Fun games are made not only for little kids and teens. They are also perfect for grownups, too. Have you been wondering how to make your camping moments a memorable activity in your life?
There is only one way to spice up your camping experiences and that is through playing games. I have collected some of the best camping games for adults that you will surely love. Let us check them one by one. Then, try them with your friends or adult family members to see how fun they are to play.
The Best Games of All Time
#1. Two Truths and a Lie
The first game suggestion is a kind of word game. Here, all of the participants will be seated in a circular form. Each one will tell 3 things about him. The rest should determine which one is a lie. What makes this game so cool is that you start to discover outrageous things and personal facts about your friends.
To make your friends pick the wrong answer, you should make all truths crazier compared with the lie. This is how you trick them and lead them to confusion.
#2. Horse Stone Game
Originally, this game was dubbed as “Quoits” during the Ancient Rome period. In this game, there is a soldier who places an arrow box right at the central part of the ground. Then, he will throw an arrow in this box. To simplify the process, you can provide some stones of equal sizes and a stick.
Place the bucket in a certain spot as you all agreed. Make sure that it is a bit distant to everyone especially those who are very familiar with this game. The scoring is done by counting the total number of stones that are thrown into the box. The last person who will be able to shoot the stones shall be punished. For example, he can do press-ups or drink vodka. If you have a brighter idea for the consequences, then it will lift the mood of the game.
To get started, one of the players will think of a unique phrase and whisper it to the next player in line. The message will be passed on from one person to another next to him until reaching the last person. The last person will be the one to shout out the message he received.
This game is about comparing the original message sent to the first player with the last one. In some situations, two teams are competing and both will get the same magic word. The team with the fastest and most accurate delivery of message wins.
#4. Make Me Laugh
Another game that can be filled with laughter is called “Make Me Laugh”. Here, the simple rule is to make others laugh but control yourself not to laugh. Since it can be quite hard to define the standards of a laugh, you can make some specific rules. For example, showing up teeth means that you have laughed out already.
In this game, there will be a host who will choose a category. It can be a car company, a certain brand name, or words starting with “a”. The rest of the players will be given a pen and a piece of paper. The host will set a timer for 60 seconds to 2 minutes. The campers should be able to note down maximum items under such categories.
After the given period, the host will choose a camper to read his list aloud. Take note that the rest of the campers should listen and be attentive. They have to cross out the items that are the same as the reader.
Every participant can read his list aloud. The goal of this game is to see who has the most unique items which are equivalent to one point. Then, that person is the winner.
#6. The ABC Game
Altogether, you have to clap in unison following a steady and slow beat. Next, the first player will start the game by calling out a popular name. He or she can be deceased or still living at present. And moving clockwise, the next player should name a new actor or actress. But this time, his or her first name should be starting with the previous celebrity named.
In an advanced version, all players should be able to comply with the category given. For example, all celebrity names must be limited to musicians or baseball players.
#7. The Song
It does not sound too noisy as you imagine. What you need to do in this game is to decide on a theme. Taking in turn around, you should come up with a band or a song that carries the theme of the word. The one who fails to think loses the round.
#8. Who Am I?
Also called the “20 Questions”, this old game stays one of the coolest games of all time. There will be a player in a hot seat who will think of a well-known character or person. Then, others will take in turn asking questions that are answerable by “Yes” or “No”. They should distinguish the character or person being referred to.
For players who guess it incorrectly will be eliminated and the right one wins.
#9. Would You Rather
You must come up with 2 hypothetical choices to play this game. Then, you can ask a question out of them. It is a great time to start debates with a group. One example is “Would you rather be poor yet good-looking or ugly but rich?” You can think of a variety of questions as you can to make the debate more interesting.
#10. Mosquito Bites
Every player comes with dot stickers and if possible, they should be in red to resemble mosquito bites. The goal is to avoid the stickers by putting them into players these so-called mosquito bites. You can do this in secret by sticking the dots on other campers.
Make sure that you will not get caught as they might take revenge on you. The first one to complete to consume these stickers will win.
The players sit in a circle surrounding the campfire. The first player shouts “1 Frog” and the second one says “2 Eyes”. The third player should shout out “4 legs” while the fourth one should utter “in the puddle”. The last person should say “KER-PLOP”. The goal is not to make any mistakes and check the number of frogs you can put into the puddle.
On the other hand, there is another way to play this game. You can do this through clapping to make the game more fun. When a player gets mistaken, everyone should “Frog” and the person who makes a mistake will be eliminated from the game. The rest can continue playing until you determine the winner.
#12. Truth or Dare
If you prefer a classical game, then this is one is the best choice. Almost everybody knows the fundamental rules. There can be so many punishments to be given during the game.
What’s so funny is that the specific action you are going to ask and the action may lead to. It is also like leaking some naked truths before you and everybody want to know what it is. Why don’t you try it and see how challenging and daring it is to play with friends.
Aside from campfires, singing and dancing together, or chitchatting, there are various games to enjoy letting everybody participate. Moreover, this will also bring out camaraderie with each participant. These games become the perfect chances to crack the funniest jokes, show your hidden talent or skills, and bring out the smartest person you can be.
