Outwit, Outplay, Outlast! That’s the name of the game on Survivor and it can be your theme for the activities of the night as well. First though, here are a couple of fun ideas to get the party started:
In the invitations, tell your guests to bring along one luxury item to the party. Just like the show, this is the one thing that each survivor thinks they cannot live without. Once all the guests arrive, have everyone show their treasured item and tell why they brought it. You will be amazed at the creativity that people will show!
Another fun idea is to hold your Survivor party on the first night of a new Survivor TV season. Of course, you will want to watch the show as a group and once you are introduced to each of the new tribe members, write the 16 names down on small pieces of paper. Go around and have each person pull a name from a hat. To spice it up and have some fun, ask for a 5 dollar wager (probably a good idea to ask for the money BEFORE drawing out the names). Gather your friends back together for the finale and whoever drew the sole survivor’s name wins the pot of cash! Maybe not a million bucks, but enough to make the guests interested in the series!
Here are some challenges that may not grant immunity, but are sure to provide rewards in the end!
The young and the young at heart always enjoy the classic beach game of “limbo”. Check out a Limbo Kit and for a twist on this timeless favorite, try these variations:
Flashlight limbo – Turn off all the lights and use the beam of the flashlight as your limbo stick.
Garden-hose limbo – If party guests have their swimsuits on, or if the day is too hot for comfort, try using your garden-hose as the limbo stick.
Purchase or borrow a couple of hula-hoops. Let guests know that at a specified time there will be a “hula” contest and encourage them to practice if the mood strikes. Offer prizes, such as sun block and Chapstick, for endurance and creativity.
Fill a bowl with famous phrases, turn up the tropical music, and let your guests hula their way to winning. You could use “beach” related movies, songs, and TV shows as key phrases. (“Elvis Presley in Blue Hawaii”; “Book ‘em Dano, from Hawaii 5-0″; “Itsy Bitsy Teensy Weensy Yellow Polka Dot Bikini”) Or have a past Survivor trivia game and see who is the biggest fan of the reality show.
Have a gummy bug or worm eating contest – the winner eats the most creepy crawlies in a minute.
If your party is outdoors in the summertime, have a fun game of water wars. Nothing adds excitement to a hot sunny day more than a few water balloons and a hose!
Set up a scavengar hunt and send the survivors on a mission to find the prize. First group to recover the hidden treasure wins immunity!
Take turns being a child again and swinging at a vibrant Tiki Pinata for fists full of tropical treats!
