"Let's Make A Deal"
Where you ask audience members for an object that not everyone might have in their purse or pocket but chances are somebody will have one...like a red hair pick or a silver money clip...then give them a prize like a can cozy or hat from the bar.... then you can ask them if they want to keep that prize or go for whats in your hand/box/bag. Etc. and THAT prize could either be a bag of pretzels or a CD or a t-shirt or a smooch from Large Marge who is all too willing to lay a big kiss on anybody :)

"Truth or Dare"
You ask somebody up and you ask them a personal question and if they answer the audience decides whether they are telling the truth or lying.... or they can do a Dare and they have to do something stupid like sing a song or do a lap dance or whatever.

"Pass the Buck"
Here is how it works....
Say the room you are playing is set with (10) ten (8) eight-foot round tables with (10) ten chairs each. Prior to the start time of the event and after doing sound and light checks, I place an inexpensive item (such as a $5 Blockbuster gift certificate) in a plain mailing envelope. I then take the sealed envelope and tape it to the bottom of one chair at each table. At my discretion during the evening, usually when I think an "ice-breaker" is needed, I instruct everyone to reach under his or her chairs and remove whatever they find attached (unless of course it's dried gum or worse!) Once they remove the envelope, I ask that they hold the envelope high in the air so that I am able to determine that each table has an envelope. Once this is accomplished, I instruct all attendees that they are to "pass" the envelope to their right as appropriate music plays (the Final Jeopardy tune works great here). When the music stops, I instruct the person holding the envelope to stand up. (I build this up during the passing of the envelope to make this person think that they are the winner) When all holders of the envelope are standing, I then instruct them to pass the envelope to the person seated to their immediate left. This is the winner of the prize.

Age Group: Age 15 on up
Difficultly: A (not much)
Scoring: First team to finishline
Timed Event: No
 This game can be a relay, but I, personally, think relays just take too much stinkin' time and leave kids just standing there bored . . . so I usually do this as an up-front game for everyone to watch a couple people do.
Tape two lines on the floor about fifteen feet apart. Have ready two pair of pantyhose and four golf balls. Put one golf ball in the leg of the pantyhose and one golf ball on the ground. After wrapping the other leg of the pantyhose around your waist, the leg with the golf ball should be hanging down in front of you just barely touching the ground. With movement from your body alone, you are to hit the golf ball on the ground with the one hanging from your waist. The object is to move the golf ball from one line to the next. Pass the pantyhose to the next person and they must go back. This is repeated until 5-10 people on each team have completed the task.

 Another stupid relay . . . but some of you might actually like those pathetic things! Several teams divide in half and stand in two lines on the opposite sides of the room for this relay game. A person in front of the line shoves six Q-tips in different orifices of his/her body (sticking out of pockets, between knees, protruding from armpits . . . ), then shuffles across room to the person in front of the other line who grabs Q-tips with their teeth, and drops them on the floor.

Suck & Blow

Difficultly: A (none)
Scoring: first done
Timed Event: Yes
 This racy title just happens to describe what you do. Line the kids up, and have them pass an index card down the line as fast as they can using only their mouths. You need to suck in wind to keep the card on your lips in order to pass it (by blowing out) to the next person in line. This game is especially great with boys, because if one person drops the card at just the right point, the two come very close to locking lips. If you want to see a 200 pound ninth grader giggle, this is the game to play. The first group to pass the card all the way down and back if you wish wins.
 
Greasey Spoon

If in doubt, always make your yarn longer than necessary. Tie one end of one piece of yarn to the end of one spoon. Do this for each team. Put the spoons (with the yarn attached) in the FREEZER to chill for an hour - the colder the better. You may want to dip the spoons in water first to add a little ice build-up. Hand the spoon to the team member and instruct them to put the spoon down their shirt, through pants legs (or skirts) and out by their feet. The fact that the spoons are cold will be apparent very quickly. The first person should also be instructed to hold the end of the yarn while the rest of the team repeats the threading process. First team to thread it all the way wins
