OVERVIEW OF DON’T SAY BOY OR GIRL
Don’t Say Boy Or Girl is a game that is easier to explain than it is to play. Though simple in theory, this game of taboo is sure to get most players to slip up during a gender reveal party!
To set up this game, you’ll need to create a number of diaper clothespins, so you can stick them on each player. Simply print out a few pictures of diapers and cut them up. Then tape the diaper onto a clothespin to create diaper clothespins!
Give each clothespin to every player at the beginning of the event to get started.
When every guest arrives at the event, announce to everybody participating that the words “boy” or “girl” cannot be said at any point during the event until the event finishes or until a specified time (such as when the gender is revealed).
At any point during the game, when a player slips up and says either of the taboo words, the player that catches them say the taboo word can steal their diaper clothespin.
END OF GAME
The player with the most diaper clothespins at the end of the game, wins the game and the winning prize!
