I shared that on NYE we played a series of games every hour and I had so many people message me asking if I could share the games we played. So figured I’d round them up here plus some others we played over the weekend!
Telestrations (after dark if you are wanting the more “adult” version)
Game of Things – such a fun game but would recommend playing with at least 5 people!
Trivia – We just did this one on our own – no purchase of any game required. One person wrote down random questions ahead of time ie. What was the most watched Netflix series of 2022? Who was TIME magazine person of the year? etc. And then we split into groups of two and answered as many as we could within a set time. Afterwards, we just all googled the answers.
Quarters – So I’m calling this game “quarters” because it’s what we called it. I know there are different ways to play it but I’m just going to share how we played! Anyway, you split everyone up into two teams (so we had 3 people on each team) and each team stands on one side of a table. One team has the quarter and starts passing it underneath the table back and forth to each other. Then when the other team says “stop”, you all lift your hands above the table in a fist form, palms facing the other team. Obviously one person will have the quarter in their hand at this point and the other two team members are holding nothing in their fists. Then you count down to 3 and everyone flips their palms over and slams their hands flat on the table. Then the other team has to guess what hand the quarter is under. The trick here is to flip your palms over/open close to the table so there is less room for the quarter to move/make a noise. The other team can guess right away which hand it’s under or they can eliminate other players/hands to narrow it down. You can keep score, or losing team can drink, etc. Our version of drinking if we lost was taking a sip of wine haha.
“The Knee Game” – Okay this game is equally ridiculous and hilarious. The objective of the game is to be able to guess whose knees are whose LOL. We split into two groups (girls and guys) and at first all the girls sat down on the couch and rolled their pants up past their knees. Then, each guy was blindfolded and had to feel each person’s knees and guess who was who. Then, we reversed roles and the girls guessed the guys knees HAHA. Everyone got their partner’s knees right but otherwise people mixed up who was who. We were literally crying we were laughing so hard. Such a weird game but so funny haha.
Bite the Bag – Another game *almost* as ridiculous as the knee game lol. All you need for this game is a paper grocery bag. The goal here is to pick up the bag off the floor, only using your mouth aka both feet can be planted on the floor but you cannot use your hands to balance yourself. Everyone takes a turn trying to pick up the bag with their mouth and once everyone has had their turn, you cut down the paper bag (an inch or two) so the bag is shorter and more difficult to reach/pick up. Probably goes without saying but if you can’t pick up/reach the bag with your mouth or you reach it but fall picking it up then you’re out! Last person to be able to pick up the bag when it’s the shortest wins!
