Party Games for any Occasion: Get The List
Party games, so many people search this term to find the same old boring games. If you happen to run across this post, I’m sure you are looking for something fun for a group of people. Now, looking for a party game for kids is totally different than trying to find a party game for adults. In the list below, we will try to cover as many ideas as possible. So let’s not waste anymore time…
List of Party Games
Outdoor Party Games
Everyone likes outdoor parties and one is not complete without at least one fun outdoor party game. Over the years, people have come up with many great ideas. Below are my personal favorites.
Cornhole (also known as bean bag toss and drunken horse shoes) is one of the top outdoor party games in the past 10 years. It can be found in most households in the Midwest and has tournaments in a lot of bars, VFW’s and even local leagues. A fun party game for adults and children, this can be played by about anyone. Most people like to make or finish them as custom sets which is easy to do. A decent paint job or decals and you have a great local team or themed game.
Giant Jenga is another great outdoor party game that is just what you are thinking, a giant life sized version of Jenga! Fun for all adults though I would keep the kids away from this one for safety reasons. It can get over 5 feet tall and will tumble! There are many ways to play giant Jenga. You can play as you play the table top version or add many extras like marking blocks with dares or make into a drinking game.
Hillbilly Golf or Golf Toss is the next outdoor party game. Again, like above, there are golf balls on ropes flying around so you may want to watch the kids. Basically, there are poles with three cross bars, you have three sets of two golf balls attached by ropes that you toss trying to wrap around the crossbars. It is much funner that it sounds!
Beersbee is more of a drinking outdoor party game that is geared to people that can move quick and can throw a fisbee. This is also mostly a drinking game hence the name. Geared more towards collage and the younger crowd though I have played and enjoyed it a couple times myself.
Another newer to the scene is Big Birdie Golf or Backyard Golf. This is one of the best outdoor party games for people who like to golf. Think golfing combined with cornhole and badminton, just better! You have two scoring zones, 2 sets of three golf balls with birdie nets attached to them. You smack the “golf birdies” with real clubs and try to hit the scoring zones. It is pure fun for golfers and also make a good training aid for your yard.
When you arrange an adult party, you also plan to add some adult party games for the guests so that they might have some good time with dinner and party. There will be many people in the party, and many of them just enjoy watching the games, but few have keen interests to play and be a part of the game. Arranging games with planning is important and the time of the party games should also be considered. The games become more interesting and enjoyable when the guests don’t know each other and have not seen before. The party can be started with a simple drink for all the guests. Keep reading to know what adult party games you can include in your list.
Peg a Friend
This game can be played in every party and can be continued throughout the whole party. The plastic bags or bags for clothing can be utilized for this game. The bag should be given to a guest, and he must attach it to other guest clothes or hair. When the peg-ger has done this to a guest, he starts counting from zero to ten and all the other guests gather around to join him. If the attachment is detected and found before reaching to ten, the person will have to try next time with much more efforts. None of the guests help each other otherwise, the fun and enjoyment might be spoiled in case another case. If the person with whom that was attached, will have to attach this to the next guest and time may vary depending on the decided time. If the time is increased, the suspense also increases with more fun and enjoyment.
Who’s My Watch?
This classical game has fun and hell enjoyment for all people irrespective of their age. It needs some ingredients like few famous people, markers, and blank stickers. This is really an amazing game where people get stickers of famous people on their foreheads and are supposed to call the name placed over their foreheads. The game ends when the one person is left behind who still has to tell the name of famous person put on his forehead. It has no concept of win and loss but provides great entertainment and fun. This best fits for no-formal and personal parties. It can better be played when you have close and private friends on your party.

It needs few things like a piece of paper that contains funny sentences like I love to live in garbage etc., slips of papers and pens to jot down the sentences on papers. The rule to play this game is very simple. There are two options that might be used while playing this paper game. One is that you write a sentence on your paper and collect all the written sentences from guests. After collection, mix them up. The other way to go is that you write sentences on all the papers and mix them up. When all this is done, start playing as per the occasion needs. If it’s a dinner party and all the guests are present, make them stand in a line, put a pot in front of them and place a written sentence on paper under every plate. You need to take care that no one sees which line is being given them. The main purpose and objective of this game are entertainment and fun, and it might be played during normal conversations.

This rocking and full of a fun game are perfect when the party is on the peak with a large number of people. If the people don’t know each other, it will make it funnier relatively. This is a very simple game and just needs postcards and pens to write something over it. The host gives every guest three cards and pen to write different sentences.
