When planning entertainment for guests for the New year 2021, you should choose some fun new year’s games, for example, invite everyone to play forfeits with jokes, which will definitely enliven the atmosphere and make guests leave the table for a while.
The essence of the game is that the participant, determined by a random draw, must complete a task. Naturally, no one can know in advance what the next task will be, or who will have to perform it.
It is worth noting that the game of forfeits is very popular with both children and adults. The main thing is to choose the right tasks, taking into account the age, interests and readiness of your guests for experiments and jokes.
The options in the game forfeits
There are several variations of the game of forfeits, which gives you the opportunity to choose the most optimal one for your team for the New Year 2021.
Option #1 (classic)
Each of the guests passes a certain item to the host. All items are put in a new year’s bag. The host randomly takes out an item and asks everyone who is its owner. Guests must guess the performer of the forfeit, and the one whose item is caught must complete the task.
Option #2 (don’t pack up)
Instead of items, you can simply use tightly rolled notes with the names of participants, or pre-prepared leaflets on which each of the guests is described in an interesting form.
Option #3 (with cards)
In this case, the tasks are created by the guests themselves and written on pieces of paper. You can take turns drawing forfeits from the hat (or bag). Also, the person who completed the previous task can determine the next participant.
Option #4 (a fun choice)
You can determine the performer by playing “potato”. Any object is passed to each other while the music is playing. On whom the music will be interrupted, and he gets the penalty.
Option #5 (double selection)
In this case, both the names of participants and tasks are written on the cards, and Ded Moroz and Snegurochka define the pair “participant” + “forfeit”.
But the most important thing in this game, of course, are the forfeits (tasks) themselves. They should be fun, interesting, and uplifting to everyone. It is important to take into account the characters of the audience and not write on forfeits that can offend, upset or embarrass someone.
