Hello,
This is my first post so hope I did everything correctly.

I am going to and helping with 2 quilt retreats (3 day each Oh Fun Fun) and I am in need of some fun games that quilters might like to play in between completing (yeah sure) there UFO's.

I would appreciate any help anyone might help me with.

A quilting friend
Angie

You can have:

1. One of the nights have a pajama party - best pjs wins a prize
2. An ugly fabric auction
3. A fat quarter swap - each person brings fat quarters indivdually wrapped in paper. If you put in 3 wrapped fat quarters, you take that same number out.
4. Make up a points game. For example, everyone in the room starts with 100 points then they add or subtract based on questions you make up(ie if you are wearing socks add 10 points, if you are wearing makeup minus 20 points). Be creative and far out with the questions. You do this game along with the pajama party.

Hope these help.

We have played "Strip Poker" at my guild meeting - everyone starts with, say 10 strips, WOF, 3" wide. Each player antes up 1 strip, then you deal everyone ONE card, and high card wins all the strips! Depending on how long you want to play, you can also have people trade tables every so often. I had a lot of fun playing, and then made a miniature rail fence quilt with the strips I ended up with!

:D

I have a question about the #4 points game. Everyone starts with 100 points add or subtract points based on the questions.

How does the prize work out, most points least number of point??

Need some help here this sounds like fun.

Thanks
Angie

Depending on the number of prizes you have, you pick the same amount of people with the highest number. It can be alot of fun. For example:
Everyone starts with 100 points for being there. Then start with questions like:

If you are wearing gold earrings add 5 points
If you are wearing socks substract 10 points
If you have a condom in your bag plus 20 points
If you have a library card add 30 points
If you are wearing more than one ring substract 15 points
If you were born in the year 19## add 25 points

The questions are endless and can be a riot depending on the crowd.

Have fun with it.

We played a similar game to the one with points above...
It all rhymed, and I read it out loud...
give yourself 10 points for each button
for each button that's blue, take away 2....
I didn't save it on the computer, but I will try to find it again.
Everyone thought it was fun. I was a bit skeptical at first....

I cannot believe how fast I found this! I did one search, and it came up first thing!


YOu can always change things around a bit for a more "quilty" theme. THis was for a bridal shower.

Peculiar Game

This is a rather peculiar game
It really does not have a name
It's simple to play as a game should be
You just do as you're told, you see
So now if you'll please give me your attention
We'll put an end to this suspension
In the end, whoever scores the most
Will receive a prize of which to boast
Now since you're all fashionable girls
Give yourself 5 if you have any pearls
You may add 3 if your toes peek out
And earrings will give you 2 more to shout
Score yourself 5 if you show any red
Add 6 more for a curl on your head
Now before you think you are going to win
Take away 2 for each safety pin
Give yourself 6 if your pants are tight
Add 1 for a scarf which is just about right
Add 5 more if your shoes are black
And take away 3 for a zipper in back
Now count all your buttons, for each you get 2
And take away 1 for each button that's blue
Give yourself 5 if your heels are high
And why not take 10 for the green in your eye
10 more points for a rose on your clothes
Take away 5 if you forgot to wear hose
If your husband you kissed today - add 9
If you didn't subtract 12 - you're subject to fine
This is the end...there isn't anymore
Who is the lucky lady with the highest score?
