Fun Games for a Group of Adult Women

By Krystal Miller

When planning a party for adult women, have several fun party games prepared that are sure to get your guests laughing and having a great time. From a name and number icebreaker to handbag game, use your creativity and a few supplies to create memorable games for your friends. Awarding prizes to winners, such as costume jewelry, lip gloss and gift cards, will encourage game participation.

Name and Number Icebreaker

As the women arrive to the party, give each one an index card with a number written on the back, such as "1" through "20." Have her write her name on the front of the card. Pin or tape the index card, name side out, on each guest’s shirt. All the women must go around the party and introduce themselves to as many people as possible. After 15 minutes, tell the guests to flip over the index cards so only the number shows. Give each guest a sheet of paper with all the numbers on it. She must list the name beside the number of each guest she can remember. The player who has the most correct names with correct numbers wins the game.

Lightest and Heaviest Purse

Purchase or borrow a postal scale to use for this game. Have each woman sit her purse on the postal scale and record the exact amount. After each woman weighs her purse, announce its weight. Award a prize to the women with the lightest and heaviest purses.

Purse Bingo

Give the guests a blank bingo grid (5 squares by 5 squares) and have her fill in the blanks with items she has in her purse, such as mascara, lipstick, pain relievers and lotion. Have all the guests write down the same items on small slips of paper and place them in a bowl. Give each woman a bowl of bingo markers or small pieces of candy to mark their cards. Mix up the slips of paper and start calling out item names. The first player to get five items in a row, vertically, diagonally or horizontally wins the game.

Handbag Game

Tell all the women to get their handbags and sit it in their laps. Make a list in advance of items that women may carry in their purses, such as lipstick, hand sanitizer, a brush, cash, gum, mints, a receipt more than two months old, a crayon and a business card. When you call out an item, the first woman to dig in her purse and find that item wins a small prize.
