How About India Tea Party Games?

- India Party Game Ideas -

Bengali Boggle:

  • Place 15 small items on a tray. Have a total 30 items to play subsequent rounds.

  • All players in the group get 30 seconds to stare at the tray of items, after which the tray is covered.

  • One of the children, the first player, is asked to leave the room.

  • Once the child has left the room, a single item is removed from the tray.

  • Once the item is removed, the child is called back into the room to guess which items was removed.

  • Subsequent rounds are played by 'shuffling' the items (replacing some of the items on the tray with others). Other children will have the opportunity to guess the missing item.

  • This is a really great way to pass out party favors... The party favors might be the items placed on the tray, with different colored dots, or lettering on them to make them all different.

  • You will need a handkerchief for every two children at the party.

  • For this game the children are separated into to groups.

  • The two groups line up facing each other kneeling. Number 1 children in each line face each other, number 2 children face each other, and so on and so on. - Remember that the children are on their knees.

  • Then the handkerchiefs are placed between each number pair within reaching distance of both children. - The handerchiefs will form a straight line between the two team, when they are properly placed.

  • Then you will call a number between 1 and X (X will be the number of children per team).

  • The two numbers from each team will try to snatch the handkerchief in front of her first. - Remember there are handerchiefs down the center of both team lines.

  • The team to snatch the handkerchief will get a point.

  • After X number of rounds (X is the number of players per team), the team with the most points wins!

Malaysian Melee:

  • This is really the game "War", but I sort of like ring of "Malaysian Melee" better! (smile)

  • You will need a 52-deck of playing cards, Jokers left in.

  • Deal out the entire deck of cards so that there are no remaining cards.

  • Each player arranges all of their cards into a stack - Absolutely no peeking at your cards!

  • The game starts when the player to the left of the dealer puts down a single card in the center of the table.

  • Everyone then puts down a single card in turn.

  • The highest card wins the kitty! The order from lowest to highest is: 2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10-Jack-Queen-King-Ace-Joker.

  • Joker is the highest and wins everything, 2 is the lowest.

  • If there is a tie for the highest card then those players will participate in "Malaysian Melee".

  • You do this by reciting, "Many Men Malyasian Melee".

  • You place 3 cards face down on recitation of the first three words. When you say "Melee" however you will place a card face up.

  • Now, each of the players involved in the initial tie is going to do this. The fourth cards placed faced up will break the tie. The highest fourth card wins the entire pot in the center!

  • Now, if there is yet another tie between the fourth cards, then the "Melee" continues until someone has placed a fourth cards that wins the entire kitty.

  • If you run out of cards during a melee, the opponent wins the kitty, and you are out of the game.

  • This is one of those games that can go on forever. So, to end this game play for a set period of time. When the time is up, the player with the most cards wins!

Punjabi Pressure:

  • This is a 4 player game. However, there is a way to add more players. I'll tell you at the end...

  • You will need a 52-card deck. Separate the 10s, Jacks, Queens, and Kings from the other cards. Put these cards aside.

  • Now take the number cards remaining and shuffle them. Put them face down in the center of the table.

  • Shuffle the 10s, Jacks,Queens,and Kings, and deal them out so that each player gets four cards a piece.

  • The goal of this game is to be the first player to make a four-of-a-kind from her hand. This is done in a really fun way!

  • A fifth guest will be needed to keep a rhythm going. This girl will count 1-2-3-4. On the fourth count she will call out loud, "Pass!". She will do this over and over until the round stops.

  • Her counting will begin the game. Upon hearing "Pass!" All the players have to take one of their cards and pass it to the right.

  • Remember you are trying to be the first one to make a four-of-a-kind. So pass cards that you feel won't make a quick four-of-a-kind for you.

  • Remember that you don't have unlimited time to think and play cards, because you have to pass a card when "Pass!" is called.

  • When someone has made a four-of-a-kind, then the play stops. That individual gets to pick up a point card from the center of the deck (one of the number cards).

  • The next round resumes when all of the 10's, Jacks, Queens, and Kings are collected and reshuffled, then dealt out (four cards per player). Now any point cards that you earned you will keep until the end when they will be totalled.

  • The caller begins the counting again, and a new round starts.

  • The first player to 100 points wins!

    Note: If you want to include more players you will need 2 or more decks of playing cards. Just use the 10's, Jacks, Queens and Kings. You can add up to four additional players for each extra deck that you include.

Indian Jewel Hunt:

  • This is a really easy and fun game to play.

  • You will need several colorful stones... If you can't find stones then you can make construction paper cut-outs of jewels.

  • Hide these objects in the room or rooms where the party is going to take place.

  • This game is played over the course of the party.

  • As the party progresses, guests will begin to relax and notice your "jewels" hiding all over the place.

  • At the end of the party the guests who have found different items will get different treats.

  • Make a jewel chart that corresponds with what the children will receive when they find certain colored jewel. One jewel might get a chocolate bar, another and small wrapped gift, etc.

  • This is a terrific way to pass out favors!
