Not all party games are for children. Sometimes adults want to feel young again. When planning a party for adults, you can organize some games to keep your guests entertained. Games will keep your guests involved in the party and give them a chance to win prizes to take home as a memento of the party. Even if you only have a small space to play games in, get creative and use your imagination to create party games everyone will enjoy.

Music Games

Create a game of name-that-tune for your party guests. Give each player a sheet of paper and a pen. Play random songs and have players write down the name of the song. Award one point for each correct answer and a bonus point if the players write down who sings the song. The player with the highest number of points wins the game. Another idea is to divide people up into teams. Play a song for each team, one at a time. Each team earns one point for the song title and one point for the artist name. The team who scores the most points wins the game.

Clothespin Games

Organize a few games for adults using clothespins. Place 20 clothespins on a hanger and hand it to one player. He must hold the hanger with one hand and remove the clothespins with the other hand. The player who removes the most clothespins wins the game. If he drops a clothespin at any time, the count stops. Another idea is to place a jar on the ground. Players must stand over the jar and place a clothespin between their knees. They must try to drop the clothespin in the jar. The player who makes the most clothespins in the jar in two minutes wins the game.

Guessing Games

Play a game of charades to keep party guests entertained. Divide the adults into two teams and select a category, such as movies or celebrities. Players must act out a movie or celebrity and their team must guess it correctly in one minute. The team who answers the most correctly wins the game. You can also play a guessing game by writing down the names of animals on index cards. Tape a card to the back of each adult’s shirt. Some animal examples include snake, armadillo, macaw and hamster. The players must ask yes or no questions to other guests about their animal. The first player to guess his animal wins the game.

Funny Games

Have each player select a partner and give each team an apple. The players must place the apple between their foreheads. Call out commands like “take two steps to the right” and “squat down.” If one team drops the apple, they are out of the game. The last couple remaining wins the game. Another idea is to have a relay race. Divide the players into two teams and give the first player in each team line an orange or inflated balloon. When you say “Race,” the players must pass the orange or balloon all the way down their team line using only their necks and chins. If they drop it, they must start over. The first team to get the orange or balloon all the way down their team line wins the game.
