I really enjoy fun campfire games, ESPECIALLY when we are all out drinking alcohol, however there’s no need for any alcohol consuming when you try out these games I’m about to show you.
Even though there is no alcohol involved, you can still have as equal amount of fun as if you were drinking. We don’t always play these games but when we do, we have hours of fun and the time just flies by. Before we know it, it is actually 12 a.m.
If you are looking for some fun games to play the next time your out by the campfire with friends and family then I suggest you keep reading.
Truth Or Dare..BE CAREFUL
I was very hesitant about playing this game, especially when you have close friends playing too. But after a while you start to get use to it and it actually gets better and better the more you play.
When you get more people involved it can get so much more fun.
Basically you go around in a circle, you ask someone a question and if they don’t want to answer because it is too embarrassing, they can swap it for a dare.
But they HAVE to do the dare. If not then they lose.
I would only recommend this game for adults only.
This one is really fun and can get everyone involved. Everyone will be given some stickers (small, circular shaped so they look like mosquito bites). Throughout the night you can sneakily place them on peoples backs, arms, legs, wherever you can without them seeing you.
If you get caught, you will have to keep your sticker and the person that caught you is allowed to put a sticker on you.
At the end of the night, the person with the most mosquito bites on them is the loser.
I would recommend that you choose something that the losing player will have to do, such as a dare, BEFORE you start the game, and everyone will have to agree on it first.
I absolutely love this game. First, everyone has to act like a dead fish. The aim is to be the best dead fish!
One person is the ‘tagger’, who has to watch for anyone laughing or moving. If the ‘tagger’ spots someone that isn’t acting like a dead fish, he/she will tag that person.
When some of the dead fish get “OUT”, they have to try make the other dead fish get out as well by distracting them. That is where most of the fun begins.
Name That Tune
This is a good one and highly recommended if you have a bit of a musician with you. Any instrument will work. Basically the musician will have to play a tune and everyone else has to try figure out what he/she is playing.
First one to choose the correct song is the winner.
If you don’t have a musician, a basic tune on an Ipod will still do the trick.
This game is typically known as telephone and best played with a lot of people.
Basically, you all sit around the campfire.
Someone will start the game and whisper a phrase into the next persons ear. That person will continue that phrase to the next person, so on and so forth.
The entertainment begins when the circle has completely finished, when the last person calls out the phrase again. You will literally get an entire different phrase from what you started off with. It’s interesting to see how much it changes.
The person that starts off the game is the one that can choose any phrase. It can also be a message if he/she wants it to be.
Toast a marshmallow only until its crust is toasted, pull the crust off, eat it if you prefer not to waste it. See how many times you can repeat this cycle until there is nothing left.
The record is 12 times, but after a little more practice I’m sure somebody can beat that!
This one can work amazingly well and extremely fun if played correctly.
Everyone lies down around the campfire, preferably on something so you don’t get dirty. Try and spot flashing lights, bigger-than-average stars, maybe a UFO is out there flying around too.
I enjoy playing this game when there’s not many trees around and it’s a completely clear night sky. So many things can be seen when the sky is clear and I love it.
Just because you don’t have electronics with you, that does NOT mean camping is going to be boring. There are literally thousands of games you can play that will be fun for hours, but you have to use your imagination.
Camping is for bonding with friends and family while enjoying the blissfulness that Mother Nature has to offer. You are not there to go on your phone to surf Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
Sure, there’s nothing wrong with letting your family and friends know you are having fun while uploading a picture or 2 but that is it. And that is also only possible if you are near a public campsite that offers free WiFi.
Anyway, I hope you get the message loud and clear. If you liked these campfire games then I know you’ll enjoy these outdoor camping activities!
