There are tons of things to do at parties. Many people drink and play beer pong. Others watch movies. In some cases, people might want to play some video games. There aren’t a ton of options. However, there is a small selection of Android games that are good for parties. Here are the best party games for Android.
Price: Free to play
Crossy Road is a family-friendly runner with a variety of multiplayer modes. Players progress forward and avoid things like water, traffic, and other obstacles. The point is to make it as far as possible without being crushed or falling into the water. Everyone needs their own device for the local multiplayer mode. However, other than that, it’s a fun and goofy little game. It is a free to play game. However, most of the in-app purchases are for character skins that don’t affect actual game play.
Price: Free to play
Cards Against Humanity is one of the best party games ever. Sadly, it’s not available on Android. Evil Apples is a decent replacement. It features a similar mechanic to CAH. A player plays a purple topic card. The other players play white answer cards that most comically answers the purple card. The game boasts over 3,500 white answer cards, 800 topic cards, and a bunch of multiplayer options. It also includes wildcards where players can write their own. The in-app purchases consist mostly of expansion packs that permanently add options to your white cards. It’s not bad for what it is, but we do recommend the actual Cards Against Humanity game if you can get it, even if it’s a physical card game.
Price: $1.99 with in-app purchases
Exploding Kittens is another party game with cards. This one is a little easier to play. Players draw cards until the Exploding Kitten card shows up. The players must then deal with that. Last person standing wins. This has both a physical and digital copy. Both make great party games. It supports up to five players. You can also purchase optional DLC for more cards. It’s not necessarily kid friendly, but it’s definitely not something for mature audiences only like Evil Apples.
NBA Jam is one of the best sports arcade games out there. It’s also one of the better party games. Players compete in two-on-two basketball. The rules are relatively relaxed with short games, local multiplayer options, and Android TV support. It’s not great for a large crowd playing all at once. However, it’s not difficult to set up a small tournament with people taking turns. It’s a bit of a stretch. We just really like this game and all the various types of local multiplayer that it supports.
Price: Free / Up to $3.99
Spaceteam is a mobile game version of hot potato with some Simon Says elements. The game has up to eight simultaneous players. Each player has the same game on screen. They must respond to the game’s demands as a group. Failure to do so ends the game. It’s playable on both Android and iOS. Thus, the platform wars don’t apply to this game. It’s a bunch of fun, especially after a few drinks.
