Inside: Must have adult party games ideas that are essential for a fun time.

When it comes to hosting a party as an adult, adding a touch of excitement and laughter can take the celebration to a whole new level. When I am planning a party for my friends and me, I make it a point to go above and beyond when it comes to the games.

One of the most beautiful things about living in today is how many game options you have!

Seriously, I swear there is a new game or fun trend happening every week. There are constantly new things to try, but I think it’s important to mix some classics in with the newbies. So here’s my list of favorite adult party games ideas that are always a hit!

I am constantly adding to this, but as of right now, I have my top 10 games that are sure to make your party one to remember.

If you are in need of some inspiration, I know you will find it below! I am still riding my high from creating an awesome list of poop party ideas adults will love, so you know these will be good.

Adult Party Games Ideas

Alright, people, this is not a drill. You are throwing a party and are in need of some serious entertainment that will both get your guests out of their shells and help create some memories! That is where my favorite adult party games ideas come in.

I would recommend picking 2-3 games to choose from!

1. Cards Against Humanity

Cards Against Humanity has become a staple in adult party game collections for its irreverent and often hilarious gameplay. This game involves players filling in the blanks of statements using cards with outrageous or politically incorrect phrases. It’s perfect for those who enjoy dark humor and enjoy pushing the boundaries of good taste.

That’s why it’s the perfect game for me and my friends! Seriously, if you enjoy a good laugh…this is the game for you.

2. The “What Do You Meme?” Game

I am such a Meme girl, so you know why this is so high on my list.

By combining popular internet memes with classic caption contests, “What Do You Meme?” challenges players to create the funniest captions for a given image. This game taps into the current cultural zeitgeist, making it a great choice for parties where guests are well-versed in internet culture.

These days, who isn’t?

3. Themed Beer Pong

I told you I wanted to mix in some classics here. Beer Pong is always a crowd-pleaser, so it’s the ultimate adult party games idea!

But I want to bump this up a notch by making it themed beer pong. Whatever the theme of your party is, make your game of pong match!

Set up a table with cups arranged in a triangle shape and have teams take turns attempting to throw ping pong balls into their opponents’ cups. The team that eliminates all the opposing cups first wins. You can even create variations by using different types of beverages or adding extra challenges; this is what I like to do to make it feel even more fun.

4. Adult Themed Pictionary

Put your drawing skills to the test with a lively game of Adult Pictionary. Divide your guests into teams and provide them with a whiteboard or easel, markers, and a list of adult-themed words or phrases to draw. The challenge is to convey the word or phrase to your team members through drawings alone. The team that guesses the correct answers wins the game.

This one can get seriously hilarious. Take it from me, the last time I added this game to the party schedule, it resulted in two of my friends nearly peeing their pants. I would call that an absolute win!

5. Name The Celebrity

My close friends and family are all pretty big on celebrity media, so we like to challenge our knowledge with a good game of Name the Celebrity. For this game, you are going to draw a celebrity name out of a bowl and then try and describe them to your partner or group in under a minute without saying their name!

Party Game To Play With Friends

I am upping the anti now. If the games above made you yawn(which I would find shocking), then I think the ideas below are more your speed. 

6. The Name Game

I love the Name Game because it’s a fun icebreaker that gets everyone mingling and laughing. Each guest writes down the name of a well-known person or character on a piece of paper and pins it to the back of another guest.

The goal is to mingle and ask yes or no questions to figure out the identity written on your own back. The first person to correctly guess their assigned name wins.

7. Two Truths and a Lie

Here is another classic party game, but this one encourages storytelling and deception. Two Truths and a Lie is a nostalgic game for me, and I love playing it as an adult.

If you somehow didn’t play this in your childhood, let me explain the rules: each person takes turns sharing two true statements and one false statement about themselves. The other players must try to guess which statement is the lie. This game often leads to surprising revelations and amusing anecdotes.

8. Minute to Win It Challenges:

Fun minute to win it games are all the rage these days with teens. I totally see why; they’re too much fun!

Set up a series of fast-paced, one-minute challenges using household items. Examples include stacking cookies on the forehead, moving cookies from the forehead to the mouth without using hands, or transferring ping pong balls from one cup to another using only a spoon. The player who completes the most challenges within the allotted time wins.

9. Karaoke Battle

I like to give myself the chance to be a pop star whenever I can. So I have to add this Karaoke battle to the list! You may need a few drinks for this one!

Set up a karaoke machine or use a karaoke app on a smart TV, and have guests take turns belting out their favorite tunes. You can even turn it into a friendly competition by having judges or voting for the best performance.

10. Mixology Challenge

Speaking of drinks, set up a mini bar with various alcoholic and non-alcoholic ingredients. Each player takes turns being the bartender and has to create a unique and tasty cocktail for the other players to try. The players rate each cocktail, and the bartender with the highest score wins.
