Japanese Tea Party Games







- Japanese Party Game Ideas -



Shichi Narabe:

  • This game is otherwise known as Fan Tan.

  • This is a four player game.

  • You will need a 52-playing card deck.

  • Shuffle the deck and deal 13 cards to each child - there should be no cards remaining.

  • The players set up the layout by removing the sevens from their hands and placing them in a column on the table - make sure that there is enough room on each side of the sevens to eventually turn this into an array of cards with 13 columns and 4 rows.

  • When a player takes her turn she has 2 options: (a)place a card from her hand onto the 'array' on the table, or (b) take no action at all. In this game, however, a player can only take 'no action' a maximum of three times, after which she must always take an action.

  • A player can play a card only if there is a card on the table which matches it in suit and is adjacent to it in rank. For instance, at the beginning of the game, since all the 7s are on the table, the first card played can only be a 6 or 8 (any suit).

  • The cards on the table are arranged in rows, one row to a suit, to make this rule easy to follow.

  • The game ends either when one player runs out of cards (in which case, the remaining players receive penalty scoring for cards left in their hands).

  • Or the game ends when all players run out of cards (in which case, the players are ranked as first, second, third and fourth place, in the order in which they ran out of cards).

Tokyo Doodles:

  • Each player needs a sheet of paper taped to her back. Player 1 will need a marker as well.

  • Players get in a line, with each child facing the back of the child in front.

  • The person at the back of the line (Player 1) draws an object on the paper of the person in front of her.

  • Player 2 can't see what is being drawn on her back, she can only feel it.

  • Player 2 then tries to draw the same thing on the paper of the person in front of her (Player 3), and so on and so on.

  • Players keep going down the line until it reaches the last player.

  • The last player in line then tries to draw the object on a separate sheet of paper.

  • Compare the drawings on everyone's backs and on the last sheet of paper.

  • You should get some very amusing results!

Chopsticks:

  • You will need a stool for this game. Turn the stool upside down.

  • Have four children stand at the corner of each stool leg.

  • Place blindfolds on each child.

  • Have each child take 4 giants steps away from the upside down stool.

  • Give each child a single chopstick.

  • On the count of three, the children will turn around, walk to the stool and balance their chopstick on the correct stool leg.

  • The first child to complete the task wins!

Japanese Dancing Teddy Bears:

  • Place several teddy bears in a hoola hoop place on the floor. Place one less teddy in the hoola hoop than are children present at the party.

  • You will need lively music.

  • Start the music and the children circle and dance around the hoola hoop. Make sure the children are dancing!

  • When the music stops, the children will hurry and grab a teddy bear from the hoola hoop.

  • The child who is not able to grab a teddy bear when the music stops, is out.

  • The rounds continue until, only one child remains. She is the winner!
