Hello! Here we have our collection of The 35+ Best Party Games for Adults and we hope you like them

These fun party games for adults are really some of my favorite party games ever, not just fun games for adults! They’re perfect for an adult game night or anytime you need some fun group games! 

These funny party games are perfect for adults, for teens, or even for a women only party! They’re perfect for an indoor family night, a college game night without drinking, a birthday party, or change up the words and use them for a large group at a bachelorette party. I can’t wait to try #2! 

FUN ADULT GAMES

One of my favorite things to do is host an adult game night! We typically play one or two of these board games for adults and then one of the two adult party games below! Or if it’s an outdoor party, we play these fun outdoor games along with one of the games from this list.

These are some of the most fun games for adults because they’re designed for you to just have fun and not worry about whether you look silly or not. They’re some of the most hilarious and fun party games for adults (or groups ever!) and would work for any ages – even a 50th birthday party!

Want to see these party games for adults in action? Check out the video below or on YouTube here. 

Balloon Volleyball

Unlike regular volleyball, using a balloon means you can play indoors without risk to furniture (or people). You can also play by sitting on the floor.

String up a net (with rope or a long bedsheet), and divide into two equal teams.

Start the game, by instructing the first team with the balloon to hit it across the net to the next team. The other team then hits it back
If a team fails to hit the balloon, or the balloon hits the floor – the opposite team scores a point
Set a time limit for each round.
The team with the highest score in a given series of rounds wins.

For extra mess, fill the balloon with shaving cream. But play outside.

Dancing Chain

Stand everyone in a circle, and nominate someone to start the dance chain. They do this, by making a simple dance move.

Such as? Waving their hands in the air. Or kick out a leg. Or jumping once.

Keep the move simple, as everyone else will need to copy it.

The player to their left then leads the circle, by repeating the move
Once the entire circle has done it, this new player repeats the move, before adding their own
The player to their left then leads the circle with the new move, and so on.
Keep the whole thing going, until an entire dance routine has been created. The game ends with the whole circle performing the routine together.

I’ve included a quick synopsis of each of the games below. If you’d like more details or free printable lists to use to play these games, click on the game name to be taken to more detailed instructions later on in the post! 



1- DROP A HINT
Three people work together to get their teammate to guess a word, each person saying one word at a time! Get full instructions and two free printable lists of words here.

2 – MOVIE ID
Players have to get their team to guess a movie title using a limited number of words before the other team can get their team to guess it! It’s kind of like the old school Name That Tune game show but with movies instead! Get full instructions and a free printable list of movie ideas here. 

3 – THE WOODEN SPOON
In this game, players have to figure out which item doesn’t belong from a list of categories in the words. Get a free printable list of categories and words here. Or the who can ring in first version of this game here!

4 – HOW DO YOU DOO
Teams have to compete to and try and get their team to guess a song by singing the song using only the word “doo.” Sounds easy but it’s actually pretty challenging and always hilarious. Get full instructions and a list of song ideas here. 

5 – NAME THAT TUNE
Play a song and see which team can guess the song title and artist first. It’s fast, fun, and one of my family’s all-time favorite games! Get full instructions and a great name that tune song list here.

6 – REVERSE CHARADES
We’ve all played charades where you have to act out a word to get your team to get it. In this reverse version, the entire team has to act out the word and one person guesses. It’s way more fun and a great option if you have people who may not want to act by themselves! Get full instructions and a list of word ideas here. 

7 – CELEBRITY
Everyone playing writes down popular celebrities to start the game. Teams then play three rounds using those celebrity names as words to guess. Each round is a little different and progressively more difficult, but also more fun! Get the full instructions here. 

8 – SPORCLE
This is one of my favorite New Year’s Eve games but can be played anytime of year! Pick a category with a finite list of answers (e.g., 2019 Oscar best picture nominees) and go around the circle having each person name something from the category. Can’t come up with something? You’re out. Get the full instructions and list ideas here. 

9 – ANYTHING YOU CAN DO, I CAN DO BETTER
How well can you decorate a cupcake or do a smokey eye? Teams watch “experts” perform a task then compete to do the same thing, better than the other team! Get full instructions and a fun list of “expert topics” here.

While we typically play this as one of our Christmas games, it could easily be played for any sort of game night as well. Wrap up treats, prizes, gift cards, and other items in a huge ball of saran wrap. Then see who wins the prizes as they try to unwrap the giant ball – but only if they don’t get one of the challenge cards along the way! Get full instructions and the challenge cards here. 

