30 Fun Challenges to Do With Friends At Your Next Party

Sometimes, the usual fun and games aren't enough to have a good time. There are only so many times you can play Never Have I Ever before you already know all the most intimate details of your friends' lives. But that doesn't mean you have to head outside and spend money, on something like bowling or the movies to have fun There are a ton of games to play with friends that you haven't already grown tired of. But some of them can get really gross, so make sure you give your friends a heads up so that they don't show up wearing their favorite outfits. Whether you're looking for a food challenge or a brand new game to play, things would certainly get interesting with any one of these, and make sure you don't forget the prizes if you want to see your friends really get into it. Here's a list of fun challenges to do with your friends.

20 Questions Challenge

Chances are you've probably already heard of this game. The goal here is to stump your friends. To play the game, one person is chosen as the answerer. The answerer has to pick something, usually an object, but they cannot reveal to the others what they've chosen. Now, your friends can ask up to 20 questions altogether to figure out what it is you've chosen. The catch is they can only ask yes or no questions.

Egg Drop Challenge

You'll be flexing your creating skills for this challenge. In order to play it, you'll need to get together a bunch of materials like newspapers, popsicle sticks, glue or any other craft supplies. Split your friends into groups. Each group will be tasked with building something that will prevent an egg from breaking after it's thrown from two stories up. The teams that can successfully do this win.

Eat It or Wear It Challenge

This challenge is bound to get messy, so wear something that you don't mind getting dirty. In order to play it, you'll need an assortment of foods and each kind of food will go into a separate numbered bag. When it's your turn, you will choose a number from a bowl and grab the bag of food assigned to that number. Now, you have to choose between eating a spoonful of that food or wearing it, as in wiping it all over your shirt or face. To make this game really hilarious, remember to add in a few foods that you think people won't like.

Mannequin Challenge

The mannequin challenge was so big in 2016, but that doesn't mean you can't revive it in 2020. You know how this goes. Ask your friends to freeze like mannequins as you take a video of the room. The result is usually hilarious.

Impression Challenge

This challenge involves getting your friends to guess correctly. Write the name of several famous personalities onto a post-it and throw them in a hat. When it's your turn, you will choose a paper from the hat and prepare an impression of the person you've chosen. In order to win, your friends must be able to guess who you are.

Ice Bucket Challenge

It was a big hit a couple of years ago, but that doesn't mean you can't still do it now. All you need is a large bucket of water with some ice inside and some willing participants. Then, get ready to hear some screams as the ice water hits them. Even better, if someone refuses to do it, have them make a donation to the ALS Association, in honor of the original challenge.

The Final Dab Challenge

Wings night at home? Might as well try out the Final Dab from Hot Ones. You've seen your fave celebs trying it and now it's your turn to see if you can survive the final dab.
