14 fun party games for adults you can play this Christmas
Christmas is finally here and all the fun associated with the festival too. Besides snuggling up in a comfy blanket sipping hot chocolate and ripping through presents, it’s the fun and hilarious games that really get us into the Christmas spirit.
Today we’ve put together a list of hilarious board games for adults that you can play this Christmas for pure fun! Ready? Let’s go!
1. Christmas Alphabet Drinking Game
You can play this game with your friends physically or even virtually. In this fun game, the first person starts by naming something Christmas-related that starts with the alphabet “A”, such as angels. The second person says something that starts with the alphabet ‘B’ like bells and so on. It can be a name, a song or an item. Whoever takes too long or hesitates, drink drink drink!
2. The Shots dialogue game
Turn on your TV and watch any Christmas movie you want. Prepare your drinks and take a sip every time someone says “Christmas”. Drink all the drink when a song comes on. At the end of the game, everyone would be well watered!
3. The Santa Hat Drinking Game
Oh, so you’re the lazy type? Well, no worries. We also have something for you. All you have to do is grab a Santa hat and hang it from one (or both) corners of your TV screen. Every time someone “carries” it on screen, you have to drink. Sounds easy but fun, right?
4. Reindeer Antler Inflatable Ring Toss Game
Each person in the group must come forward and wear the reindeer headgear. The other people in the group took turns throwing small rings at these inflatable sticks. If one of the rings lands on the headgear, the reindeer must drink. If not, the person tossing it drinks their drink.
5. Drink if gambling
It’s time to get creative, y’all. Choose a nice festive paper, colorful pens and write funny situations like “drink if you’re wearing a red sweater” or “drink if you kissed someone under the mistletoe”. Then have everyone choose a card one by one and let the fun begin.
6. Christmas Charades Game
Whatever the occasion, we have all played charades with our friends and family. To add a festive touch, keep all Christmas-themed clues, phrases, and movie titles.
7. The Carolling Challenge Game
It’s an easy game you can play anywhere, from a home meeting to a virtual zoom party. For this game, everyone sits in a circle and one person starts the game by singing a line from a holiday song (you can also sing Bollywood songs instead of Christmas carols). The person sitting next to the right should sing the next line of that song and so on. The person who forgets the next line or takes a long pause drinks their entire drink.
8. Game of Two Truths and a Lie: Christmas Edition
In this popular icebreaker game, a person would tell two truths and one lie about their party experiences. Everyone would then guess which one is real and which one is not. If they don’t guess, they have to drink their whole cup.
9. Five-Second Rule Game
This is a super fun game that you should definitely play with your gang. In this game, each player has only five seconds to answer a holiday-themed question. These questions can be like naming three popular Christmas movies or three Christmas songs. Sounds easy, right? However, it becomes more difficult under pressure.
10. Most likely to play
It’s a game best played with a group of friends who know each other fairly well. For this game, everyone should sit in a circle and one person in the group asks a “most likely to” question. Questions can be something like ‘who is most likely to marry their high school sweetheart?’ or ‘who is most likely to pass out on the floor tonight?’. Each would now indicate who they think is most likely to do what has been mentioned. This person, who is being singled out, has to have a drink.
11. Flip, sip or strip game
This game is ideal for couples or friends with whom you are extremely comfortable. All you need is a coin and lots of alcohol. That’s right. Take turns tossing a coin and guessing which side it is on. If you mess up, you either have to take a sip or take off a piece of clothing. Playing this game on a cold Christmas night sounds really fun, right?
12. Music Blueprints Game
Remember how we used to play musical chairs at our childhood birthday parties? Well, this game now has a grown-up kick and it’s a lot of fun too. Everyone in the group should fill their shot glasses and let the Christmas songs play. The player holding the glass when the music stops shoots.
13. The Witch’s Beer Game
Well, the name of this game says it all. Each player in the party whips up a concoction of weird things mixed with alcohol in a mug, like powdered chocolate, ketchup, or mayonnaise and name it something Christmas. The special drink is then passed on to the person sitting to your right. If they manage to swallow the witch’s brew then everyone takes a shot and if they can’t then they take a shot.
14. I have never played
Finally, an oldie but a goodie. You can never go wrong with this iconic game. It’s the same fun game Bunny plays with his friends. Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani. If you still don’t know how to go about it, let me explain. All you have to do is sit in a circle and the person who would start the game has to say “I have never *insert something fun that she has never done*”. It could be something like never having a one-night stand or having sex in a public place. Everyone in the group who did this thing will swallow their drink. Simple, right?
