Here are some party games for people who want to have a fun time at a party and don't want to drink. These games are a great way to be social and can be fun for all ages.
Blind Balloon Game
In this game, one person is blind folded and everyone else playing is given balloons. Everyone stands in a big circle around the blindfolded person to keep them from wandering off into unsafe areas of the room. A big sack is placed in one part of the circle. The blindfolded player spins in a circle and everyone throws their balloons into the circle. The blindfolded person has to find as many balloons as they can and put them in the sack within 2 minutes (more or less time is fine too as long as it is the same for every player.) The other players can help guide the blindfolded player to the balloons and the sack by shouting things at them. After the set amount of time has expired, the balloons in the sack are counted and the number is written down along with the players name. At the end of the game, the player who got the most balloons in the sack wins!
Everyone at a party gets a unique page of stickers. These could be stickers of different types or colors for each individual person or plain stickers that each player draws or writes a unique thing onto like a special symbol or initials. Each player places one of their sticker onto a poster board and writes their name next to it to keep track of whose stickers belong to who and to make sure everyones stickers are unique. The goal of the game is to stick as many of your stickers on to other people with out them noticing. If someone notices you sticking a sticker on them they give the sticker back and can stick one on you. If you find a sticker on you, take it off and put it on the poster board next to the person's name who put the sticker on you. At the end of the game everyone inspects themselves and each other for stickers, all the stickers are put on the board and then tallied up. The person who managed to get the most stickers on other people without them noticing wins!
Social Scavenger Hunt
To have a Social Scavenger Hunt everybody at a party gets a number of slips of paper. On that paper they write scavenger hunt challenges about themselves that they want the other people to discover.
The hosts of the party can provide a list of examples.
For example, if it is a New Years Eve party, people could write:
Find a person who has a New Years Eve Resolution. What is their name and their New Years Resolution?
Other examples might be:
Find a person who is a business owner. What is their name and their business?
Find a person who has a cat. What is their name and the cat's name?
Find a person who plays an instrument. What is their name and what do they play?
Find a person who is graduating from high school this year? What is their name and favorite subject?
Find a person who was born in another state and then moved here. What is their name? Where are they from?
The challenges should ask for the persons name and ask for one detail as described in the examples above.
Then, everyone folds their slips of paper and puts them into a hat or a sack.
Next, everyone chooses a slip of paper out of the hat/sack. If they get their own they put it back and choose another. Then everyone goes around the room trying to find people who fit the description on the paper. The players write the name of the person who fits the description and the answer to the question about them on the slip of paper.
Players can write the names and answer the descriptive question for more then one person if they find more then one person that fits the description.
Players are allowed to take another slip of paper from the hat/sack and take another if they can't find someone that fits the description on the slip or if they already filled it in and want to get more points.
Each time a player finds someone who matches a description and writes down their name and answers the descriptive question they get one point.
The first person to get 20 points wins. (The game can also be played for more or less points.)
It is also fun if the winners answers are read out loud.
