Funny challenges tabletop, unburdening the audience, bring unfamiliar people together, help to communicate, bring the necessary notes of humor and cheerfulness. When organizing a feast, keep the good Slavic tradition of respectful treatment of the guest who entered the house, the guest – the birthday boy and the invited guests. Your indispensable assistants in this will be funny table competitions for adults’ birthdays. They set the vector of the event, establish communication between the people at the festive table, stir up the audience gathered to celebrate the birthday boy.
The “Greeting” competition
The host announces a fun musical competition in which the women will participate in one group and the men in another. At the presenter’s command they will take turns performing a musical greeting. (The host should distribute to the guests of the feast sheets with verses of songs.) The men begin, (e.g. “Let us sing, let us live, let us love our life”), then the women sing (e.g. “Without me my beloved you”). The participants have to be creative while singing. The moderator chooses the winning team at his discretion.
The birthday boy question competition
Make up a fun, fun dialogue about the birthday boy in the form of questions and answers. Write them on separate sheets of paper. Divide the questions and answers into 2 stacks, without mixing them up, put the questions in one box and the answers in the other. Invite a couple of guests sitting around the table to participate. They will act out a dialogue scene. (Example question: “How much do you think our birthday boy got?” Example answer: “I don’t know exactly, but I have a hundred, he’s had a shot”. It is possible to involve all the birthday party participants in the competition. To do this, place unanswered questions on the table near each guest’s devices and have the answers read by the host. Keep the audience amused and interested, make good jokes, think creatively and everyone at the party will be pleased with the results.
The “For what?” competition
For this competition you will need three plastic bags of any kind and a small table. The facilitator invites three contestants, gives each one a bag and asks them, on his command, to collect in them any objects that are not too big and can be found in the room. One minute is given to complete the task. After the “Stop” command, the host asks each player to take turns laying out their items on the table and explaining to the guests what they need them for. The contest can be held in any adult company. But for a large company, the host will need to ask guests for small items – “props” for the contest (for example: comb, belt, lipstick, cigarettes, key chain, etc.) and lay them out on the table, then ask participants to quickly put what they like best in the bag. After the competition, return the props.
A fun ‘Spoiled Phone’ competition
The host honours the birthday boy and says a sample phrase: “Let’s all tell the birthday boy what he’s like in life, his successes and achievements. Then, playing “spoiled telephone”, in a slurred whisper, he tells the guest sitting next to him a joke – a characteristic of the birthday boy. This information is passed on from guest to guest in an altered form and is expanded with some details (improvise). The guest sitting near the birthday child announces what they have heard to everyone’s amusement. The conversation – the joke can be repeated several times with something new also inaudible.
Guess the table competition
The facilitator brings several objects to the audience and asks the guests to guess what is encrypted in the collection of these objects. What information do they contain? The guests come up with different ideas, but it is unlikely that they will be able to guess at once. The first letters of the collection of objects make up the name of the birthday child. For example: the name is Leo and the objects are lacquer, blackberries and funnels. As the contest proceeds, the host asks for suggestions and encourages the participants to give hints. The prize (a collection of these objects) is given to the one who is the first to suggest the correct answer. If the guests guess quickly, you can continue the contest, now the guessed word for the collection of items may be a dish on the table, prepare a second collection in advance.
The “Who’s the nimblest?” competition
Prepare a plastic cup and some straws. A contestant takes a straw in his mouth, uses it to pick up a plastic cup and pass it to a neighbour. The neighbour does the same. He takes the glass with a straw and passes the baton to the other. It is not allowed to take the glass with hands. There is excitement and fun in the competition.
Contest “The other way round”
The host offers the participants a few words, but pronounces them from the end in reverse order (for example: acliv – fork, talas – salad, nanab – banana, etc.), informs them that they are all on the table. Then offers to understand what is encrypted in these words, to guess the items, to find them. The contestant who finds the fastest items will be the winner of the contest.
Storytelling Joke Contest
Each of the guests at the table suggests one word for this competition. The birthday boy writes down all the words and makes up a funny story – a joke, weaving all the words into the text. Then read (or tell) it to the guests. You may then pass the baton to one of the guests and start the table competition again. The one who tells the funniest joke wins.
“We come from childhood” competition
Ask guests invited to the birthday party in advance to prepare their children’s photos, preferably from the “fun photo” or “fun photo” series. Hand out the pictures during the party. The guests will need to figure out who is in the picture. Whoever is identified has to tell their favourite childhood rhyme or sing a favourite song.
What bird competition
The host sits a contestant on a chair with his back to the guests. Then, on the back of the chair, hangs a card with the name of a famous person on it (the contestant should not see the name). The host then asks the contestant to guess which bird’s name is written on the card. The contestant can ask any kind of question (e.g. “Does it have a big wingspan?”, “Where does it live? etc.”). The guests can answer the questions in any way they like but they don’t have to say their names right away.
