OVER THE HILL PARTY GAMES - TRAVEL DOWN MEMORY LANE - Gather old pictures of the birthday honoree from birth to the present and put them on a DVD, add a few fun captions, set it to music and show at the party.

WALKER RELAY RACES – For this fun game, you will need to have at least two walkers. Make sure you do not get the type of walkers that have wheels on them. Before the party, make a starting line and a finish line, making them about 20 feet apart. To play the game, divide your “over the hill” guests into two teams. Give each team a walker. Then, when the game starts, the first person on the team has to walk using the walker to the finish line and back. Players have to use the walkers correctly and cannot just lift the walker and carry it to the finish line. Once the player comes back to start, the next player grabs the walker and repeats the same thing. This continues until one team finishes, winning the old folks walker relay race. This is one of the over the hill party games that is sure to bring lots of laughter to your party.

RETRO DANCE OFF – Another fun idea for over the hill party games is to have a retro dance off. You will need a disco ball to hang up in the dance area. Then, you will also need a playlist of old disco dance tunes. Have three judges for the dance off. Then, start playing the playlist of disco dance tunes and have all your part guests hit the dance floor. See who can remember all of those old dance moves, such as the Mashed Potato or the Hustle. Have judges pick out three winners – “best dance moves,” “most limber dancer” and “funniest dancer.” Everyone will enjoy dancing to old favorites.

THE LOWEST PRICE CONTEST – Before the over the hill party, make up a list of common grocery or household goods, such as toilet paper, eggs, milk, dish soap, laundry detergent, bread, gas, paper towels, ground beef, shampoo, etc. Put this list on paper using your computer and then print out a list for each guest. Give guests a list as well as something to write with for this game. Have all your guests go through the list, writing down the very lowest price that they ever paid for the items on the list. Give your guests about five minutes to complete the list. Then, have guests add up all the prices on the list to come up with a final dollar amount. The player that “spends” the lowest amount of money will win the game and be crowned the “over the hill” buyer for the day.

OLD FOLKS SIMON SAYS – This variation of Simon Says is simply hilarious. Everyone will have a blast as they play this game. For the game, you will need to have enough ear plugs for all the guests and blindfolds for everyone playing as well. You will also need someone to lead the game as “Simon.” Before beginning the game, have everyone don their earplugs and their blindfolds. Then, the lead has to try to shout loud enough to make sure that players can hear the directions to the game and players have to try to carry out the instructions without being able to see and with difficulty hearing. Everyone will be stumbling around trying to follow the instructions from Simon. Of course, if they do not follow the directions, they are out of the game. Anyone who does something when the lead does not say “Simon says…” will be out of the game as well. See who survives until the end of the game and make sure they get a prize – they will definitely have earned that prize!
