Funny Bridal Shower Games


When you want to have some fun with your friends and family you can always make a party. There are so many occasions that can need a party. For example when it's someone's birthday or anniversary, for holidays like Christmas, New Year's Eve, Easter, Thanksgiving day. Or when the employees had a good month the company can throw a party and also for special occasions of someone's life (the wedding, the birth of a new child and so on). The party held before a wedding for the bride-to-be is called the bridal shower. This kind of party is popular in countries like United States, Canada and also Australia. But of course it can take place in any other country too. They are usually organized by the bridesmaids who will invite guests to bring presents for the future bride. The groom is usually not invited, and there will be mostly women at this party.

The guests won't have just to bring the gifts and then sit down and talk and eat, they can also have a lot of fun by dancing or playing funny bridal shower games. If the guests know each other for a long time they will probably prefer to sit and talk, but if not the games will really help them to know each other and to start interacting and relaxing. It will be better to avoid written games, because calling out answers can be more fun and social. Be careful to choose games that will not make some of the guests feel embarrassed.


Now let's begin to present some funny bridal shower games. One of them is the "What comes next" game. In this one the host will read the first words of a sentence, and the others will have to complete it. For example: "A stitch in time....saves nine" or "Variety is...the spice of life". The first person who will give the correct answer will get a point. Whoever will have the most points will win the game, and probably a prize too. You may also give a prize for the funniest answer.

Another one is the "What the bride says". In this game someone will have to write down what the bride is saying when she is opening the gifts (without her to know this). After she opened all the gifts that person should read her comments. And these will be the bride's words to describe her wedding night. You can also try the "Mom's advice" game. In this one the guests will have to write down the best and the worst advice that they received from their mother or grandmother. The person with the best advice will win a prize, and also add a booby prize for the worst advice.


A different game is the "Clothespin game". Give each guest a clothespin for her cloths as they arrive at the party. If someone hears another person saying the word "bride", the she will get that person's clothespin. The guest who will have the most of the "pins" is the winner and gets a prize. You can also try a memory game: place 15 to 20 small items that are related to a wedding on a tray, and cover them with a napkin. Place the tray in the center of the guests without the napkin for two minutes and then cover it again. Ask the guests to write down as many items as they can remember. The person who remembers the most is the winner.

Another memory game is the "What is the bride wearing". After some time, the bride must go in a place where she can't be seen by anyone, but she can be still heard by them. (you may use microphones for this game). The she will begin to ask questions to the guests about what she is wearing, how her hair looks, the color of the shoes and other things like that. She can even ask questions about what she likes (her favorite food, color, movie etc.) Ask a question for each of the guests and whoever will give the correct answer will receive a price.


A game involving celebrities is this one: stick a note on each person's back, with the name of a celebrity written on. The other people will have to talk to that person just like they are talking to the real celebrity. Each person will have 5 minutes to figure out which celebrity they are. Of course this game will involve a lot of movement, because they will need to go from one person to another, and to look at each others' back. So this will make them stand up from the chairs or couch, and have some fun.

You can also try the "happy wishes" game. It's not actually a game, but it can be fun for the bride. Have the guests write on an envelope an event from the couple's life together. Then on a index card they should write a happy though or an advice for that special occasion. Then place the index card into the envelope, and give all of them to the bride. She will have to open them only at that specific event, for example wedding night, first anniversary, first fight, first child and so on.


The "Word scramble" game is like this: give a list of scrambled words to each of the guests. Use words that are common to a wedding, for example : bride, groom, cake, flowers, gifts and so on. The first person to get all the words right is the winner.

You can also try a trivia game. Make a list of questions about the bride or the couple, and divide the guests in two teams. Ask a question and the group to answer first gets a point. The team with most of the good answers is the winner. You can also try a trivia game with questions about famous people (actors, singers, politicians) and their weddings or marriages. For example "How many times has Elizabeth Taylor been married?" or " Who was the first wife of Brad Pitt?".

The Grid and Capcom Renewal of the Bionic Hero is Seen as a Solid Return


The “Bionic Commando” has been first introduced to the action games’ fans more than 20 years ago as a release of Capcom Comp. With the 2009 release, gamers can get back into the action playing the same old character Nathan “Rad” Spencer who now has to face situations that are not in his favor, considering that he drew the animosity of the people that in this series are bionically enhanced and sent him to prison for some previous improbable camaraderie. In the prison, waiting for his death sentence, he is found devoid of all his technology; but this situation doesn’t last too long thanks to a group of terrorists (Bio-Reign) who detonates a weapon, at the same time blowing up a large number of population in Ascension City. This situation set the tone for the following action where we find Spencer as a commanding officer in charge to discover what lies behind the terrorist attack.

