Just like our first Gender Reveal party game, this one is for the individual. Give each guest a Baby Predictions Card and ask them to fill in their predicted gender, weight, date of birth, and any other details you want. Then, they write a message for the parents or the baby and they are sealed until the big day.

All of these games can lead straight to the big reveal, when the guests have made their votes or guesses, you shout, “let’s see who’s right!” Then you do your reveal.

You can pop some gender shows confetti balloons or open a box with colored gender showing balloons or set off a smoke cannon. Whatever you want. It’s your party. If you want to be big and dramatic – go for it!! If you want to keep it low key, that’s your choice.

But your game must lead to the reveal because you’ve built up all the tension and fueled everyone’s excitement, before it fades away, do the reveal!
