These past couple of years have been rough! A good way to break out of the COVID blues is to have some good friends over for an adult card games night. There are multiple adult card games out there that range from totally bizarre, to extremely raunchy. Whichever one you choose, you are guaranteed to have a great time and hilarity will most definitely ensue.

Let’s get into the five best adult card games to have fun with friends. 

Cards Against Humanity

This is a classic among adult card games and never gets old. The main goal is to select the most absurd pairing and find out who in the group has the most warped mind. You can also buy expanded versions and will likely be left wondering how your friends really think days later. Cards Against Humanity bills itself as a party game for horrible people. The game is simple. Each round, one player asks a question from a black card, and everyone else answers with their funniest white card. 

Exploding Kittens

Exploding kittens is a card game for people who are into kittens and explosions and laser beams and sometimes goats. In this highly strategic, kitty-powered version of Russian roulette, players draw cards until someone draws an exploding kitten, at which point they explode, they are Dead, and they are out of the game – unless that player has a defuse card, which can defuse the kitten using things like laser pointers, belly rubs, and catnip sandwiches.

All of the other cards in the deck are used to move, mitigate, or avoid the exploding kittens. Exploding Kittens is the most-funded game in the history of Kickstarter, and claims it has paved the way for peace and tranquility in the modern world, making it the perfect game for a night with friends.

Never Have I Ever

Ever crack up thinking, “why did I DO that?” Of course you have! Ever wish you could be rewarded for the most ludicrous decisions you’ve ever made? Well… now’s your chance! Never Have I Ever is the ultimate party game for laughing with friends about the crazy lives you’ve lived. Just deal the cards, answer the questions, and laugh the night away at all the crazy things you’ve all done!

Midnight Outburst

This game is basically Taboo for adults. In your most inappropriate fashion, you will describe the word on your card while your partner tries to guess what in the world you are talking about. Midnight Outburst is certain to bring life to your next party.

Bad People Game

This game is absolutely hilarious! Want to know what your friends really think of you? Want to get to know your friends better? This is a surefire way to do just that. With each question a vote is placed on who in the friend group this sounds the most like. Once done with the round you get to share ridiculous and hilarious stories. And if you get tired of seeing the same cards over and over again, there are multiple expansion packs out there. 

The holidays are a great time to get together with friends. Everyone has been stuck inside and not socializing. So why not have a night where everyone brings their favorite dish, and play a card game that will not only make you laugh, but allow you to get to know one another better? You could also make this a weekly or monthly occurrence and switch up whose house the game night is held at. This way the planning responsibility doesn’t fall on one person. Game nights are a wonderful way to unwind from the daily pressures of adulthood and to grow friendships.
