Adults’ St. Patrick’s Day Games
PIN THE SHAMROCK ON THE LEPRECHAUN
Using the green construction paper, cut out several shamrock shapes and attach sticky tack to the back of each shape.
Attach the leprechaun cutout to the wall.
Blindfold one person at a time and have them tack the shamrock onto the leprechaun. The object is for them to get the shamrock onto the pot of gold.
If they miss the pot of gold, they have to take a drink of beer or green punch.
The ones that get the shamrock on the pot of gold wins a prize such as bottle of Guinness or Irish candy.

ST. PATRICK’S DAY TREASURE HUNT
Handful of gold chocolate coins
This treasure hunt is very similar in nature to an Easter egg hunt.
Hide the gold coins throughout one room in the home such as the living room or den. If the weather is nice out, you can choose to hide the chocolate outdoors in a designated area.
Let your guests loose to find the chocolate coins.
The person who collects the most coins wins a cool prize. Prize ideas include an Irish history book or bottle of Jameson’s whiskey.
HOT POTATO DRINKING GAME
Guinness, Beer or Irish whiskey
This is a new twist on the classic game of Hot Potato.
You can use a plain potato or add some creativity to it by drawing shamrocks on it.
Have all the guests sit in a circle, each of them holding a shot glass.
One person is chosen to sit in the middle of the circle, with the potato.
Irish or Celtic music.
The center person hands the potato to someone in the circle, while the music begins playing.
The potato is passed around until the music stops.
The person holding the potato when the music stops must take a shot of beer or whiskey.
The game keeps going until there is only one person left in the circle.
The winner gets to keep the potato and gets a cool prize like an Irish Tenor’s CD,
Irish candies or case of Guinness.
