Just because we’re all grown up doesn’t mean we have to leave the games to the kiddos. You can never be too old to play a round of party games with your friends and family.

Games are a fun way to interact and to find out a lot about your friends. They eliminate awkward silences, help even the closest friends get to know each other better, and bring a ton of laughter. They’re my absolute favorite way to spend an evening with friends.

And that’s why today I’m sharing 15 of the most fun party games that you can play with your friends.
