23/06/2022

We have collected some different games and challenges that you can do with friends, family or perhaps your neighbors during Midsummer's Eve! You will find the instructions and rules next to each tip. But ofc you can always build your own rules to suit your party. 


We wish you all a really warm, happy and sunny midsummer! Warm wishes from the board! 

Finnish music quiz! Guess the famous song performed in Finnish! In addition to the language being replaced by Finnish, the tempo and choice of instruments have also changed, so it's quite confusing ?! Good luck! ;) 

Do like this: Divide into two teams. Someone needs to be appointed play leader / judge. Name the team different names, then the play leader / judge starts the songs by clicking on the link and the songs start playing. Then in the top right corner you can then click on to the next song after one of the teams has guessed the right song. The person in the team who first recognizes the song roars the team name and then you get points for each song / artist you score. Good luck! :D

Conclusion and original songs for the Finnish music quiz! 

Guess the Movie! The best films between the years 2018-2000 

The same rules apply here as in the competition above. You divide into teams and name your team what feels comfortable to shout out when you think you know which movie theme is being played. : D You get 15 seconds to figure out which movie the music belongs to. After the 15 seconds, the result comes shortly after, so the play leader / referee can pause before the next one starts automatically. (If the team wants to discuss the result;) And as usual the team with the most right wins! Good luck!

Guess the TV series! 

The same rules apply here as in the competition above. You divide into teams and name your team what feels comfortable to shout out when you think you know which movie theme is being played. : D You get 8 seconds to figure out which famous TV series the music belongs to. After the 8 seconds, the result comes shortly after, so the play leader / referee can pause before the next one starts automatically. (If the team wants to discuss the result;) And as usual the team with the most right wins! Good luck! 

Finish the lyrics! Popular songs 2010-2020! 

This challenge / competition is a little more difficult. You will hear a snippet from a song for 5 seconds, then it will be silent for 5 seconds. This is where you should fill in the lyrics by continuing to sing when the music has stopped. Yes, of course you can do so that you can write down "the lyrics" that are missing on a piece of paper which is then handed in to the play leader / referee who then has to approve if the text is correct according to the result that is played after these first 10 seconds. Here it is important that the referee / play leader has time and presses the pause on the screen to have time to check the answers before the next song starts playing. So it's a little trickier with this Quiz, but we hope you have a nice singing time!
