4. WTF Did You Say

Unlike any other card game you've ever played before, this one is going to drop you in laughter heaven. Presenting an unbelievably crass, fun and outright outrageous card game for your next Diwali party. The WTF Did You Say Playing Cards is a huge set of 594 cards out of which 108 are Red Rule Cards with 486 White Cards. The rules go something like this; the Reader of Cards or ROC draws and reads a red card out loud. Each player (other than the reader) then passes their funniest white card face down to the ROC. Once all white cards are received the ROC reads each white card out loud in the context of the red card. The ROC decides which card they believe to be the funniest and gives the red card to the player that played that card. The circle continues in a similar manner & the player with the maximum red cards at the end of the game wins!

6. F**k The Game

How many times do you swear while you're playing a game with your buddies? What if we tell you that there is a game where you get to use you favourite cuss words while playing the game and have the greatest laugh about it. Sounds so cool, yeah? F**k the game, is the most fun social card game that is sure to make your head spin if you don't train it to follow the rules. The rules to this Aussie swearing game are pretty simple. The rule card is included but don't you worry, we'll introduce you to the mighty rules right now. So, if you draw a card with black text, you have to say the background color. If the card has colored text, say the name of the color of the text. If the card says a swear word, then say the swear word aloud. Regardless of the color or background or text color. Lastly, if the card says Fuck, go to the first 2 rules but never say Fuck. Sounds complicated? Believe us it's pretty simple. The game starts with the deck equally distributed among the players, and the winner is the one who loses all his cards first. Just remember to place your card face up when you draw it.

Those were some very awesome card games to try out this Diwali. And since we're all in the festive jovial mood, we shall share with you a bonus game which could be your Diwali party superstar! 
Presenting...*drumrolls* the Drunken Tower Jenga with Shot Glasses.

Drunken Tower Jenga With Shot Glasses

This one is the ultimate game to have the best party night ever! The Drunken Tower Jenga Game is the secret to a hilarious adult party that simultaneously gauges your dexterity and sobriety. Drunken towers are the skillset of steady hands, but what is served is endless laughs with Jenga, looking doable (which it so is not). This game has a wild twist! It is proven to be an extreme challenge even when sober, so wait until you're a couple of shots down. Play by the rules or create your very own. It can be played between 2 to 4 players. The setup works like this: One player builds the tower on a flat sturdy surface. Place three blocks on each layer, at right angles to the previous layer. All blocks with instructions are placed face down. You’ll have a 20 storeyed building when finished. The last player to take a turn without making the tower fall or the last player still standing wins the game. Now, that looks easy, but you and your peeps will probably end up passing out.
