At our family reunion last weekend, we played free fun, family games for an hour or so.
I found one of the games when I happened to catch it on the Ellen Degeneres show a few days before the reunion. I highly recommend this game for any size gathering, as it's as much fun for spectators (probably more, even) as it is for the participants. It's called Musical Balls.
We also played a game I found in a book I have from the 1970's, called the New Games Book. I highly recommend this book, as it is chock full of fun games to lead small and large groups of people in. The game we played is called Rock Scissors Paper Tag, and it made for some great photos!
The funniest game of all, though, was the game my cousin Karen found, called The Plunger Relay. We had four teams of three players. Player 1 had to run/walk with a toilet plunger between his/her legs to Player 2, who had a roll of toilet paper between his/her knees. Player 1 had to skewer the T.P. and then head to Player 3, who had a second roll at the ready. After skewering both rolls, Player 1 rushed to the finish line, where his/her teammates take use all of both T.P. rolls to wrap Player 1 up like so:
In this video clip, you will see what happens when my 11-year-old nephew (Player 1) struggles to connect with his teammate, my son Kyle, age 18. (Hands were not allowed, but I helped at the end, because...well...it was necessary.)
We laughed until we cried.
