Fun Conversation Games to Play

Conversation games have gained popularity because of the Hip Hop culture and TV shows such as, Yo Momma and Wild N Out.

For some, getting a conversation started can be a daunting task, especially if it’s a new couple or with their kids. For others it can come quite naturally. Sometimes you and your mates might be stuck at a place where card games or board games aren’t an option. Regardless of the situation you are in; maybe you are waiting in line at the bank with your friend, driving, or when there’s load shedding at home, conversation games are a classic way to spend time.

These games not only improve your relationship with the other person, but also help to get people talking about things which they may not normally be comfortable with. Listed below are a few conversation games. All you need is a little bit of imagination.

Good Conversation Games

Truth Or Dare
For this game, the group has to sit in a circle. Now take a bottle, place it in the middle of the circle and spin it. When it stops its cap portion will face one player and other side will face another. One of them has to ask “truth or dare” to the other player. If he selects truth, player asks him question & if he selects dare, he has to given challenge to complete. There are ample sites suggesting funny questions and hilarious dares to complete. Here is our list of truth or dare questions.

My Name is Alex
This game is very helpful for kids, as it helps improve their vocabulary and sentence construction. This game starts with one person adding a name and a thing, but in an alphabetical order. Take for example, the first player says A my name is Alex and I like Apricots, the next player has to say, A my name is Alex and I like Apricots,B my name is Bosco and I like baseball. And the game continues with each player reciting and contributing more to the chain.

Two Facts And a Lie
In addition to getting to know your girlfriend/boyfriend better, this game will help you to understand how well (or poorly) your significant other lies. The premise of this game is easy: you need to state three stories, two of them are true and the third one is a lie. Your partner has to guess what is true and what is not.

How’s Yours?
You require a large group of friends or gather a large group of people to play this game. A group of people team up against one guesser. The team needs to provide clues to the guesser but which can’t be too easy or hard. It is somewhat like twenty questions, but the only question the guesser is allowed to ask is how’s yours? To find an object, all the team members need to decide on something which is fairly common and everybody has it; for example a passport, a cell phone, or an email account.

The guesser then questions one of the team members, how’s yours? The questioned individual has to provide an honest clue that will help the guesser to figure out the object. The guesser is entitled to only one guess per clue. If the guesser is able to answer your clue, then you have to be the next guesser.

Make It or Break It
All of us imagine the type of man/woman we want in our life. This particular game is all about that. In this game you need to imagine a man/woman with all the qualities you wish to have in them. Then one of the players says ‘Make it or Break it’ and adds one bad quality to them. Then the rest of the group decides if they would still prefer to be with that person even if they possess that bad quality.

Name Ten
This is a fun and frolic family related game and is very simple to play. One player has to declare a particular category such as fruits, animals, or birds. The other players need to list down ten examples of that category. The player who came up with this category needs to ascertain if the examples fit in or not.

Last Letter
This one’s simple yet entertaining enough. One player has to start off by saying a random word and the next person has to continue by using the last letter of the previous word. The game continues until you reach a point where you can’t make a word that starts with that letter and has not been used before. So remember, words are not to be repeated. When a player gets stuck, he loses. There are four rounds to finish, and every time you lose, you get a letter from the word ‘KILL’. Thus, if you lose four times, that means you will be collecting all the four letters and hence get killed and lose the game.

20 questions
This is a game of pure logic. If you like logical reasoning then this game is for you. You need to decide on a physical noun like cake, cloud, or dog. The other player gets twenty questions to ask to figure out the object. It can be any type of question as long as it can be answered with a yes or no. After the twenty questions are up, the other player has to come up with a noun and you have to guess it.

Would You Rather
It’s more like rhetorical questioning. This game includes imagining scenarios that are both weighty. You need to think creatively for this game. Of course you can always search for scenarios online and include them in your game. Here is our list of would you rather questions. One player has to ask questions to the other player. The questions should start with ‘Would you rather’ and the other player has to answer by selecting one out of the two options. For example: Would you rather be very skinny or very fat?

I Have Never Ever
This game requires gulping down a drink (tea, coffee, beer) and the players need to take turns by saying “I have never ever done X”. If the other players have done that thing, they need to take a sip of their drink. This way you would understand who has done it and who has not. The beauty of the game is talking about things which you know the other players might have done, in this way getting them to finish their drink first.

