27 Incredibly Simple Party Games That Are Fun At Any Age

    The family that plays together stays together. Here's some entertainment for your next gathering.

    Look, sometimes you run out of things to talk about with your friends/family/significant other, and that's okay! It doesn't mean you're not enjoying each other's company, just that you've covered everything you might want to tell them.

    But never fear! Party games can bring the life back into any gathering, be it a house party or Thanksgiving dinner. Here's a list of great ones you can play any time:

    1. Change ONE letter of a movie title and get people to guess it by describing the plot.

    For example, you might change Beauty and the Beast to Beauty and the Feast, and make up a new plot about a beautiful woman who runs a catering company and has to plan the biggest meal of her career.

    Adding or subtracting a letter from the title also works, just as long as it's still only one letter. Example: Star Warts instead of Star Wars

    Variation: Use video games, TV shows, or books instead of movies.
