe it so that your partner guesses it: but you mustn't use any proper names, or adjectives derived from proper names. If they guess it you can take another name. If it's hopeless you can put a name back and take another. 'Rhymes with' is not allowed. When the minute's up you keep any names your partner has guessed. At the end, the pair with most names is the winner.

Also: pass the parcel, but instead of sweets in between the layers there are forfeits (e.g. hop all round the room, sing a song).

Thanks for these: we did "In the manner of..." where the victim, er, volunteer has to guess the chosen adverb by getting the others to do an action "in the manner of". Such as "Mike: drink your drink " - brilliant! Song title pictionary. Some of the "one song to the tunes of anothers" were excellent: tears down the face funny. Headbands where you have to figures out who you are by asking the rest (I was useless at figuring out I was Noah). Oh, and we performed a brief pantomime. Excellent fun was had by all :-)

"Lost in translation" Take a well known song in English and feed it into an online translator to your chosen language. Take that translation and translate into a third language. Translate that back to English and ask people to guess the song.

You can use any language or as many languages as you like to get the weirdest version for the game.
