55+ Fun Games To Play With 3 People

You’ve probably noticed that not all games are possible to play with only three players. However, there are still several indoor games as well as outdoor games that you can play when you have a couple of friends over. 

I’ve tried to find as many varied games for you to choose from including board games, card games, scary games, and even some drinking games as well.

Fun Games To Play With 3 People

Wit’s End

Witt’s End is a mind game where players progress around a multi-level gameboard by answering questions from four different categories.

A player who correctly answers a question and reaches the center of the game board (the Wit’s End logo) wins the game.Wit's End Board Game - Ages 16 to Adult

How To Play Wit’s End:

Roll the die and move your playing pawn in either direction (left or right) based on the number rolled.

Next, draw a card and answer a question from an appropriate category (land on a Teaser square and choose a question from the Teaser category).

Roll again if you land on a dice square. Once you answer a question correctly, roll again to carry on – you may switch directions (left or right) on your current level after each roll.

Play continues until you get a question wrong, at which point the next person takes the turn.

You can only move up a level if you land on a square directly below one of the arrows. Slide your piece up to the next level, then roll again to continue along your new level if you answered correctly.

If your answer is incorrect, stay where you are and your turn is over. When you reach the top level square (with the Wit’s End logo), draw a card – no rolling is required. Select one of the four categories from which you will answer the question before viewing the card.

You win the game if you answer correctly. Incorrect answers result in the playing pawn slipping back down to the purple level, ending your turn.

Ages: 16+

Players: 2-6 players/teams

Giantville Tumbling Timber

Play the classic game of Wooden Blocks in life-size. A favorite game just got a big makeover from Giantville! Giant Tumbling Timber Toy - Jumbo JR. Wooden Blocks Floor Game for Kids and Adults, 56 Pieces, Premium Pine Wood, Carry Bag - Grows from 2-feet to Over 4-feet While Playing, Life Size Yard Tower Game

How To Play Giantville Tumbling Timber:

You can play the game however you want. Modify the rules and make them your own. Using the 20 numbered blocks, you can come up with your own bonus rules or drinking games for adults. 

Each number can be associated with a rule, such as go again, reverse direction, or skip player, so that when a numbered block is pulled, the player will follow the rule associated with that number.

 You can adjust the rules to suit the game for adults or children. 

Using a scorecard, keep track of your points every round. Keep playing as long as you like.

Rack -O

There are 60 cards in a Racko deck, each numbered from 1 to 60. 

To play with two players, only use cards 1 to 40. 

Three players should use 1 to 50, while four players should use 1 to 60. 

The goal is to be the first to arrange all of your cards in your rack from lowest to highest.Winning Moves RACK-O, Retro package Card Game

How To Play Rack-O:

Let each player reveal one card from the deck. Whoever has the lowest card deals first. 

Each player gets ten cards.

Players must place their cards in their rack from back to front as they are dealt.

Create a draw pile by placing the remainder of the deck face down in the center of the table. 

Create the discard pile by flipping the top card over and placing it beside the draw pile. 

The game begins to the left of the dealer. Players pick a card from either the draw pile or the discard pile. 

You must discard a card from your rack when you take a card from the discard pile, and then you can place the new card in that slot. 

When you draw a card from the draw pile, you can discard either the drawn card or a card from your rack. 

You may not rearrange the cards in your rack when exchanging a card. Only the card being exchanged may be removed, and the drawn card must go into that spot.

The discard pile can be turned over to make a new draw pile if the draw pile runs out of cards.

The round ends when the first player in the game rearranges his cards from lowest to highest. 

This procedure awards 5 points for each card in order of lowest to highest, plus 25 points for going out (going Rack-O), for a total of 75 points for the player who goes out first. 

The first player to reach 500 points wins.

Ages: 8+

How To Play Beat That:

The game pieces should be organized in the playing area before starting the game. 

Shuffle the challenge cards and give each player ten betting tokens. 

Put the challenge card deck in the center of the group. You are ready to play! 

