    Hi everyone!
    Just wondering if all you wonderful creative ladies might be able to help me out with some ideas for ice-breaker games at our AHR?
    I am thinking of playing some games to get our guests more into the party mood and mingle a bit more with eachother.
    We're having a beach/tropical/Jamaica theme so it would be really great if I could think of a game to incorporate the theme, I am thinking something involving Bob Marley songs, or maybe making someone wear a rastafarian hat.... any ideas?

      This isn't Bob Marley or hats BUT I use to play this game as an ice breaker in high school. You break people up into groups. You give them a word like Love or Ocean or whatever and they have to come up with a song that has that word in it and sing at least so many lines. You keep going around until one group can't come up with a song. It is fun because it is a bonding thing getting people to work together and better yet sing together lol

          Here is an idea if anyone in the future is looking for one. We are going to greet every guest as they arrive with a lei. Once everyone has arrived, we will announce the rules of a little game we'll play. If anyone hears someone say the word "no", (And it can have the meaning of no or "know"), they get that person's lei. So you will get a lot of people trying to trick others into saying the word "no"! The person with the most lei's at the end of the night will win a prize - in our case we'll be giving away a bottle of Appleton Rum!
          I remembered this game from a Christmas Party I went to a few years ago and we had used beads then. It was a lot of fun and really got people mingling!

              In all honesty I am not a big fan of games, I think a few drinks in everyone will relax and havee fun without the games. I am the wrong person to ask however, because I really hate being asked to play games, it makes me feel like I am at a kids party, jmho, I also find it awkward getting them organized. Now ask me about drinking games, and I will have a whole other opinion, hehehe:)

                I concur with Kelly. I hate to say it but I'm one of those people who roll their eyes and try to hide under the table when there is game playing. I find music and alcohol are wonderful social stimulators. lol. Are you having a DJ? they are usually well versed in getting the party started. BTW this is all my humble opinion. I may just be socially retarded. lol.
