We all have a shayar inside of us, we just keep it under hiding. It’s time to let it out and make up some memorable shayaris. Just start by writing a random shayari like
Dass rupaye ki ek sawari,
Chahe halki ho ya bhari,
Dheere chalegi, nahi thukegi
Hawa lagegi pyari pyari.
Then let others try and rhyme on the same rhyme scheme. The game may sound tough but it only takes a few minutes to get in the flow, then a few more to burst into a fit of laughter. You are not likely to get great shayaris out of this endeavour but you are ensured some of the most absurd yet hilarious shayaris. This game will also let you take a look inside the brain of your friends and how they think.
6. Kiss, Marry, Kill
Most of you already know about this one. It’s a game where you make a choice and your friends judge and question your choice. These explanations are always way better than the choices. You are provided with a list of three people, you have to choose one to kiss, one to marry, and one to kill. Don’t be a party pooper and choose one option for all the three people, keep it interesting and different.
7. Never have I ever
A simple but one of the most fun games, which can easily bring out a lot of secrets in the WhatsApp group. You make a statement with never have I ever as a prefix and end it with anything which you haven’t done yet. Others will say if they have or have not done it yet. Keep your statements interesting and clever to keep the responses more shocking and hilarious.
8. The Meme game
This game is even more fun than it sounds. Everybody loves memes, so why not let them slide into your group chats as well? Try and have a whole conversation by just using memes, soon it will reach a point that each meme will just keep on making you laugh harder than the last one. An easy game with no rules, just pure joy and is a must try.
9. Gun to Your Head
An easy game just like rapid fire but with the stakes much higher and a little bit more time. The rule is simple: You have to ask your friend what they would do if they had a gun to your head. But for the clever and brave, there is another rule that you cannot attack the attacker and must answer the question.
For example: Gun to your head, Who in this chat group do you have a crush on?
10. The Weird game
This game is aptly named for how weird yet fun it is to play. This game is a questioning game with an interesting twist. All the answers are pre-selected and can be as weird as you want. Before beginning the game, you all choose a set of 4-5 to 5 random words and can only use these to answer all the questions. Keep your chosen words as weird as possible and be creative with the questions to squeeze out the complete joy from this game.
For example: Words chosen are – Snape, beer, refrigerator, and night
Question – Who do you wanna have a one-night stand with?
Answer – Snape.
