As Game Master for our May the Fourth be with You Parties, I set up and come up with games for us to play. Here are two games from last year’s festivities that are perfect for any Star Wars Party: “Star Wars Limbo” is a variation of the standard limbo game for kids and adults, and the “Star Wars Limb-OH!” is my own invention, and meant for pretty serious fans only.
DIY Death Star Soap-on-a-Rope
Does your spouse sing bad, 80’s rock in the shower? Would your life be greatly enhanced by some Star Wars tunes being sung instead? We can take care of that! Introducing the M4P exclusive Death Star Soap-on-a-Rope!
Guaranteed to leave you clean, nice-smelling and ready start every day with a smile and some serious Jedi mojo.
Show your True Colors! (DIY Banners)
Are you a Rebel or a Buckethead? Jedi or a Sith? Do you want to show your true colors, or hedge your bets and show all? Jedi Master Heidi made these 7 fantastic banners few of years back, and they are incredibly simple and cheap to make. Our display might not quite rival Napoleon’s flag display at Les Invalides, but I promise it still looked very impressive!
The first year we used them we had a contest: the person who identified the most insignias correctly won a prize (vintage Star Wars books). It was surprising how hard it was for even the most ardent fans to get more than half correct.
What does Star Wars Smell Like? (DIY Star Wars Soaps)
When our son was about 2.5 he asked me “What does Star Wars smell like?” Now, it happens that I actually do not have a sense of smell, so I would not be able to answer a questions about what ANYTHING smells like. But since I cry when I chop onions, I sneeze when someone wears too much perfume, and cough when I burn the chicken, I at least have some vague concept that different things smell differently. Still, I was WAY out of my depth on the smell of Star Wars (though we have all heard about the Tauntauns stinking). So, we asked dad (who is THE Star Wars expert in our family, and has an exceptional olfactory system to boot), but he had no idea either.