Playing conversation games will let you connect and also have fun. But one thing to keep in mind is to have a playful mindset. Select the games you like and get your party rolling.

Funny ‘Never Have I Ever’ Game Questions

Celebrities too have a blast playing this hilarious game!
The famous talk show host Ellen DeGeneres has wrung many embarrassing, dark, and downright funny secrets from her celebrity guests like Johnny Depp, Madonna, Gwyneth Paltrow, Justin Bieber, et al on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

It’s fun to play an aberrant once in a while, right? Yeah, but by deviancy we don’t mean something outright scandalizing or stupid, but something that is super fun and within agreeable purview of decency like popping questions that would never ever bob up in ordinary conversations. “Never Have I Ever” game will give you that opportunity to elicit answers to some crazy, outrageous, and wild questions.

The rules of the game are simple―all you need to do is to get yourselves seated in a circle and arrange for equal number of shot glasses for all the players. Begin the game by having someone say something that he/she has never attempted to do in their life, say for example “Never have I ever been to Disneyland”, so those of you who have been to Disneyland will swig down a shot glass. Take turns to keep the game flowing; the one who has downed the least number of shots becomes the winner.

Cute Games to Play through Texting

Romantic Love Story
Create a fairy tale and cherish the times spent together through text messaging. Recreate the day you first met, or a special moment that took your relationship to another level. You can send him something like “Once upon a time, there was this sad, pretty girl …” If he gets it, he would reply continuing the story as, “and she met a cute guy.” You could then respond by saying “He asked her to the school dance …” and so on. Continue making your story, and chances are you’ll end up talking of how amazing those times were.

2 Truths 1 Lie
This one is pretty popular. You have to text him 3 stories: 2 true, and 1 that isn’t. Your boyfriend has to guess which is the lie. Similarly, ask him to do the same to you. Include things like ‘I fell in love with you the first time I saw you’, ‘I absolutely love your odor’, ‘I hate meeting you outdoors’; meaning things that are impossible for him to guess (which aren’t true). This also helps you learn new things about each other.

Mobile Scavenger Hunt
Play treasure hunt with your guy through text messages. Send him to locations that hold significance in your relationship. Send him clues, such as “Go to the place where we had our first kiss.” Continue to send clues and have him text you when he arrives there to reveal the next clue. Keep the game happening by sending photo messages as hints. Consider your all-time favorite park to be the final destination. Hide behind a tree or bush. When he gets there, jump out to surprise him with a picnic basket and enjoy lunch under a tree.

Dare it or Remove it
This is a guess game. Text your partner a dare. If he fails to complete the dare, ask him to remove a piece of his clothing. Next comes your turn. After each dare, send pictures to each other. Y’all can get a little notorious here, but be careful and limit it to keeping things fun and loving.

Tried-and-True Couples
Show him that your love can be compared to legendary couples. Text him the name of a female celebrity or some female legend, and he must reply with her male love interest. For instance, you can text him “Romeo” and then he would text back “Juliet”. Next, text “Angelina” and then he would text back “Brad Pitt”, and so on. To make things difficult, consider giving him descriptions instead of names, “Married to ubiquitous reality star, and has a daughter named North West” and he would reply with “Kanye.” Then, let him take a turn to send you clues to guess.

Mystery Sound
This game works best for couples who have texting and media capabilities. Record 5-second snippets of random sounds or tones and send them to each other. See if either of you can guess the source or the song. You can also play this by sending lyrics. Chances are, you both may come to know about each others play-list (if you already don’t :-P).

Breakdown
Texting is all about words, so why not increase your Scrabble-ques vocabulary skills in the process? Just kidding on that part! With this game, you should break apart a word and rearrange its letters to create as many different word combinations as possible within an allotted time frame. But since you’re playing this with your guy, don’t forget to make the game sexy. Include romantic words or naughty gestures.

Movie Medley
Text your lover a movie title, and ask him to give a response with a movie title ONLY! The person has to connect his/her answer to the previous movie titles, and go on making a chain. Create your own (funny) story, and remember it’s all about loving and having fun with each other.
