If you’re hosting a get-together, the game night should be on your agenda. You’ll have more fun and look forward to entertaining again in the future. Even better, you can have fun by hosting some fun party games for adults without drinking.
Some people just refuse to drink, others don’t want the hassle of ensuring everyone stays sober, and many people prefer not to be drunk when they are around family, especially children.
There are many games you can play without drinking something strong, but figuring out what these are isn’t easy. That’s because often when we think about party games, we think of games we’ve played before with a drink in our hand.
So then let’s go on to check out the list of these fun party games that can be played while hosting people over.
Super Fun Party Games for Adults Without Drinking
Are you hosting a gathering of friends or planning a party for adults and looking for fun-filled activities that don’t involve something strong?
There are plenty of exciting and engaging games that can entertain your guests without the need for these beverages.
So, get ready to ignite laughter, create lasting memories, and bring out the competitive spirit as we explore a variety of entertaining party games perfect for adults who prefer a booze-free celebration!
1. Name the Movie
The rules are simple: name a movie without saying the title or any of the actors’ names. This can be done in teams or by each person in turn. The first person to get it right wins a point.
2. Would You Rather?
A classic party game that will get everyone laughing and talking, this is a great icebreaker for when people first arrive at your party.
You can ask questions like “Would you rather eat pizza every day for the rest of your life or never eat another slice again?”
Also; “Would you rather go on a date with your best friend’s ex-boyfriend or never see him again?” “Would you rather have an affair with your boss or never work again?”, and so on.
3. Guess The Supermodel
This is a fun game for groups of people, especially if you have some good-looking friends who don’t mind posing for photos. Ask your guests to bring pictures of their favorite supermodels, famous actresses, etc., from magazines and online sources.
Then give each person a piece of paper and tell them not to show it to anyone else.
Have someone pick a random picture to start with and ask each person to guess which celebrity is pictured on their paper by asking yes or no questions about them (i.e., “Is she blonde?” “Does she have brown eyes?”).
The first one who correctly guesses gets to keep both papers as their prize.
4. Add a Word
This is a very simple game and all you need to do is add one single word to the sentence that your partner gives you, and then give it back to them. It’s very easy to play, but it’s also very fun and will get you laughing at every turn.
5. Write a Letter to Your Future Self
This is another fun game that involves writing a letter to yourself in the future.
You can write about anything that you think might happen in your life, or even just about what’s happening now. Just make sure that the letter doesn’t end up being too long.
6. Find Things in Common
This game is great because it allows you to get to know your friends better than ever before. All you have to do is find something in common between all of your friends, whether it be food, movies, or music, there are so many options available.
The winner of this game will be whoever finds the most things in common with their group of friends.
7. The Sentence Game
This is a fun game where you have to create sentences with your friends. You have to be quick in this game as the time limit is 30 seconds. You can play this game in groups of 4 people.
8. Pieces of My Life
Here, each person has to share one thing from their life and the next person has to make a story based on what they shared. This is a great way to get to know each other better and also have some fun.
9. How Well Do You Know Me?
This is another great icebreaker game that helps you get to know each other better and have some fun at the same time. In this game, there are two types of questions, easy and difficult ones.
Easy questions include those which you can guess easily by looking at someone’s face whereas difficult questions include those which require thinking hard or guessing correctly.
Non-Drinking Activities with Friends
Embracing non-drinking activities with friends brings a multitude of benefits, including inclusivity, stronger connections, improved well-being, personal growth, and a safe social environment.
So, the next time you’re planning a gathering or hanging out with friends, consider the endless possibilities of fun-filled activities without the need for those. You’ll create memorable experiences, strengthen friendships, and make the most of your time together in ways that go beyond the traditional social norms with these amazing fun activities.
Many adults like to play charades because it’s a game that can be done by both children and adults alike.
You can get creative with your interpretations of the words, or stick strictly to the script. It’s also a great icebreaker because everyone has to guess what’s being acted out, so it gets people laughing right away.
The classic game of drawing clues on paper and trying to guess what they mean has been around forever. If you don’t have a dictionary handy, ask your friends to help you out with their vocabulary.
This game is all about getting rid of your inhibitions as you try not to use certain taboo words during a conversation (such as “romance” or “drunk”). It forces people out of their comfort zone and gives them a chance to be silly without worrying about making fools of themselves.
