At a recent family party, we played a couple of classic ones, but they were pretty fun:

Cup Stacking and Collapsing

You have teams of two (as many as you’d like, but we just played with two at time). Each team has a stack of SOLO cups. One person on the team has to stack them as fast as they can, and then the other teammate has to collapse them onto each other without letting the cups fall. Whoever gets the fastest time gets the most points!

Cup Restacking

You have a stack of SOLO cups – all of them being the same color except for one. Whoever is competing has to be the first to restack all the cups on top of each other and get the differing color to the top of the pile first.
