  1. Top 5 Unusual Party Games for Adults: Part 2

    August 13, 2015 by Faffy Tea

    Last year we put together a list of some very unique party games for big kids (i.e. adults!) – Read part 1.

    Well, now it’s time to list some more!

    1. CELEBRITY HUNT

    Unusual Party Game Idea Find a picture on the internet of a celebrity relevant to your party – the birthday boy/girl’s favourite star, or somebody who’s a bit of an inside joke for you and your friends. You’ll just need a shot of their head and shoulders, and preferably one where the celebrity is making a stupid or scary face (Arnie screaming in Kindergarten Cop works well – see photo!)

    Print out 20 or so pics of the celebrity image, and cut them out from their background (it will work best if they’re printed on to card).

    Hide the 20 celebrities around your house, so that they are peering out from cupboards, from behind the toilet cistern, out of a drawer, out of the toaster, in the fridge… anywhere that looks comical!

    Split your guests into teams and get them to find as many as they can. Once they find a celebrity they can remove them so the other team cant find them. The team who hunts the most celebrities wins!

    2. PASS IT ON – DRAWING GAME

    Pass it On Drawing Game This is a hybrid game, mixing Chinese Whispers with a Pictionary / Win, Lose or Draw style game!

    Prepare a number of word cards with people/places/songs/sayings/situations your guests will need to draw. Make them reasonably hard.

    Split your guests into two teams. You will need at least 6 people per team and even numbers in a team for this game to work well. Get the teams to arrange themselves in an order, and make sure that they are not sitting too close to each other. Give everyone in the team a pen and piece of paper.

    Let the first person in each team choose a different word card, and then give them 30 seconds to try to draw that word on their piece of paper, as best they can.

    When 30 seconds are up, the first person passes their drawing to the second person in their team. The second person looks at the drawing, hides it, and then writes down a guess of what the drawing is on their paper. This part is not timed.

    The second person passes their written guess to the third person. The third person is then given 30 seconds whilst they draw the second person’s guess on their piece of paper.

    When 30 seconds are up, the third person passes their drawing to the fourth person in their team. The fourth person looks at the drawing, hides it, and then writes down a guess of what the drawing is on their paper.

    … and so on until you get to the last member of the team. This member guesses out loud what they think the previous drawing is of. If they get it right they get a point!

    The game starts again with a different member of the team starting by picking a card.

    3. SKITTLES RELAY

    Unusual Party Game for AdultsSplit your guests into two teams.

    For each team set up a large bowl of Skittles (or another small sweet/biscuit variety).

    Also for each team set up a number of pieces of paper (50+) in another bowl, with a number between 1 and 8 written on each piece. The paper should be folded so guests can’t see the numbers.

    Make each team stand in a line and sound a bell or whistle to start! The team member at the front picks a piece of paper from the bowl and then has to count out and eat that exact number of Skittles from the bowl. They open their mouth to you to show that they have been eaten, then run to the back of the line and the next guest in the line picks from the bowl …and so on!

    The team wins when all of their Skittles have been eaten or they get through all of the pieces of paper.

    To make it harder:
    A. On the pieces of paper state a number AND a colour e.g. orange. So that guest not only has to eat the amount of Skittles but also has to pick out and eat only orange ones!

    B. Instead of numbers, on some of the pieces of paper make guests do a quick forfeit e.g. 5 Star Jumps or Give everyone in their team a high five! These guests will not eat any Skittles on that particular turn!

    4. WIND UP TOY RACE

    Toys Race Party Game Why go to the races when you can create your own?

    Buy a number of cheap wind-up toys in the same style, shape and size. Create a race track with individual lanes by using strips of tape on a table. (Or if you’re really clever, build a race track in a large wooden box with sides built up to split the lanes).

    Get your guests to pick a toy each, or even get them to place bets on which toy will win. Wind up the toys and start your race! The guest who backed the winner gets a prize.

    5. WATER GUN SHOOT OUT

    Unusual Outdoor Party Game

    This is a game for outdoors only!

    Buy some water guns/pistols and then set up a water shooting range, for guests to have a go at knocking down objects.

    Anything that water can knock down will work, but ping-pong balls on top of a line of beer bottles or golf tees works very well.

    Give guests a certain number of ‘shots’/squeezes to shoot off as many ping pong balls as they can.

    This new printable game will get the conversation flowing at your Hen Party, Bacherlorette Party or Bridal Shower.

    1990s Hen Party Game

    We have been inspired by ‘Saved by the Bell’ and ‘Dreamphone’ style graphics from the early nineties – kitsch, vintage and awesome (and a perfect Hen Party fancy dress theme too!). This game matches our 90s Hen Party Kit.

    There are 54 game cards, and each has a question to pose to an individual or to the group. There is a mix of interesting conversation starters, silly philosophical questions, ‘Would You Rather’s and a chance for some confessions!

    The last 18 cards (Nos. 37-54) are a little bit more risque, naughty or offensive. These cards have pink coloured tops and can be used when guests have gotten to know each other a little better.

    Also included in the £2 pack are ‘blank’ cards for adding your own questions!!!
