Fun Board Games For Adults

These board games for adults are a necessity for any game night! And who doesn’t love a good game night?

Game nights are my jam. And a perfect way to kick back and have some fun with friends.

I can’t think of a board game I have met that I didn’t like.

Family game nights have a special place in my heart.

But I am always down for an adult game night. Friends, food, and fun. This is what grown-up game night is like in my house.

These are our favorite games to bust out when it is adults-only around the table! Some of these are extremely inappropriate. So, kids should really not even be in the same room!

A few of these definitely go on the list of best board games of all time!

Here are 11 Fun Board Games For Adults

1) Utter Nonsense

Utter Nonsense Naughty Edition
  • Combine silly voices and accents with even sillier phrases to create sayings that are just plain ridiculous!
  • All players except the judge have to use the same accent/voice, so you are all in it together! Best of all is that many accents/voices can be interpreted differently, and that adds to the hilarity!
  • For example, maybe the accent/voice card is Pooping. How the heck do you do that “voice”? Go ahead…think about it. Funny, huh? Now do that “voice” and say one of your phrase cards, like: “Home is where you can drink red wine in your underwear.” Even funnier!
  • All players have to use the same accent/voice card that’s drawn, but you get to choose which of your phrase cards you use! You just want the judge to pick yours as the best!
  • It’s a fun, laugh-out-loud game for 4 to 20 players, ages 17+ (there’s some more “adult” content here!)

Some friends brought this over and it instantly became one of my favorites!

This game is all about funny accents and phrases. Put the two together and the laughing will not stop!

2) Cards Against Humanity

Cards Against Humanity
  • A party game for horrible people.
  • Comes with 500 white cards and 100 black cards for eternal replayability.
  • Includes a booklet of sensible game rules and preposterous alternate rules.
  • This is the main game. Buy this first.
  • America’s #1 gerbil coffin.

When it comes to adult games, this one is my favorite. But be warned. This game is very inappropriate!

One player asks a question from a card. Everyone else puts down a card they think has the funniest response.

Or I should say the response that will make some people blush!

3) What Do You Meme?

WHAT DO YOU MEME? Core Game – The Hilarious Adult Party Game for Meme Lovers
  • Brand New in box; The product ships with all relevant accessories
  • Judge’s Choice: The winner of each round is decided by a rotating judge; Pro tip: pick your caption card to match the judge’s sense of humor
  • How to Play: Compete with your friends and family to create the funniest memes; Do this by using one of your dealt caption cards to caption the photo card in each round
  • More hilarity: We also make other party games inspired by pop culture; Check out our store for tons more good stuff
  • (Playback Language)

Christmas was a blast last year with this game!

I was next to my husband’s grandma and my face hurt from laughing so hard!

A photo card is played and you are trying to create the best meme by matching up a caption card!

4) Joking Hazard

Joking Hazard by Cyanide & Happiness – a funny comic building party game for 3-10 players, great for game night
  • Joking Hazard is an EXTREMELY not-for-kids party game from the minds of Cyanide & Happiness, the hit webcomic.
  • Three or more players compete to build funny and terrible comics about friendship, violence, sex, and everything in between.
  • 360 panel cards (including 10 add-your-own-words cards) combine to form millions of awful situations, and sometimes nice ones.
  • High quality cards can be burned for heat after society collapses.
  • Ages 17+

Those same friends who brought over Utter Nonsense also brought this over. Safe to say I like their taste in board games.

Players take turns adding a card to build a comic. Sounds innocent enough. But these comics are equal parts hilarious and inappropriate.

5) Watch Ya Mouth

Watch Ya Mouth Card Game
  • DEPLORABLE GAME FOR DEPLORABLE PEOPLE: The Watch Ya Mouth Adult Bundle is perfect if you are a horrible person who likes to say naughty things and see your friends say horrible things.
  • TOP SELLING, ORIGINAL GAME & ADULT PACK: Get the original Watch Ya Mouth Card Game plus the adult phrase expansion pack #1. Great complement to Cards Against Humanity.
  • AS SEEN ON TV: Featured card game on Good Morning America, Buzzfeed’s “The Try Guys” & More!
  • LAUGH OUT LOUD: Imagine your friends faces while they try to say explicit things while wearing cheek retractors/mouth pieces.
  • ENJOY WITH FRIENDS: 3-10 Players wear cheek retractors and speak out phrases while teammates guess what they are saying. Includes 143 regular phrase cards and 143 adults phase cards.

Put a mouthpiece in and say the words on a card. Super simple and super hilarious!

This game is so dang fun. And I especially get a kick out of watching people drool.

You know what else I just thought of? This game is actually not inappropriate. It would work for a family game night!

6) The Game of Nasty Things

  • WHO SAID THAT?!—Try to guess which of your crazy friends said what!
  • GREAT FOR GAME NIGHT—Gather friends and have a blast!

Each player writes a response to one of the many hilarious and raunchy adult topics.

Now for the best part. Trying to guess which friend said what!

Ok, this game is not inappropriate(unless you make it that way) but it can definitely get intense.

My husband gets so serious when we play this one. This game is great to bring out the competitive side in everyone.

Don’t forget to keep a dictionary on standby!

Every card has a word at the top that your teammates need to guess. But underneath that is a list of words you CAN NOT say. This is harder than it sounds.
