Inside: Enjoyable 21 TikTok Party Games and Challenges.
TikTok has soared in popularity over the last two years. At the height of COVID-19, it became the most downloaded app in the world as people spent more time at home.
This is especially impressive because it’s a completely new category of app, and was released only in 2016.
TikTok is an app where users can share short, creative, and hilarious videos of themselves or other people. New party games and challenges are released and become viral almost every minute, but some that have become a staple are 10 Second Storytelling, Now Look At This, If I Was You Dance Challenge, and Duet Me.
Since TikTok is so popular, it’s also perfect for parties because it makes everyone dance, sing, and share specific information that not everyone knows!
Here are 21 fun TikTok party games and challenges that everyone will enjoy, along with important hashtags you need to use in your video’s caption:
