and family movie nights this stay home period! Thankfully, there’s a whole bunch of adult card games available that will assure a great time of fun with your family. Some of these games require you to strategise quite a bit if you intend to win, so they will definitely keep you and your family entertained. Read on for a quick introduction to our selection of the best adult card games available!
1. The Singaporean Dream: The New Normal
Are you a true-blue Singaporean? If you are, then consider getting The Singaporean Dream: The New Normal (available on IN-BOX)! It’s one of the best adult card games that parodies Singaporean culture. You and your family will play as one of many stereotypical Singaporean personalities like an Aunty or Ah Beng and will have to gain or steal dreams from other players in each turn. The player with the most dreams wins! Have foreign friends coming over? Make sure you keep this popular card game around to introduce Singaporean culture to them.
2. Off Track!
Loved the local charm of Singaporean Dream? As a follow up to one of the best adult card games in Singapore, Off Track! (available on IN-BOX) is the latest SGAG project that you must check out if you love tongue-in-cheek humour. Strategy is key here as players are divided into teams of MRT passengers and take turns trying to reach their destinations, all while throwing others off and disrupting their progress. The best part is that players’ true identities are only revealed at the end, allowing for plenty of chances for collaboration (or espionage). Check out how to play below!
3. Unstable Unicorns
Unicorns are your friends now. Unstable Unicorns (available on Receesoon Fashion) is an adult card game that pits players against each other in a rat race to collect seven unicorns to win. If this doesn’t sound like a challenge to you, wait till your family starts sabotaging your every move. With each round, players get to invite a new unicorn into their stable or sabotage other players! Admittedly, this card game does have a bit of a learning curve as players have to be aware of how each card relates to another. However, once you get the hang of it, you’ll enjoy hours of strategically building your unicorn army.
4. Exploding Kittens
If you’re expecting cute little kitties in this popular card game to play with friends, think again. Exploding Kittens (available on Toy Station Official Store) is a simple adult card game that mostly requires players to draw cards with each round. But unlike most card games, you DON’T want to draw your cards — because once you draw the infamous Exploding Kitten, you LOSE! Like a ticking time bomb, you and your family will be using certain action cards to shift the chance of drawing the Exploding Kitten to the next player. It’s also a great card game if you don’t like to think too much during your turn.
5. Joking Hazard
Are you a fan of the online webcomic Cyanide & Happiness? Then you’ll definitely LOVE Joking Hazard (available on Simple – Game)! It’s an adult card game to play with friends that’s inspired by the popular webcomic and features a variety of comic panels that you can piece together with other players. In each turn, players will get to complete a series of comic panels with a card in their hand. Much like Cards Against Humanity (available on Simple – Game), one player will act as a judge for that turn and will decide which other player’s suggestion is the most inappropriate. The winning player will get all the cards in the comic series at the end of the round. The player with the most cards wins the game!
This is an adult card game that’s been around for a while. Saboteur (available on Mytoyshop.com.sg) is a card game that’s heavily dependent on cooperation and mind reading. Players take on the role of dwarfs who’re searching the mines for gold nuggets. Each player will take turns to piece together a path that will eventually lead them to their prize. But of course, it’s never that easy! Among the players, there lies one or more saboteurs — depending on how many people are playing. These saboteurs, whose identity is unknown to the rest, will do whatever they can to ensure that the dwarfs never reach their goal. It’s also one of the best card games to play with friends for its replayability as the cards offer an endless number of combinations to form your mining path!
7. What Do You Meme?
This is truly one of the best adult card games to play with friends for those who spend too much time on social media! What Do You Meme? (available on Toy Station Official Store) is an adult card game where players have to pair up a meme image with a funny caption. A judge for the round will then decide which caption is the funniest and the winner will get to keep the cards. The player with the most cards wins the game!
8. Sushi Go!
Sushi Go! (available on Toy Station Official Store) is a culinary-themed adult card game that’s popular for its simple to learn, hard to master gameplay. Players deal cards in each round to form as many types of sushi as they can. At the end of the round, they will add up their score based on the number of successful ingredient pairings. It’s a pretty simple card game that can even be played between two players — a perfect alternative for online couple games!
