Party games have been around for a long time. Games like Uno, Connect Four and Monopoly are fun and all but get boring after a while, and if you pull up to a college party with those games not a lot of people would play. If you're looking for something new to bring to the table, you're in luck, because this young and hip college student knows what games people go crazy over.
1. "Super Smash Bros Ultimate"
If you own or know somebody with a Nintendo Switch console, there's a high chance that they own "Super Smash Bros. Ultimate." I know I do. "Super Smash Bros Ultimate" is not only the perfect game to play with your friends, but it makes a great party game. With over 70 characters and stages to choose from and the eight-player smash game mode, you can be sure to have one hell of a time. It's also a perfect way to make new friends as well. Who doesn't want to play as their favorite Nintendo character and beat the crap out of people?
2. "Cards Against Humanity"
"Cards Against Humanity" isn't the type of game you want to play with your parents unless you have parents like mine, but that's a different story for a different article. "Cards Against Humanity" is one of those games you play to have a couple of laughs with people. You can't go wrong with making different combinations with cards to create funny sentences or situations. The best part about this card game is that there are expansion packs available for the game so the deck that you use always stays fresh and new and you won't get the same boring cards over and over again.
3. "Cyanide and Happiness Joking Hazard"
To put it short and simple, Joking Hazard is just like "Cards Against Humanity" but with pictures. Very, very... questionable images. Don't get me wrong, the game is just as fun, maybe even better. I would NEVER play this with my parents at all though. If you want a perfect "college game," this is your game right here. Sit back, relax and let the laughs and gasps flow throughout the room.
4. "Mario Kart 8"
Like I said with "Smash Ultimate," If you ask someone with a Nintendo Switch what games do they have this is another popular title that will pop up. Mario Kart games have been a party staple for many years now, and with "Mario Kart 8" it's no different. Racing against your friends is more exciting than ever. There's something about this game that is just so addicting to play at parties. Just be careful though, this game has a reputation for destroying friendships.
5. "Super Mario Party"
This party game I'm suggesting is literally made for parties. It even says so in the title. "Super Mario Party" is filled with over 50 mini-games that you can play with your friends and fellow party goers. I've been to a couple parties this year and every single time I went there were always people playing it.
6. "Just Dance 2019"
If you've been going to parties and haven't seen anybody play any of the Just Dance series, you've been going to the wrong parties. Over 100 hit popular songs including classics, dancing with your friends, overall having a good time and enjoying yourself, you can't go wrong with that. Plus it's a good way to get some exercise.
I hope that you take these games into consideration the next time you go to a party. Who knows, maybe you'll be the king of the party after you whip one of these games out. I'm serious about "Joking Hazard" though. DON'T play it with your parents. Or do, whatever, it's your funeral.
