8 Fantastic Facebook Party Games for Direct Sellers

Virtual Parties

Let’s take a trip down memory lane for a minute and go old school. Remember how every birthday party you went to as a kid there was some sort of game to play? Pin the Tail on the Donkey and Bean Bag Toss were the most popular back in my day! And as we got older there was Chinese Jump Rope and Spin the Bottle? (blushing).

Even now, as adults, there’s always a baby shower and bridal party game. I’ve never met a party game I didn’t like to play so I get super competitive playing along. See what I’m getting at here?

If you’re throwing Facebook parties, one of the best ways to get your guests engaged is by including fun games! Why try to reinvent the party wheel? There are so many different ones you can play with your guests, but I’m going to share my favorites with you.

WHY SHOULD I USE GAMES IN MY FACEBOOK PARTIES?

Party games help even the biggest introvert relax and participate. They’re a tried and true method of breaking the ice and creating engagement with your party guests.  Party games also help increase the comments on your posts, which shows Facebook that your guests are interacting with you.

The Facebook algorithm rewards this interaction and engagement by valuing these posts higher, showing your posts to your guests in their daily newsfeed. Having your posts show up in their newsfeed serves as a great reminder of your party and increases the likelihood that they’ll come back to the event.

FACEBOOK PARTY GAME IDEAS 

Ready to jump in?  Here are 8 of my favorite Facebook Party Games:

  1. How Well Do You Know Your Host – This one is perfect to include as a pre-party post to get your guests chatting. It’s a super simple question for them to answer, but when you throw in the fact that they will either accumulate points or win a door prize – voila! Instant party game! Take it up a notch by creating a graphic that shows a few of your products and ask which one the host would choose or play it on Facebook live!
  2. Guess How Many? – Most party-goers love a good guessing game so they can flex their estimation skills. Simply fill one of your products with a bunch of jellybeans or M&Ms, OR if you have a lot of small products on hand, you can toss them into a jar or bowl. Take a pic with your phone to upload it to the party, or you can play it Live. If you want to jazz it up, add some text to the photo, or you can just put some info in your post on how to play.
  3. Word Scramble – I don’t know about you, but I love a good word game! Create a graphic and choose products to use for the word scramble or you can opt for whatever the party theme is and take words from the theme. Either way, it’s super fun, and guests love to play.  Pro-Tip: This is also a great game to use to connect with your guests away from the party! Have them message you with the answer. Make sure you comment on the post to let other guests know who has already racked up some party points with the correct answer!
  4. Pick a Number, Pick a Prize – Everyone loves to win something – and mystery prizes are super fun! Use this as a bonus prize when someone books a party or places an order. You can also use it as a “Deal or No Deal” type post!
  5. Word of the Show- Choose a word that you will randomly mix into your party posts. Encourage guests to look for the word throughout the party. If they see it, have them comment with the word. This is really funny when guests show up late to the party and have no idea why so many guests are commenting with the word. You can give away party points for this to make it even more competitive!
  6. Bingo – Bingo is simple enough, but you can also use this as a way to get guests to message you. Encourage guests to send you a message if they want to play so you can send them their own Bingo Card.
  7. Name Game – I think this always creates great engagement because they’re easy and fun!  You provide them with a graphic that shows them how to make their name – the wackier, the better.  It can relate to your company (“Chef Name”), or it can be seasonal (“Snowman Name”)  or even a generic name that fits your theme (“Flamingo Name” for a tropical party.)  Just have fun with it!
  8. Scavenger Hunt – This can be played two ways: online or offline. Your guests will love going on either a virtual hunt to find items online, like products on your website or online catalog. Or they can run around their house and find random things. The winner is whoever comments first with their found items in a photo or screenshot! You can also give extra points or prizes for the craziest photo.

  • Gif Games You can have it be on any topic you’d like! Best all-time movie? Celebrity crush? Current mood? Fave holiday? If you have a party theme try to incorporate it into your Game!

The biggest thing to remember with Facebook party games is to keep it simple for your guests. Keep games easy to play and engage on. Games that are too complicated or confusing will get you crickets.
