Who Knows The Birthday Boy Best Games
1. Point System – This is the simplest one, so I figured I’d start out with it. For this game, each correct question is worth a point, the first person to get to 10 is the winner and pronounced the best friend of the birthday boy. That’s some pretty high stakes. To make this extra fun, get a sash/pin/crown made for the winner that says, “I’m the birthday boy’s best friend”. The winner gets to wear it for the remainder of the party.
2. Shaving Cream Slap – This one is hilarious. For this, you will need shaving cream. For starters, find a place that you won’t mind getting messy, outside is preferable. If you have to play indoors then lay down some plastic to help protect surfaces. Have each player sit down in a row, and have the birthday boy walk around to each of them with a palm-full of shaving cream. He will ask them the questions and if they get them right, they’re safe. If they get it wrong, they get a slap!
3. Answer or Die – Birthday Boy will need a squirt gun. This one should also take place outside if you can help it. Everyone will take turns getting asked questions about the man of the day, and when they get them wrong, they get sprayed with the squirt gun. The driest person at the end is the winner! This one will result in laughs and giggles for days, so it’s a wonderful game to play on a birthday.
4. The Amazing Race – For this one, you’ll need to make a finish line with a party streamer. Since it’s a birthday party, you should have some on hand. Next, have everyone line up at the starting line. When the Birthday Boy asks a question and you get it right, you take a step forward, if you get it wrong then you have to stay exactly where you are. The first person to reach the finish line is awarded the winner!
5. Jeopardy – I Saved the best for last. One of the funniest ways to play the Who Knows The Birthday Boy Best game is to make it a literal game show. This one will take some preparation, but it’s well worth it. You’ll need Paper, Tape, Buzzer/Bell, and Scoreboard.
- On the wall, create your categories and tape them up across the top, then put the point system going across the side. You’re basically making your own version of the game board from the TV Show.
- Next, to make the questions, you’re going to write them down on the lower half of a piece of paper. Fold it hamburger style and draw a question mark on the front. Tape it to the wall in the correct category.
- Have everyone line up and give them a buzzer or bell.
- Then play as if you are playing Jeopardy but with the theme of the birthday boy!
