'Tis the season to get together with friends and play games...and that is one of our favorite things to do. Good old-fashioned fun! So, gather your people and get in the competitive spirit. (Not overly competitive...because no one likes playing games with THAT person...we all know someone like that...or some of us *cough cough Jill* may even have to refrain from being THAT person.) Hey, I'm working on it. :)
If you don't know what games to play, you've come to the right place! We will share with you three of our favorite games to play with groups of people and we guarantee you will have a good time.
This is the most random game ever. You will have to do things like sit on your hands for a whole round...or only speak in 3rd person...it's not even explainable, but it is so fun. You will not be bored. Seriously.
2. Catch Phrase
This has been a go-to game for us for years. Does anyone remember Catch Phrase before it became electronic? That's how you know you're a true fan of this game...(or you're just old. haha.) The best thing about this game is that you can bring it anywhere and there's no set-up. It's a great "break-the-awkward-moment" game as well. If you can't have fun playing this game, chances are you can't have fun doing anything.
3. Fish Bowl
Maybe you don't feel like going out and spending money on a game or maybe you want to play a game RIGHT NOW and you don't have either of the games we've mentioned. DO NOT FRET! This game requires nothing but pens/pencils, paper, and creative minds. Oh and a bowl. Fish Bowl is seriously one of the best games EVER. We linked you to the directions so you could read for yourselves and learn how it's played.
So call your friends or send out a Facebook event invitation and plan a game night right now! Life is too short to not have fun.
