Kniffel/Yahtzee Game

Kniffel is one of the most famous games and is somewhat reminiscent of dice poker. The rules are simple and can be varied as desired.

You need 5 dice, a dice cup, a preprinted dice block (a labeled slip of paper is also sufficient) and a pen to enter the dice results achieved.
Each player has three throws. In these three throws he tries to score as many points as possible for one of the fields described in the second section. The player can put dice with the matching number aside on the first two throws and does not have to roll them again. After the third throw at the latest, you have to fill out a field on your scrap sheet. Then it is the turn of the next player in clockwise order to roll the dice and roll three times.
The game is over when every player has filled in all fields. Now the points are added up. First the points with the ones up to the sixes. Anyone who has achieved at least 65 points here will receive 35 extra points. Finally, the total is added up. Whoever has the most points is the winner of the round.

Charade

The principle of charade is quickly explained: Simply split into two teams, write terms on cards and the guessing can begin. The following applies: The performer is expressly not allowed to speak, draw letters with his fingers or use any objects. The player is only allowed to work with pantomimes, while his team guesses which word it could be. For every term guessed in time, there is a point – and which team has guessed the best wins.

A pastime for 2 people where skill and concentration are required.

The game board has different areas: for the white player the home area and the out are at the bottom right, for the black player the home area and out are at the top right. There is also the bar in the middle of the game board.

Object of the game:
Every player wants to be the first to bring his stones to his home. As you can see in the picture below, the white player moves his pieces counter-clockwise and the black player moves his pieces clockwise. When a player has collected all of his stones in his home, he may throw the stones out completely. Whoever throws out all of his stones first, wins.

At the beginning of the game of “Truth or Dare” you sit up in a circle and position an empty bottle in the middle. Now the first player starts by turning the bottle with a small push. After a few seconds it comes to a standstill, the bottleneck now points to a player and he gets the question from the bottle twister: Truth or Dare?
Now there are two different options: On the one hand, the interviewee can decide for the truth, so the screwdriver can ask him a question that the interviewee has to answer truthfully. Second, of course, the person asked can also opt for duty. In this case, the bottle-twister can think of a task that the respondent must now perform.

Examples from us:

– What is your most embarrassing experience?

– What’s the bravest thing you’ve ever done?

– What was the biggest mistake of your life?

– What crime have you already committed?

Jenga

A very good concentration game which guarantees a lot of fun.
Build up all the stones to form a stable tower. Place three stones next to each other. The next layer is rotated at a 90 degree angle so that one stone touches all of the stones below. This way your tower will be a little more stable. In the end you should have 18 layers.
Now you have to try to take the individual stones out of the tower without it collapsing. Whoever brings the tower to collapse has lost.

Jenga as a drinking game for adults

The game is basically the same as previously described. To turn it into a fun drinking game, all you need to do is label individual stones with small tasks or questions. There are no limits to you there. These words on the stones are instructions for the player who pulled the stone out of the tower.
A few ideas:

Drink 1/2/3 .. Shot / -s

Distribute 1 – Find someone who has to drink from once.

In one go – Drink up your drink ex.

Titanic – The ship goes down, everyone has to finish their drink.

Joke – tell a joke or drink three times.

The clock is ticking – From now on each player only has 10 seconds to finish his turn.

Clothing swap – Choose two players, they have to swap a selected item of clothing with each other.

Taboo

A world-wide popular parlor game that guarantees stomach ache from laughing.

Two teams compete in Taboo to explain or guess most of the terms within a certain time, which is determined by an hourglass. There are five related terms for each term searched for, which must not be used in the explanation. There are also rules for explaining a term using a dice.

Flip cup

Flip Cup is one of the drinking games that is especially fun with many other players. It’s easy to explain and suitable for everyone and can be a lot of fun. Experience has shown that a competition will quickly develop that is primarily about history and strong nerves.

All you need is: (beer pong) cups, at least two teams with two players each (the more the better), a table, drinks (usually beer).

The two teams stand on the opposite side of the table. Each player is given their own cup in front of them. It is filled with beer, for example. The player on the far left (or far right) in the row clinks with his opponent on the other side of the table. You both empty the cup asap. Then place the cup with the opening facing up on the edge of the table. Now you have to “flip” it with one hand until it lands with the opening on the table and stops. If a player has managed the flip, he puts his hand on the cup.
Now the next player on the team immediately starts drinking without bumping and flipping the cup afterwards. The team won if the players all have an upturned cup in front of them.
