This year’s Eurovision Song Contest is on 14th May 2016 and if you’re getting a group of friends together to watch it, some Eurovision party games are essential!
They’re a fun way to make the contest more interesting or pass the time during the long voting process.
So whether you love Eurovision or love to hate it, take a look at our suggestions for the best Eurovision games to play during the show.
Best games to play during Eurovision
Eurovision is known for certain things – crazy singers, political voting and funny comments from Graham Norton – and that’s what makes Eurovision bingo so much fun!
It’s really easy to find free Eurovision bingo cards online (Pinterest is a great place to look) and all you need to do is print them out before the show and have some prizes ready for the winners!
Who am I?
Put your knowledge of previous winners to the test with a Eurovision game of ‘who am I?’ All you’ll need is some post-it notes and a pen to write down the name of a famous Eurovision figure. Then stick it on one player’s forehead (without them looking at it) and they can ask 20 questions to try and guess who it is. This is a fun game to play during the adverts or during the lonnng voting process!
Hold a sweepstake
This takes a little bit of organisation before the party – print out a list of all the countries taking part in the Eurovision Song Contest, cut them out and fold them. Put all the countries into a big bowl and each guest pays £1 to pick a country.
Whoever they pick, that’s who they’ll be supporting and whoever’s country wins will win all the money collected in the sweepstake. It’s a fun way to add some more excitement to the show!
Guess the year
Think you know your ABBA from your Buck’s Fizz? Test your Eurovision knowledge with a fun game of guess the year. Simply nominate one person to be the quiz master, name a song or a famous contestant and your guests have to guess what year they were in the Eurovision Song Contest!
Guess the song
This Eurovision Song Contest game is much like the music round of a pub quiz. Play the first 20 seconds of a famous Eurovision song and your guests get points or prizes for guessing what it is!
Don’t just leave the singing to the contestants! Karaoke is always a laugh and you’ll be surprised how eager everyone will be to have a go once they’ve had a few drinks!
You don’t have to sing Eurovision songs – anything goes!