12 – THE GIFT CARD GAME
Put a bunch of small gift cards in a circle. Players have to roll the dice to try and get a 7 or 11 and win a gift card from the middle. But beware, if someone else rolls one on their turn, they may steal your gift card leaving you with nothing! Get full instructions for one of the best birthday party games here (just switch candy with small gift cards). 

13 – WOULD YOU RATHER?
Would you rather hike Mt. Everest or swim with sharks? Would you rather have lunch with Thor or Spiderman? Players have to pick one of two totally bizarre questions that in reality they may not want to do either! Get full instructions and fun would you rather questions here. 

14 – TRUTH OR DARE 
Bring back the classic truth or dare game at your next party and make it fun with these pre-written truth or dare questions! A clean version of the game that’s still really fun for adults! 

15 – NEVER HAVE I EVER
See who’s done the most bizarre things and who hasn’t. One person says something they’ve never done and anyone who has done it loses a point or puts up a finger – get to five points and you’re out. The most fun part of this game is trying to come up with things that will give the most people points (e.g., never have I ever broken a bone). Get some never have I ever questions ideas here. 

16 – PICTIONARY

If you don’t want to try reverse charades, how about one of these charades ideas instead? A number of different charades games that will have your team acting and laughing more than ever before! Get the full rules and ideas for other charades games here. 

18 – GUESS THE FOOD
Blindfold a player from each team and see who can guess the food on the plate in front of them first. First player to name the food wins a point for their team! Pick foods that are either hilarious to watch people eat or ones that are a bit challenging, or both. Get great food ideas and rules for this guess the food game here. 

19 – BOARD GAMES FOR ADULTS
Want something that’s a bit more structured? Any of these board games for adults would be perfect for an adult game night! With both strategic game options and board games based on luck, these adult games are great for any group!

ADULT PARTY GAMES



GUESSING GAMES FOR ADULTS

DROP A HINT INSTRUCTIONS

You may have seen this game in the TV show Celebrity Game Night or even on the Game Show Network Show Chain Reaction! The basic idea is that one person guesses while the other three people work together to get their teammate to guess a word, each person saying one word at a time.

This one can be really funny when the people providing the hints are not on the same page at all! One of my favorite party games for adults ever!

Supplies Needed:

  1. Slips of paper (probably about 1/4 sheet of paper for each) or index cards, each with a word/phrase of your choice written in large letters so the team can see.  I’ve put together a sample list here that you can print ! Or you can use this one that one of my readers (thanks Rachael!) made for me that is already sized to print for index cards. Or use cards from a game like Reverse Charades instead! If you’re having a themed party, use words that reflect your theme like monster mash, jack-o-lantern, Haunted Mansion, etc for a Halloween party.
  2. Timer

HOW TO PLAY:

Split your group into two teams with at least four people. Only one team will play at a time while the other team watches. We will call our teams Team A and Team B.

Team A chooses one person to be the guesser. The rest of Team A should stand up next to a table with the pile of cards or papers on it, standing shoulder to shoulder in a line.

When you say go, the standing members of Team A will try to get the guesser to guess the word on the card by saying one word, per person, at a time.

For example if the word was pumpkin, teammate #1 might say orange, teammate #2 might say Halloween, teammate #3 might say squash. Teammates continue to give one word hints in the same order (1, 2, 3) to the guesser until the guesser makes a guess. The guesser has ONE guess to get the right word. If they guess the wrong word, the team moves onto the next word.

Team A continues trying to guess words for two minutes, or however long you designate each round. Teams get one point for each word they guessed correctly.



Once the two minutes is up, switch over to Team B and give them two minutes to guess.

After both Team A and Team B have gone once, switch the guesser for Team A and play again. Repeat until each person on each team has been the guesser or for the number of rounds you designate at the beginning of the game.

HOW TO WIN:

Keep track of the number of correct answers each team gets each round. The team with the most points at the end of all the rounds wins!


ADULT PARTY GAMES



10 hilarious party games for adults that would work great for teens or for groups too! Play indoor or outdoor at a family reunion or birthday party! It doesn’t matter, they’re funny either way! And best of all, no drinking or alcohol required!

MOVIE ID INSTRUCTIONS

This game is like the game show Name that Tune except you’re naming movies instead! Well sort of, it’s a bit more complicated than that but if you like movies, this is a great one for your group!

Supplies Needed:

  1. Notecards or quarter sheets of paper with movie titles. I’ve put together a list of movies to get your started. If you’d prefer to play with something other than movies, be creative and come up with your own list of items.
  2. Buzzer



HOW TO PLAY:

Split your group into two teams and put a buzzer on a table at the front of the room where you’ll be standing.

