Time Consuming Home Party Games are a great way to entertain your guests while waiting for late guests to arrive, while you pack up your demo, etc. Time Consuming Games are guest-played, meaning it takes little to no interaction from you.
Unlike Ice Breaker Games, Time Consuming Games give you time to do what you need to do (set up, break down, take early orders, etc) without people feeling like they are waiting on you.

Pass The Prize Home Party Plan Game
Have a wrapped prize ready for this fun game. Hand 1 person the gift and have them follow the instructions as you (or your Hostess) reads them. The person who is holding the prize at the end is the winner!
“You thought all the gifts were meant for you. But I have other items too. So hold up this gift and look around, and give it to the one with eyes of brown. You think you are the lucky one, but let us all share in the fun! Look around with eyes discreet, and give it to the one with the smallest feet. Your feet are tiny and very small. Now hand it to someone very tall. Please, take your time and don't be harried. Give it to the one who is longest married. You must be proud of your married life, now pass this on to the newest wife. If this parcel you are bereft, give it to the one on your left. The largest earring I'm looking for now, if you're wearing them, step up with a bow. Now to the person with buttons– big or small, any kind, the most you can find gets the gift at this time. Now don't get cross and please don't fight, but pass it to the lady third on the right. We should stop now, don't you agree? The gift is yours to open and see.”
I wonder who came here from afar,
Give yourself 5 if you came by car.
Were you on time? Not one minute late?
Punctuality pays so give yourself 8.
A watch is 6 and each ring is 2, 10 more points if your eyes are not blue.
Score yourself 5 if you show any pink, But take away 10 if you left dishes in the sink.
Count all of your buttons… each gives you 1
Except if they are white and then you get none.
For each bow that you
But safety pins are taboo,
So for each
you must subtract 2.
1 point for each year that you have been wed,
But take away 5 if your purse is red.
Now sons are neat, on
So for each one you have you my now add 3.
But when adding up points, girls are worth more
So for each one that you
If you kissed your husband or boyfriend today, add 12
If you kissed them both you must subtract 20
Because you're in trouble and trouble
Now, that's all there is so total your score
Except if you're a special friend, there IS one more.
It's 50 points bonus for VIP
If you'll be a Party hostess for me!
