Pick your poison party game
A commercial and competitive version of “Would you rather…?” with family edition and NSFW edition for adults only. A strategy game with a lot of psychology in which players must choose between two bad options —two poisons— and the winner is the one who guesses the option picked by the majority. Very good!

Party games for adults #3 - Household games

You can also come up with some super fun party games using items you already have at home.

Someone might say that they are not party games but we assure you that if you play them with a group of people who want to have fun, these games automatically become party games.

For example, the game “Guess what it is by its shape and texture” – the game of the senses that tests the sense of touch – can be a familiar and even educational game for children if basic household objects are used, but it can also be a party game if less conventional objects are used instead of basic objects… and that’s where we leave it.

The same could be said of the game “Guess what it smells like“, in which we won’t make a child smell the same things on a family game afternoon as a friend who has already had three beers.

Guess what it is by its taste” can be a lot of fun, challenging and hooligan by adapting the rules of the game and mixing two foods to guess what they are. A game that can go from being a family game to a hilarious party game for adults only depending on who is playing and how imaginative they are.

Try it!
