But some games are more ideal for senior citizens, like Pictionary, Name That Tune, and Charades. This fun list of entertaining party games for senior citizens is one of a kind.

Name That Tune

Create a playlist of famous songs or instrumental tunes and play short snippets of each. Each player must try to guess the name of the song before the others. The winner is the person with the most correct guesses. Name That Tune is exciting because players will compete to blurt out a song’s name before someone else does. It’s a great way to improve focus and memory.


This is a great game for seniors who enjoy a challenge. It’s a sketch and word game played by individuals or teams. One player draws a picture that represents a word and tries to get the others to guess the word. The first player/team that makes a correct guess gets a point. 

Photo Scavenger Hunt

Each team or individual is given a sheet with a list of items. They must find all items and snap a photo within a set time. Once the timer stops, the player with the most pictures wins. This is a great game to get party guests moving as they compete in a friendly manner. The best thing about it is that it can be customized to fit the abilities of each player. 

Giant Jenga

Jenga is all about building, and stacking blocks to form a giant tower. At the party, set up the wooden blocks in a tower. Each player should take turns removing one block and placing it on top of the tower. The one who causes the tower to collapse loses the game. Giant Jenga can be played indoors or outdoors and improves focus, concentration, hand-eye coordination, and fine motor skills.

Memory Game

While there are many variations of this game, here is the simplest one. Write a list of items on paper slips and put them in a bowl. Each player should take a turn drawing a slip of paper and try to remember where they saw the item. Note down each correct and wrong answer. The player with the most correct guesses wins! If you want to improve your memory and concentration skills, this is a great game to play.

Balloon Pop

This is a great and fun party game for seniors because it channels your inner child. You’ll have the same amount of fun kids do when playing with balloons. To play, tell each player to blow up a balloon and tie it around their waist. The goal is to pop other players’ balloons without getting yours popped. This is a hilarious game because everyone runs around trying to pop others’ balloons. Last man standing is the winner.

Indoor Bowling

Indoor bowling is a lot like regular bowling, but you get to choose what to use for pins and balls. For pins, you can use cans, paper towel rolls, or water bottles. Use a soccer ball or a bean bag as a bowling ball. Each player takes turns bowling. The winner is the perso who knocks down all of the pins.

Guess the Price

The items used in this game can be anything, it all depends on the audience. Since seniors will be playing, pick vintage or old pieces and let them guess how much they cost many years back. Alternatively, you can play the game by arranging items on one spot and asking the players to guess the price. This game fosters memory, communication, and creativity.


Charades is a great party game for seniors. Players may be teams or individuals. They take turns acting out popular phrases, movies, or songs. The first player is chosen by drawing lots or randomly. They pick a word or phrase to act out and use gestures, facial expressions, and body movements to convey the meaning.

Simon Says

The most hilarious games are usually kids’ games, like this one. This classic game for kids is fun to play and will have you laughing and having fun as you follow Simon’s demands. The leader will give commands like “Simon says touch your toe” or “Simon says close your eyes.” Be sure to only follow commands preceded by “Simon says”. If you don’t, you’re out.  The game improves memory and attention.
