Try these nine food games, and I promise you that your game nights will never remain the same. 

Make smooth pap 

If you can make smooth pap, you should add it to your CV because it’s a skill for days. This game involves two people making pap the way they know how. Whoever comes out with the smoothest pap wins. Good luck with that.

Pour all the pepper you can imagine inside a pot of Indomie. People win if anyone can finish their plate of Indomie without doing “ooootsss aaah” (you know the sound I’m talking about) or drinking water in the first five minutes. Sorry to your toilet sha.

Food pictionary

Write down as many words related to food as possible in small pieces of paper then put them in a bowl. People will pick a word from the bowl and try to draw it on a board for other people to guess within a limited time. The group with the highest right answers wins. Good luck trying to draw ponmo.
