Purse Raid Bridal Shower Game

This is a departure from my usual art-related blog posts, but I thought this would be useful for someone who might be looking for a bridal shower game in the future.

I am planning games for a cousin's shower and I always like the purse raid games.  Remember the Let's Make a Deal TV game show?  At the end, the host would give away $100 to whoever could find a random item in their purse.  That was my favorite part of the show! 

I was searching online for a printable version of this game and was coming up with lots of paid versions. I mean, really?  $7 for a print-out of this game?  No way!  The free ones I found had strange items like a handgun?  Really?  I don't want to know if someone has brought a handgun to the bridal shower.  Or maybe I do want to know if someone is armed....

I put together my own sheet for this game by compiling items from many of the lists I found.

The game is played by dividing the shower guests into groups of 3-4.  The teams have 5 minutes to search through their purses for the listed items.  Items can only count one time, even if all of the team has the same item.  The team with the most points, wins!  Feel free to print out and use.

Thanks for reading!  Best wishes, Marcia

Thank you so much for making this available for free! I'm also amazed at the print-out charges for games. I'm planning my little sister's shower next week and this will be a nice, clean but not too cheesy game. Thank you!