9. Fun Employed
Need a fun way to prepare for your upcoming job interview? Then spend some time playing Fun Employed (available on Fwah Singapore) with your family! It’s one of the best card games to play with friends that will stretch a player’s creativity to the limits as they improvise pitches for a fictional job. Players will take turns to be the Employer while the rest will say whatever they can to make a good impression. The Employer will then choose the winner of the round based on who they think presented the best pitch. The player with the most Job cards wins!
10. Never Have I Ever
This is probably one of the few popular card games where making poor life decisions makes you a winner. Never Have I Ever (available on Simple – Game) is an adult card game that will have players confessing to their family about some of the most embarrassing things they’ve ever done in their lives. Players get to collect cards at the end of each round if they’re guilty of the bad life decision stated on the playing card, with the fastest player getting the point. The player with the most cards on their ‘wall of shame’ wins (or loses, depending on which way you look at it)!
11. Organ Attack!
This is one of the more gruesome popular card games to play with friends hidden under the guise of cute, cartoonish organs. Organ Attack! (available on Unicorn-fashion shop.sg) is an adult card game that has players attempting to damage their opponent’s set of organs within each round of the game. Attack cards that you can use to damage your opponent’s organs are also inspired by real-life medical issues. If you can stomach it, Organ Attack! is definitely the type of card game that will send you and your family yelling at each other with every round of organ-damaging fun! [yikes] Last person standing wins!
12. The Voting Game
Want to know what others think of you? Then you MUST get The Voting Game (available on HOU-MI Store). It’s a pretty simple adult card game that has every player voting on questions in each round. Each question card asks players about their opinion of which other player is of a certain quality. Questions like ‘Who gives the most awkward hugs?’ or ‘Who would look the best as the opposite gender?’. It’s one of the best card games that will help you discover what your family thinks about you! But of course, it’s all in good fun!
13. Disturbed Friends
We just read the questions of this adult card game and some of them certainly raised a few eyebrows! Disturbed Friends (available on Toy Station Official Store) features a variety of questions that are coupled with multiple choice answers that each player can respond with. In each round, you and your family will get to vote on the answers to each question. Said defamatory questions range from what cruelties you’d commit if you were rich to crude acts you’d commit if you were invisible. Whoever provides the same answer as you will get a winning card. The first player to ten winning cards wins! So the more your answers match up with your family, the more disturbed they think you are as an individual.
14. These Cards Will Get You Drunk
If you prefer cutting to the chase, then get this drinking adult card game that will DEFINITELY get you drunk. With each round, players will draw a card and decide whether they’d prefer to do the action or drink. You can compete with your family and completely sabotage them by making them drink more with certain actions described in each card. Overall, These Cards Will Get You Drunk (available on Simple – Game) is one of the best party card games to play with friends if you’re organising a house party and want a lighthearted game to quickly break the ice.
15. Sweet Rice Mahjong Playing Cards
Worried about being a constant source of noise pollution when you’re playing mahjong? Why not use Sweet Rice Mahjong Playing Cards (available on SGPomades Mens Grooming Official Store) instead! These playing cards are considered one of the best adult card games to play with friends who are new to mahjong because they simplify the setup process. Instead of requiring mahjong tiles and a table, you can easily fit these cards in your pocket, allowing you to effortlessly get a game going. Additionally, the cards include numerals and English translations of Chinese characters to make mahjong instantly more accessible while still preserving the traditional rules of the game!

To spice things up, there are even challenge cards that hilariously involve tasks like getting tickled and sending awkward texts to random contacts!
17. Chope The Card Game
If you’re amused by the quirkiness that is chope-ing tables, Chope The Card Game (available on The Mind Cafe Official Store) has you covered! It’s fastest fingers first as you snap up table cards with your tissue packet and shoo mynahs away in this best adult card game that celebrates local hawker centre culture.
