Party favors are designed for guests to take home from a party. Most parties have a theme, such as a birthday celebration for a boy or a girl, a baby shower or wedding reception, or a holiday party. Party favors do not have to be expensive. They can be edible, functional, or simple something attractive to look at. The purpose is to provide your guests with a token to remind them of your party and express your appreciation for their attendance. Although many party favors are available in party supply stores and online, making your own allows personalization and makes your favors more memorable.

The Mafia party game presents a conflict between the Mafia – the informed minority – and the Innocents – the uninformed majority. Originated by Dmitry Davidoff of the USSR in 1986, this popular game has many variations and can be played by a group of seven or more people. For very large groups, we suggest adding additional characters.
The game has two phases; night, when the Mafia might secretly “murder” an innocent, and “day” when Innocents vote to eliminate a Mafiosi suspect. The game ends when all the Mafia members are eliminated or there are more Mafia members than Innocents.
