Seriously. The tagline for the game Dirty Neighbors is This Game is Not For You. We're betting it's some reverse psychology marketing and not the kind of "not for you" that Mr. Koreander meant when he warned Bastian to leave his book alone... or is it? "Your games... are safe."
Cards Against Humanity, Babies Against Parenthood... some of the very best games pit the most random things against one another and I live for it. It's one of the best things about living in our time. I can play We Didn't Playtest This or What Do You Meme for HOURS and it's so much better than TV, fast food or even, sometimes, reality.
Hot Seat is a great game to play with people who know you well. It's a game guessing what YOU would say about yourself! You can still play it with people you don't know but it's more fun if you have a bunch of great inside stories to share.
Hosting a night of improv games is a great way to have a hilarious game night with family and friends. One really fun game to do with improv is the Body Hiding game. All you need are ten people. Four of them hide another with their body parts, scrambling to keep the person covered while the other people try to find the "hidden" person. Once the person is found, the rest of the people switch roles to do it again.
We have yet to play That's What She Said, but the game looks really fun.
If you love mad libs and raunchy humor, you will love the game Adult Mad Libs. It has gems like, "When I asked you to (verb) my (noun), I didn't think you'd really (same verb) my (same noun)." The catch is that you have to use the verb and noun cards that you get out of the deck to complete the sentences! With 42 sentence cards and 200 word cards, you'll have plenty of game time with this box.
Last week for my husband's birthday, we went to our favorite cheap pizza place for lunch and boardgames. They had a great pile of games and I totally sunk his Battleships twice while he beat me at Connect Four. We hadn't played the Game of Life in many years. We had so much fun playing this game!
Do you hate saying the word "moist"? Awkward Turtle is the game that will get you saying all of the awkward words that you hate saying! It's an easy to play game; all you have to do is give your team clues so they can guess your word. It's a very simple premise. Words that are awkward don't just sound but also look awkward. There are over 350 words in all, giving you lots of awkward words to work with!
If you love beer pong but it feels like the game is going stale, why not mix it up and try a new version of your favorite game? You can implement all kinds of cool old school games, like Battleship or even air hockey, into your game to make it more fun. Throw in a volleyball and some kegs or coolers for the ultimate game of volley pong--or giant beer pong!
Dignity? You don't need dignity at a game night. Who brings that? You need some giggles, and with that comes a mess.
One game you can play is a water relay where you put a bucket of water out and have two teams fill water bottles with the water as quickly as possible. The catch? They can only use their hands AND they must pass the water into the next player's hands to get to the bottle! It's very messy and fun.
