How To Play Pin the Tail on the Donkey

Materials Needed

Blu Tack

This party game probably doesn't need much explanation. Firstly, you'll need to decide on the theme. The classic theme is "pin the tail on the donkey" but you can really do "pin the something on the anything". If the event or party you're running has a particular theme, you could work with that, or alternatively just be creative or random... or both! Here are some ideas:

Pin the PIZZA on the PLATE
Pin the BIBLE on the PULPIT
Pin the BOWTIE on the CAT

Once you've decided on what's being pinned on what, then you'll need to create the poster (with the picture of what you're pinning on) and a "pinnable" item. This can be done by hand, using paint or printed out from a computer - completely up to you.

To play the game, get the players to line-up and take it in turns to be blindfolded, spun around and then pin the item on the poster/wall in the right place. The player that pins it in the closest position to being correct, wins! But everyone should be laughing and having fun regardless!

What I need to know if you have 100 people playing in the game per se how do you figure out who is the closest if you got it several people close to it do you have everybody put their tails up there with your name on it or how do you do it?
