Guess My Resolution

This New Year's Eve party game is an easy one in that it requires little work from your guests to participate, but will be challenging enough for the group to offer hours of fun.

When guests enter the party, ask them to write their resolution on a slip of paper.

Fold up the slips of paper and place all resolutions in a bowl.

Later on, after cocktails are served, the party host reads the resolutions aloud and the guests must guess who wrote each resolution.


Two Truths and a Lie New Year's Eve Edition

Give this classic party game a New Year's Eve twist.

Have your guests share three things they've done in the past year - two must be true, the third has to be a lie.

Other guests must try to reveal the lie.
