Skill level:

  • Fire pit, hand torch lighter

  1. 1

    Feature a torch lighting ceremony at the beginning of the games you plan to incorporate. Like the opening ceremonies of the Olympics, ask a few guests to be involved. Give the first guest a hand torch (the kind you use to light fireplaces) and ask him/her to say a few words before handing the torch over to another guest. The last guest lights the fire in a fireplace or outside in a firepit. Let the games begin!

  2. 2

    Print out a list of the Ancient Greek Gods and Goddesses and what they each ruled over and make it into a quiz. Ask guests to match up the god or goddess with their power (see Resources below for link).

  3. 3

    Grab a copy of "My Big Fat Greek Wedding," a chilled bottle of Ouzo and some shot glasses. Any time a character says the word "Greek" throughout the movie, everyone takes a drink of Ouzo.

  4. 4

    Collect a bunch of cheap dishes and some Greek music. Toward the end of the evening, play the music and invite guests to throw the dishes, break them and yell Opa! as a symbol of new beginings--not to mention a great stress reliever!

Tips and warnings

  • Make sure you find a place to break the dishes that is contained like a fireplace not in use or outdoor patio, so pieces of dishes don't fly around and hurt other guests.
