As a kid, spending the night in with friends or family playing games and watching movies was often the highlight of many people’s childhoods. It brought individuals together, kept little ones busy for longer, and often entertained parents for a while too. Have you had one of those nights as an adult? Adults’ night in can be amazing for your overall well being, and it also can be great for rainy or stormy nights to pass the time. But what can you do? Here are some of the best games for adults night in.
For the crowds that like wordplay and making puns out of things, games like Puns of Anarchy can be enjoyable. This concept is similar to Cards Against Humanity which is quite popular. But you can actually use dry erase markers on these cards to edit and add to puns of your own, which makes the game different every time!
There are many iterations of drawing games you can create or play depending on your budget. From your own versions of charades using drawing to more NSFW concepts that you can purchase like “Draw What?”. You can also have games where the drawer is blindfolded and others tell them what to do. Limitless possibilities for this category.
A game more specific to internet generations and those that want to laugh is “What Do You Meme?” where players get caption cards and image cards to try to compete to create the funniest memes. It’s another version similar to the Cards Against Humanity concept, but more fast paced and works well for those that like memes online.
If you just want to relax and watch a movie, make picking the movie or movies of the night a game in itself! You can play roulette games, pick from a jar of choices, and more for choosing the movie of the night. And even have some fun beforehand making silly treats and goodies for snacks with the film.
Jenga was a game that was classic for many households, especially with kids that are old enough to understand how to play. But there are now versions made just for adults that can be made into drinking games and even giant forms of Jenga that make playing more interactive and unique.
Amazon, Etsy, and other retailers are increasing one specific type of party game on the market: murder and mystery solving! You can purchase kits about a made up murder or event that your company can help to solve using evidence presented in the game kit. True crime lovers will enjoy this!
Now that you have some ideas, you can plan your own night in with your friends or family. You don’t have to use any of these exact games or ideas if you don’t wish to or want to make it more unique for your company. You can do this with family members to get closer with each other, or with any friends that have the time. Making adults nights in a more frequent occurrence in your life can be pretty fun and it can benefit everybody involved in reducing stress and improving mental health.
