Let's Play | Best Dinner Party Games

Soon we will be welcoming guests back inside our houses, so let's perhaps refresh your hosting skills?


You've found the chef on #cheflyapp, decided on your menu and confirmed the guest list. Now, you can focus on the fun. 🎲


Nothing beats a night of friendly competition, so we've put together a few of our favourite dinner party games that will surely liven things up.


1. Two Truths and a Lie

Requires a drink and a good imagination.


The first person will tell two truths and one lie about themselves. The next person will try to guess which is the lie. If the second player guesses the correct answer, the first player has to drink. If the second player guesses wrong, he or she has to drink.


Now the second player will tell two truths and one lie to the next person in line. Go around the table.


2. Categories

Requires fun group of people


Each member attendee gets to pick a category, and then players take it in turns to name something that fits into that category working through the alphabet. For example, if someone says Cuisines, going around the table would go something like - Chines, Italian... until someone fails to think of one.


3. Who Am I?

Requires Post-it notes & pen


Write the name of a famous person on each Post-It Note and stick one note to each guest’s back or forehead.


Guests will go around the table and speak to each other as if they are the famous person whose name appears on their sticky note. For example, if your Post-it said “Gordon Ramsay” another guest might make say, “'London's rudest chef'.” In order to win this guessing game, you have to correctly guess the name written.


4. Ask Me About

Requires Post-it notes & pen


This could be a great opener or used during canapes or nibble (also booked through #chefly). Write name cards that read “ask me about” and insert a bow. These can be as funny or as serious as you like and can be passed around. Depending on whom you are hosting, this can be very silly or more serious. For example: “my hobbies,” or “my most embarrassing memory”.


5. Think Alike

Requires lots of Post-It notes and plenty of pens


Guests will go around the table to take turns asking questions. Everyone writes their answer to the Post-Its. The aim is to try and match your answer to other people in the group. When you get the same answer as another person, you win a point, and the person with the most points at the end wins. Questions can be anything - the more obscure, the better!

Have you played any of these? If so, which is your favourite? We would love to hear from you! Don't forget to download Chefly App to find a chef around your location for your party - available on Google Play and App Store!
