Fun Party Games To Liven Up Your Dinner Party

Dinner parties are fun especially when your guests are your friends. When you have invited lot of guests and want to keep the party alive and entertaining for everyone, think of having party games. You can have a few games the same night without interrupting the flow of dinner and conversation. Keep the games interesting by either awarding the winner with small gifts or making the loser do something, for example: the loser eats a cupcake or has to drink from a huge glass. Keep the materials prepared and explain the game to your guests before you begin.

  1. Guess the Celebrity:

Keep prepared stick-on tags with celebrity names written on it. Stick it to the back of your guest’s clothes. Let them move around and talk to others. They will have to make the others talk to them about the celebrity without actually naming them. The person who guesses the name on their tag is the winner.

  1. What’s under the plate:

Write odd phrases on a piece of paper and place it under the guest’s dinner plate. Only they should see the phrase and must not share with anyone else. They must slip it into their conversation and after 5 minutes if no one has pointed out then they are the winner. The phrases can be “Death is hereditary”, “Constipated people don’t give a crap”.


  1. Charades:

Charades is a classic mostly-played game at any party or get-together. Divide your guests into two groups. Each team takes turn guessing the words acted out by one member of the other team. The teams must guess the words within 2 minutes and the team with the highest points win.


  1. Repeat the phrase:

This game is for ones that are good at remembering things. Before your guests arrive, write down funny, informative or pearls of wisdom phrases. For example, “Think like a wise man but express yourself like the common people”, “When I cease to be indignant I will have begun my old age” and so on. If you are the narrator, you should read out a phrase once and each guest must repeat a single word from the phrase. The one who forgets or says the wrong word is out of the game. The game continues until there is only one person left, the winner.

  1. Thumb game:

The game starts with a person placing their thumb on the table. Others who have seen this must also place their thumb on the table. The last one to notice is the loser. This can be played during dinner or dessert and when everyone is engaged in conversations. People who put their thumb on the table must do so discreetly to keep the game interesting.
