Adult entertainment. Stupid party games. Got any good ones?128

Party Help. Seriously. I'm sure some of you hip brainiacs can suggest some really cool party games for adults. (no pinatas, electric cucumbers, funnels or kissing games -k?)

Something clever (what would Dorothy Parker or a really cool NEw Yorker do?) interesting, mysterious or weird for a (cocktail) party of say 15-20 victims. A gag to shock and awe maybe.

Got the place all gussied up for family Christmas so figured I'd invite the riff raff over beforehand to party

Thanks.

Oh, I've already got a game for the Republicans where I force them to say one critical thing about their party while staring at the 1st A. Endless fun!

  1. Divide guests into two teams
  2. Every guest writes the names of 5 "celebrities" (actors, authors, politicians, dead poets, philosophers, real or imagined, etc.) on small slips of paper. Fold them in half and throw them all in a bowl.
  3. A guest starts by picking a name from the bowl, and without saying the name, tries to give enough clues so his teammates can guess who it is. For instance, I once drew Alan Ladd. My clue was "Shane! Come back! Shane!" (They got it--there were a lot of movie buffs there)
  4. If the team guesses right, the name is thrown away and the same person does another. Repeat until one minute has expired.
  5. Someone on the other team now goes. Then the next person on the first team, and so on.
  6. Repeat until all names are drawn.


If you have reasonably literate or culturally aware guests, this is usually a lot of fun.
This sounds like fun...rwbadley

the best party games incorporate drinking into it somehow.

Try playing this game and add the stipulation that if the team misses the clue, they have to 'drink'. Last team standing wins. heh heh. ;-)

Make slips like "touchdown", "field goal", "3rd down conversion", "punt", "offensive penalty", etc. Cover more "situations" than there are party guests, but let everyone buy and draw ONE slip for $0.25. When that situation happens, you win the pot. Keeps the game moving and you win or lose a couple $$$. Have change handy.

We used to have great Monday Night Football parties with this.

"Decipher the liberal spew"

It's likely more of shock, awe and disgust as it's the only game that nobody can figure out! It should be called, "spin a legendary yarn"!

Most everybody looks like, has a personality like, or mannerisms like somebody famous. Write down the names of the associated famous people on a piece of paper and pin it on the back of the guest. Then, while mingling, the others (who can see the name) give hints to the person. When you guess your name you can take it off.

I was Gilligan. My wife was.... Morgan Fairchild, yeah, thats the ticket.

Yes it sounds hokey, but I have found that some of the hokiest party games are the most fun.
Ahh, this sounds devilish. Great suggestions all. Thanks128

This sounds great but could lead to trouble "I look like WHAT?!" Better to do this towards the end of the night, eh? After the quarters (classic!) game.

Made me think of how I have everyone at work pegged as Sesame St. characters, which often makes getting through meetings w/o laughing a severe challenge.

Party on dudes....
That sounds like a hoot!PaulCL

Personally, I would be Robert Redford. My wife, "Truly Scrumptious" from "chitty chitty bang bang". We've both been accused of the resemblences. Ok...Ok....I look like RR's ugly little brother.
