While I cannot remember the name to save my life right now (perhaps because the game was most-often played with a great deal of party "spirits") I seem to remember two-player drinking games. Perhaps someone can fill in the blanks. It's been a few years since I played.

Games that I consider "Party Games" that my wife and I have played:
- Scattergories
- Word on the Street
Although both are much more fun with a large group of people, or a "party" if you will...


my BFF & I play Word on the Street.
it's cutthroat and there is laughing.

we play a lot of Scrabble, too. You can up the fun quotient by having temporary house rules: on a cruise, any word relating to the cruise gets a 10pt bonus, tonight let's play food words are bonus, etc.

Of course, our geeky idea of fun is to playtest each other's prototypes.

First there was Hearts, then there was Spades, and now we bring you Clubs. The suit of clubs finally gets some respect!

Are there any games that have these other characteristics of party games, but either work well or are specifically designed for two players? Do you think such a game design is even possible?


Yes, and they are listed under "Adult" or "Couples" online. devil


Maybe I'm just old and out of touch, but I thought this game was OOP.

It has already been said several times, but Cranium Hoopla is my recommendation. It's a lot easier to laugh when both of you are on the same team.

I personally define a party game as one which doesn't work well with few players, scales up well with large numbers of players, and is easy to teach. For example, Dixit and Two Rooms and a Boom are common examples. Adding players to Dixit has much less impact than adding players to Dominion.

So to me, a two player party game doesn't exist, but there are variants of party games you can play with two people. For example, some prefer to play Bang with just Outlaw versus Sheriff. [Bang has more rules than most party games, but it's close enough.]

"What Am I Thinking?" is an improv game where 2 people think of a word(or thing, it doesn't have to be a single word), then on the count of 3 say their word. They then try to think of a word that falls exactly in between the 2 words that were said. This continues until you both say the same word. They've played it a lot on the Comedy Bang Bang podcast:

My girlfriend and I will play a bunch of times in a row. Its a lot of fun when the word you end on is completely unrelated to the words you started with. You could start with "carrot" and "the declaration of independance" and end on "blue whale." always exciting. We always play that you can't say the same word twice, but CBB does it differently.
