When it comes to New Year’s Eve…I’m usually super lame. Lame, as in go-to-sleep-at-10 pm-and-do-nothing-remotely-festive-lame. Christmas wears me right out and I’m pretty much comatose for a month following. But, since you crazy ladies like to party hard, I’ve got some super-fun group games for you!
One person is chosen to be “it” and leaves the room. While they are out, everyone agrees on one adverb. Let me remind you…adverbs end in -ly, such as: quietly, annoyingly, suspiciously, sleepily, etc. Once the adverb has been chosen, “it” is invited back in and has to try and figure out the secret adverb. It is figured out by asking different group members to act out certain verbs in the form of their adverb, until they can guess what it is. Don’t tune out, I promise…it’s easy and seriously hilarious! Okay, so for example…let’s say the group chose the word “grumpily.” That IS a word, right? It sounds weird, all of the sudden. So, “it” comes back in the room and walks up to one of the group members and says the verb, “run.” So, that group member has to run in a grumpy manner. If “it” doesn’t know the secret adverb, he/she tries another verb with a different group member, like “cartwheel.” The group member then precedes to do a grumpy cartwheel…don’t ask me how. But, that’s the fun of it! Once, “it” figures it out, someone else becomes “it” and a different adverb is acted out.