The gameplay moves mostly around the bionic arm but Spencer is not ready to get back in track so quickly considering that he has been away for so long from his gear, and it will take some time before really plunging into the action. As motions enabled to the character are the several swinging and vertical leaping performed with a help of an arm cable extension and a grappling reticule that turns blue each time you need to connect to a surface. These leaps however must be carefully performed since there is the possibility that you can fall into irradiated areas that will take points from your game scoring. Another ability for Spencer character is punching with his arm to knock objects and throw them toward different targets. You will find the feature that hangs your enemies in the air, thus allowing you to shoot them while they are helpless. But next to these capabilities Spencer is equipped with his old faithful pistol and moving through the action he can also gain other weapons and grenades and a helping hand from Super Joe, his attendance in fighting actions.

bionic-commandoThe purpose of your actions is not necessary to accomplish all the tasks in order to finish the title, but to play the tasks from beginning to end. During these tasks a lot of challenges are displayed, together with a series of bonus provisions, such as additional armors, or increased size of the grenades or weapons to be carried. The linearity of the game doesn’t allow you to go back and finish some tasks that might otherwise give you access to hidden things to be collected.

The game is playable also in multiplayer version with Detahmatch, Team Deathmatch and Capture the Flag modes, and the multitude of details spread around the game field renders the Bionic Commando an impressive aspect. The Grid and Capcom renewal of the Bionic hero is seen as a solid return and scores the game at 7.5 points (out of 10 being the best) on IGN rating meaning a good overall.

The leap that NCAA has done from the 09 to the 10th of this year is quite irrelevant


In the field of football gaming there was a time when “Madden” took control over “NCAA” kingdom of the most favored US games – football - in regard to better graphics and gameplay, but lately, “NCAA Football 10” seems to gain supremacy again considering the quality of the game. Improved with new interesting additions NCAA Football 10 delivers a touch of familiarity to the gamers, though in the end it doesn’t prove to be all that consistent.
<-300x250 Medium Rectangle - center->
A new feature is introduced by the ‘Season Showdown’ mode that links your profile to the one of a particular college team. This link allows you, thanks to Season showdown mode, to keep track over every decision and action you make while handling all the modes present in the game, at the same time awarding points for the college you have previously chosen to play and credits the good sportsmanship for your team.

ncaaAnother interesting thing is the living leader-board of all the nationals 120 NCAA football teams that displays every player’s contribution in a huge pool of competition, for in the end of the real-life season, the first 32 teams to dispute their abilities in order to compete in a tournament that decides the Season Showdown team-champion. This constant statistic that is tracked across the modes of the game reveals to be a good idea, though it is only a passive trait of the game, the game’s action relying mostly on playing the game in three types: dynasty, exhibition and Road to Glory.

The old Campus Legend mode is back under the name of Road to Glory featuring live-action cut-scenes with the main character, Erin Andrews, a reporter superfluously added in the display of the game. Next to other new elements unimportant to the game’s dynamic, there still is a problem which previously existed in Campus Legend mode: the annoying effort to get your player from the status of a practice performance to the one of actually lining up for the start. Even after you are there, at the starting line up, you still miss some positions that you might have otherwise preferred to the few viable existing ones.

To create a team with this new game’s release you can do it with the help of EA’s Team builder site which enables you to ‘edit’ players and custom uniforms and logos in a an endless list pf possibilities. But creating your team according to your own desires may seem useless as long as you have to play on a stadium that looks like Horseshoe Ohio, for instance. But either way, the play out there in the field looks real enough and there is the feature of a play-calling screen that informs you about some strategies needed to be taken in regard to defense or other actions you foresee to make in the dynamic of the play.

Apart from these features there are some interferences during the play, such as a clock that is rather bugging while it announces the end of the halves together with some commentaries that don’t have any connection whatsoever with the actions going on on the filed. All in one, the leap that NCAA has done from the 09 to the 10th of this year is quite irrelevant, letting us hope that for the next NCAA Football 11 there will be indeed consistent additions made to comprise also better on-field presentation.
