6 Perfect Party Games for College Students

For all of you crazy college kids.

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!

May Is Mental Health Awareness Month, A Reminder We Need Even More In Quarantine

You're going through something brand new — that's worth talking about.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month. This isn't new to 2020, but oh man, if we ever needed a reminder about the importance of mental health, now is the time. With different states all over the place in regard to stay-at-home orders, phased reopenings, and a "new normal," we're experiencing conflict, fear, changes, and unknowns that can easily trigger mental struggles we already have or spark feelings we've never had before. Yes, May is always Mental Health Awareness Month, but in quarantine, that need for positive mental health is taken to a whole new level.

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).

13 Reasons We're Using Quarantine As The Ultimate Excuse For Online Shopping This Month

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Morgan Wooten To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

Morgan Wooten

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.
