Tupperware distributors can choose a Tupperware party game from more than 200 games that focus attention on Tupperware.
* Concentration Tupperware Party Game
Prepare 2 identical sets of 12 square photos of Tupperware products. Paste the photos on plain white cardstock. Arrange shuffled photos upside down on a table: 6 across and 4 down. As guests select two squares at a time, you turn them over. If they are a match, leave them turned. If they do not match, turn them upside down again. Guests must concentrate on where they saw the photos. The person who matches all the photos wins. You can limit the number of guesses permitted to make this Tupperware party game more challenging.
* Word Search Tupperware Party Game
This Tupperware party game is like the word searches you see in word game books except that it uses Tupperware product names. Prepare your word search by arranging letters on a paper in 15 columns and 15 rows. This is done easily on a computer. Among the letters, hide the names of Tupperware products in such a way that they can be spelled out vertically, horizontally, or diagonally. Give each guest a copy of the puzzle and a list of the hidden word. Ask them to find and circle each word in the puzzle. The one who finishes first wins a gift.
* Gift Bag Tupperware Party Game
Each guest is given a small gift bag in this Tupperware party game. You announce that you are going to read a story, and when they hear the word "right" or "left" in the story, they should pass their gift bag in the correct direction while you continue reading. They should never have more than one gift bag at a time, and when the story ends, they keep the gift bag they are holding.
Whatever Tupperware party game is used, the winner often receives a gift-wrapped Tupperware product.
New Tupperware Party Games
Tupperware distributors may use other games at their parties, and some christen their new games as Tupperware party games.
* Parcel-passing Tupperware Party Game
Place a small Tupperware gift in a box. Warp it in a layer of paper. Now wrap it in another layer, and repeat until you have about 10 layers. Finally wrap it in gift paper so it looks nice.
Seat guests in a circle, and play a snippet of music. When the music stops, the person holding the parcel removes ONE layer of wrapping. Repeat until the box is unwrapped. The winner opens the box and keeps the gift.
* Mimes Tupperware Party Game
Several women are taken from the room. Those remaining are warned not to say a word. One is returned, and told to mime something. Example: putting 6 wet eels into a Tupperware bowl and closing the lid securely. Before she starts miming, a second woman is brought into the room and told to watch. When the first woman is done miming, she sits down, and the second is told to do what she just saw. Before she starts, a third woman is brought in to watch, etc. When the last person has done the mime, ask her what she just did. Chances are it will NOT be what the first was told to mime. This Tupperware party game has no winner, so no gift is given.
* Memory Tupperware Party Game
On a tray, place about 10 to 15 Tupperware items (e.g. key chain, midget tumbler, garlic keeper, spatula, salt shaker, ice cream scoop, etc.). Cover the tray with a cloth. Seat guests in a circle.
Place the tray in the middle of the circle and tell guests they will have just 60 seconds to look at what's under the cloth. Remove the cloth for just 60 seconds. When the time is up, replace the cloth. Now ask each guest in turn to name an object on the tray. The first person who fails to name an object, repeats an object that has already been named, or names something not on the tray is out. The tray is then removed, some or all of the objects replaced and rearranged. The game is re-started with the person following the one who is out. The last person to go "out" is the winner and receives a gift. If this Tupperware party game is too easy for the group, add more objects or reduce the time.
* Chubby Bunnies Tupperware Party Game
Guests try to see how many marshmallows they can stuff into their mouths and still say "Chubby Bunnies". The winner is the one who can manage the highest number. This Tupperware party game shows how fresh and soft marshmallows are when kept in Tupperware.
* Improvisation Tupperware Party Game
Pair guests into teams of two. Give each team a Tupperware object with which to perform in as many creative ways as possible. Example: a double colander. Hold the white part in front of your face, and say, "Your puck will never get past me!" or "Scalpel, please." Place the red part on your head, and speak in a robot-like voice. When every team has performed, vote on the best and give both team members a gift.
No matter what Tupperware party game you choose, it is important to prepare before your party. Be sure you have the rules written out in a way that is easy to understand. Try reading them to a 9-year old to be sure you haven't left out an important point. Have all equipment ready to go - all prizes wrapped.
Tupperware party games are so great at Tupperware parties, you may want to use them at your next birthday party, too.
