21st Birthday Party Games


Playing Twenty One

We think that this is a fitting game for anybody throwing a 21st birthday party. The goal of this (Blackjack) game is to get a hand higher than the dealer's but without going over 21.

You can use a typical card deck or special themed ones if that will make this game more interesting for your guests (we found some sexy card deck from if that’s more to your taste).

Eat A Birthday Cake

This is a variation of the popular game Musical Chairs. However, instead of chairs and music, what will happen is that two slices of birthday cake will get passed around.

Once the music stops, whoever has the cake need to guzzle them down. The person who finishes last is out of the game. Before game resumes, new slices of cake are made available, the music starts, and the passing of cake starts all over again.

If you don't mind getting a wee bit drunk, you can replace the birthday cakes with bottles of beers instead since now that you and your friends have reached 21, you're definitely allowed to drink something with more zing!

Scavenging in 21

This is a great scavenger hunt game, a cool addition to any 21st birthday celebration. The goal of the game is to get as much phone numbers of cute girls/boys within 21 minutes. A photo must be taken so as to certify cuteness, which will be validated by the birthday girl or boy.

The group with the most phone numbers of certified cuties will be the winning group. To make the game extra challenging, you can add some disqualifiers like the birthday celebrant must not know the girl or boy for the "entry" to be considered valid.

Truth or Dare?

This will play like the typical truth or dare game, with the birthday girl/boy asking the questions or daring a player to do something. You can choose to call each on a counter-clockwise fashion or just spin a bottle to see who will take the next truth or dare challenge.

No winners, but we bet you will know your friends better after the party and that is definitely priceless!
