Playing a party game is a great way to include guests in a shared experience while gently coaxing them to come out of their shells and bond with one another. It also provides a welcome respite from the predictable dinner party routine of small talk over mild music.

So, the next time you’re hosting a party, take out one of these 11 games. There are a number of risqué options that might not make you comfortable to play in front of, say, parents and extended relatives. But all of the picks will spark laughter as players strategize, collaborate, and go for the gold together. Whatever the circumstances may be, these adult games are sure to make memories whenever you decide to play.

Speak Out

On the outset, the “Speak Out” game is titled perfectly: Each player is tasked with saying a silly phrase pulled from a deck of 200 cards, and it’s up to the other players to repeat it. But here’s the laugh-out-loud twist: The players have to wear a mouthpiece as they declare these silly phrases, which makes it almost impossible to know exactly what’s being said at first. Think of it as a game of telephone that’s mumbled on the first go.

If you have a close-knit group of friends—or you’d like to try your luck with some open-minded strangers—then this game is exactly what you need for an entertaining night in. It all starts when a player pulls from a deck of 100 cards, which asks a scandalous question. Then the players anonymously vote on who in the group will answer the question, and the “winner” has to spill the beans. It all sounds like no big deal until you read the questions you have to answer.

Draw What

Now, if you would rather see scandalous content than say it, then try your hand at this game. Players choose from 375 different phrases and words to draw on a whiteboard, and correct guesses allow a team to move forward on the corresponding colored squares. Don’t run out of time while drawing, and definitely don’t get bashful as the game gets underway—because if you do, you’ll be blushing the entire time.
