People keep saying the summer is over, but our 90 degree weather begs to differ. I put together some fall party games as my way of telling summer to get lost and make way for fall. I want to wear a hoodie without people looking at me like I’m crazy already! If you’re looking for fall party games, keep reading. And once you’re done reading, make sure to check out these awesome Halloween party games too!
So here’s how this works. You can either just play these games individually or play them as part of a large scale “minute to win it” competition. If you’re playing minute to win it style, break your group up into teams with equal numbers of players. Pick out the games you’re going to play. Then the way it works is that one person (or two depending on the game) from each team will play the game simultaneously, so you’ll have say five teams playing at once. The first team to finish wins the game and gets the points. You can see more details about how to setup a Minute to Win It game in this Lego party post. And now the game ideas.
