Games night is an easy way to combine your favourite drink (preferably alcoholic) with fun games to have a night of belly laughs and booze. We have put together 4 games to try:
Never have I ever
Unveil your besties deepest, darkest secrets and find out the juicy gossip with a game of Never Have I Ever.
Simply take turns in saying the phrase “never have I ever…”, followed with something you have never done. It can be cheeky, funny, or even mischievous, you choose! Whoever has done that action has to drink, so if you are the cheeky friend, be prepared to feel a little bit (or a lot) tipsy.
A game full of ridiculous and inappropriate sentences, what could go wrong? All you must do is keep a straight face… Just write down any sentence that is impossible not to cackle at and put them into a hat, players choose a slip of paper and attempt to read aloud the sentence without even a little smile. If you fail to keep a straight face, guess what, you drink. Good luck!
Instead of chugging beer, make it a bit more elegant-ish and down prosecco instead. The game is all about aim. Set up 6 cups at each end of a table (preferably a rectangular table). Then use a ping pong ball to throw into the other team’s cup, if you shoot correctly and score into a cup then the opposing team must drink that cup of prosecco. Continue until all the cups have been drunk, the more you drink the harder it gets!
There ain’t no party like a cocktail party, are we right! Join us at One Warwick Park and let the MIX-IT cocktail making classes come to you. Choose your favourite cocktail and mix it like it’s hot to create a concoction that will blow you away.
How confident are you? Start with a cup in the middle of the table, pass a coin around and have all the gals take turns in flipping the coin. Before flipping it the players whose turn it is, pours a portion of their drink into the cup in the middle of the table. This can be a little or a lot depending on how confident you feel… Before flipping, guess heads or tails, guess wrong and you drink what you poured into the cup, guess right and the coin moves onto the next player who will then add to the middle cup once again.
Bottomless brunch is a world where day drinking is encouraged and the phrase ‘it’s 5 o’clock somewhere’ is the sentence of the day. The new trend to sip cocktails with a plate full of hash browns surrounded by your girlfriends is one you don’t want to miss out on.
