Last year our game was "Two Truths and a Lie" which I stole from Linda Lou's fabulous book, Bastard Husband, A Love Story. It was alot of fun. Every employee submitted 2 truths and 1 lie about themselves. We put it all on a big board and everyone had to figure which one was the lie. The point is to submit truths that no one knows about and make the lie believable so it's hard to determine.
Every year the game is different, and quite frankly I am out of ideas. We've done the "submit a baby picture of yourself and guess who's who." We did a doppleganger one. We submitted quotes of things said by each employee and you had to guess who said it. Once you add booze, these games become a riot.
Below are the options for this year so far, and none are really great:
1. Submit your favorite Christmas gift as a child. Then we all guess who's gift is whose.
2. Whoever you get for secret santa - you must stealthily take something from this person's desk - something somewhat personal and give to me. All items will be numbered and displayed at the party. You have to guess who's stuff it is.
3. Be a Movie Star - everyone gets a move star name stuck to their back and they have to guess who they are by asking questions.
I'm obviously looking for better ideas. Got any?
