I know you said you didn't want to stop for the shower games. But a couple cute games to consider is a poopy diaper game. Smash up different candy bars in diapers and pass them around for everyone to guess, the most correct guesses gets the prize. Another one is baby animals, mis up all the letters of baby animals and have the guests unscramble them. Or you can always google baby shower game ideas. Hope this helps. Good luck

We did a couple guessing games and a scavanger hunt. Guests had to guess the exact due date of the baby (if it's not commonly known) and another one is guessing how many inches around mom-to-be's belly/back. Closes to actual number wins. We also did a purse "scavanger hunt". You pick different items that someone might be carrying in their purse (ie: mechanical pencil, crayons, scissors, tweezers & other uncommon items), the first to produce the item wins. Another one is "guess what the mom-to-be is wearing". Have the mom-to-be leave the room and ask the guests to write down as many things as they can remember about mom-to-be's attire. The person with the most correct responses wins. (ie: what kind of shoes, color of clothes, type of clothes, jewlery, etc.) Hope this helps a bit. Have fun! :o) S.

My favorite game that got people talking and got a few laughs was relating Names and their meanings. I made a list of all the guests names that were attending the shower and then listed the meaning as published in the book I purchased. Then you just had to match the name to the meaning and whomever got the most right per table, won a prize. Some of the meanings were quite funny and would spark more conversation at the tables where everyone didn't already know eachother.

I was all about simple games that don't take away from people conversing and enjoying themselves. We played bingo where guests write down possible baby gift items on their own card and then they cross them off as the gifts are opened and we had small prizes for each bingo throuout which was nice. We also passed out little pacifier necklaces (Michaels)to everyone and whoever said "baby" had to give up their necklace to whomever they were talking to. The person with the most necklaces won a prize. And...we gave small prizes out to whomever had a birthday closest to the due date, date of conception, mothers birthday, fathers birthday, etc. Hope this helps! Also...there are tons of ideas on the internet if you type in "baby shower games" in google.
