Family game nights have always been popular. In recent years I have seen lots of acquaintances hold game nights for friends. I attended one and it was different for me, playing games with complete strangers. Games Adults Play created games for college students, in order to facilitate making new friends and creating memories. Games Adults Play games would also be a great fit for adult game nights. These games are easy to play and will certainly not be dull, making them the perfect gift for any adult who enjoys a good game night. Meet Games Adults Play.
Games Adults Play
Games Adults Play™ is a new collection of adult party games geared for players 18 and up. This line offers a fun experience for adults to spice up their game night. These exciting games include Tossed Salad®, a charades-like game that will leave guests in stitches; Sip It®, the drinking game where players perform ridiculous antics, FRIEND OR FAUX®, a game of ridiculously revealing questions, and the smash hit Shit Happens®.
Friend or Faux
It’s not how many friends we have, but how well we know them! Friend or Faux inspires players to get personal, share stories, recall memories and make you laugh until it hurts. Points are earned and unexpected connections are made through five rounds of increasingly revealing questions that players answer about each other. At times risqué and often surprising, Friend or Faux is a light-hearted way to enjoy some real-life interactions with new friends, old friends, and faux friends. For 2 or more players.
- Includes 250 question cards ranging from tame to OMG.
- Easy to learn, hilarious to play.
- Perfect for your next party!
Shit Happens is the card game that brings people together through mutual shock and awe of terribly-unfortunate scenarios. Designed by the hysterical-former SNL writer, Andy Breckman, each of the shitty situation cards are ranked from 0-100 according to The Misery Index. You’re going to read some really messed up stuff on these cards, and then rank them according to their shittiness. What’s worse? Stepping in dog shit or finding half a dead hooker in your bed? Is a 3rd degree sunburn BETTER or WORSE than seeing your father naked? Is it WORSE than dropping your phone in the toilet? Each player acquires cards by correctly estimating where it lands on our Misery Index. The first player to accumulate 10 cards wins the game. For 2 or more players.
The game includes:
- 200 Shit Happens Situation Cards
- Each unfortunate situation is ranked from 1-100 (100 being the absolute shittiest) using a “Misery Index”.
- Perfect for parties – will have your guests rolling with laughter!
We Know Our Shit!
We’ve asked a panel of highly qualified professionals to carefully evaluate each situation card, and rank them on our Misery Index, which runs from 1 to 100. The panel included marriage counselors, therapists, career counselors and social workers; collectively representing over 150 years of clinical psychiatric experience.
How To Play
First, shuffle the deck, deal three cards, and place them in numerical order of their Misery Indexes. The remaining cards will be used as your draw pile (aka, your big pile of shit). Pluck a card from the top of the pile, and try to guess where it fits within the index. Is catching your parents having sex BETTER or WORSE than having a root canal? Is it WORSE than being hijacked by Somali pirates? You don’t have to guess the exact index number (which would be, like, impossible). Instead, all you have to do is guess its proper place within the index. If you guess correctly, you win the card. If not, it passes to the next player to guess. The first person to accumulate 10 cards wins!
Tossed Salad is the fast-paced game of quick thinking and acting nasty. This charades-like game is sure to prove who has the dirtiest mind and ensure hours of laughter. Players split into two teams and must get their teammates to shout out the double entendre listed on their card. This game is a useless vocabulary lesson – you’ll never use these words again (or will you?) It’s also probably going to be the reason your abs are hurting from laughing tomorrow! For 4 or more players.
- Hilarious charades-like game will have your party guests in stitches.
- It’s just plain offensive. But, hey, at least it’s recyclable. Enjoy!
