Fruit Salad

Another of our most popular adults birthday party games. This is a game of interchanging chairs for a large group.

Materials needed:

Enough chairs for everyone minus one.

How to Play the Game

Everyone should be sitting on a chair facing inwards. One person should take away her chair and stand in the middle. That person will say aloud one thing to the audience, such as "Move to a new chair if you have motorbike", "Move to a new chair if you like Sushi". Everyone should move if that is true for them. Although they cannot move to a seat which is directly next to them. The middle caller, should immediately move to a new seat. Their should be one person left over and they ask a new question to the group. If the caller says "FRUIT SALAD". Everyone must move seats. Keep playing the game until everyone has a go in the middle.

Marshmallow toothpick castle: Split into teams of 2 or 3. Give each team 15 mini-marshmallows and 15 toothpicks. The team that builds the highest marshmallow structure in 10 minutes wins!

Sardines: A classic! Give one person 5 minutes to hide somewhere (specify if outside is OK) and then everyone looks for him. People hide with the person when they find him until the last person finds the group! Brilliant adult birthday party game for a large group.

Alphabet category game: Sit in a circle and pick a category like "animals" or "food." One person starts by naming something in the category that starts with A (like "avocados"), the next person has to name a B item ("bananas"), and so on. If someone can't think of one in 10 seconds, she's out! This adult birthday party game can be played with a lot of people or in pairs.

Guess the animal: Grab a marker and write an animal on as many pieces of masking tape as there are people. Put the tape on each persons forehead without them reading it. They have to walk around and ask each other yes or no questions to figure out which animal they are (like "Do I have four legs?"). This game is another game for celebrity head as above.

Pass the parcel: Wrap a gift with multiple layers of gift wrap. Then have everyone sit in a circle and pass the gift around until the music stops. Whoever has the gift then unwraps a layer. Repeat until someone unwraps the gift—the lucky person gets to keep it! Yes this is a brilliant adult birthday party game because adults tend to cheat much better than children.

Memory: Sit everyone around a table with a bunch of little objects on it. One person closes her eyes, and somebody removes one object and hides it. The eye-closer then has 3 guesses as to which object was removed. Return the item and repeat with someone else! Adult party games such as these can also be played with children.

Detective: One person leaves the room. Everyone else agrees to have something in common—all pretend to be characters on a TV show, be afraid of heights, etc. When the detective comes back, she has to guess what everyone has in common using yes or no questions. People can give the detective clues (like "I hate going up on ladders!"). This one the more clever adult birthday party games, but can also generate lots of laughs.

Who's that cat?: Blindfold one person (the guesser) and sit him at the center of the circle. Have the guesser point in a random direction. Whoever is pointed at meows like a cat, and the guesser has to figure out who it was. If he is correct, the meower becomes the new guesser. If not, the guesser points in another direction.

Don't laugh

:Put everyone in pairs. Each pair takes turns trying to make the other person laugh by saying "Ha ha ha!" in an outrageous fake voice. They go back and forth until someone actually laughs. These adult birthday party games as above can be adapted to include alcohol depending on the party guests.
