How Games Are A Part Of Human Culture


Go to top.

Humans are known for being social creatures, and games aid us in creating relationships, breaking the ice, and otherwise enjoying our leisure time. The types of games can vary from outdoor, indoor, (also known as parlor), drinking, or sport oriented. We will focus on the contemporary adult party game which is usually played indoors by adults in large social gatherings.

The ultimate purpose of a party game is to entertain. Most party games will contain similar elements for a successful experience. For instance, gameplay familiarity is a big factor for an effective party game. The template of a board game will be familiar to most adults because they can recognize a similar board game template from their childhood. Card games as well are ingrained in our youth; such as Go Fish. There are, however, some unique games with different formats. Twister, for example, is a classic twist on a game enjoyed by children and adults alike that do not have the template of a board or card game. This also makes the learning curve much faster and gets the players to play the game much quicker.

Social interaction is a large component of a successful adult party game. Most games will be team oriented for this reason, though the competitive level is usually low. Some games use disparity to their advantage, purposefully pitting people against one another. A classic example would be teams of men versus women.

The adult party game usually defers from the rest in a myriad of ways. They usually encourage drinking and profanity. Some games rely on social taboos and are sexually explicit in nature.

Why Some Games Are Only For Adults

Choosing the right game will depend on many factors: number of players, comfort level, and interest. Most party hosts will present a few party game options to best suit the preferences of their guests. However, a well picked party game can have excellent benefits, and in some cases, revive a dying party.

Games can help create bonds and friendships. In the case of raunchier, sex oriented games, they may possibly suggest romantic connections between players. Games that pose hypothetical questions help players learn about each other on an intimate level, however, this feature can be viewed as a consequence as well.

Given the social aspect of these games, most are easy to learn, inclusive of a large number of people, and do not eliminate players. This prevents the "losing" player from sitting out uninterested while the "victors" play on. For a grueling example of this, play Monopoly and go bankrupt and wait while the world turns hours later as you don't play. Lastly, these games mentioned are all humorous in nature, either by design or by the players contribution. An absolute must for any party.

What's not to love? Why wouldn't you break out an adult party game at your next social gathering? Well, there is ingrained in our human DNA an element of competition. Perhaps insidiously dormant until tempers flare and alcohol consumption rises, and it can derail an innocuous game. As discussed earlier, perhaps you get to know your fellow players too well, and some undesirable truths are voiced. This is usually when the game is ended and guests are encouraged to leave before any more damage is done.

On another note, a popular game consisting of a deck of cards will be familiar to you after a few plays, and the game becomes stale and predictable until you purchase a booster pack. Some adult party games are, well, adult, and not appropriate for children or teenagers. Some games can be downright offensive. Cards Against Humanity is a prime example of an offensive adult party game.

A Brief History of Party Games


Go to top.

The adult party game takes its origins from the parlor game. They rose to popularity in the mid-19th century, and they were called parlor games due to the fact that most of them took place in the parlor room. The middle and upper-class citizens of the United Kingdom and the United States had more free time off work to participate in such leisure activities. They are the precursor the modern board game, and in some occasions, such as Balderdash, they are virtually unchanged from their ancestors. Their popularity waned with the rise of the home radio and television set, however, they are transformed today into the modern adult party game.

Today they exist and thrive with or without advancements in media and technology. The beauty of adult party games is that they are quite simple, require few materials, and rely upon the creativity of the players. A mediocre party game can be enlivened by enthusiastic players, and conversely, a classic game can be dampened by party poopers.

With the advent of new technology, some wonder if the board game, a classic staple of adult party games, will be obsolete. Most will disagree, as board games can be integrated with video games, a prime example being the successful Mario Party series.


#10.The Voting Game - The Adult Party Game About Your Friends


Surprisingly great game. This game is very simple. It consists of 2 decks. The voting deck and the statement. Everyone gets assigned a number and then everyone is given number cards of everyone in the game except there own. The statement card is drawn and everyone anonymously places the number of who they think most resembles the card. Then whoever is voted on gets one guess at who voted for them. Amazingly simple and fun.

#9.Nasty THINGS… Game


In this hilariously nasty game, you read a topic card and then write down your response. It can be anything that comes to mind, there's no right or wrong answer (it's not a math test, people)! Then all the responses are read aloud and you have to figure out who said what! You won't believe the shocking THINGS... the people you know will come up with! For groups of immoral players 18+.

#8.Disturbed Friends - This game should be banned


What sets this apart from Cards Against Humanity and other insensitive, offensive, downright despicable card games is that instead of picking one combination of cards that is the best/worst/funniest/most outrageous, all of the cards have three awesome/horrible options on them. You pick one and your "friends" have to decide which option they think you would prefer. They're all terrible, so no pushing out! Anyone who guesses correctly gets a "#Winning" card, with an equally hilarious/disgusting illustration on it. Play it with your closest friends for a good time or with your coworkers for a super awkward Monday.

#5.Mobscenity the Totally Bleeped Up Party Game


The most outrageous game you will ever play - if you play it with the right people. Every round, the current master plays two cards with innocent words (like donkey, clam, crack, punch, chocolate, banana, beaver, cream, spank, blood, swallow, angry, milk, spread, fist, etc.) from their hand and creates a phrase, like "The Angry Beaver" or "The Thrashing Dragon." The other players then write a definition of the phrase and use it in a sentence. The master picks their favorite and the winning player gets a point.

#4.Over The Line Party Game- A Combinaton Of Charades & Pictionary With Over The Line Words


The game and rules should be familiar. It is a spin-off of the classic acting or drawing game, the only difference is the words go extremely OVER THE LINE. Split up into two teams. One person from the team will select a card with an OVER THE LINE word or phrase. The other members of the team will guess the word by either acting or be drawing the OVER THE LINE word or phrase on the card without speaking. The team has 90 seconds to guess as many cards until the time runs out. The team that correctly guesses 20 cards first wins!

#1.Cards Against Humanity


This game has got to be the funniest game I've played in awhile... Played it with friends at a BBQ and it was a huge hit... The game is played with fairly simple instructions, each round one player picks a black card and shares it with the other players, the other players each get (3) cards from the white deck and answer with their funniest card... the funniest add on to the black card wins that round... WOULD DEFINETLY not recommend playing around children, though, the cards are funny, however not intended for little ones... I have attached some examples in my photos below!
