2013 Survivor Party Challenges and Games

10szhwnsgmHost a Survivor Party featuring our party games and challenges modeled after your favorite moments on the hit CBS series. Though the latest Survivor season is over, there’s still fun you can have playing at home. Use our luau party supplies or safari party supplies to set the scene then get guests engaged in fun challenges to win immunity or the ultimate prize. Remember to split guests into tribes, keeping things fairly even based on age or fitness.

Hand out poker chips or other favors representing luxury items or votes at tribal council. The tokens can be saved or used throughout your Survivor challenges, emulating the competitive mood of the show, but within a more constrained situation.

Relay races are a huge part of the Survivor challenges. Create a relay race making use of themed props and your venue space. For example, for a Survivor party in your gym or backyard, have the first leg challenge contestants run a three-legged race. For the next leg, you can create an obstacle course, and the final leg can be a sprint or other challenge. Keep the components of the race appropriate to the age of your guests. Or you can have legs for kids to run and legs for adults to run, mixing things up. Remember relay sticks for keeping the game organized.

Guests can earn more chips or tokens in a gross-out eating contest. Stock up on gummy worms, dirt pudding, boiled carrots (fingers), or halved grapes (fish eyes) to create a contest like the infamous Survivor challenge. The contestant who can stomach the most within 90 seconds wins!

Use Survivor themed favors such as personalized mint tins with a jungle logo, canteens, bandannas  or other prizes to create an incentive for a Survivor trivia scavenger mission. Use sidewalk stars to label your clues and hide them throughout your party space. You can use field cones, ropes, or natural obstacles (bushes, hills, etc.) to create a difficult journey for your contestants. Ahead of the challenge pass out an answer sheet with certain spots highlighted. On the stars write a trivia question. When they find the answer and write out the answer, the highlighted letter will be part of a final keyword they’ll have to unscramble to win the grand prize. For example, on the star you might write “Who won the first season of Survivor” Their answer would be R I C H A R D  H A T C H. If the H in Richard was highlighted that letter would contribute to the final keyword. The Survivor website is a great place to find questions.

If you’re hosting a Survivor themed retreat, camp, or classroom, you might be interested in this Survivor lesson plan. It features scaffolded activities to focus on different challenges and leadership skills. Get creative and adapt it for kids or adults to fit your guests.
Use our inflatable spider ring toss game as a silly, creepy challenge. Call the spider an amazonian tarantula that guests have to fend off to get to the next challenge. They have to land three rings on the spider to move on. We have plenty of other inflatable games for you to check out too!
