Don't let the low guest count upset you. We're having just 15 adults at our wedding (including us), and 9 of us will be standing (couple, bridesmaids, friend officiating), so there will be just 8 people sitting (2 kids & 6 adults). Although bummed that some of the people we invited can't make it, I'm really happy we're having such an tight-knit affair. It means only our absolute closest friends are going to be a part of the most intimate day of our lives. These are the people whose friendships play important roles in our relationship. It feels like everyone there is part of it, you know?
We're planning a really easygoing reception, just friends dancing and having fun. No special games or tricks necessary when you have a lively crowd to begin with; our friends love to party! I think when you have guests who like to dance and good music, things fall into place on their own.
If you're really set on adding to the normal stuff, you could set up a photo station with fun props. With a small crowd, you'd probably get some nice group shots.
