A hot tub can be the centerpiece of a backyard party. When your family members or friends want to soak in relaxation and therapy, you can conduct games in order to make the most of the stay. If you are having a hard time coming up with ideas, this article will provide you with the most fun and appropriate hot tub games for parties and families.
Best Hot Tub Games For Parties And Families
Here are the best games that you can do with your family or friends while enjoying the hot tub.
Who doesn’t know about charades? It is such a classic game and very convenient to play. Just divide at least into 2 groups. You can set a scoring system wherein the team who reaches the designated number of points wins.
- 21 Questions
“21 Questions” is usually played as a car game but it can very much work while in the hot tub. This game can be played either in teams or in pairs. It begins with the participant thinking of a word, depending on what the initial agreements are.
Then, the rest will ask at most 21 yes-or-no questions, wherein each succeeding question must lead to the right answer. The fewer questions it will take to arrive at the right answer, the better chances of winning.
- Who Am I?
The game “Who Am I?” has a similar pattern to 21 Questions. However, instead of the participant thinking of the word, the moderator or the opposing party will choose the word and write it down on a sticker or a board.
This sticker or board is placed on top of the participant’s forehead and he/she will guess what the word is. The guessing will start by asking generic questions to the teammates, which are answered only with yes and no. The fastest one to guess the word wins.
- Card Games
Card games are very much playable while you are enjoying the hot tub, as long as the cards are waterproof. You can play any card game that can be played on bars. Card games that are usually played for gambling like Blackjack and Poker might be inconvenient to play.
- Cold Shower
In this game, the balloon will be passed around. As it is passed on to the next participant, the previous one will add a certain amount of cold water. After pouring, the balloon will be held for 5 seconds before passing it to the next participant. The cold water will keep on accumulating until it will burst onto the unlucky one.
This game will utilize 2 plastic cups. One cup is filled with water until the entirety is submerged in the tub’s water. The other cup is used to fill the submerged cup with more water until it tips over. The participants will take turns in pouring the amount of water. If one pours enough to have the submerged cup tip over, then he/she is the loser.
- Water Ping Pong
There’s a mini waterproof ping pong table available. You can play the game as long as there are two of you in the hot tub. Don’t worry, ping pong balls float and so you won’t be bothered fetching them every dead ball.
- Hot Tub Pong
You can very much play beer pong while in the hot tub. In case you don’t know the classic drinking game, 2 teams will have a cup each filled with liquor. If the opposing team manages to shoot a ping pong ball inside the cup, the cup holder team will drink the liquor inside. However, be careful not to spill the beverage on the water inside the operating hot tub.
You can elevate the competition of the games by adding hilarious consequences for the losing team. Although the hot tub may not be an ideal place to play games, it helps in utilizing the idle time well for bond and enjoyment. Make sure to value safety first while having fun with your friends and family.
