To make it a little easier for you, we've included a game key to explain what all the stuff before our game descriptions are. Because I know many of you have been wondering what all that stuff means.
As we we're adding content, we realized... What if visitors don't understand what we mean by "Formation: Vs." They might completely misunderstand the meaning, but no worries. Since we've made this discovery ourselves, we have been adding a game key to each of our many game pages for your convenience.
The key will look a lot like this:
Vs. = One on one competition
1 Vs. All = One person competes against everyone else
Group = None competing activities
Teams = 2 or more teams compete
Pairs = 2 or more pairs compete
Individual = Depends upon your own knowledge, experience, and skill
The Break Down
Type of Game: - This refers to the category this game was placed. For instance, "Birthday" is a game category we associate with for birthday party games.
Equipment: - These are the items or equipment you may need to play some of the games. An example of this is "Balloons, String, and Your Lungs". Almost all of our games are very low cost, and the items you will usually need you can purchase at the dollar store. Lucky You!
Formation: - How you play the game, or rather the amount of people usually needed to play the game. Our game key we've put on every game page explains this, but we'll go into further detail here:
- Vs. - A one on one competition. I like this one a lot because it can also mean elimation style gaming, but usually it's just a head on collision of combatants fighting for that "Oh so sweet!" prize you've provided for them. Vs. can also be for those "Free-for-all" type games, where it's everyone for themselves. Those types of games can get crazy, and usually some fun rivalry happens after a couple rounds of a game.
- 1 Vs. All - I would best associate these types of games with tag. These are also fun for those of us that love to be the center of attention ;D
- Group - Pretty much a none competition game or activity. These games are mostly for those spaces between games or cool down games before the refreshments, "Mmmmm, I think I can smell the cookies in the oven, just a sec..."
- Teams - Team competitions are usually associated with games that are either relays or require a team effort to accomplish a task.
- Pairs - Same as teams except it's just two players on a team against another two players. These games are great if you want to get close to the "hoties" at parties. It can also be elimation style against another pair of players.
- Individual - Requires players to survive in the games using their own noggin'. Also, it consists of games that are challenge players as an individual, instead of each other. An example of this would be games that require you to remember what someone was wearing.
Variations: - This is another way that you could play the game but changed just a little to possibly incorporate it into another type of formation, or to add difficult if your participants are just too good at playing around.
Well, I think you've spent quite enough time learning how our game key works. Hope you enjoy our site. We pride ourselves on having the largest database for party games.
