Party Talk Conversation Starters



Bring out the competitive edge in guests with a cocktail party game everyone loves to play. It’s easy and perfect for any cocktail, holiday, or birthday party.

The host provides beaded necklaces, clothespins, or any inexpensive item that guests can wear. (Beads are the easiest to work with).

To play the game, the host designates a word that no one may utter. Typically, you should find a work that’s difficult to avoid. Each time a guest makes the error of saying the forbidden word, the person they were speaking with collects his or her beads or clothespin.

The person with the most beads at the end of the night wins!