Explain to players that they will be trying to get their team to guess a movie title using a limited number of words. The catch is that they will be going head to head with the other team to bid on who gets to play each movie title. Each player will see the movie title and determine how many words they need to use to get their team to guess the movie. They will battle against one another to determine who can get their team to guess the movie in the least amount of words.

Ask one player from each team to come up to the front and stand on either side of the table.

Show both players the first movie title card at the same time. The first player to hit the buzzer will give their bid first. So for example if the movie was Forrest Gump a player might grab the buzzer and say four (Hanks, box of chocolates). If the other team thinks they can do it in less, they can say any number less than four. Players will go back and forth bidding until one team concedes to the other team and lets the other player take the bid.

The player who wins the bid will then try to get their team to guess the movie in the number of words they bid. So if the final bid for Forrest Gump was two, they might say Hanks, Bubba. A team only has one chance to guess the right movie.

Repeat with two new players from opposing teams until everyone has had a chance or until your movie list runs out.

HOW TO WIN: 

The player with the most points at the end of the game wins! One point for each correctly guessed movie.

Movie ID is one of the most fun adult games

THE WOODEN SPOON INSTRUCTIONS

In this game, players will have to try to be the first to pick out “which one doesn’t belong” from a list of words in a given category! If they get it right, they keep playing. If not, they’re out!

SUPPLIES NEEDED:

List of categories/items (see below) – here’s a free sample list to get you started on ideas. The words highlighted in purple are the out of place words.
A Wooden Spoon (wooden ones work better because the edges aren’t quite as sharp!)

FOR THE CATEGORY LISTS: 

Put together a list of items that fall into a particular category.

For instance, books written by Jane Austen might include Pride & Prejudice, Emma, Persuasion, etc. Add three items to the list (in random order) that do NOT fall into that category. It’s better if you can come up with ones that might seem like they fit the list but don’t. So your Jane Austen list might look like this once you’re done.

  1. Pride & Prejudice
  2. Emma
  3. Wuthering Heights
  4. Mansfield Park
  5. Of Mice and Men
  6. etc.
Create as many category lists as rounds you will be playing, which is typically the number of people in your group minus 1!



HOW TO PLAY: 

Split your group into two teams and put a wooden spoon in between the two teams.

Explain to the teams that you will be giving them a category and a list of items. Tell them that some of the items will fit into that category and others won’t. As soon as they hear an item that does NOT fit in the category, they should run to the middle and grab the wooden spoon then tell you which item was not correct on your list.

If they are wrong, they are out and have to go sit in a designated area for players who are out. If they are correct, they choose someone from the opposite team to be out and go back to their team to continue playing.

If someone guesses wrong, continue on with the same list you were using until someone gets one right.

If you get to the end of your list and no one has guessed the incorrect answer, read through the list one more time and give people a chance to guess which ones were wrong if they want.

If no one has a clue, scrap that list and move on to your next one.

HOW TO WIN:

Continue playing until all team members from one team are out. The winning team is the team with a player left standing (like dodgeball).


MUSICAL PARTY GAMES FOR ADULTS

HOW DO YOU DOO INSTRUCTIONS

Teams will compete to try and get their team to guess a song by only singing the word “doo.” You might think this game sounds easy but it’s not so easy when you’re on the spot! Definitely one of the funniest adult game night games I’ve ever played!

Supplies Needed:

  1. Notecards or 1/4 sheets of paper with song names that most people will know – sample list here or you can use this one that one of my readers (thanks Rachael) created for me that is sized and ready for index cards. OR here’s a Christmas specific song list!
  2. Timer

HOW TO PLAY:
Split your group into two teams. Only one team will be playing at a time while the other watches.

Team A should choose one person to start as their singer. Have them stand at the front of the room next to a bowl filled with slips of paper with song titles.

When you say go, the player from Team A will look at the first song and try to get their team to guess the song by singing it using only the word “Doo.” No acting or doing anything other than singing the word “doo.”

If someone doesn’t know the song at all, they can skip and pick a new song out of the bowl. Make sure to put that song back in and not tell anyone what the song was they skipped though so they can guess it when it comes back up!

The other players on Team A can guess as many times as they want to try and get the right song. Whoever guesses the correct song becomes the new singer.

Team A continues rotating through players and guessing as many songs as they can for five minutes (or whatever time limit you decide). You earn one point for each correctly guessed song.

Once the time is up, switch over to Team B and let them try!

HOW TO WIN:
The team with the most points at the end of the game wins. You can either play one lon
