The Best Adult Party Games

If you’re like me and you prefer a fun, live get-together, then you’re in real need of some overwhelming and funny adult party games. A good adult party game is one that can let folks loosen up, talk to each other, laugh with each other, and dissolve the barriers that make them feel uncomfortable. If you’re ever giving a get-together, here are the best grownup games to have on hand for any reason.

Draw What?!

If you like R-rated games, and have the attitude of the cruder, the better, this one’s for you. With this ridiculous game, there’s really no way to go wrong. The board game has more than 360 words and phrases, which you then have to draw on the white board. If your teammates can tell what you’re drawing, you can all move ahead along the colored squares.

If you’ve got a group of buddies that don’t mind raunchy drawings and cursing, this game is the one.

Cards Against Humanity

One can’t make a list like this and not have the leader of all adult party games. Cards Against Humanity is an adult-themed, offensive likeness on the card game Apples to Apples. Once you get the hang of it, it’s very easy, and gets so many laughs: Players take turns reading off black cards, which say things like, “Lifetime Presents _____, the story of ____.” The person with the funniest or most accurate phrase wins.


Imagine combining Oregon Trail with Monopoly, wilderness version, and you’ve got the cult-favorite Catan. Unlike other strategy games, new players can pick up the game very fast, letting everyone jump right in and get competitive. Your goal is to settle the island of Catan before your fellow players get resources along the way to expand your development.
