Once the sun is down and the bonfire is lit, the fun and games are ready to begin! Star gazing, having a cold beer or singing a song in unison around the campfire usually suffices, but if you want to up your campfire game and everyone’s not ready to go to bed yet, try these super fun camping games for adults – it will surely make your camping trip even more memorable!
Two Truths and A Lie
This is a classic fun game that encourages everyone to participate. It serves as a great ice breaker if you’re just hanging around the campfire at night. This is best played among individuals who don’t know each other too well (think camp neighbors who decided to hang out together).
Each participant will think of of 2 facts about them (it could also be something they’ve done) and write those down in a piece of paper. Be creative about what you write – the stranger and the more vague the fact is, the more fun the game. In addition, come up with a lie.
Take turns to state these 3 “facts” and have everyone guess which of the 3 is the lie!
Another classic game that is perfect for playing around a campfire. This one is best played by a large group of people – the more, the merrier!
Everyone sits around in a circle and will be asked to close their eyes. The “leader” (someone who won’t be playing) will walk around and choose the “murderer” by tapping them on the shoulder. If you get a tap, then you’re the murderer.
Once the murderer is chosen, the leader will ask everyone to open their eyes. The murderer then proceeds to “kill” victims by winking at them secretly and discreetly and they must do so without anyone from the circle noticing.
If you get winked at, you’re out. One can only win if someone who’s still in the game catches the murderer wink at someone.
This is a fairly easy game with simple rules but is extremely fun to play. Basically, someone will begin the game by saying a famous person’s name out loud. The next person in the circle must think of another famous person with a first name that starts with the first letter of the previously mentioned famous person. If it’s your turn and you can’t think of an answer, you’re out.
