Contests and riddles for the New Year for adults

Imagine the situation: a group of adults gathered in one room to celebrate an event. And everything seems to be going as it should - the food is delicious, the drinks are flowing like water, the music is calling to start dancing, but then there is a moment of satiety - the stomachs are full, everyone is a little tired of dancing, and conversations are no longer so active. Familiar? This happens at every party where people meet with different interests and hobbies.

How to rectify the situation or, even better, to prevent the appearance of boredom at the festival? The answer is simple - make more variety!

Adults are the same children who want entertainment. In the company there can be both old friends, and absolutely unfamiliar people. It can be women, girls, boys and men. Everyone may have completely different views on recreation and entertainment, but even the most disparate company can be united with contests and riddles, especially for the New Year 2019!

The most funny and fun contests for adults


Draw an elephant (donkey, horse, Cheburashka)

We will need:

  • 2 sheets of paper attached to a wall, blackboard, easel, or whatever you want to draw on them.
  • 2 markers.
  • Dressing for the eyes by the number of participants.

How to conduct:

Divide all participants into 2 equal teams (the more people the better), each of which is lined up in front of her piece of paper. Choose the creature you want to draw. Each participant gets a certain part of the body and blindfolded. Then, in turn, the members of each team blindly draw the body parts they have got. The winner can be determined by speed or by the similarity of the pattern on a given animal.

Stomp the enemy's balls!

We will need:

  • Balloons of two different colors by the number of participants.
  • The same number of long threads of medium thickness.

How to conduct:

Participants are divided into 2 teams with the same number of people. Each team is given balls of its own color on the string, which must be tied to the foot. The thread can be any length, but the ball must necessarily lie on the floor. The teams are mixed and the task of each is to trample as many balls of an enemy color as possible, without letting your own one burst. The participant, who has not saved his ball, leaves the general heap and waits for the end of the battle.The team that wins the opponents faster wins.



We will need:

  • Sheets of paper by the number of participants.
  • Pens in the same amount.

How to conduct:

Participants can be any number, everyone sits in a circle, each is given a pen and a sheet. The presenter asks the question "Who?", Each writes his own character. After that, you need to bend the sheet so that the writing is not visible, and transfer it to the player on the right (each one transmits his own sheet and receives another one from the neighbor on the left). The facilitator asks a new question, for example, “Where did you go?”, And again everyone writes, bends the written part and transfers it to the next. Further questions may follow: “Why did he go there?”, “Who met?” And so on. The competition continues until the presenter runs out of questions.

At the end there should be a collective reading of the resulting stories and a vote for the best! There are no winners in the competition, but fun and laughter are provided!


Competition is perfect for any conditions, because there is no need for props. All that is needed is the participants and their imagination.

How to conduct:

Everyone sits in a circle. He starts either the hero of the occasion (if there is one), or the one who draws lots (determined by the reader).The first person utters two completely unrelated words, such as "dinner" and "car." The second should make such a sentence so that both words fit in one situation: “I was late for a family dinner, because the car would not start”. The same participant should come up with another word that has nothing to do with what was said: let's say, “loaf”. The next one should add this word to the current situation, for example, like this: “So that the wife is not upset, I decided on the way to buy her a loaf.” And so on until there is enough imagination or until someone comes up with a logical conclusion to the whole story.

Bottle 2.0

We will need:

  • Empty bottle.
  • Harvested papers with actions written on them for the participants. The bigger, the better.

How to conduct:

This game is very similar to a standard bottle: the participants sit in a circle, put the bottle in the center and spin it up. The key difference lies in the fact that you need to throw twisted pieces of paper with certain actions, for example: “kiss on the cheek”, “invite for a slow dance”, “lick ear” and the like into an empty bottle. As a result, the game looks like this: the participant turns the bottle, the person to whom she pointed, pulls out one piece of paper and read out the action. It must be performed by the first participant.This is more interesting than a regular game, because you never know what you need to do instead of the standard kiss.
