80s Party Game Ideas
The Wake Me Up Before You Go Go Dance Off
One of the best 80s fancy dress party games is the Wham inspired George Michael dance off. This involves playing the Wake Me UP Before You Go Go movie and seeing who can best mimic the dance moves and attitude of the movie. All players should gather together in one room at least a meter apart. When the judge signals the song will play and everyone will start grooving it up al a the Wake Me Up Before You Gogo video. Winner is decided by the judge and must be someone who has captured the look and/or spirit of the video.
