If you asked your average man what they thought happened when women decided to have a lady’s night in, they would come with several remarks. Some will try to be witty, and they will inevitably fail. Others will respond a little more guardedly observing decorum, and there will be a third group who will be outright silly. Yet, try not to blame men too much. After all, coming with a proper set of game ideas for your lady’s night can indeed be daunting.
We are here to bring you the arguably best ideas for your next girls’ night in and help you get the most of your quality time with your friends. And the best part is that you can be yourself and don’t worry about living up to some societal stereotype about womanhood. It’s your special time, and here are quite a few decent ideas about how to make it even more entertaining.
Sing Your Heart Out – Time for Karaoke
Karaoke is indeed one of the most entertaining ways to spend your time. It’s easy to get into, and even the most guarded and “untalented” singer among your friends will loosen up after a few mild drinks.
All you need is to set your favorite track on the flat screen, gather your girlfriends and pour your heart out in rhythmic – and not so much – singing. As Beyoncé puts it ‘Girls, we run this motha, yeah’.
Truth or Dare
You might think that Truth or Dear is a silly game played in mid-school to dig up dirt on someone or dear yourself to do something you wanted to but never had a good excuse to. Now, having a quick game or two of Truth or Dare for your lady’s night in does sound like a great idea.
Here’s your way to loosen up and swap stories with your girlfriends and see who’s been up to what. Truth or Dare is not just the means to pry away something embarrassing from your friends, though, so don’t worry and set a pace and baseline for the game you are comfortable with.
Take Them Out Card Games
There are tons of great and fun games you might want to get into once you have had the opportunity to see how many cool card games you can pick and choose from. Now, you are probably wondering, what card games can be worthy enough for your next lady’s nights in?
Well, as it turns out, there are quite a few! According to CasinoSites.us, you can play such gems as Card Against Humanity, Joking Hazard, or even Texas Hold’em. Poker doesn’t sound like our sort of thing, but strip poker – now that’s another story.
If you are not in the mood to get in the nuddy, you might still want to consider Red Flags, a game where people create dating profiles and then assign one embarrassing quality to the potential partner. It’s up to the person choosing a partner to try to justify and pick the partner with the least embarrassing attribute.
A fun game for a girls’ night in and something most ladies will be able to relate to, no doubt.
Your Own Small Dance Dance Revolution
You sang, you played some cards, perhaps it’s time to break out of your stiffness and shake your booty. A girls’ night in doesn’t honestly seem as fulfilling without some proper dance-offs.
Whether you want to make it a competition, belly dance, or your friend has a pole at home, there are multiple ways to play games and have fun when you set out to throw in a few killers dance moves among your friends.
The best thing is there is no-one to judge, and you can go truly wild.
One Word for You – Twister
Twister may seem like something that has long-lived past its viability, but the game is still as fun as it first came out. There’s something devious in having your friends assume all sorts of new acrobatic positions to reach a colored smudge on the floor, and some ladies will enjoy this one.
In any event, if you are the more athletic type and don’t mind an exciting challenge, Twister may be the perfect pick for you and your girlfriends.
Quizzes, Quizzes, Quizzes!
Channel your inner gossip girl unabashedly and partake in a dedicated gossiping session. Do you want to make things interesting? There is more than a single way to do just that. Just look up some quizzes about celebrities – if that is your thing – and have some fun testing your general knowledge about what you may even consider nonsense.
Either way, it’s always fun to talk and prod fun at other people, and if you can make it all in the form of a game, you will have a cool activity to do during girl’s night!
Never Have I Ever
Speaking of gossiping, “Never Have I Ever” is a great way to loosen up. You can even add a few drinking rules in there if you don’t mind stripping yourself off your inhibitions as well. The game is quite gossipy, and if you play with a close circle of friends, you might not have all that much to do, but don’t worry – there are many similar games you can choose from instead.
For example, “Who Am I” is a nice variation that is less gossipy and definitely can test your general knowledge, something many people enjoy. To pin the answer, you got to ask questions such as “Are you alive?”, “Are you alive” and so on.
Always a Good Time for Romantic Comedies Marathon
There is nothing stereotypical about a good flick. Even though guys wouldn’t want to admit it – they do like “chick flicks”. Now, when your best lady friends surround you, it does make sense to put on a classic and watch through it while treating yourself to all the foodie delights you have been aching for – waistline be damned.
