Mystery Dinner Game
This party game is a crazy and different way to serve dinner or snacks. Guests order from a crazy menu where all the food items have a name that gives a clue to what the food will be. The teens won't know what they have ordered until the waiters bring their food.
They order three different times and by the third time everyone at the table should be able to figure out the cryptic food clues and can order knowing what they will receive.
You'll need extra helpers to be waiters that are not part of the party so they can keep the menu items a secret.
Complete instructions, set up and free menu to print out are on the Mystery Dinner Game page.
Icebreaker Games are great for the start of the party to have a chance for the teens to get to know each other and "break the ice" before the party begins. Quick, easy games that get the guests talking and interacting with each other.
