Fun Games That Will Spice Up Your Party!

Here is a list of ten fun birthday games that your adult friends, family members, and colleagues will enjoy:

1. Who Am I?

You can already guess it is all about “guessing” from the name!

In this game, one team decides on an actual person, animal, or character from a movie and asks a person from the other team to pretend or draw on a piece of paper. The rest of the teammates have to make the correct guess. It is up to you if you allow a single guess or extend it to three or four to make the game easy.

Want to spice it up? Since you must team up with the guests, you can also arrange fun penalties for the losing team.

3. Truth and Dare

From college campuses to family gatherings, the “truth and dare” game has never lost its appeal. Almost everyone knows how to play, and the fun part is the level of the game lies with your guests. Like there can be some simple questions or dares, someone may offer a crazy dare like “swallow a spoonful of cinnamon.”

4. Two Truths and A Lie

Who likes a silent and not-so-lively party? But, if your guests don’t know each other, you will feel the fun missing without a doubt.

How about finding some cool icebreakers? Something that will allow your guests to know each other better.

Two truths and a lie is a perfect adult party game. One of the guests will tell two truths and a lie in any order of their choice. The others would identify the lies and truth. You can play this game with two to ten players and more. You can have as many rounds as you want.

5. Don’t Say Yes

It is a taboo word game, which may sound easy but can be challenging even for adults.

In this game, the guests need to talk to each other, and, in the conversation, they cannot use the word “yes.” Add more taboo words or numbers to make the game even more fun. You can use a secret taboo word for each guest, and each time they use the word or expression, it will cause a deduction in point.

You may decide on a fun penalty for the person with the lowest score by the end of the game.

6. Story Starters

A story starter can be the best option if your birthday party is more of a gathering of your close friends and family members.

You may make small groups for this game if too many guests are at the party. Here, one of the guests starts a story, and others continue it by adding a line of their own. It may turn out to be something hilarious, and you may find your guests with you rolling on the floor while laughing.

7. Minute-To-Win-It

It was initially from a game show, where the participants needed to complete a task within a minute to win. However, it is an excellent party game for adults. You can plan these tasks or let the guests decide impromptu.

A task within one minute might sound easy, but the chance of them messing it up is undoubtedly high. So get ready to hear your party hall echoing laughter every other minute.

8. The Wooden Spoon

If you are only having your colleagues or college friends come to your birthday party, this game will be the perfect addition to your party. You list books, animals, movies, and celebrities and keep an odd one on that list. Your guests have to find out which one is odd. To make it fun, you can make it a team game. When one team makes the list, the other guesses.

A party without music is a vibe killer! How about using it as a game to spice up the party?

This game is simple; just like the name suggests, you can play a song or piece of tune on the speaker or play on the instrument if you wish.

The guests should guess the tune’s name or song and sing it. This game is a favorite of many because it can help your guests to break their shells and show off their talent. Setting a scoring system and penalty is up to you. But don’t forget to make them fun!
