All roads lead, eventually, to that Brazilian icon Carmen Miranda. At least in party games. Yesterday, we hosted our first social gathering without boxes in the living room. Princess Ai Lin slow cooked pulled pork for sandwiches (YUM!) , I made cole slaw, and the other visitors brought dessert and snacks. Countless beers were consumed which made the party game Celebrities, a Klab special, even more fun. The kids played outside almost the entire time – bonus!
Here’s how you play:
1) Everyone write down the names of 5 celebrities and put in a bowl – go wild with names if children out of earshot
2) Shake bowl
3) Divide into 2 teams
It’s all down hill from here. A player from the first team selects a name. They have to, using words but not proper names, describe the celebrity so that their teammates guess the name in a jiff.
The contestant could use the following to describe the man: Indian, wears saris and small spectacles, man of peace, etc.
In round two, only one word can be used to describe the celebrity, such as “peace” for the above example.
In the final round, the contestant must act out the celebrity, not saying a peep.
Hints: Pamela Anderson and Britney Spears are too easy. Christian Bale is hard, unless you are familiar with all of his movies and farming equipment. Kenny Morrow is well, one celebrity I’d never heard of. You get the picture. The red carpet may be but a dream but on a Sunday afternoon even you can hold an Oscar (Meyer) in your hand and play to the masses. Just think how much fun you’ll have with Daniel Day-Lewis!!
