Once the host of the game has all the cards, they will read what is written on those cards and make the others guess which of the three items listed are the two truths and which is the lie.
Famous Couples: Stick a label onto the back of one partygoer, then ask others a probing question about a famous couple that can be answered yes or no. the first to guest the famous couple is the winner but let the game continue until all the couples have guessed the famous couples
Newlywed Game: The Newlywed Game is a timeless classic that has the potential to make or break any partnership (kidding).
Back To Back: A more physical game is the Back-To-Back game where couple link elbows while sitting on the floor.The host shouts for couple to stand up as quickly as possible To make things more interesting, pair up girls/girls or guys/guys and see if being stronger means men have the advantage in this game.
Never Ever Have I Ever: Set up the game like musical chairs Everyone has a chair except one person who will be the starter who stands in the middle of the seated participants The starter says “Never ever have I ever…” and then says something they have never done. Anyone sitting who has done that thing must stand up and switch chairs. The person in the middle can grab a chair and the last person standing is the next person to say “Never ever have I ever…” and repeats the game. While this game technically has no winner, it makes for interesting conversation surely
Don’t forget the party favors as gifts for the party game winners. Do sure to have party music on in the background.
