Gender reveal parties have become a huge event for both genders. Husbands, wives, brothers, sisters, grandparents, college friends, coworkers and even kids can all take part in this celebration. The fun is in catching up with the people you love and sharing a part of your pregnancy with them. But the excitement and anticipation is also built up around the guessing. Because it truly is a 50-50 chance, your guests can spiritedly debate over whether your baby is a boy or girl before you and your partner make the big reveal. Your mother-in-law can insist that you’re having a girl based on how your belly is sitting, while your mother can insist it’s a boy based on your cravings. With the best gender reveal party games, they can put their thoughts and predictions down on paper, so they can joyfully prove they’re right (or wrong later).
We rounded up three gender reveal party games that are well-designed and fun. These games encourage mingling, while asking some fun questions. With one of our picks, there’s an Old Wives’ Tale game included, so everyone can take their shot at matching myths and legends of being pregnant with a boy or girl.

1. Katie Doodle Baby Gender Reveal Party Supplies Kit with Games
Make your gender reveal party a truly engaging event with these fun games. This comprehensive kit comes with an Old Wives’ Tales game, where you have to guess which wives’ tale applies to which pregnancy, a voting poster, a poster for baby name suggestions and a welcome sign. These aren’t just posters, though. You can write on them with the included chalk pen and then erase. This cute set is vibrant and durable.
2. Creative Converting GAME Cast Your Vote
If you want your guests to vote on which gender they believe your baby is, this is the best voting chart. The vibrant poster features multi-color dots and two bright columns, so your guests won’t accidentally vote in the wrong column. When it comes time to cast their vote, your guest picks up a pink bow sticker or a blue bow sticker. The votes will be easy to tally up before the big reveal.
