For this game, you'll need post-it notes. Choose a few celebrity couples and write one person from a couples name on each post-it note. When people begin arriving, put the post-it note on their back and explain how it works. The goal of the game is to find your matching celebrity partner. To do this, each person will need to ask the party guests questions about their celebrity until they know whose name is on their back.

To play this game, you'll need to have enough leis to supply each guest with one. The object of the game is to collect as many leis as possible. To do this, the guests must try to make other guests say "no." Once a guest has said the word "no," they have to give their lei to the person that cause them to say it. Whenever the time period is over, the person with the most leis wins the game. If you'd prefer the word to be something other than ""no,"" try to use a word that is frequently use and will hard to get around.

Word Builder

This game is better with drinking, but could be played without. To play this game, one guest needs to think of a word and say the first letter. The next guest must think of another word that begins with that first letter. They shouldn't say their word aloud. Instead, they should say the next letter. This continues on through the guests until the word is completed or can't be figured out. In either case, the person who finishes a word, or can't figure the word out, should take a drink. If you're not drinking with this game, you'd just start the round over.
