Valentine party games can be just as fun for adults as they are for kids. If you want your Valentine party to be fun for all of your guests, you will need to introduce several games. By choosing games that revolve around the Valentine's Day theme and are appropriate for adults, you can make your party more cohesive and enjoyable. Valentine party games also can make people comfortable within the group of guests.
Valentine Party Game Ideas for Adults
This game allows your guests to be creative and proves to be a hilarious activity. Ask for some brave men to volunteer to be in a beauty pageant. Divide the rest of the partygoers into teams, with one team per pageant contestant. Give each team some "beauty" supplies such as tape, scissors, tissue paper, streamers, ribbons, toilet paper, tin foil and makeup. Allow about 15 to 20 minutes for the teams to construct a "dress" for their contestant. If the teams have time, tell them to complete the look by fixing the contestants makeup and hair. Once the time is up, have a mock pageant in which you have the contestants model their new looks. Have the group vote on the most lovely contestant.
This game is played similar to the "The Newlywed Game" television show. Before the party you need to prepare some questions for the game. You will need about three questions for the women and three more for the men. Try to use questions that might generate an amusing response. Examples include: "My favorite thing that my wife does for me is __," "My husband's most annoying habit is ___**," and "My spouse's best attribute is his/her ___**." When you are ready to play the game during the party, ask for three to five couples to volunteer. Ask the men to leave the room first and give each woman several pieces of construction paper and a marker. Ask the women three questions that you have prepared and have them answer the questions and record their responses on the construction paper. Bring the men back into the room and ask them the same questions you asked the women. Let the men answer each question, after which their partner reveals her answer. If the answers match, the couple gets a point. Repeat this process in reverse so that the women leave the room next. The couple with the most points at the end of the game wins.
This is a funny, messy game in which couples race to feed each other dessert. Ask for several couples to volunteer. You might want to give them an apron or similar protective clothing to wear over their regular clothes. Have each couple place their hands behind their backs. Decide who is going to be the eater and who will be the feeder. Give the feeders some sort of large, messy snack such as a cream-filled doughnut or a cupcake. Place the snack in the feeders' mouths (not all the way in but just far enough that they can grip it with their lips). When you say "go," have the feeders attempt to feed the snack to their partners. A couple wins if its eater is the first to finish the snack.
