Bring plenty of fun, laughs, and healthy competition to your next girls gathering with these girls’ night party games, and enjoy a night you’ll all remember for a very long time!
Girls’ Night Party Games
1. Who Am I?
Who Am I is a simple game requiring only a couple of items but guaranteeing a night of fun.
Write the name of a celebrity, pop culture character, or person you know in real life on a piece of paper and stick it on the forehead of the person sitting to your right.
The person will then ask questions to guess who is on their forehead. You can only ask yes or no questions, and you can keep asking until you get a no.
At that point, the person next to you starts asking their questions, and it goes around the group until everybody has guessed. The quickest person to guess who is on their forehead wins!
For a ready-made version of the game, try this “Who Am I and What Am I Doing?” game (available on Amazon).
2. CharadesCheck Price on Amazon
Charades is a games night classic! Start by splitting into two or three teams, depending on the size of the group.
You can either buy a ready-made version of the game (pictured above) or DIY your own, as described below.
Every group member should write the name of an item, person, or activity and put it in a bowl.
Each person then picks up a piece of paper and acts out what’s written on it without speaking. This game will have you in stitches trying to guess what your fellow partygoers are acting out!
Truth or dare is the perfect party game for a girls’ night with your best friends.
Truth or dare involves choosing whether you want to answer a question entirely truthfully or submit to a fun dare. Both options can yield exciting results!
To get started, take a look at my list of over 100 truth-or-dare questions.
4. JengaCheck Price on Amazon
Jenga can be played using an official set of blocks or a homemade set. This nerve-wracking game involves attempting to pull blocks from a tower without causing the whole tower to fall.
The more blocks are removed, the harder it becomes, making for a nail-biting final few blocks.
5. TwisterCheck Price on Amazon
Get tied up in knocks with a game of Twister! This mat-based game involves you and the rest of the group getting yourselves into all sorts of wacky positions.
Spin the wheel, and place, twist, and stretch your arms and legs to certain colors on the mat. You can expect a lot of laughs and some unlucky partygoers taking a tumble.
6. Scavenger Hunt
A scavenger hunt involves items being placed in hidden spots around the house. The rules of the game are simple: the person who finds the most items is the winner!
7. Name that Song
This game is a great one for music fans. Start by splitting into two or more teams and appoint a quiz host.
The game’s master will start to play a song, and the first team to shout out the song’s title and artist will win a point. The winning team are the ones who have the most points at the end of the game.
The game’s master could hum the song’s tune for an extra challenge instead of playing it aloud.
8. Murder Mystery GameCheck Price on Amazon
A great way to throw a unique party with a twist is to have the party centered around a murder mystery game. Each guest comes in character, dressed up as the role they’re playing.
Guests will then typically act out a script and, based on this and context clues, guess which character is the murderer. Murder mystery games are available to buy, or you can create your own!
This quirky party game requires no equipment but provides hours of fun. The game’s master selects a category such as ‘States in the USA’ or ‘episodes of Friends.’
The players then take turns to list items from that category until a player can’t name any more. At this point, they’re out of the game. The winner is the last player still able to name items within the category.
If you like this game, check out this ready-made Scattergories game.
This cheeky game asks you to choose between two highly desirable or undesirable situations against one another and asks which you’d rather do and why.
Listening to your friends struggle to choose between two outrageous scenarios provides hours of entertainment.
If you need some ideas, our list of 100+ “would you rather?” questions should give you plenty to ponder at your girls’ night.
Playing two truths and a lie is a great way to get to know new people quickly and even find out new things about long-time friends.
The game involves telling two truths and a lie about yourself, and the other guests have to distinguish the true statements from the lies.
To get started, check out my list of over 200 lie ideas for the two truths and a lie game.
12. Association Game
The association game is an easy game to break the ice that requires zero equipment. The first player starts with one word and then says the first associated word that pops into their head.
The person sitting to their right says the first word associated with the original word that they can think of.
Go around the circle, with the first person to stall or run out of associated words being ‘out’ of the game. The winner is the last player standing.
13. Bowl of Questions
This game allows guests to get to know one another and provides thought-provoking conversation starters.
At the start of the night, every guest writes an icebreaker question on paper and puts it into a bowl. Each guest then pulls out one of the questions from the bowl and answers it honestly.
14. What Do You Meme?Check Price on Amazon
What Do You Meme is a hilarious card game that asks players to create their own memes by pairing a caption card with a photo card.
Test your friends’ creativity and compete for laughs in this fun party game.
15. Go Fish
Go Fish is played with a traditional 52-card pack and is an easy-to-follow card game that provides hours of entertainment.
Players ‘go fishing’ for particular ranks of cards, and the aim of the game is to finish with the most books!
Spoons is an action-packed card game involving spoons that can be played by up to 13 people.
Players take turns trying to collect four-of-a-kind cards, and once one player manages this, everyone tries to grab a spoon.
If you’re the player without a spoon – there should be one fewer spoons than players – you get assigned a letter. The last player to spell out “spoons” wins.
