- Toss it and accordingly make the one, whose prediction has turned out wrong, drink as much as his opponent wishes.
- Let the winner decide the next pair of contestants.
6. Capture Your Heart
- 2 paper made hearts
- 2 boxes
- 2 small tables
- 1 stopwatch
- Keep the tables, boxes, and chairs in the shape of a big heart and keep one paper heart at the starting point of the race. Make 2 groups, “A” and “B” of 3 members each.
- Let one constant of group “A” stand near the ensuing point, another in the middle of the course and the third at the end.
- As you say “go”, one participant should take a paper heart, run to where the second one is standing, by overcoming the obstacles to hand the heart to him. He then should run and give it to the third.
- Note the time taken by group “A” and allow team “B” to repeat the game. The group, completing first is the winner.
These games can usher variety and fun at offices too. Try making some even more intriguing and watch how your colleagues bank on you for more such events in future. However, be alert to maintain the true spirit of the party by not being too authoritative or extra forceful. The arrow of Cupid, you must know, can never miss a pair in love. So, help out the small guy by taking the aid of games, but do not attempt to be him in any way.
