If a disc jockey just plays music for a dance, then what happens to the party when dancing is not the focus? Your family reunion, Bar/Bat mitzvah, Sweet 16 or Class graduation party may not focus on dancing at all. This time, your DJ needs to help with the organization of the games!


Depending on the age group and number of people who show up, plan that half of your small group or a quarter of your large crowd will participate in each game. Also plan no less than 20 minutes for each game. Some will last longer, others not as long, but this benchmark will make transitioning from one game to another much smoother. You'll also need to decide if your party is an olympics of game playing, or a variety of games, dancing and conversation.  Always make a schedule of events before deciding on a final arrangement of playtime and be sure your Master of Ceremonies is aware of the plan you have for the evening.
