How to Play: Press conference is a unique party game for adults that can be played with any size group, with hilarious results. One guest holds a press conference, and the other guests get to ask them questions. Have that person leave the room. Everyone else decides on a character that this person will be in the “Press Conference.” (You could have a bowl of characters or decide together). The person holding the press conference answers the question, but the twist here is that they have no idea who they are supposed to be but the other guests do. The person has to try and figure out who they are from the questions that are asked by the group (while answering those questions!) For example, if Jim went out of the room and we chose for him to be Bugs Bunny, we could ask “How many carrots do you eat a day?” “What fuel do you use for your sleigh?” “How do you hide from Elmer Fudd?” “Do you feel very old?” “Who is your favorite Looney Tune?”
Supplies: Wrapped chocolate bar, oven mitts, hat, scarf, a knife, fork, dice
How to Play: This game is hilarious for an adult party, and you only need a few items to play. You need a wrapped chocolate bar, some oven mitts, a hat, a scarf, a knife, a fork, and a single dice. Going around a circle, each person gets a chance to roll the dice trying to get a six. When a player rolls a six they will put on the hat, scarf, and mitts and attempt to cut the chocolate with the knife and fork. Their turn ends when another player rolls a six when it will be their turn to take over. The game is over when all of the chocolate is gone!
How to Play: This party game for adults works best in groups of 4 to 6 people so if you have a large gathering, break your number of players up into groups. The idea is to give each group a piece of paper with a story starting sentence, and then have each person add one sentence to the story. You never know what kind of hilarious story you will end up with at the end.
Some story starting sentences you might use include:
“Once upon a time, I…”
“The dumbest thing I ever did was…”
“My perfect vacation would be…”
“My favorite place to visit was…”
“The dumbest thing I ever did was…”
“If I could be anything it would be…”
“The craziest thing I have ever done is…”
“If my life were a book, I would title it…”
Supplies: Paper, pen, pencil
Don’t Say Yes
How to Play: This is one of the best games for an adult party, you have probably heard of the game Taboo, and this is similar. Your guests aren’t allowed to say “yes” or any variation of it (yeah, fine, sure, etc.) when answering questions or in conversation. Anytime the word “yes” is used the guest gets a sticker. Whoever has the most stickers at the end of the night is the loser. Win or lose it’s hilarious to see people try to have conversations without the words “yes.”
Bag of Bad News
How to Play: In this funny drinking game for adults, you will get a bunch of miniature bottles of alcohol. The size you find on airplanes. Number the bottles in a multiple number of party guests. For example, you can have bottles numbered 1 to 30 for 10 guests. In this example, each player would pick 3 numbers for a deck of handwritten cards numbered 1 to 30. Then they are assigned the bottles that correspond with the numbers. The goal is for them to drink that bottle during the party. No real winner but this activity has as a drinking icebreaker game. Drink responsibly.
Supplies: Numbered miniature airplane bottles of liquor, numbered cards, bag
How to Play: In this card game, have one less spoon then players in the center of a circle. The goal is for each player to get four cards of a kind. All contestants have four cards to start. The dealer takes a card off the top of the deck to have five cards in their hand, removes one and passes it face down to the left. Each player discards to the person on their left. Cards are picked up and placed down quickly. When one player gets four of a kind, they grab a spoon then all other players must grab a spoon too. The player left without a spoon gets a letter. First person to spell S-P-O-O-N is out and has to eat a yucky thing on the spoon.
Supplies: Spoons, deck of cards
How to Play: Pictionary is a fun drawing game for a small party of mixed ages. Best of all, drawing abilities don’t have to count for this game and in fact, the worse someone draws, the more hilarious the game becomes. Split players into teams.

The winning team has the most points at the end of the game.

How to Play: This icebreaker game is a great way to get to know each other—really fast. All players sit in a circle and hold up 10 fingers. One at a time, players go around and say the phrase “Never have I ever…” completing the sentence with something they have not done. Anyone who has done the activity mentioned in the “Never have I ever . . .” statement, puts one finger down. As players put down all their fingers, they are eliminated from the game. Last person standing wins. The winner of the game is the last remaining player with a finger raised.
How to Play: This drinking game is played like beer pong, only classier, with Prosecco. Poor a bit of Prosecco in 12 plastic wine glasses. Six glasses in a triangle shape on opposite sides of a table. Each team takes turn throwing a ping-pong ball into the other team’s cups. Once a ball lands in a cup, the cup is taken away and the opponent then drinks the contents of the cup. If both teammates hit cups, the balls are rolled back and they get to shoot again. There is no looser.

