Getting people together from various areas of your life can be a little awkward. Your coworkers mingle with grandma, while your best friends from college talk to your mother-in-law and your workout buddy is joking around with your niece. You invited all of these people to celebrate your new chapter as a mom, so you want to make sure that they all feel comfortable around each other. Pull a trick out of one of your elementary school teachers’ books and opt for some icebreakers, like trivia games. They can facilitate that process. Your friends and family will laugh while they compete against each other to see who knows you best.
The best baby shower trivia game sets have a wide variety of games. There are of course the games focused around you and your partner, but there are word games, scratch-off lotteries and bingo as well. That way you can hop from game to game throughout the shower to keep people engaged and getting to know one another. We found three different games. Each game has a minimum of 33 cards and a maximum of 50, so you can play games with a bigger shower crowd, too.

3. 33 Baby Shower Raffle Card Game
The concept of this game is pretty straightforward. There are 33 scratch-off cards and only three of them have a baby with a poopy diaper. If you get a baby with a dirty diaper, you win a prize. Mothers-to-be or family members can determine the three prizes before playing. To play, you hand out a card to each person. Your guests use coins to scratch off the baby’s diaper to see if you’re lucky enough. The 30 losers will be lightly insulted by funny phrases like “Sorry, just a fart!”
