The game is simple: Each person takes turns saying a statement that starts with "Never have I ever." For example, "Never have I ever gone bungee jumping."

  1. Two Truths and a Lie: The Ultimate Icebreaker

Two Truths and a Lie is a game that can be played with any number of people. Each person takes turns saying three statements about themselves: Two of them are true, and one is a lie. The other players have to guess which statement is the lie. This game is an ultimate icebreaker and can help break down barriers and create a comfortable atmosphere for all the guests.

  1. Would You Rather: A Game of Tough Choices

Would You Rather is a game of tough choices that can create a sense of camaraderie among guests. It involves asking a series of questions that start with "Would you rather..." For example, "Would you rather have x-ray vision or the power of invisibility?" The game can spark interesting debates and can pave way to bonding over similar or wildly different preferences.

  1. Who Am I? A Game of Guessing and Clues

The game of Who Am I? involves each person taking turns to guess the name that is written on the card placed on their forehead.

This game is perfect for getting everyone involved and can be played with a wide range of topics -- celebrities, historical figures, fictional characters, etc.

  1. Solve the Mystery with a Murder Mystery Game

A murder mystery game is a perfect choice for those who want to add some suspense and intrigue to their dinner party. Participants can dress up as the characters in the story and take on roles to play out a murder mystery plot. The game can be played with themes set in different eras and locations to suit the preferences of the host.

  1. Act It Out with Charades

Charades is a classic game that is sure to bring out the competitive spirit in your guests.

  1. Hilarious Miscommunication with Telestrations

Telestrations is a game that involves drawing and miscommunication. Participants start by writing a phrase or a sentence on a pad, and then pass it on to the next player.
