One of the most popular game is dividing the guests into two teams. Each of the teams would have their designated color for their balloons. It could be the green team vs. the red team. Each team member would have a balloon with their color tied around their waists. The object of the game is for the using their players of both teams to shoot as many of their opponent's balloons as using their Nerf guns. A player whose balloon has been popped out would leave the game. The winning team would be with the most players with unpopped balloons until the end.

One method is to modify the suction cup at the end by breaching the latex and put a staple on the end, and its velocity won't break the skin and don't fire at close-range. 

Another improvisation is by removing the soft head of your Nerf dart and placing a push pin in the middle of the soft head and to glue the soft head back on. Use a Nerf gun that won't be problematic when the length is added.
