You will need supplies and game ideas, but where do you go? Here, that’s where! We have created a great set of games and as usual some pretty neat printables to help you achieve that awesome party. Please feel free to enjoy the free game ideas, in hopes that your party planning days get a little easier!
Rocket is a feisty little raccoon who is a bounty hunter always on the hunt. For this game you will need a large playing area, outside if possible. Either take a volunteer for the part of Rocket or choose someone to be Rocket. The remaining players are all criminals on the loose. Rocket must round-up as many criminals as possible during the game.
Rocket will stand in the middle of the play area and the remaining players will stand on one side together. Rocket will yell out “Rocket’s Round-up” and the players must run to the other side of the player are, passing Rocket. They must try not to get caught by Rocket. Rocket will tag as many criminals as possible and the one’s that he tags are out of the game and must sit down. This continues until only one criminal is left and they become Rocket and the game starts over.
This is more of an activity than a game but can be used in the other games if you like. All you will need are paper plates, pipe cleaners, paint or markers, glue, and scissors. Have all of your guests gather around and create their own mask of their favorite character from the movie. Once they are done with the mask they can have a fake battle or wear them throughout the party.
This idea was found on the website Real Moms of Vegas. For complete details check out this rockin' moms site.
You can use any kind of bottle are jar you want for this activity - mason jars are great because you can buy them in bulk. You will need one for each guest. You will also need:
Below is a video for those of you more visually inclined! She does it slightly different than they way I described (mixing the paint and water beforehand) but in the end they both work.
Ronan (see update below if Ronan is too Volume 1 for you) has a plan to put an end to life in our Universe. It is up to the guests to defeat Ronan’s plan. It is up to the guests to defeat Ronan’s plan. For this game you will need 26 balloons, 26 scraps of paper, one red and one green marker or pen, and a six-sided die.
Use the 26 scraps of paper and write one of each letter on each of the scraps of paper. Write the letters in the color shown below.
Put one scrap in each balloon and fill with air. Scatter all the balloons on the floor. Have all of the guests come into the room and line up. Each player takes turns and chooses a balloon and then rolls the die to determine how they must pop their balloon.
If they roll a;
Once they pop their balloon the must pull the paper out. If it is a red letter it will go to form the words R-O-N-A-N D-E-S-T-R-O-Y-S. If it is a green letter it goes to form the words G-U-A-R-D-I-A-N-S S-A-V-E.
Keep playing until one of these two have been completely spelled out. This is the fate of the universe.
If they do save the universe they all win a small prize. If the universe has been destroyed, the players must help pick up all of the balloon pieces.
UPDATE: Ronan is long gone so if you want to play an updated version you can change the red letters to T-H-A-N-O-S S-N-A-P-P-E-D!
Our Avengers Infinity Wars treasure hunt features fun clues players must solve in order to discover where the next clue is hidden.
We created the funtastic themed clues but you get to decide where the hiding locations are - that means you can play anywhere!
This game features more heroes than just the guardians, but the guardians are definitely included. My favorite is the Groot Decoder puzzle!
This game is perfect for ages 6-12 - players should be able to read, write, and do very basic addition. Click on the image to see clue samples and download details.
Peter, aka Star Lord, likes to listen to the mix tape that his mother made for him. But it's time to mix it up a little, so it is up to you to come up with a new mix for the Star Lord to use on his journeys. Have each guest write down two songs they believe should be on the mix tape. Download one of each of the guest’s songs and burn them onto a disc. You can play it throughout the party if you have time or you can send them home as a party favor for your guests.
Remember in Infinity War when Drax thought he was invisible because he was moving so slow, this game was inspired by that hilarious moment. Players dance to the music until 'DRAX' is yelled and the music stops - the person who is it watches everyone and if they see someone move more than "so slow it's inperceptible" they are out. The most 'invisible' player wins the game.
For this game you will need an infinity orb. My easy to make idea is to take a orb sized rubber ball and paint it black (unless you can buy it black the that's even better). Now swirl silver puff pain all over it. GeekMom.com offers an excellent craft tutorial if you want to up the quality of your orb.
Play the Game!
One player (it) leaves the room or puts their head down and closes their eyes. The rest of the players pass the orb around until the player who is it calls out:
"One, Two, Three, FORB,
who's got the infinity ORB!'
The player who is it cannot enter the room / open their eyes until they have finished calling it out. All the players sit during this time and one hides the orb behind their back or between their criss-crossed legs. The person who is it gets three guesses to try and figure out who has their orb. If they guess correctly they win and get to be it again - if they guess wrong the person who had the orb is now it.
Another game you can play with your orb is burning orb - this game is just like hot potato only the players will be using the orb.
Have everyone gather around in a circle and have music ready in the background. When the music starts the players will begin to pass the orb around.
When the music stops the person holding the orb is out and will give it to the person to their right. When the music begins again the passing will continue making sure to follow the same rules of when it stops that person is out. This continues until you are down to two players and the last person holding it when the music stops is out and the other player is the winner!
You will need a colorful cereal like Trix cereal, bowls, shaving cream and shower caps. Have your guest’s partner up with one another. One person must put on the shower cap while the other covers it in shaving cream. The other person will grab a bowl of cereal and stand 4-5 feet from their partner.
When the game begins the teams will have one minute to throw as many pieces of cereal as they can at their partners head. The partners must try to catch them as they are thrown. Once the time is up, the teams will count their cosmic catch and the team with the most pieces wins the game.
For this game you will need to print out a large picture of Groot. You will also need to trim the bottom off of the print out or print without his bottom roots. You will then need to use brown construction paper to trim out roots. Place a piece of double sided tape on the back of each one of the roots. You will then hang the printout on the wall. Have the children line up and put a blind fold on the first in line. Spin them in two circles and have them attempt to pin the root on Groot. The person to get the root the closest to where it belongs wins the game.
