Birthday Party Games for Adults

The Best Birthday Party Games for Adults

Drop a Hint: Three people work together to get their teammate to guess a word, each person saying one word at a time!

Don’t Say Yes: You’ve probably heard of those taboo word games before, but this one will be quite the challenge. Guests aren’t allowed to use the word, yes, or any variation of it. You can have them wear a sticker or a yarn necklace if they say the word during the party. It will be fun to see who’s the most “decorated” at the end of the night.

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!

Great Minds Think Alike: Great Minds Think Alike is a game where you want to choose what you think everyone else will choose: the more people who get the same answer, the more points those people will kit.

Birthday Party Games for Adults

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!

Who am I?: Who Am I? is a guessing game where you act or draw the famous person on the slip of paper that you drew. Can your teammates guess who you’re pretending to be?

Spoons: Spoons is a card game that’s great for any age or group of people. It’s fun and fast but still a card game that everyone can play.

Adult Birthday Party Games

Not SO Newlywed Game: The Not So Newlywed Game is the perfect way to entertain your friends at your next couples event. It can also be played at wedding showers and engagement parties.

Kiss, Marry, Kill: This game of Kiss Marry Kill is a less personal touch on the original game because you use fictional characters or celebrities for your choices.

Never Have I Ever: The classic game of Never Have I Ever had to be included in this list of party games for adults. With 400+ questions, there are some fresh ideas here that your guests won’t be expecting. Besides the huge number of questions, there’s also a drinking game variation, penalty variation, and a non-alcoholic variation.

Two Truths and A Lie: Two Truths and a Lie can be a great game for all ages, and it makes for a fun icebreaker for a group that may not know each other very well.

React & Act: React, and Act is an icebreaker game that will have your guests acting and reacting to different situations such as winning the lottery or getting fired.

The Bowl Game: This is the most hilarious ice breaker game for birthday parties. It is totally one of the best games and one of my all-time favorites.
