Diwali 2019 is just a couple of days away! The festival is marked by lights, sweets, snacks, exchanging gifts, good vibes and lots of laughs and happy vibes! Celebrations in India are incomplete without uncles breaking into a dance on his favourite 70s number while aunties join them soon after. Besides peppy songs, plenty of drinks and games make rounds of the revelry until you literary go bonkers. Playing cards have been a long-followed tradition many families observe year after year. However, taash is majorly played by adults, not to forget burning a deep hole in their pockets. Expanding the scope of participation to all age groups and not involving currencies, we have seven games you can play to jazz up your gatherings! Why should you miss out on all the fun?

1. Buzzkill

If you have watched episodes of ZEE5 show Not Just Supper Stars, you would know what a ‘Buzzkill’ is. The rules are simple: one person asks the questions while others have to answer. However, it involves negative marking. Also, the participants shall blow a horn (or a whistle) and have to name the person who they think might not know the answer and put him in a spot. If the person whose name has been taken gives the correct reply, the one who took his name gets a negative point. But if he gives the wrong answer, the negative point goes to him/her.

2. Under 5

Under 5 really tests your spontaneity while also ensuring it cracks your friends up! A question will be asked to a person and he/she has to give three answers for the same, all in under five seconds. Think you can beat the clock? Take the challenge now!

3. Never Have I Ever

Yes, we know it is a common game at almost every party. But it hasn’t stopped being fun, so here we are…Speak a statement, and the participants have to reveal whether they have done it or not. Add the zing of drinks if you like, and we bet a burst of crazy laughter is set to follow your party.

4. UNO

UNO is the best game there can be to involve people of all age groups. The rule is pretty plain: get rid of all your cards using colours and numbers. When you are left with the last one, yell ‘UNO’ and announce it. The one who finishes first is the winner.

5. Ad-Charades

May the best actor win! As the name suggests, the game involves acting out advertisement taglines. Basically, a fun twist to regular charades game.

6. Taboo

We have seen celebrities play this game several times on chat shows. One person has to hold up a card while others give him/her clues to guess what’s written on it correctly. Look up Ellen DeGeneres’ ‘Heads Up’ for inspiration.

7. Twenty Questions

Topics for this game are off any limits, it can literally be anything. Divide the players into teams. Give your opponent a word and the teammates get to ask him/her 20 questions only to guess it. The person can answer these questions in ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ only.
