Rocket's Round Up'

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.

Battle of the Universe

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.

Ronan has a plan to put an end to life in our Universe. 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.

  1.  R-O-N-A-N    D-E-S-T-R-O-Y-S
  2.  G-U-A-R-D-I-A-N-S   S-A-V-E

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.

  1. Pop with their hands
  2. Pop with their feet
  3. Pop with their bottom
  4. Pop with their knees
  5. Pop with their elbows
  6. players choice - but can't pop it in a way that has already been used.

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.

Burning Orb

This game is just like hot potato only the players will be using the orb. In the movie the orb can only be held by the greatest and strongest. So the last person to make it out of this game will get to take the orb home as a prize. A glitter ball or blinking glow ball works great to mimic the orb for this game. 

 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!

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.
