I need help with a game I am thinking about playing during my Asylum party and need ideas, suggestions, opinions etc....

I want to hide pill bottles throughout the house, put a note in them and have the guest bring it to me to open and tell them what they have won?
The notes will say things like this:
This shot wont hurt a bit. I will have several shots to choose from
Chocolate cures all. They will get a big chocolate bar
No wine'ing. Small bottle of wine
Money cures everything. Lottery ticket

You get the idea. Would you include some gag gifts also? like, Relaxing music to soothe your soul. And have an old album of Lawrence Welk or something?

This is what I wrote to include on the invite

If you seek
You will find
The medication
To ease your mind.

Search high and low
Listen to the voices
Only yourself to blame
For your choices.

When you find it
It must stay sealed
Find a caring nurse
And you shall be healed.

Is this too lame to play?? Our crowd is mostly 40 and up and about half will play anything the other half just wants to drink and talk.

ANY suggestions, ideas for the prizes and would you include the gag prizes?.

Thanks everyone!!!

Hiding small items may be tough if you dont have a clue or something like that to find it. I would hide them in plain sight, but make them difficult to see. You can also do a movie poster game (about main characters who are nuts) for those who don't like to play alot of stuff. Everyone got into this one last year and its easy. People love huge candy for prizes. I had them all in a bag and let them pick. I had one grand prize of gc to starbucks $10.

Thanks matrixmom, I thought about this all last night and decided not to hide the bottles but to have my daughter walk around with a tray or basket and offer it to them. Maybe just do it 3 or 4 times during the party. I think it would be much more controlled that way.
I love the idea of a grand prize. That poster sounds like a great idea too. Something that doesn't need constant attention and they can play if they want....I like that.
Should I stick with the good prizes or throw in some gag gifts?

I worked for an insurance company taking prescription refill orders at one time. During our training we had to do a scavenger hunt around the building and pick up various things. The point of this is that we were supposed to be looking at the pill bottles and getting used to the info on them. You could collect lots of empty bottles and make labels for them with names like Viagra and place the little blue candies in them. Other names of actual drugs or maybe better just suggestions of what they do--Sexual Enhancement, Sleeping Pills, Stay Alert Longer, Memory Pills, etc. You could put in various kinds and flavors of small candies that could be consumed.


Are you going to use various pieces of medical equipment? wheelchairs, potty chairs, walkers, etc. I find them all the time cheap at thrift stores and garage sales. Even bed pans. Do you have the foam sign from Dollar Tree from a couple of years ago? I should have it still if you want it---will be spring before I did things out to reorganize though. I may have some other things like costumes that might work. Maybe even some hospital gowns. Let me know.

LOL, great idea on the labels! those would fit our crowd...
I have a wheelchair. I don't know about the other medical stuff yet, it's such a fine line between Asylum and hospital. It's sooo confusing. I do have a huge block of foam i'm going to carve the name of the Asylum on and I found a thrift store place in ft worth that only sells clothes and on Wednesday they have them for .25 cents each pc.! When I checked it out on Saturday they had tons of scrubs, so my Mom is going to go over and pick me up about 4 matching sets for my orderlies. :D
I am on the lookout for a child size Dr Lab coat. and I have 2 or 3 hospital gowns.
Let me know what you come across when you start organizing.....Thanks!!!

I have a child size set of scrubs that have a set of intistines (plastic rubbery) that are on the front like the insides have been ripped out. I know that I have it and for some reason, I think it might have a white coat. I will send it if you want it. again, this may be too much like a hospital unless you have deranged patients killing the staff.

It depends on your guests as far as gifts goes. I know everyone loved the huge candybars I got. I also had small $ gift cards ($5 starbucks, pizza hut etc). But then again I only had 3 games. 2 had one winner, and 1 game had alot winners-thus the candy bars (had a whole team of 10 people win) . But I let the losing team pick at the candybars whatever was left.
