Having a great time and engaging in fascinating games is arguably the most enjoyable and marvelous experience you can have. Have you ever pondered hosting a gathering and playing party games on a virtual platform? If so, let’s explore one of the most intriguing and entertaining concepts, ‘Facebook Party Games,’ today. You may have already surmised from the title what this party game entails. Below, we will explore some Facebook group game concepts you can experiment with.
What Is a Facebook Party?
An enjoyable and immersive method of organizing a party through Facebook that can be hosted within specific groups, pages, or a small private team. The concept is simple: all activities and tasks will be planned online, and time limits will be set based on the availability of all members/guests. To have greater control, and unlike a traditional offline party, there might be a host who will take full responsibility for the success of this Facebook online party. The host’s primary role and responsibility will be to graciously welcome all guests or members online on time, introduce them to other members, and guide them through all the rules, restrictions, and incentives that are part of this theme party.
1. Guess That Movie
This is quite popular, but keep in mind that this may be your initial attempt at playing it online with new people and your friends. The host could divide the guests into two equal teams to make it more interesting. Now, both teams will provide the host with their favorite movie names, and the host will go through each one and ask the opposing team to guess the movie. For example, if the host chooses a movie name from TEAM B, the host will inform any member of TEAM A, and that member of TEAM A will act out the movie name to their team. It’s important to remember that going offline and trying to cheat by muting your microphone will result in disqualification. A poor internet connection will make it even more engaging and amusing.
2. Pass & Take It on You
One thing is for sure, all of these games will be incredibly enjoyable. To begin this game, all members must be extremely active. The game can be played via text in the group. The host will select a word, let’s say ‘BRAVO,’ and the game round will commence. Every other member in the group will start typing ‘BRAVO’ as many times as they desire, and it is up to the host to decide when to end the round by typing ‘STOP.’ At that point, the person who was the last to type ‘BRAVO’ must carry out whatever punishment or ‘Dare’ the majority of the group members decide upon.
3. Guess That Member
This one is truly intriguing and will reveal how well your friends truly know you. The game is simple and should be conducted via a video call. It begins with each player writing down or listing 3 to 5 facts about themselves and secretly passing them on to the host. Now that the list has been received, it is time to randomly select one of the facts, and the host will discuss it.
Everyone else has to guess to whom those words and things belong, and every time someone guesses correctly, that person earns 5 points, and so on, until every member on the list is accounted for. Finally, the member with the most points for guessing correctly is declared the winner. Although it may seem somewhat mundane, the intriguing things, secrets, false facts, and other tidbits about your friends will undoubtedly capture your attention and interest in this game.
4. Pick Any Number
This is a simple yet challenging activity that can be rewarding for some players depending on their luck. The game is straightforward; members take turns selecting a number via video conference (it could be any number from 1 – 20, depending on the host and their desired range). Let’s say a member chooses number 5, and inside it is written something like ‘Drink hot sauce water,’ that member must carry out that task. It doesn’t have to be a task or penalty every time; it could be something rewarding like giving $50 in cash to all members, a meal from KFC, and so on.
5. Live Scrabble
Another timeless game you can play online! Create your own word graphic and save it on your phone or mobile device. Go live at the designated time and date and share your screen with your members to show them the visuals. The person who can create the most words out of them before you say “STOP” is declared the winner. You can have multiple rounds of this game depending on how long you want to stay live.
