Cranang:YES. Please don't do games. Most people don't like them regardless of whether it's a big shower for a first baby or a sprinkle for a second. Just say no.
I don't agree that MOST people don't like them. I seriously don't know anyone IRL that don't like them. I have only heard on this website even the idea of people not liking baby shower games and I started asking around (family, friends, co-workers). Not one person said they really disliked games or even rolled their eyes.
As for having games at a sprinkle...I wouldn't. Usually there aren't that many guests and they are only a couple hours long...if that.
LOL, my mom hates baby shower games too! I remember she was appalled the first time we were at a shower together and they announced that a game was forthcoming. I had never actually heard of baby shower games until my generation started having kids.
And we were big game players in my family...LOL.
guess its true when they say when women get together they just yap away. Just answer the question and move on.
No, its not weird not to have games at a "sprinkle". you don't have to do anything you don't want to. if you're throwing the event, you're in charge of everything that happens and doesn't happen. and if its in a restaurant, you might NOT want to do games, you may annoy other people at the restaurant.
for those of you that get "appauled" at shower games, you don't have to participate either. its a game, losen up and have fun.
