When you have your friends over for the night, you should play some games for sleepovers. Even if you have plenty to gossip about, there's nothing wrong with throwing a party game into the mix. Some of them will help you get to know each other better, but others are just meant for the fun of it. Here are some of the best games for sleepovers that you should try the next time you're with your girls:
1. Who Am I?
If you've seen the latest season of Sherlock, you already know all about this game. You write down a bunch of celebrity names on slips of paper, and randomly distribute them to your friends. They hold the paper up in front of them, without peeking at it, and have to ask everyone questions in order to find out who they are. It's one of the best games for sleepovers, because it guarantees laughter.
2. Innovative Ingredients
Divide your friends into two groups, and give them a set of ingredients. Once they have their random items, tell them to make the best dessert that they can out of them. At the end, you should all get a taste in order to determine who the winner is. Just don't be biased!
3. Dress up
Break out the make-up, but keep the mirrors on the wall. In this game, you should ask everyone to apply their lipstick and eye liner without looking at their reflection. It's more difficult than you'd imagine. The winner is whoever did the best job, and gets the privilege of keeping the poster, if it's not too messy.
4. Fun Facts
If you have a large group, then you can each write something surprising about yourself on a piece of paper, and then put it in a hat. Take turns picking out a paper, and guessing who wrote what. It's fun, but it will also teach you something new about your closest pals.
5. Kiss the Cutie
This one's a bit like Pin the Tail on the Donkey. Get a photo of a celebrity that you all love, put on some lipstick, close your eyes, and see who is able to kiss him closest to his lips. There's no need to feel silly, because everyone will have a turn. Besides, haven't you always wanted to make-out with Zac Efron? The game will get you all laughing, if nothing else.
6. Two Truths and a Lie
This is another game that will get you to know your friends better. You come up with three 'facts' about yourself, except one of them is a complete lie. After stating them, your friends have to guess which of them is the lie. Make sure that the answer isn't obvious. The game is the most fun when it's difficult for your friends to figure out the truth.
7. Talent Show
You don't get to show off your skills often enough. If you're a good writer, then bring a copy of your latest story. If you're a musician, then bring your guitar along to play for everyone. Your friends already know you're great, but you can still show them your talent with pride.
There's nothing better than a night with your girls. Make it memorable by playing some of these games. Can you remember the best sleepover you've ever been to? What made it so exciting?
