Great Family Fun!!

Just because you are in isolation doesn't mean you should be bored. To the tune of U2 Elevation... it's "I - so - lation ooo oooh" It's really tough in Ireland right now. Many of us are working from home and we have the kids too. It's like the office has somehow moved into the school. NIGHT. MARE. But, if there's one thing Irish people can do really well - entertain themselves. So, if you don't have a guitar at hand or have a karaoke machine - here are some brilliant games suggested by Fergal D'Arcy Show listeners.

Guess The Next Lyric Game - 

These are always great fun and there's a load ready to go on YouTube. Here's one to start:

 

Try Not to Laugh Challenge

Gather around the living room and play your favorite funny YouTube videos. If someone starts to laugh, they get a point against them. Keep track throughout the night and the person with the least amount is the winner! Be warned this is impossible. We broke down at the first clip on this compilation!

Kiss, Marry, Kill

If you don't know how this one works here's Finn from Star Wars playing it. It's always best if you pick a theme like Marvel Universe, a sport, Film Stars, Instagram celebrities, TV characters etc.

Impression Challenge:

Write the name of several famous personalities onto a piece of paper and throw them in a hat. When it's your turn, you will choose a paper from the hat and prepare an impression of the person you've chosen. In order to win, your friends must be able to guess who you are! Obvs!

You can either do celebrity impressions or play a game like this where you have to do sounds for example 'A Dial up Modem' - you can make it as adult or childlike depending on your players.

Blindfolded Makeup Challenge


Does exactly what it says ! Have a look at this tutorial. Looks like great fun:
