6 Perfect Party Games for College Students

Picture this: you're sitting around your dorm with some friends, and you notice everyone distracting themselves with their phones or falling asleep from boredom. What's the only way to get this party started? No, not alcohol or drugs, it's BOARD GAMES! Specifically, ones that are tailored towards young adults like us! Here are some great ones that you could use to liven up any get-together.

1. Cards Against Humanity

Amazon/Crystal

Pretty much a staple for any college dorm. For those of you who don't know, this is an incredibly inappropriate card game wherein the judge reads off a question and picks their favorite out of everyone's contributions. Some of the funniest cards include, “a micropig wearing a tiny raincoat and booties," “waking up half-naked in a Denny's parking lot" and “a really cool hat."

2. Superfight

Similar to Cards Against Humanity, with a card game design, only this time, you're given a superhero card and two attributes for the character. Each player has to defend why their “hero" would defeat the other player's cards in a battle. However, not every attribute is beneficial; for example, you could have an Iron Man with a laser gun, but find out that it's actually a baby. This game has a lot to do with how far you are willing to argue to win, and could lead to some serious tension between friends. Happy fighting!

3. Game of Things

There are many versions of this game idea, but this one is great because it practically forces you to be inappropriate. Essentially, a question is asked, everyone writes down answers, and in a circle everyone has to guess who wrote which answer. This game can show people's true colors, and your friends may surprise you.

4. Dirty Words

A dice game with a mix of conjunctions, nouns and "dirty" words, like “hard" or “slip." The team of players roll the dice and have to create full sentences--essentially Bananagrams with words.

5. Fibbage

This game can be played using Steam, Xbox One, PS4 or Amazon Fire TV, with your smart phone as a controller. During the game, a question is asked, and each player submit answers that they think others will believe to be the correct one (or just to be funny) alongside the actual answer. Players vote on which answer is their favorite and the one they think is correct, and points are distributed accordingly.

6. Red Flags

Finally, this game can be an excellent test of how well your friends know each other. Every player is given two characteristics of a date for the bachelor or bachelorette, and all players must argue why their person would be the most ideal candidate for them.

So the next time you find yourself bored with some friends, try out these board games, and let the fun ensue!

Exposing Kids To Nature Is The Best Way To Get Their Creative Juices Flowing

1223923

Whenever you are feeling low and anxious, just simply GO OUTSIDE and embrace nature! According to a new research study published in Frontiers in Psychology, being connected to nature and physically touching animals and flowers enable children to be happier and altruistic in nature. Not only does nature exert a bountiful force on adults, but it also serves as a therapeutic antidote to children, especially during their developmental years.

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

Were all teenagers and twenty-somethings bingeing the latest "To All The Boys: Always and Forever" last night with all of their friends on their basement TV? Nope? Just me? Oh, how I doubt that.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
