Every year one of my favorite parties to host is a New Year’s Eve party and one of my favorite things to do is to play games that incorporate things that happened in 2015. Over the past four years I’ve done everything from celebrity resolution matching at my 2011 New Year’s Eve party to just straight pop culture trivia at my 2013 New Year’s Eve party. This year I decided to create versions of all of my old New Year’s Eve party games that have been updated for 2015 AND add in a new version that I like to call “2015 Pop Culture Blank Spaces,” or just pop culture fill in the blanks.
I’ve written everything up for you. All you have to do is download the games you want (or all of them), print, and sometimes cut for your guests. Even the answer sheets are included with each game, just download the games and an answer sheet is included! An easy and fun way to ring in 2016!
This year I did something new and designed printable versions of each of the games in four different designs – gold, silver, circle confetti, and square confetti. Hopefully one of those four designs will work with whatever theme you have planned for this year’s party. If it doesn’t and you’d like a different design, email me and I can try and get you a different design that works better for your theme.
I will warn you that while I made four different games, you’re probably not going to want to play all of them during your party. I did repeat a number of the events and trivia facts across games because I was assuming that people would pick 1 or 2 games to play, not all four.

Free Printable 2015 New Year’s Eve Party Games
Game #1 – 2015 Pop Culture Matching
Play: Guests have to match lyrics from popular songs and quotes from popular movies released in 2015 to their corresponding work of art. I specifically tried to include a variety of music genres and the top films of the year so they would be mostly things that people would know. They’re not all simple, but it wouldn’t be any fun if they were. Click on the image below to download the all four designs of the free printable pop culture matching game.
Game #2 – Where Did 2015 Go?
Play: Guests have to put events from 2015 in order from the earliest to occur to the most recent. The events are mostly divided up throughout the year so it’s not impossible but there are a few that are kind of close to each other like the Kansas City Royals winning the World Series and the Paris Attacks, both happening in November.

Game #3 – 2015 News & Pop Culture Trivia
Play: Guests have to answer trivia questions about current events, pop culture, and sporting events throughout the year. Click on the image below to download the all four designs of the free printable 2015 trivia game.
Game #4 – 2015 Pop Culture Blank Spaces
Play: Guests have to fill in the blanks for each rhyming clue that talks about something that happened in pop culture, news, or sporting events this year. I specifically wrote this one in a rhyming structure to make some of the answers easier than normal trivia. If you don’t like the rhyming or think it’s gonna be too easy, I’d recommend doing the regular trivia game instead.
