Best Party Games

Party games are quick easy games often played with large groups of people (and sometimes with a generous amount of liquor). They are always the highlight of any party that I go to and I have a few easy picks for my top party games. This list goes beyond just those few that I personally play and includes all ages party games, and some other classic ones that are oldies but goodies.

1 Cards Against Humanity

cards against humanity review

Cards Against humanity is the adult party game that everyone should own and have played. It tells you just how dirty minded your friends (and family) are and is a great way game to play after a few drinks.

Card against humanity revolutionized adult party games and though many others have tried to emulate its formula, nothing beats this classic. So get your friends together and laugh until your sides hurt with this raunchy and very un PC game.

4 Exploding Kittens

Exploding kittens was first funded through kickstarter in 2015 and since then has become one of the most popular card games for kids and adults. It’s fast paced and explosive game play keeps players on their toes as they try to gain defuse cards and sabotage fellow players in order to be the last person standing.

Exploding kittens is truly on of the funniest and craziest card games I have had the pleasure to play and I highly recommend it to casual and non-casual players.

5 Code Names

codenames review

Codenames is a team versus team game that is great to play with larger groups of people. It’s a fairly simple concept where the team leader of each team is trying to get their team members to guess the correct code words.

Codenames is a great communication game which also engages your puzzle solving and interpretation abilities as you and your team try to guess all the correct Codenames before the other team. I highly recommend this game for adults and especially at big family gatherings.

6 Secret Hitler

secret Hitler review

Have you ever wanted to experience the political intrigue and betrayal of Germany’s political system in the 1930s? Well now you can with this fully historically accurate representation which pits the players against each other as liberals and fascist.

The fascists, who know who each other are, try their best to sew chaos with the liberals and get their supreme leader Hitler elected as chancellor. The liberals must do their best to find and kill Hitler before it’s too late!

7 Anomia

anomia review

Anomia is a fast word association card game that literally anyone from 10 years and up can play. Even the most intellectual person will fumble when under pressure as they try to think of a type of fish before the other player can think of a pop song.

It really feels like an even playing field, age makes no difference, only your ability to perform under pressure!

I highly recommend this for anyone and everyone as both a great party game, and a great card game to play with friends and family.

8 Geek Out

geek out review

Geek out is the ultimate geeky trivia game where players are asked to list a certain number of things based on the category and subject that was asked.

There are 5 categories in Geek Out: Comic books, fantasy, games science fiction, and miscellaneous. The goal is to not only guess the amount listed on the card, but to also out bid the other players and win the card.

Geek Out is a great way to test your knowledge against your friends and see who the ultimate Geek is.

9 Apples to Apples

apples to apples review

Apples to Apples was like the pre-curser to Cards against humanity.

It’s a fun card game where players are trying to match description cards to things cards with some hilarious results.

I played this a lot when I was younger and had a lot of fun with my friends in high school trying to get the most cards to win.

10 Twister

twister review

Twister is the classic contortion party game where the aim is to be the last person standing. Great for kids, couple, adults who may have had a drink or two, and everyone in between. Twister is the game that gets you off your feet and on the twister sheet!

Players take turns spinning the wheel and keep moving and placing hands and feet until one (or everyone) falls over so try to be the last person standing and win!
