In the fall, we want to stay at home more and more., and the most common entertainment is home parties and get-togethers with friends. We have collected ten not-known games for the company (alcoholic and not only), most of which only require paper and a pen. We are sure they will make the cold autumn days more fun.
You will need: Paper and pen, timer
How to play: You can buy the Boom board game, or you can create cards for it yourself. Before the start of the game, each of the players writes on several paper cards the names of famous people (it is better to choose celebrities who are well known to everyone present - this is easier and more fun). Then the players are divided into teams; the team is given a minute for one move. In the first round, players need to take cards from the deck and explain to other team members who they are talking about, without mentioning the name of the celebrity - they get as many points as they can guess the names. When all the cards are out, they are folded back into the deck and the second round begins: now the names of the celebrities need to be explained in pantomime. In the third round, the names must be explained in one word. The advantage of the game is that all players are involved in it: even if it is not your turn now, you need to listen carefully, because the cards are repeated.
You will need: Deck of cards or paper and pen
How to play: At the beginning of the game, you need to distribute the roles and choose who will be the killer - for this you can use several cards according to the number of players (the one who draws the ace of spades becomes the killer) or write the roles on pieces of paper. Players draw a card or piece of paper without showing it to others and sit in a circle. The killer's task is to discreetly wink at other players: the one to whom he winks, "dies." The task of the rest of the players is to catch the killer: at any moment of the game, they can blame someone. If the name of the murderer is called correctly, he lost; if the player makes a mistake and calls the name of the innocent, he also "dies". If the assassin manages to get everyone but the last player out of the game, he wins (and this is much more difficult than it sounds).
You will need: Alcohol
How to play: Not the easiest, but very funny alcoholic game, different versions of the rules of which are detailed in Wikipedia. Players stand in a circle and take turns counting to 21. According to one of the most common variations of the rules, players can count one, two or three numbers. If the player calls one number, the game continues in the same direction as before (for example, the person to the right of the player counts further). If he calls two numbers, the game changes direction (in our example, the next number is called by the person to the left of the player). If the person calls three numbers, the game continues in the same direction as before, but the player next to the counting player skips a turn.
The player who must call the number 21 loses, and as a punishment must also drink - and also come up with one more additional rule (for example, all numbers divisible by three must be pronounced in English, or instead of the number 5, one of the players must be winked). Anyone who makes mistakes, calls the wrong numbers, gets confused by the new rules and too slow, should also drink as a punishment. The game can be continued until each number has its own rule - or until you get tired of drinking.
Insert the phrase
You will need: Paper and pen
How to play: A game to play throughout the evening. Each of the guests, when he comes to you, needs to distribute a piece of paper with pre-prepared phrases (for example, "I'm thinking of running a marathon", "Game of Thrones" taught me a lot "," What do you think of the latest Yeezy collection? ").The task of the players is not to show their proposal to others, to quietly insert it into a normal conversation. After the player utters his phrase, he must wait five minutes so that the others have the opportunity to calculate it. If during this time a person is not caught, then he receives a prize. This game also has an alcohol version: in this case, if someone was able to successfully insert their phrase into a conversation, everyone else drinks. If someone catches you using a pre-prepared phrase, you will have to drink already.
You will need: Alcoholic jelly or shots
How to play: Players sit in a circle at a table lined with glasses of alcohol (calculate your strength when choosing a drink!) Or glasses of alcoholic jelly. At the start of the game, everyone looks down, and then, on the count of three, they look up and look at the other player. If you are looking at someone who is not looking at you, you are in luck; if your eyes meet, you need to shout: "Medusa!" - and have a shot. And so on until the alcohol ends - or just gets bored.
Sing song ping pong
You will need: A device that plays music (but not required)
How to play: The game that appeared and became popular thanks to the movie "Pitch Perfect". It can be played both in teams and singly. In order to achieve success in the game, you need to be able to improvise well - but to be able to sing professionally is not at all necessary, the main thing is not to be shy. The player or team making the first move begins to sing any song (you can just play the first song in the player). The rest of the participants can at any time interrupt the one who is currently singing and sing another song, starting with the word that occurs first in the text, and so on. The round continues until one of the players manages to sing his song to the end - in this case, he gets a point. The game can be continued until someone scores 5-10 points, depending on how long it takes you for one round. If desired, the game can be complicated and played in English.
You will need: Paper and pen, alcohol (optional)
How to play: This is an alcoholic game, but you don't have to drink at all - instead, you can impose a different fine. Before the start of the game, each participant receives a piece of paper on which he must write some task. All pieces of paper are folded into a hat or box; the players take turns drawing one at a time, without showing it to the others. After that, the players begin to deal with their tasks in turn. Everyone has a choice: you can complete the task, you can exchange with someone who has not yet completed their own (while discussing which task is impossible), or refuse to complete the task and drink - or get another set penalty. If you have your own task, you cannot exchange it with others - you have to do it or have a drink.
Two truths and one lie
You will need: Paper and pen (optional)
How to play: Each of the players needs to come up with three sentences about themselves - two true and one false. The players take turns reading out statements about themselves (in any order), and the rest need to determine where the truth is and where is the lie. After the others have voted, the player tells how it really is. The success of the game largely depends on how creative the participants are - but it helps well in an unfamiliar company.
You will need: Hats, paper crowns, or party caps
How to play: The good thing about this game is that it can be played discreetly throughout the evening - especially if you are having dinner at the same table. It got its name from the popular Christmas crackers in the UK and some other countries, which have a small prize and a paper crown. Players wear hats or any other headgear, and the host announces that all players must take them off after he takes off his.The presenter should take off his hat not immediately, but after a while, when the players are distracted and, possibly, forget that the game is still going on. The one who takes off his hat last loses.
birds of a feather flock together
You will need: Paper and pen for each player
How to play: Before starting the game, the facilitator must come up with ten categories (for example, Silent Movie Actresses, Alcoholic Cocktails, 80s Musicians). It is better to play with a large company, and the players should be divided into two teams. The facilitator announces each of the categories in turn, and the participants must write the first three words or names that come into their minds that match it. Trying to be the most original is not worth it: points are awarded for words written by several people from the team. For example, a word written by three team members can be awarded three points, a word written by four team members - four points, and so on. The team with the most points wins.