17. CluedoCheck Price on Amazon
Whodunnit? This iconic board game asks whether it was Colonel Mustard in the conservatory with a revolver or Miss Scarlett in the dining room with a candlestick, providing hours of fun while you unravel a murder mystery.
18. MonopolyCheck Price on Amazon
Monopoly is a board game that promises to bring out the competitive side of you and your friends!
In this game of economics, players roll two dice to move around the board, buying, trading, and developing properties. The goal is to be the last player standing who has money.
19. PictionaryCheck Price on Amazon
Pictionary guarantees a night of giggles whilst you split into two teams and try and guess what your fellow teammates are drawing.
The aim of the game is for your team to guess the most answers correctly.
20. ArticulateCheck Price on Amazon
Articulate is one of my favorite games. It’s an entertaining board game that requires players to split into teams and describe objects, people, places and more, without using specific keywords. The team which guesses the most answers correctly wins.
For Small Groups
21. Blindfolded Makeovers
Blindfolded makeovers are perfect for small groups to play – but they’re more suitable for a night in than a night that will end in a nightclub!
To play this game, you’ll need a make-up set and something to cover your and your bestie’s eyes with. You’ll then perform makeovers on one another – completely blindfolded!
You could make the night even more fun by doing a photoshoot of your makeup looks once they’re finished.
22. Heads Up
Heads Up is the perfect app for parties and small gatherings. One player holds the phone screen up to their head whilst the screen displays a word.
The other players in the team describe the word and provide clues to the player until they correctly guess the word.
23. The Cereal Box Game
If you’re looking for a game to test your flexibility and have tons of fun at the same time, the cereal box game is what you’re looking for!
Grab an empty cereal box and cut off the flaps. Players then take turns picking up the cereal box off the floor with their mouths.
Every time all players have picked up the box, a further strip is cut off the box. The winner will be the last player able to pick up the box using only their mouth.
24. ScrabbleCheck Price on Amazon
Scrabble is the ideal game for when you only have two to four players. In Scrabble, you can test your brainpower by putting together letter tiles to create words. The person who can make the longest and most elaborate words wins!
For Large Groups
25. Pub Quiz
A pub quiz is a great way to have an evening of fun and test your general knowledge. The quizmaster should first split the group into teams.
Then, posit questions based on general knowledge and pop culture. The team who answer the most questions correctly will be crowned the winners!
Sardines is a fun take on hide and seek, perfect for bigger groups. One person hides, and the rest of the group searches for the hidden person – with a twist!
Once you’ve found where they’re hiding, you have to hide with them until the group is packed in like ‘sardines’. The last person to find the group loses the game.
A dance-off is a great way to have fun whilst showing off your best moves.
One person is selected as the judge, then the rest of the party splits into two and throw their best shapes until the judge picks a winning group.
28. At Home DiscoCheck Price on Amazon
If you’re not heading to the nightclub, bring the nightclub to you.
Host an at-home disco by putting on your favorite songs, lighting up a disco ball, and dancing the night away.
29. Most Likely to
This revealing game will show you what your friends think of you! Players come up with a scenario of ‘most likely to’, for example, the player most likely to become a politician. The person who most people vote the ‘most likely to’ has to take a drink.
To get started, see my list of over 300 ‘most likely to’ questions.
30. Keep a Straight Face
This hilarious game tests your ability to keep a straight face when faced with hilarious comments. Players write their most hysterical jokes or outrageous statements on pieces of paper which are then mixed up and put into a bowl.
Players must pick out the statements one by one and read them aloud while trying to keep a straight face.
Anybody who laughs has to take a drink, and collapsing into a fit of giggles will cost you your entire drink!
31. Never Have I Ever
Never Have I Ever is a classic drinking game that allows you to get to know new people and learn more about your closest friends.
Going around the group, each player says ‘never have I ever’ followed by an experience or scenario.
These can range from straightforward ‘never have I ever dyed my hair’ to ‘never have I ever been skydiving.’ If a player has taken part in the listed activity, they must drink.
If you’re stuck for ideas, check out my list of over 200 ‘never have i ever’ statements/questions.
This simple but entertaining game requires minimal equipment but guarantees lots of fun. The players gather around a table and sit with their heads bowed so they can’t see the other players.
One player will count down from 3 to 1, at which point all players must look up and stare directly at another player. If two players are looking at one another, they must shout ‘Medusa!’ and take a sip from their drinks.
33. Thumbs Down
This game is easy to play with small or large groups and will test your powers of observation.
One player is the designated ‘thumb master,’ and at any point in the night, they can set their thumb down on the edge of the table until somebody notices.
As soon as the other players notice the thumb on the table, they must do the same with their thumb. The last player to do so has to drink!
34. Prosecco PongCheck Price on Amazon
Prosecco Pong is a twist on beer pong, with this popular sparkling drink as the star of the show. Each player takes turns throwing a ping pong ball, aiming to get it in their opponent’s cup, which is filled with prosecco.
If the ball lands in their cup, the player must drink the entire contents of the cup. The person who makes their opponent drink the most drinks and has their own leftover is crowned the winner.
