This is a fun game to play with children who have studied the Greek gods and goddesses in school. Even Persy Jackson fans will know the characters. When kids learn about the classics differs from school to school. I’ve seen it taught in fifth grade, sixth grade, and nineth grade at different schools, so the only prerequisite is that the kids have knowledge about the Greek gods and goddesses. Thus, this game is good for ages 12+.

- any tape
The night before the party, write down a Greek classical figure’s name on each card. Make sure that your child can recognize these figures or that they have often appeared in your child’s homework on the subject. I’ve attached a list of some commonly learned about figures in the classics.
Once you’ve had about 5 kids arrive at the party, you can begin the game while the group waits for the party to start. As more kids arrive explain that that this is a human guess who game about Greek gods and goddesses. You’ll stick a notecard that they can’t see and no one is allowed to tell them who their character is. They have to correctly guess who they are based on the hints that the other kids give them.
The game is over when everyone correctly guesses who they are. Then, you can direct everyone’s attention to a different party activity or game.
