Game: Having A Baby
What you need: Balloons
How to play: Guests split into teams of four or five; each person in the group gets a balloon. When the host says "Go!" the first person from each team has to blow up their balloon as fast as they can and stick it under their shirt. After the first person's done this, the second person follows suit, then the third, etc. Once all team members have balloons under their shirts and are sporting baby bumps, each person in the group (starting with the first) has to pop their balloon. The team that blows up and pops their ballons first, wins.

Game: Tinkle In The Pot
What you need:  Two quarters for each player, masking tape, and some large jars/glass bowls.
How to play: Split guests into teams of four or five. Create a starting line and have each guest line up behind it. Place jars/bowls across the room. Guests have to hold a quarter between their knees and waddle to the jar/bowl. Once there, they have to drop the quarter into the jar/bowl -- without using their hands! If they miss it, they have to start over. Every guest have to go twice; the team who finishes first wins. 

Game: Guess The Baby Pictures
What you need: Copies of baby pictures of all the guests at the party and some poster board.
How to play: Make sure the host asks for baby pictures of each guest well before the shower. Then it's time to get crafty -- arrange the pictures in a fun collage on poster board. The fun comes in when the guests have to guess which picture belongs to which guest at the shower. Whoever gets the most correct wins.

Game: Pin The Baby On The Mommy
What you need: Cutout photos of a baby and a blindfold
How to play: Blindfold each guest and give them a cutout of a baby. They must then try to pin the baby as close to the mother-to-be’s tummy as possible. Whoever gets the closest wins.

Game: Baby Scrambler
What you need: Paper and pens for all guests and a list of 25 scrambled baby-related words. 
How to play: Guests only have five minutes to unscramble as many words as possible. Whoever gets the most correct wins.

Game: Blindfolded Diapering
What you need: Diapers, a blindfold, and a life-sized baby doll(s).
How to play: Have your guests split into teams. As soon as the first member of the team is blindfolded, they have to put a diaper on the baby doll and pass the doll and the blindfold to the next member of the team. Each member then must remove the previous diaper and put a new diaper on the baby doll. All while blindfolded. Whichever team finishes first wins.

Game: Baby Tic-Tac-Toe
What you need: Large paper or erasable board to make a tic-tac-toe board, writing utensils, baby facts

How to play: Guests divide into teams. Each round one player from each team picks a card and must draw on the board. If their team guesses the allotted time they get a point. First team to 10 points wins.

Game: Baby Alphabet Game
What you need:
Paper and a pen for each guest.
How to play: Each guest must vertically write the alphabet on their paper. When the time starts they have to try and think of a baby-related word for each letter. After two minutes, whoever has the most words wins. (For example: B=binky, D=diaper, etc).

Game: Draw A Baby
What you need: Paper plates and a crayon for each guest.
How to play: Each guest must place the paper plate on top of their head. When the host says so, each guest must try and draw a baby on the plate. When the host says "Time is up!"  they get to judge all the pictures and choose the best drawing.

How to play: Each guest receives an egg upon arrival. They are not allowed to leave the egg, unless going to the bathroom or participating in a game.
