4 Hilariously Fun Party Games for Adults
1.Watch Ya’ Mouth. This is a hilarious, mouth guard party game. In this laughter-inducing, competitive card-based game, teams of players wearing these awkward cheek retractors, attempt to read odd-ball phrases out loud and from there the hilarity ensues!
You can have an unlimited players when played using the “Alternate” rule set. This game is a must have for any gathering, party, game night or family night. Be forewarned that severe stomach-cramping and crying from being bent over in laughter is a very common occurrence. Play it for hours and create lasting memories with your friends and family. Welcome to the party! PS: There is also a family friendly version and an adult version.
2. Pass The Orange. Grab an orange and stand in a line or cit in a circle. The game is easy: place the orange under the chin of the first person, who must then pass it to the next person and place it under their chin, without using hands. See how far you can get. Give a forfeit to the person who drops the orange. As an alternative, you can also do this in two or more teams and see which team passes the orange down the line first. When it comes to party games for adults this is a super pick. Check out the video below!
Pass the orange is an excellent ice breaker at party!
3. Sing Song Pong. Play time – 20-40 minutes. Materials Needed: Good Imagination and or iPod/Cell Phone/Music Device.
If you’ve seen the movie Pitch Perfect then I’m sure you remember the memorable scene where they have a “riff off” in the empty pool where the a cappella groups are battling it out to see who’s the best at improvising songs that continue off other team’s lyrics. Well that’s exactly what Sing Song Ping Pong is.
How to Play: Decide whether you want to divide your group into teams or you want to play as individuals. Personally I find this game works great as a guys vs girls game if you have around even numbers or its a couples night.
To start the game have each team flip a coin. The starting team/person can pick a song at random from their head to begin singing or use the shuffle feature on their iPod/phone/music player to start the game. The other team(s) or players can jump in at any time with a word from the current song and start singing their own song. For example if you shuffled your music and ended up with Michael Jackson’s Bilie Jean, we’d start in singing and get to
“She told me her name was Billie Jean, as she caused a scene
Then every head turned with eyes that dreamed of being the one
Who will dance on the floor in the round..”
Then the next team will jump in at at “dance” with Fall Out Boy’s “Dance dance, we’re falling apart to half time Dance Dance, and these are the lives you you’d love to lead..” And we could pop back in on “love” with Hozier’s Take me to Church “But I love it, command me to be well.”
The game continues until one team or person can finish out their song. Feel free to make a judgement call and stop the game if the song continues on and everyone else is stumped and can’t jump back in even if the song isn’t finished. At this point that team or person who was still singing is awarded a point. Play continues until one team or player reaches 5 or 10 points (this will depend on your group and how fast points rack up).
4. Two Truths and a Dream Wish (or Two Truths and a Lie) This game is a get-to-know-you icebreaker for people of all ages and works best with 6-10 people, although you can do pretty much any group setting. No special materials are needed, although pencil and paper is optional.
Two Truths and a Dream Wish is a variation of the classic get-to-know-you icebreaker, Two Truths and a Lie. For Two Truths and a Lie, the players tell two truths and one lie. The object of the game is to to determine which statement is the false one.
Instructions for Two Truths and a Dream Wish: Ask all players to get themselves in a circle. Instruct each player to think of three statements about themselves. Two must be true statements, and one must be a wish. That is, something that is not true — yet something that the person wishes to be true. For example, someone that has never been to Ireland might say: “I often travel to Ireland for vacation.”
Each person will share the three statements (in any order) to the group. The goal of this game is to determine which statement is the wish. The group votes on which one they feel is a wish, and at the end of each round, the person reveals which one was the wish. This game can often lead to unexpected, fascinating results, as people often share touching wishes about themselves.
