The team that answers the most questions correctly wins the game.
Espionage! is a game that lets you be a spy and try to outsmart the other team. You need an experienced host to run the game. The host will divide the players into two teams of spies and agents. Each team has a mission to complete while trying to identify the spies on the opposing team. The host will give each team puzzles, challenges, and clues to help them. “The team that completes their mission and exposes the spies will win the game.”
A Murder Mystery game is a game that makes you a detective and a suspect in a crime. You should buy or make a murder mystery kit that has a story, characters, and clues. You also need to assign each player a character from the kit. Each player should learn about their character and act like them. During the game, players will communicate and gather clues to find the killer. The player who solves the mystery or gets away with the murder wins the game.
The Newlywed Game
The Newlywed Game is a game that tests how well couples know each other. You can play it with married couples, or any pairs of close people. To play, you need to prepare some questions that ask about personal preferences, habits, opinions, or experiences. For example, “What is your partner’s favourite movie?” or “Where did you go on your first date?”
You also need to divide the couples into two teams. Each team will take turns answering the questions. The host will ask one partner from each team to leave the room, while the other partner stays and answers the questions. Then, the partners who left will come back and try to guess what their partner said. The team that gets the most matches wins the game.
Telephone Pictionary is a game that combines the classic games of Telephone and Pictionary. You may need to have paper and pens for each player. To play, you need to sit in a circle and give each player a piece of paper. Each player will write a word or a phrase on their paper, then fold it and pass it to the person on their left.
The next person will look at the word or phrase and draw a picture of it on the same paper, then fold it and pass it to the left. The next person will look at the picture and write a word or a phrase that describes it, then fold it and pass it to the left. This will continue until the paper returns to the original owner.
Then, each player will unfold their paper and reveal the word or phrase they started with, and the drawings and words that followed. The results are usually hilarious and unexpected. The game is over when everyone has seen their paper.
The Sticker Stalker Game
The Sticker Stalker Game is a game that challenges you to stick stickers on other players without them noticing. You should have a pack of stickers for each player. To play, you need to give each player a pack of stickers and tell them to hide them. The game starts when everyone enters the room.
The players have to mingle and try to stick their stickers on other players’ backs, arms, or clothes. The catch is that they have to do it secretly, without the other player or anyone else seeing them. If someone catches them, they have to take back their sticker and try again. The game ends when someone runs out of stickers or when the time is up. The player who has the most stickers on other players wins the game.
Two Truths and a Lie
Two Truths and a Lie is a game that tests how well you can lie and how well you know your friends. You may need paper and pens for each player.

Two of these statements have to be true, and one has to be a lie.
The statements can be about anything, like hobbies, dreams, secrets, or funny stories. The players then take turns reading their statements to the group. The other players have to guess which statement is the lie. The player who fools the most people or the player who guesses the most lies wins the game.
