Just wanted to share some of my favourite group games (particularly those which are played during winter holidays). Perhaps you know some of them, but I still hope it'll be interesting for you.

1) Associations:
Version 1
The player thinks of one of people present. Other players try to guess who is the "secret person", asking: "What flower (color, tree, furniture, animal, etc. - it depends only on your fantasy!) is this person like?" type questions, and the player answers them. For instance:
"What jam is this person like?" - "Strawberry" (this could mean the "secret" person is a sweetie)
Version 2:
The first player thinks of a word, whispers it into the neighbour's ear, and the neighbour does the same, but he or she whispers the very first association. Meanwhile, the "game master" tries to guess the very first word (he or she may try lip-reading). And, trust me, you never know what's going to turn out in the end!

2) The Keeper of the Secret
The Keeper thinks of a well-known phrase, slogan, motto, etc. and tells the rest of the players the amount of words in it. The players ask the Keeper any questions, and the Keeper should reply with one sentence, one word of which is the word present in the motto he or she keeps in mind, and it goes on until the players figure the motto out. For instance:
"Secret" motto: "Bowties are cool"
Player: "What do you think about new laws?"
Keeper: "I suppose they are neither better nor worse".
Player: "What musical instruments would you play if you could?"
Keeper: "Guitar sounds cool".
Player: "Do you like hand-made toys?"
Keeper: "I do, but they're not so easy to make - just like bowties".

3) Definitely, Maybe
Good old detective riddles. The game master gives the players a complicated logical riddle, and the players ask questions about it, but those only which can be replied "Yes", "No", "No matter". For instance:
A man killed himself because he saw a rock with a blood droplet on it. What happened?
Player: Was it his blood?
Game Master: Yes.
Player: Did he leave it there on purpose?
Game Master: Yes.
Player: Was this rock huge?
Game Master: No matter.
Player: Would he stay alive if he didn't kill himself?
Game Master: No.
The correct answer: The man was lost in the desert. He marked the rock with his blood, and when he saw it again, he understood that he was walking round in circles, and therefore killed himself.

4) Cat Concerto
The player listens to a song in headphones which no one else hears. Then he or she takes the headphones off and shows the name of the song with gesturing and mimicking, no speaking! Additional rules:
- It is forbidden to show the song's performer.
- Time can be limited (optional).

5) Pieces of Eight (Mad Hatters)
Each player puts an item (a coin, a hanky, a figurine, etc.) into the hat, and the game master, whose eyes are tied, pulls the items out of the hat one by one, saying: "This Piece of Eight should... (do something funny - it depends only on your imagination!)"

Tag a quality deviant, You’re it! Quality doesn’t mean that you have a lot of followers, or a lot of messages. It means that you’re nice to other people, and you deserve to be happy. If you get this message, someone is telling you that they love you as you are, and they don’t care how much followers you have. Send this to 10 deviants who deserve it. If you break the chain, nothing will happen. But it’s just good to let someone know that you love them!Heart
