Ambush? Sort of. You'll want to keep the purse game under wraps until you're ready to play. Why? It's much more fun when you catch your family and friends in a natural state of surprise!
Reveal who is overly prepared for any earth shattering event with a purse full of band-aids and breath mints and who's purse looks like it's undergone an earth shattering event already.
Printable bridal shower games, like the purse game are so simple, they make hosting a bridal shower incredibly easy. Just download and print as many copies as you have guests (hint: save this game for future ladies' parties, everyone loves it!).
The object of the game is to get as many points as possible. The person with the most points is the winner. Get points by producing the items on the "What's in Your Purse" game sheet.
Not all items are created equally, of course! The more unusual the item the more points your guests will get. We've included some real zingers for fun!
Play as either a timed game or with one person calling off each item. Players mark the items they can produce from the purse off the list as the host calls each item. For a timed game, allow 2 minutes for players to find as many items as they can in their handbags.
At the end of the game, players announce how many points they each have. The player with the most points is the winner, and the player with the least points is the loser.
Why mention the loser? This person has the fortitude to limit what she carries in her purse! Kudos!
It's fun to provide a prize for both the winner and loser. A nice prize for the winner is an organizational item such as a cosmetic bag, purse organizer, etc. A funny gift for the loser is to provide some of the items on the list for her to add to her purse!
