Guess Who

Write the name of a teacher/professor on a sticky note. Attach the note to the back of a guest back when that guest arrives. The guest has to ask yes-or-no questions and guess who the person is by the end of the night. This works best if the party is mostly graduates who would all know the teacher. Also, the graduate would be a good target as the center of this game.

Mortarboard Catch

Have the graduate or graduates put back on their mortarboards. Give guests small plastic disks or coins to toss onto the mortarboard. The first person to land a coin on the mortarboard gets a prize. This is a very challenging yet entertaining game.

Diploma Passing Game

Roll up two large, white posterboards and tie them with a red ribbon, so that they look like large diplomas. Divide guests into two groups and have them sit on the ground in a vertical line facing the front of the room. The person at the front of each line gets the diploma. The object of the game is for the diploma to be passed to the back of the line using only the guest's feet. They cannot turn around, but must pass the diploma behind them for the next person to grab with their feet. The first team to do this and get the diploma to the last person wins. This game is definitely for more able-bodied guests.

Diploma Search

Roll up several sheets of white paper like diplomas and tie them with red ribbons. You will need at these 20 to 30 of these. Place the diplomas into a large, plastic bin and cover them with packing peanuts or torn newspaper to fill up the bin. Have two guests standing behind the bin and two standing about 10 feet in front of the bin. The guests behind the bin must search for diplomas to toss while the guests in front of the bin must catch the diplomas once they are thrown. The pair that both finds and catches the most wins.
