No matter what your feelings about the current political climate, the 4th of July is the perfect time to focus on how far the nation has come since the signing of the Declaration of Independence in 1776. Today, every citizen over the age of 18 has the right to vote, women have the right to choose (for now), and LGBTQ individuals folks all across the country can choose to marry and live happily ever after (again, for now.) And no celebration is complete without some 4th of July games for adults.
This 4th of July, you might be tempted to throw a fabulous backyard BBQ or pool party, and you need to entertain your guests. And one way to have fun is with adult-themed games that turn your backyard into party central. You already know the essential elements that make your party the bash of the year, such as delicious food, desserts, and drinks. But having a good party game can make things all that much more fun.
From a Hamilton-themed game of musical chairs to a red, white, and blue version of cornhole, here are nine 4th of July party games made just for adults. (Sorry kids — you can't have all the fun.)
