Party games for adults - Boxers or Briefs?

Whether you are looking to find out something new about old friends or trying to find a fun way to introduce strangers at a gathering, this party game for adults isfor you. Draw some cards and choose two statements to describe the 'victim'. One that describes him accurately and another that is just something fun. These statements must then be read out by the subject, leading to hilarious and outlandish declarations!

A revealing party game for adults only!

 I've Never...The game of truth really is a party game just for the adults. To get the party really going, try this revealing game that will uncover your friends deepest secrets. To win this game you need to be prepared to share those well hidden facts about yourself that you hoped would never come out. As the cards are drawn they will ask 'Ive never' questions such as ' I've never...been skinny dipping'. If you have been skinny dipping then you get to continue around the board.

As forfeits, or on random assigned squares on the board, you must take a drink. For non-drinkers, with a little imagination you could invent alternative forfeits. There are few more party games for adults that will truly leave you with an evening to remember than 'Ive never...The game of truth'.

Make your adult party game a crime scene!

Send your personalised invitations out to your friends/suspects with details of what to wear and the character they must take on for the evening. Prepare the themed menu, decorate the venue and allow the enclosed DVD or CD to guide you through the murder and investigation. With your guests acting out the roles this adult party game will guarantee you a brilliant evening of fun, suspense and the identity of the murderer!

An award winning party game for adults

Apples to Apples is an award winning game that is fun for adults and families alike. The premise of the game is to make unlikely connections between words and things. Match your best fitting adjective card to the noun of the 'judge'. You will need to be creative and expect the absurd. You will also need to be prepared to defend your decision and convince the judge you have the best match. Win as many rounds as possible and take your turn as the judge.

This game is a fantastic ice breaking game for parties or simply to encourage your younger family members to be creative and 'think outside the box'. So educational can this game be that it won a special citation from Mensa.

      You have some nice ideas here. When organizing a party, I always have the problem that the people I invite are always loss friends and acquaintances that don’t know each other and have not many things in common (as opposed to a group of friends that have a previous relation amongst them). These games are an excellent way to amalgamate strangers.