Truth or Dare
How to Play: Play the traditional game of truth or dare or add this fun twist to make a classics kids game into an adult truth or dare game challenge.

The only thing that is allowed to touch the floor is your feet (no hands, no knees) and the only thing that is allowed to touch the box is your mouth. After every round, cut off an inch from the top of the box and play again. This game is like limbo in reverse. How low can you go?
Supplies: Cereal box, scissors
Two Truths and a Lie
How to Play: This ice breaker game is a great getting to know you game for early in the night. Pick 3 statements to tell about yourself. Example: “I have two siblings, I’ve been to three continents, and I love cats.” Two should be true; one should be a lie. Everyone else must guess which is the lie. If you’re playing with family or friends, pick obscure details to try to trick each other to make it even more fun.
How to Play: On cards (or paper or sticky notes), write down nouns (person, place or thing). Keep the noun Charades ideas in the topic of the age group or the theme of the season. In this classic game, split teams in two. Stack the cards or place them all in a bowl. One person acts out what’s on the card. Each team guesses what the player on their is acting out. Team that guesses the most correctly, wins.
Supplies: Paper, pencil, pen
How to Play: We hope you have a sense of humor but can keep a straight face. The funny game begins with each player writing down one sentence on a piece of paper, crumpling, and piling it at the center of the group. What kind of sentences? Ones that are ridiculous, awkward, hilarious or inappropriate; ones that anyone would struggle to read (or hear) while keeping a straight face. One at a time, each player will choose a slip of paper and attempt to read whatever is written on it without giggling or cracking a smile. If they fail, they are out (or take a shot or eat a yucky concoction.) Careful, laughter included.
Supplies: Paper, pen or pencils
React and Act
How to Play: Pass out sheets of paper and pens to the players. Have each person write an event. Tell them to be creative! Examples of events can include: Being surprised by a large, aggressive bear in the woods. You just won the lottery. You have just been proposed for marriage with a ring. You just got fired. You made a touch down at the Superbowl. You just fell in love. Once everyone writes an event, fold the paper once and place it into the bag. Divide the group into teams no larger than 5 people. During their turn, a team each gets a different action drawn from the bag. For thirty seconds they must act out their action. After time expires, the other members of the team try to guess what each persons action was. A point is awarded for each correct guess.
Supplies: Paper, pens, pencils
How to Play: This game has many names. Also known as Celebrity, The Name Game, or Salad Bowl. Similar to Charades and Taboo. The rules change each round. First, have a list of nouns and/or phrases written on cards. These will be used for the rounds. Split teams in two. Round 1: Taboo. Use words to describe the word or phrase on the card, without any acting or gestures. You cannot use any part of the word or phrase! Round 2: Charades. Without words or sounds, act and use gestures to communicate the word or phrase on the card. Round 3: Password. You can say exactly one word to describe the word or phrase on the card, no more! You’ll rely on your team’s ability to use association. The team that guesses the most cards across all rounds wins!
Supplies: Paper, pencil, pen
How to Play: One player, the answerer, picks an object. This can be something in the room or something obscure. All other players ask the answerer “Yes” or “No” questions to guess what the object is. If no one guesses correctly after 20 questions, the answerer has won and picks a new object for the next round. If someone guesses correctly they get to pick the object for the next round.
The (No-So) Newlywed Game
How to Play: In this fun couple game, the challenge is to see what couple knows the other person best. It’s played just like the Newlywed Game but this way couples who have been together for any length of time can take part in the fun. Prepare with a list of questions that take you through dating, engagement and the wedding, firsts, friends, and family, favorites, best and worst, finances, preferences, making love, fun facts, love and marriage, and the future. There’s even a category just for the funniest questions.
Supplies: Paper, pencils, pens
I’m Going to a Bar
How to Play: Just like the kid game “I’m Going on a Picnic.” The first person begins by saying, “I’m going to the bar and I need to get a mojito” (or any other alcoholic beverage). After that, the next player repeats the drink that the previous player(s) said… but adds another drink to the list, as well. Game continues with each person adding a drink to the list. You are out if you mess up the order of drinks. Last person standing is the winner.
Donuts & Cocktail Sticks
How to Play: This perfect game is a bit silly, a bit close. It is similar to pass the orange. Split teams in two. Create a line. Hand your players a cocktail stick, which they’re to put in their mouth. The first player now puts a donut on their cocktail stick and has to pass it onto the next teammate without it falling. No hands. Keep passing along the line. The last player who gets the donut, drops it in a bucket. Any donuts dropped during the passing, go back to the beginning of the line. Team who passes the most donuts at the end of time, wins.
Supplies: Donuts, cocktail sticks
