Perfect Party Gamesby Andrea Campbell, Sandy Hoffman (Illustrator)
What makes a perfect party? Food? Drinks? A host who's constantly fussing over details? NO! For an irresistibly festive gathering, what counts is keeping the energy high and the action going--and to do that, nothing beats competitive games and fun activities that bring everyone together. And, here are more than 100 ideas to choose from, for every type of celebration. Start with pre-party contests and icebreakers that establish the tone and give early arrivals something to do: treasure hunts, guessing games, and skits encourage mingling and laughter. As the jollity builds, move on to more "risqué" challenges, like "To Your Health"--a drinking game. Plus: You'll find party planning checklists, and advice on having it all run smoothly!

This book makes me want to throw parties just to use the ideas in it. Ms. Campbell covers everything from the beginning to the end....even how not to stress out.
Entertaining is an art that, once learned, will make your parties a hit and the subject of your friend¿s conversations for weeks. An experienced hostess, Andrea Campbell knows the ins and outs of what it takes to plan a successful party. She shares all of her insider¿s tips and secrets in her latest book, ¿Perfect Party Games¿. A successful party appears to come off effortlessly. Campbell shows you how to plan everything from invitations to a graceful way to bid lingering guests ¿Goodnight¿. Games create a relaxed atmosphere. Campbell offers a variety of choices from ¿Icebreakers¿ like ¿Who Am I Tonight¿ to help people relax and get to know each other to more challenging games like ¿There¿s a Sucker Born Every Minute¿ to bring out the competitive spirit amongst teams. This well organized party tool includes a party planner by age and a guide for choosing games by type, number of players, time requirements and age as well as a preparation and budget list. Campbell literally tutors her readers on the art of party entertaining. Campbell¿s earlier book, ¿Great Games For Great Parties¿ has helped people worldwide plan their parties for years. ¿Perfect Party Games¿ continues with this tradition, offering new tips and plenty of new games.
Obssessing about putting a great function together always left me tense and snappish. It was hard to enjoy the party. 'Perfect Party Games' not only gave me ideas to fill 'holes' in the party, but a great outline for planning, executing, then enjoying my own work.
