9 Games Night Ideas You Need To Try Out ASAP

August 2, 2021

If you are a Nigerian who enjoys having fun and throwing parties, then you are probably in need of games night ideas that will make everything interesting. Games nights can end up as orgies, especially if you are in Lagos or Abuja, but if you take our ideas, you can take your houseguests to greater realms that will not involve inordinate genital bumping.

Here are 9 games night ideas you should try out at your next houseparty. Thank us later.

1. Dictation.

This is the best way to warm up a games night. Start with something intellectual, let every dead brain arise and get to work. By the time your guests leave your party and go on to win huge spelling bee championships, they will thank you.

2. Shelling egusi.

If you have plans to do this, wait until your mother brings home a big Bagco super sack of egusi seeds. You can then use that opportunity to throw a games night. You give everybody a bowl of unshelled egusi seeds. First to finish it will get a special prize. That prize is up to you.

3. Prayer chain.

Prayer Chain | Prayer | Adults | Ministries

You know why this is a brilliant games night idea? Nigeria needs prayers. Not every time fornication at a games night. Sometimes you need games night ideas that will open the heavens. Let your guests join hands together and begin to speak in tongues. First to prophesy will get a gift.

4. Removing braids.

Do you have a lot of braids you need to loosen? Throw a games night! The moment your guests enter, hand them a picking comb. The number of braids they are able to take out will determine the amount of alcohol they will drink. One braid is equal to one shot.

5. Solving mathematics equations.

There are games night ideas that will lead to nothing, and there are games night ideas that will give you joy. This one belongs to the latter. Imagine building the mental muscles of your houseguests so that they leave your games night and go on to win Cowbellopedia. Rahhhh!

6. Picking beans.

The country is hard. People will appreciate this idea, especially if you let the person who picks the greatest portion of beans go home with their pickings.

7. Name of place, name of place, name of place that you know.

This doesn’t have to be limited to name of place. It can be the names of anything from names of person to names of brands. Just ask them to each tear out a sheet of paper and pick a comfortable spot. Then throw it all the way back to primary school.

8. I call on.

Just make sure you have enough space to do this. It will be very fun, believe us. And your guests will enjoy it, a bunch of adults who are finally escaping the hard, cold cage of adulthood. Let them be free to run like children.

9. After round one, original Panadol extra.

No, not that round one. It’s the after round one from primary school. This is a list of innocent games night ideas, please.