13. Human Foosball Game
Then, have someone in the middle of the table shoot ping pong balls at each team member. If you want to make things more complicated, have someone on each team try to catch the ball before it hits someone else’s side.
This is a great way to get people to play together, even if they aren’t drinking. The rules are simple: divide your guests into two teams and have them stand on either side of a table.
14. Human Knot
This game is all about teamwork, so it can be played by anyone who wants to participate. Have everyone sit on the floor in a circle with their legs crossed, like they’re making a lasso around their ankles.
The goal is for everyone to untie themselves without letting go of anyone else’s hands, but they can’t let go or cross their ankles either.
15. Hot Lava
This is another game that requires some serious hand-holding skills from all players involved.
Have everyone sit in a circle with their backs facing outwards, then start passing around an object (like a ball or bottle cap) until it reaches someone who isn’t sitting next to you already, then pass it along so that person has two objects at once.
16. Guess The Person
This is a classic game that can be played with a lot of people. You will need a large room and some chairs. In this game, one person should stand in the middle of the room and everyone else should sit on the chairs.
Then, the person who is standing should name someone in the room and everyone else has to guess who he or she is thinking about. If you guess correctly, you get to take his or her place and become the one standing in the middle of the room.
This game is very similar to Guess Who but with some minor changes. All adults who want to play this game should gather in a circle while holding hands with each other.
The first person starts by saying “Duck” and then points at another player in the circle without saying anything else (this means that this player must stand up).
After that, another player says “Duck” as well and points at someone else without saying anything else (this means that this player must also stand up). This continues until everyone has been pointed at by someone else at least once (if not twice).
Fun Non-Drinking Party Games
The key to a successful non-drinking party is to ensure there are plenty of engaging activities and
Entertainment options to keep guests entertained and enthused throughout the event. Tailor the party to your guests’ preferences and interests, and you’ll create an unforgettable experience that everyone will enjoy
Here are more party games that do not involve drinking.
18. Never Have I Ever
This is another great game for those who enjoy puzzles and riddles as well as being competitive. Each player takes turns sharing something they have never done while everyone else takes turns guessing who has done it based on their reactions and facial expressions during each person’s turn (i.e., never have I ever been arrested).
The first person to guess correctly wins a point. It’s important to note that these rules can vary depending on what type of people are playing – sometimes we play with different rules such as only being allowed two incorrect guesses before being disqualified from winning
19. Saran Wrap Ball
This is a great party game for adults without drinking. All you need is some Saran Wrap, a ball, and some duct tape. Use the duct tape to create a hole in the middle of the Saran Wrap and wrap it around your hand like a glove.
Then try to get the ball through one of your fingers. This makes for an incredibly fun time that’s sure to keep everyone laughing.
20. Cocktail Name Game
This game is another great way to get everyone involved in the fun without having them drink something strong.
Pick out some names of cocktails that you know everyone will know (like a Cosmopolitan or Manhattan) and then make up new names for them based on where they’re from or what they look like.
For example, if someone’s name was John Doe, you could say “John Doe with an Orange” or “John Doe with Ice.”
21. The Book Game
This game is a lot of fun and can be played with any number of players. You will need a book that has an illustration on every page, preferably a fairly large one. You will also need pens or crayons to mark your guesses as to what the picture is.
When someone turns to a new page, they have to guess what the next picture is going to be. If they get it right, they get points. If not, they get no points.
22. Making Crafts with Supplies You Already Own
Everyone has supplies laying around their house. Get them together and make some art. Try making jewelry or painting pictures on glass bottles.
This is a great way to have fun while spending time with friends and creating something beautiful at the same time.
23. Pass the Parcel
This classic game is often used as a kid’s birthday party activity, but it works just as well at an adult event. It’s great because it can be played with people of any age group and there’s no set number of players required before starting, just grab some music and go.
You will need a few things like wrapping paper (or old sheets/towels), scissors, and some treats. Wrap up some treats in the wrapping paper and then cut them into pieces so that each person has a piece of something wrapped up inside.
The first person says “Pass the parcel” when they pass around the parcel until someone has unwrapped their treat and shouts “Winner!”
24. Spin The Bottle
Spin the Bottle is a popular party game that typically involves a group of people sitting in a circle. The game is played by spinning a bottle, and the person to whom the bottle points when it stops spinning is chosen for a task or action, often a romantic or playful one.
