Hi! So my Sister-in-law is throwing my wife and I a co-ed baby shower at our home tomorrow. Buuut. . .turns out "throwing" for her means "bring cupcakes and sangria, let us handle the rest of the catering, invites, activities, and whatever."
So, there are supposed to be games. Of some kind. And now I have been asked to come up with some. I've searched for icebreaker/party games, and there are a couple of innocuous "get to know you" games that might be, like, OK. But then there's a lot of crap. And since, y'know, games are my "thing," I don't wanna turn out some lame nonsense like "pin t he baby on the pregnant belly" (real "Baby Shower Game!" swear to God!).
So Storygamers, I need your help! What quick and easy game ideas are floating around in your brains, suitable for a party that aren't lame Jr High shit? Assume that they need to be low-prep, low-equipment, and low-explanation. Assume that they need to play in 10-20 minutes. Assume that they will be played by like, a dozen people, maybe more. Assume that they will be played by a mixed crowd of roleplaying friends, hippie friends, punk-art friends, beer-and-pretzel friends, stodgy relatives, Democrats, Republicans, Libertarians and Anarchists. Assume that a "baby" theme should maybe be graftable onto it.
Oh, and assume that I know of Sea Dracula, love Sea Dracula, and probably will not be using Sea Dracula.
