Cowboys, Indians and riding the range have been a big part of childhood playtime since the West was won. A Wild West party, complete with Wild West-themed games, can be fun for kids and adults alike. Strap on your six-shooters and return to those thrilling days of yesteryear with a party that encompasses the adventure of the Old West.
Organise a genuine cattle roundup at your next Wild West party event. One person gets the rope and everybody else is the cattle. Set a timer and let the cattle (guests) run wild while the person with the rope rounds them up. The timer stops for each player when all of the guests have been roped. The person who rounds all the guests up in the least amount of time wins a prize.
Set up an obstacle course to mark the corral. Choose one or two of the strongest guests to be bucking broncos. The rest of the guests take turns riding a bronco until they fall off. The guest who lasts longest wins the match. An alternative to this is to break guests into teams, designate a corral, and have guests take turns riding one another around the corral. When one pair returns to the relay line, they are replaced by a pair from the other team. The first team to finish wins the game.
Shoot-Out at High Noon
Divide guests into teams. A member from each team will stand six feet apart, each armed with a water balloon. They hold their balloons at their sides until someone yells "Draw." Then they throw their balloons at each other, as if drawing a six-shooter. The wettest team loses.
Brand the Calf
A Wild West take on pin the tail on the donkey. Draw a calf on a large piece of poster board and draw an X on the calf as a brand. Blindfold guests and have them place a coloured pin as close to the brand as possible. The guest whose coloured pin is closest wins a prize.
