Three social games that will light up the party

  1. Ever head of “Bend A Friend”? This is one of the funniest party games to be invented! How it’s played? Simply place an empty cereal bows with the flaps removed in the center of a room and remove anything that could be breakable to avoid seven years of bad luck or an injury if someone topples over. Now, each party guest needs to come over to the box in order, bend over and pick the cereal box up only using his or her teeth. Yes you read that right. It is permitted for one feet to touch the floor and only teeth are allowed to touch the box with no other body part being used as support. You can bend over in any you want. Next round cut a small part off the top of the cereal box and begin again! With every round cut some more of the cereal box. A player is out when he falls over or cannot reach the cereal box. Last player standing gets the standing ovation!

2. “I Like Cherries” is a funny game where you get to ask your guests if they like cherries. Once you get enough people gathered around place a fresh cherry in a bowl on the stem right in front of them. Then you start explaining them that this will be a race to eating the cherry, the one who eats it first wins! There is only one small rule, they are not allowed to use their hands. Everyone will say this is the easiest game around, right? Then you start filling each bowl with whipped cream. Who’s laughing now? Well, everybody because the fun just started. The first person to find and eat the cherry in their respective bowl wins. So, ladies and gentleman, prepare your smartphone cameras and begin! You can use any other small fruit such as a strawberry instead of the cherry if you don’t have any around.

3. “Two Truths And A Lie” is an interesting game where each person needs to write two truths and a lie about themselves on a piece of paper. Once the writing is done each person folds the piece of paper and puts it in a bowl. The host of the party then pulls out a piece of paper at a time, randomly, and reads the writing to the whole group. The group must then work together and guest Both the lie from the three lines and the person who wrote it. Try figuring out the person who wrote the paper first and enjoy!

Are you bored? So was I but then Spider Solitaire online happened

Ever had one of those days when it’s raining outside and you have nothing to do? You know when everything seems boring, time passes like it’s inches away from a black hole from a faraway galaxy (very, very, very slow!) and you desperately need something to pass you time. When not even scrolling through Facebook or watching kitties riding skateboards works anymore and there’s nothing on TV (does anybody watch TV anymore?).

Exactly how was I feeling..

I had one of those days last Sunday when was pouring outside and nothing entertained me anymore. I did agreed to have a movie night out with a group of friends but it was only lunch time and evening time was so far away! I started counting the leafs on one of my flowers my mom sent me when I realized that it couldn’t go on like that. So what did I do? I went back to the place where anyone is looking for everything nowadays and put my hopes in the magic of the internet. After I googled stuff to do when you are bored a great deal of options were displayed in front of my eyes but guess what, they all seemed boring haha! Until I went a few pages down the search results and I saw something related to playing card games. Then I remember that when I was little my grandpa used to play a cards game which I was very excited about but didn’t understand anything of it. That game is now best known due to its inclusion in the first versions of Microsoft Windows.

Yes you guessed it, I am referring to Solitaire.

Isn’t this one of the most satisfying game ending screens ever?

So I started looking for a place where I could play free Spider Solitaire online (I played Spider Solitaire a few years back and I remembered I prefer this variant to simple Solitaire) on my tablet and guess what, there were tons of search results. Before I knew I was actually doing something (looking for a website to play online Solitaire haha) and time just flew!  And I was happy about it because I had finally found something to do.

Little did I knew that you can easily find a website to play online Solitaire but how easy can you find a good online Solitaire website? I was about to find out! It is actually pretty hard because even though the offer is big almost all sites are stuffed with advertisements, annoying pop-ups and whatever you can think of to slow your game down and lose your focus from the game. Then I decided to go straight forward to it and simply search for Spider Solitaire UK and the result was a neat, simple but game oriented website with NO advertisement what so ever and nine variants of Spider Solitaire available. I must confess that after about three minutes into playing Spider Solitaire Arkadium it felt like hitting the jackpot! It’s that hard to find a good online Solitaire website.

Are you worried that you don’t know how to play the game? That you don’t know the rules? Well this small but easy to use website also states the rules for the games so you won’t get lost in the pack of cards.

So after a few games and different tryouts of other variants of the game (Red Spider Solitaire is now my favorite) I casually looked at the time only to find that in two minutes I’ll be late at the meeting with my friends. I totally forgot out the movie night out by then and all I wanted to do was stay in and play a bit more of Spider Solitaire haha. In the end I took a grown woman decision and started putting on my makeup and get myself out because you never know when you’ll meet your prince charming.

Needless to say that in that particular night out it was to the case and I did not find my soul mate but at least the movie was good and I had fun. So what did I got after a boring Sunday? Well now I know what to do when I’m bored, go back to my roots and play an enjoyable cards game just as my grandpa used to do but with a little difference now – I don’t need to actually shuffle the cards anymore.
