Drunk Stoned or Stupid
How it works: This party game is great for a group of friends who all know each other. Easy to learn, players have turns pulling one card from the pack and reading it aloud. Each person in the group then says who they think should be tagged with the card drawing on their past experience with the person or just on personality traits. It's a fun group game that celebrates friendship and roots out all those crazy decisions your friends ever made. There's a bitter edge, a sharp sense of style, and some hilarious prompts to keep everyone rolling around.

This game is a great ice breaker to play with new friends as these playing cards instantly remove all sense of reserve in everyone's effort to create the funniest answer.

Cards Against Humanity
How it works: In dark times it may be essential to discover your darker sense of humor and Cards Against Humanity is the card game that certainly isn't for the faint of heart. A great party piece, this adult card game can be compared to Apples to Apples. Using phrases and questions with blanks, the aim is to pair answer and question cards in the most provocative and outrageous way possible. Nicknamed the party game for horrible people, you are probably best playing this with a group of close friends. Cards Against Humanity never gets old as you can keep adding to the joke with expansion packs.

How it works: Aussies are the best when it comes to an adult board game that tasks the classic game of cards and makes you smarter and sharper all while screaming swear words at your friends. This game ticks all the boxes - not only is it hilarious but it also has something of a therapeutic effect (like we said, screaming profanities is actively encouraged). It works by players taking turns to flip over a caption card and shout out exactly what you see. You keep taking it in turns until someone messes up and are forced to pick up all the cards in the discard pile. The aim is to be the first to get rid of all your remaining cards. While the premise sounds simple enough, this popular game knows how to mess with your brain and cause endless hilarity for all involved.

How it works: Hailed as the party game you probably shouldn't play; Bad People is all about finding out what your friends really think of you. A great game for the thick-skinned, this is one of those fun card games that calls on players to nominate their friends when answering questions like 'least likely to be a target for identity theft' or 'who gets paid too much for what they do'. While it may sound like a tight walk rope over a whole ditch of nasty things, it’s a great party card game for some tongue in cheek fun. Of course, for all those sensitive souls out there you may want to sit this one out or invite your friends to get you drunk before you play.

How it works: If this year has taught us anything it's that yes indeed, shit does happen. If you want a playful reminder of that fact, then this card game for your friend group is sure to be a hit on games night. Each card sports a situation that could either be determined unfortunate all the way up to the worst thing ever. Players take turns to guess where the card/situation ranks on the misery chart and if guess right - you keep the card. The aim of the game is to be the first to collect ten cards.
