    Prize oriented games

    Guests will get even more excited if vying for a prize. Make prize goody bags with extra booze, adult toys or whatever you think is right for your particular crowd. One idea is the resolution game. Guests each state their New Years resolution and everyone votes on who had the best one; that person wins a goody bag. Another idea is to have a funny face selfie game where everyone takes a selfie making a funny face and you choose the best one as the winner.
