Are you hosting a party this new years? Do you still need some ideas of stuff to get your party going? Here are some party games especially planned for New Years!

Resolutions Game:

Write as many New Year resolutions as you can think of on slips of paper. Make them as serious and silly as you like. Fold them and put them in a basket. Ask your guests to take one. If they don’t think the resolution is for them, they have to try to give it away to someone else. Have them read it aloud and guess whose resolution it really is.

Trivia of this Past Year

Look through old magazines and online to see what has happened this past year. A lot of gossip magazines also tend to put out year in review additions around this time of year. Use these facts to create a year in review trivia game. Make sure to include prizes.

Do You Know The Lyrics?

Ok how many people really know all the words to the song we all sing on New Years? For this game play the song for the group once, then ask them to all write down the lyrics. After that collect all of them and have guests come up one at a time with their guessed lyrics and sing them for the crowed. Award the winner with the most correct words and also the most creative lyrics!
Here are the real lyrics:

Auld Lang Syne

Should auld acquaintance be forgot
and never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot
and days of auld lang syne?
For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne.
We’ll tak’ a cup of kindness yet,
For auld lang syne.

Should auld acquaintance be forgot
and never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot
and the days of auld lang syne?
And here’s a hand, my trusty friend
And gie’s a hand o’thine
We’ll tak’ a cup of kindness yet,
For auld lang syne.

Noise Maker Creation

Ask guests to bring different materials that they can make noise markers with. Put everything out on a table and have a New Years noise making party. After everyone has made their noise maker they will get to use it as soon as the clock strikes midnight.

Any other party game will also work on this night. But I wanted to give you all some theme ideas in this post. Make sure you go back to my home page and check out my top five party game posts because any one of them would be a smash for this party!
