What Are Some Ideas for 1950s Party Games?

Some game ideas for 1950s themed parties include a 1950s Name that Tune contest, a murder mystery game, a hula hoop contest, or a limbo contest. Parties inspired by the glamorous rock 'n' roll era of the 1950s are also a good occasion to dress up like movie stars from that era, such as Marilyn Monroe, Elvis Presley or Frank Sinatra.

To host a Name That Tune contest, one should play a very short sound bite of the song that the guests should guess. Board and card games are also suitable for a 1950s party, with popular choices including bridge, Yahtzee and checkers.
