A good party game can save a dull social event, but bogging everyone down with rules and equipment can stall the party further. These are some of the best party games that are easy to play and flexible enough to stay fun.
What Do You Meme?
What Do You Meme? is a game that could only exist in the 21st century. Each turn, a Photo Card—probably one you recognize from Facebook memes a year ago—is placed in the middle. Players then choose from their hand of Caption Cards to find the funniest caption. The basic format is familiar to anyone who’s played Cards Against Humanity or any of the many, many games that it inspired, but the unique twist of using familiar meme templates keeps it somewhat fresh. Even if it takes expansion packs just to keep up to date on the latest ones.
Funemployed gets you in the party mood by asking you to pretent you’re applying to a job you’re barely qualified for. You know, fun. Each round, there’s a job that everyone is trying to land, like Bounty Hunter or Mad Scientist. Players then have to build their resume with Qualification Cards like “Russian Accent,” or “Sexting.” How, exactly, does being good at sexting help you get a job as a bounty hunter? That’s up to you to explain. If you can sell yourself as a job candidate with the qualifications you have, you win.
