As social morality began to loosen (what many call a decline) the big rage among adults was the adult party games. One of the first ones was “Bottoms Up” but it didn’t end there. Today, there are more adult party games than you can shake a stick at. But what exactly IS an adult party game? Well, for those of you who have been living in a cave for the past 30 years, we’re going to give a brief overview of the various types of adult party games that you’re likely to find.
The first adult party games were probably the most dangerous because they involved drinking. Lots of it. One of the early adult drinking games was “Bottoms Up”. The premise of the game was basically pretty simple. You went around the board by roll of the dice and did whatever each square told you to do. If you landed on a Bottoms Up square then you took the shot glass off the square and drank whatever was in it. The variety of drinks people used for the game were numerous. Those who were not so daring would use wine or even soft drinks. But there were some pretty hard core drinkers in these games and it was very easy to get very drunk, very fast. The knock offs of Bottoms Up came fast and furious, all focusing on the theme of drinking.
But drinking games were not the only adult party games. From drinking we moved on to sex. There were about as many titles of adult sex games as their were drinking games by the time the adult party game craze got into full swing. One of the most popular adult sex games today is “Monogamy”. It was actually voted adult game of the year once. The game itself is a board game where the couple moves around the board and follows the instructions on the cards that are turned over whenever a square is landed on that indicates to pick a card. There are cards for him and her. There are also fantasy cards.
The game is a mixture of conversation and activities. Some of the activities are relatively tame while others can be quite steamy, depending on what level you play. Since the game is only for 2 people, it is usually played between husbands and wives or at least a couple who are together. The board itself is very colorful and the “track” on the board is shaped in the form of a circle or wheel. There really is no winner or loser in this game, as with most adult party games. It’s simply getting down to the object, whatever that may be for each person.
While “Monogamy” is for 2 people, there are many adult party games involving sexual activity that are for groups of people where you could end up with just about anyone in the game, even if they are the same gender. Some adult party games get pretty wild.
If you are new to this sort of thing, you may want to start slow by getting Monogamy and playing at the lowest level, then working your way up. It’s a great way to get your feet wet, among other things, in the world of adult party games.
