Game ideas for your next house party

You are the host, so it is up to you to choose which games your guests will play. The sooner you finish, the more time you have to plan and shop. First of all, get to know your guests. If your house party is for a group of close friends who prefer to stay up until dawn with glasses to their lips, drinking games are the way to go. Otherwise, if they are teetotalers, it is better to choose some fun board games like “Taboo” or “Pictionary”, or conversation games like “Dumb Charades” or “Truth or Dare”. Either way, decide ahead of time and shop ahead for what you need.
Completion of games
The main purpose of playing at a party is to have a common source of fun, rather than for people to break into smaller groups for private conversation. It’s also a game changer, intentional pun, for guests with diverse backgrounds or those who don’t know each other very well. Whatever your reason, here are some fun drinking games and non-drinking games to help you focus. Of course, you can choose more than one.

If your guests aren’t picky about what they drink, opt for other games like “Never Have I Ever” or “Flip Cup.” Warning: do not choose drinking games that require shots if there are only Scotch lovers.
games without drinking
For a more formal house party, or one with children, board or conversational games are your best option. Choose from the most popular games like “Dumb Charades” or “Pictionary”. You can also explore lesser known options like “The Book” or “Dictionary Game”.
Up to date
Now that you’ve planned, shopped, and decorated, your real test as a host comes on the day of your party. As your guests begin to arrive, let them settle down. Don’t jump into games right away, do them at home first. Once you start the games, try to stick to your plans, but be open to improvisations if things get boring. As a host, you need to strike a balance between calling the shots and being courteous. The most important thing is to keep the conversations in between, to be perfect with the provision of food and drinks and to mingle with all the guests equally.
Have fun at the next party and don’t stress about throwing one. Have fun!
