Sound Effects - There are two variations of this game. Both versions are always played with Ryan and Collin . One way this game is played is with the audience, the other is played with just Ryan and Collin. The variations with the audience is started when Drew picks two people from the audience, they come down and supply sound effects to the scene Collin and Ryan act out. The other variation of this game, Collin acts out a scene but he doesn't talk, he just acts out and responds to Ryan's sound effects.

Then Wayne (and extra guest, depending on who it is) must sing the song, in the style of music and make up words.
Let's Make A Date - This game is a lot like Party Quirks. The only difference is that instead of one actor hosting a party, that actor is acting like he/she is on a dating/bachelor game. they ask questions to the other three and they have to respond according to what the personality is.

Whose Line - Ryan and Collin usually play this game. What happens in this game is Ryan and Collin are given lines written on paper by the audience and they keep those lines in their pockets. Drew gives Ryan and Collin a scene and they act it out normally, anytime they want, they can bring out the lines in their pockets and say what it says. they have to act off of that.
