Wine Cork Guessing Game

This is a simple guessing game that any wine loving adult will appreciate.  It’s the traditional, “Guess how many ______ and win a prize” game!

When we host parties I like to add “simple activity stations” around the house to keep people busy in between conversations and gluttony.  As you can guess we had a wine party. 🙂

I placed the game right in the middle of the living room so people would notice it in passing and participate if they wanted to.  Needless to say everyone participated because I advertised that there would be a “PRIZE!!” (Or two hehehehe)

I started with this chalk board easel I got from Target for $3!  Using a pencil I lightly sketched out a fancy font I found on the internet, and went over it with my white chalk marker.

Next you need to fill a vessel with corks.  I already had the canister jar but you can use any jar you have on hand;  Flower vase, Large mason jar, Glass water pitcher, etc.

Large amounts of corks are sold at craft stores… or you can find about 1,000 of them in my craft room. 😀

Then I added a little stack of notecards for guests to write their answers on, and something for them to drop them in which was an oversized novelty wine glass.

I also added a bouquet of flowers to “liven things up a bit”… I mean, it’s a party!

Last thing – Buy decent wine for the prize.  I did two prizes, one for the two closest guesses.

It was my favorite kind of wine so I’m glad I could gift it!! 🙂 ❤

Towards the end of the night I went through each card to find the two winners.  Then I announced who they were.

Everyone clapped and cheered and then they raised me up on a chair and paraded me around the house chanting “Tara!  Tara!  Tara!”  It was awesome.

Just kidding.  That didn’t happen.  Anyway, that was it, simple and fun.  And it gave everyone a little something to look forward to at the end of the night.

I hope you’ll give it a try the next time you have friends over for wine!
