Looking for ways to get closer to your friends or family? Well, something as simple as a game night can be an effective way to get to know your loved ones and have some fun! Next time you and your friends or family have a game night, here are three games you have to try!
Anomia is a card game that tests your word-finding skills. In this game, you take turns laying down cards with a color, symbol, and word category. If at any point the color and symbol of your top card match that of another player’s top card, you will try to say a word in their category before they say a word in yours. Whoever thinks of a valid word first keeps the other player’s card, and the player with the most cards in the end wins. It may sound like an easygoing word game, but don’t be fooled! This game is exciting, quick-paced, and super competitive!
The game designers describe Anomia as “1) A problem with word finding or recall. 2) Chaos. 3) The game where common knowledge becomes uncommonly fun!” Anomia is a ton of fun and a great way to break the ice quickly with some good, friendly competition.
Two Truths and a Lie
Two Truths and a Lie is a getting-to-know-you game that doesn’t require any cards, boards, or setup of any kind! In this game, you simply take turns listing two true facts about yourself and one lie about yourself. Everyone else will then try to guess which one of the three facts is false. The game gets more exciting as the lies are harder to distinguish, so get creative as you choose the facts and lies you share! By the end of Two Truths and a Lie, you will all come out knowing each other a lot better—perfect for some friend or family bonding!
Another great party game for groups is Heads Up! This game is an app you can download on your phone, and it’s a total blast! When playing Heads Up!, a player will select a category and put the phone on their forehead facing the audience. Words within the selected category will appear, and the crowd will give their best clues to help the player guess the right word. The goal is to work together to get as many words guessed correctly within the time limit as possible!
Heads Up! is available for download on Google Play or the App Store, so you can take this game on the go wherever you are!
