Ideas for party games

Throwing a party is a great way to socialise with your friends and family but the secret to hosting a truly sensational get-together is all about the entertainment. Organised fun is a great way to get your guests mingling and making memories together, whether planning the perfect birthday party or wanting to party at home instead of going to the pub.

Party games have been delighting guests of all ages for years. It’s time to elevate your next gathering with these classic party game suggestions.


An oldy but goldy, charades is a timeless party classic that never fails to entertain. Its rules are simple and easy to follow. Players take turns acting out words or phrases without speaking, while their teammates try to guess the right answer within a time limit.

With the endless possibilities for creativity, charades promise hours of laughter for everyone involved. You don’t have to stick with traditional charades either. Put your acting skills to the test and take the game to a new level with imaginative charade topic ideas.


Combine all the fun of doodling and quick wit when you sit down to play Pictionary. Divide players into teams and take turns drawing clues while your teammates try to guess the corresponding word or phrase before the timer runs out.

From doodles to absolute masterpieces, Pictionary sparks friendly competition and lets you develop your drawing skills. Hours of fun are guaranteed as players race against the clock to decipher each journey and beat the other team. Nothing bonds your guests together more than teamwork!


Inject some nostalgia into your party with a game that is a mainstay of British culture. Traditional bingo is a great option – simply distribute bingo cards to each player and assign a caller to randomly select numbers for the group. Players mark the numbers off their cards as they’re called out and prizes are provided for the winners when they achieve a complete row or a blackout.

Online bingo is an even more convenient option for your party guests. Simply get your guests to download an app or log online to a bingo website.

Card games

Another crowd-pleaser is card games. Whether you prefer classics like Go Fish or lively group games such as Uno and Exploding Kittens, there is a card game to suit every taste and skill level. Whichever option you choose, card games are perfect for parties of all sizes and guarantee a good time.
