Let’s keep it real! A real fun card game is the fuel for an entire week of work ahead of us. Card games are our ways to break the (mostly) boring everyday routine.
Planning a game night is more like planning a break from, well, everything.
Got the drinks, got the friends/folks/family, but got no idea about the cards, right? A fun, exciting, easy to learn card game would be pretty convenient, right Charlie?
Well, we went through each adult card game, one by one through our extensive research and reviewed them to finally select the best ones for you.
The best ones for a good time with friends, family, your partner only (winky face), and yes, DRINKING.
Adulting is slightly easier with a fun adult card game, right? Right?!

If you think that it is a Disney edition and it is kid friendly, you’re wrong. It is 17+ because it is all about Disney, but a dirty, funnier version. The high number of cards make it very suitable for large groups of people, hence the laughter and the noise to be louder.

This is not an official edition, so if you’re wondering check out Who makes Cards Against Disney and Where to buy Them?
17. Drawing Without Dignity

It has an expansion pack, and a family edition if you feel like playing with your family too. Add the fun, why not.
18. Bad People
Bad People has 290 cards which are designed to be played by 3-10 players.
This one is most suitable to play with people which you’re comfortable with. You will get to see how the other players see you, and so will they.

You better choose them right. Besides knowing more about one another, you will go home feeling more connected to one another. As cheesy as it sounds, it is true.
We’re all bad people at some point. Make fun of it with the Bad People card game, which by the way has expansions you can add to it.
19. F*ck The Game
F*ck The Game has 64 cards, a small number compared to other games, but surprisingly enough this one is suitable for 2-8 players.
This one requires your brain to function a lot more than most adult card games. Despite the fact that it is simple to play, F*ck The Game will make you say F*ck I’m not as vigilant as I thought I am.
Making a mistake will lead to laughter, and perhaps a little bit of mocking (the funny kind), hence the fun of the game keeps growing with your mistakes and laughters.
20. The Voting Game
The Voting Game is made of 260 cards designed to be played by 5-10 players. I absolutely had to share a warning from the manufacturer:
“Warning: Not recommended for accountants and other people without a personality”
Out of those 260 cards, 160 of them are question cards which you will answer, and which will most probably lead to sharing interesting stories, and discussing interesting topics;
Meaning it’ll lead to fun AND good conversations. Not all the adult card games can do this.
21. CoolCats & AssHats
This party game has 425 cards, and it is suitable for 4-20 players.
This game is for everyone; This will adjust to every type of adult people. Its humor is not as vulgar as you’re used to seeing in other adult card games, yet it is one of the funniest ones.
The larger the group of people to play it, the louder the noise; be careful of the complaints from the neighbours.
If you want to get louder, you can get the expansion for this game.
Quickwits has 150 cards, 3-10 is the recommended number of players for this game.
It turns dirty pretty QUICK. Whether you want to play it with friends, or family (the adult members!), it’ll be a blast.
Plus, the small number of cards makes it very easy to travel with. You can take it wherever you wish, it won’t take too much place.
What are you waiting for? Join the party.
23. Charty Party
Charty Party includes 294 cards which are recommended to be played by 3 or more players.
If you don’t know much of charts and want to be confident about it, Charty Party!! The cards are hilarious, the game is absolutely easy to understand.
It is fun for family gatherings (without kids under 17), friends gatherings, or any type of gathering really if you want to make it fun.
It’ll get loud, and you will love it.
24. Freedom of Speech
Freedom of Speech has 400 cards, which can be played by more than 4 players.
This is the game in which you get to explain everything about the word on your card, but you can’t say the word itself. All this with the pressure of time, because there’s an electronic timer which should be added to the game (it comes with the game, you don’t have to purchase it elsewhere).
It is absolutely fun to play with people you feel comfortable with to talk about very adult things in a funny way.
25. Disturbed Friends
The game ‘that should be banned’ has 380 cards, it is suitable for up to 10 players.

26. Personally Incorrect
Personally Incorrect has 390 cards that are meant to be played by 5-10 players.
Want a wilder and dirtier game than Cards Against Humanity?

27. Our Moments
Our Moments is a game of 100 cards, and it is designed to be played by couples; meaning 2 players.
Having a partner is fun and all, but then the everyday life hits you both and all of a sudden you stop paying attention to the details you did in the beginning of the relationship.
This card game will remind you of those little details that lit up the spark between you two. Will lead to deep conversations, and perhaps something extra later on…
28. Talk Flirt Dare
Cards; suitable for 2-4 players
Whether you’re married, or just started the relationship, this game will do the work. You can choose from the piles, you can also play with another couple. Do the talking, the flirting, and the daring.
A mild warning: It’ll spice things up, in a good meaning.
