Don’t Say Yes

You’ve certainly heard of those taboo word games, but this one will be very difficult. Guests are not permitted to use the word “yes” or any variant thereof.

It’s a lot of fun to hear what the rest of the team comes up with as they call out their predictions in the hopes of nailing the correct answer!

Camera Hot Potato

Choose a phone to distribute around to the rest of the party. Set it to self-timer mode (10 seconds is ideal) and take a regular photo, not a selfie. Pass the phone around, with each individual posing for the camera while holding it up for a moment. Repeat the process until the photo is captured. Take a peek at the images at the end.

Cards Against Humanity

Isn’t everyone familiar with this one? It’s a true classic. The guidelines are laid down in a straightforward ‘fill in the blank’ fashion. Everyone is issued ten white cards, which serve as ‘fill-in-the-blank alternatives. Then one black card is drawn, which includes the blank that the participants must fill in.

After that, each player chooses one of the white cards that they believe best fits the gap and places it faces down on the table. The person who drew the black cards repeats the line aloud, filling in the blanks with the various alternatives each time, and then selects the most amusing as the round’s winner. The guy who wins the most rounds is declared the winner.