Choose a player who will be the first to draw a challenge card to begin the game. 

The chosen player will draw a challenge card and read it aloud to the group. 

Members of the group will then place a betting token, with the amount determined by their ability to complete the task at hand. 

Upon reaching ten rounds, the game ends, and the points are tallied. 

A winner is determined at the end of those ten rounds based on the number of points accumulated.

Best 3 Player Board Games

I’ve included some of the most classic board games as well as some new favorites that you can play with a couple of friends.

Calico

Quilts and cats make up the puzzly tile-laying game Calico. Players must try to make the coziest quilt by collecting and placing different patches of colors and patterns.

Alderac Entertainment Group (AEG) Calico , Orange

How To Play Calico:

Pick a patch tile out of your hand and sew it into your quilt; next, choose another patch from the three available to you. 

If you can create a color group, you can sew a button onto your quilt. 

The cat will come over to you and curl up on your quilt if you can create a pattern combination that is attractive to it! 

You receive points for the buttons, cats, and how well you completed your quilt pattern at the end of the game.

Off-Topic

Playable in as quick as 30 minutes, quick-paced, simple rules and short games make this the best game for people with short attention spans.

Off Topic Adult Party Game - Fun Board and Card Game for Group Game Night

How To Play Off-Topic:

Draw a card to set the topics, and roll a die to determine the letter to begin your responses with. 

Write down the answers for each topic that begins with the letter rolled as you race against time.

You gain a point for each unique answer. After the comparing and scoring are done, the players erase the board and begin another round. 

Whoever scores the most points at the end of five rounds wins.

Redneck Life

Redneck is a classic dice game. The game is a roll and move game, but its strengths are its simplicity rather than gameplay.

Redneck Life - A Hilarious Board Game, Easy to Learn Party Game - Board Games for Adults & Teens - 2-6 Players by Gut Bustin' Games

How To Play Redneck Life:

Play involves rolling the dice, adding the values, and moving the pawn the number of spaces thrown. 

Some of the spaces contain text that triggers events. 

The other spaces, which are the most common ones, will cause you to resolve a Gone Redneck’n card. 

Some cards are Redneck Revenge cards that allow you to take down your opponent. 

As a result of accidents and brawls, players lose teeth during the game. 

Consider buying some back because the player with the most teeth at the end of the game wins!

Shut The Box

To win the game, you need to lower or close as many number tiles as you can in your turn.

Juegoal Shut The Box Wooden Board Dice Game with 12 Numbers and Lid for Kids Adults Families, 2 Players and Up

How To Play Shut The Box:

At the beginning of a round, all tiles are upright. 

Players roll two dice and add the results. 

They then lower the equivalent number of tiles. For example, if the player rolls 9, they can drop any tile that matches the number 9 ( 9, 8 and 1, 7 and 2, etc.) 

The player continues to roll as long as there are equal numbers of tiles to lower. 

The turn ends when no more tiles can be lowered. 

Scores are based on the number of tiles left up. 

As soon as a player’s score is recorded, all tiles are put in the up position for the next player. 

A player who scores 45 points or more is eliminated from the game. 

The winner is determined by the last player remaining.

Catan 

Catan, a classic civilization-building game, is also a very popular three-player game. Catan is a strategy game where players must harvest and trade resources.

Catan combines the elements of chance and skill on a hexagonally-shaped board, and I recommend it for people over 10 years old; and is the perfect game for teens and adults.

The game might seem a little confusing at first, but it is a lot of fun and easy to get addicted to.

Catan Board Game (Base Game) | Family Board Game | Board Game for Adults and Family | Adventure Board Game | Ages 10+ | for 3 to 4 Players | Average Playtime 60 Minutes | Made by Catan Studio

How To Play Catan:

Start by rolling the dice. With each roll, you get a chance to collect resources. You want to collect resources like brick, wool, lumber, grain, and ore. 

Once you have the right combination of resources, you can use them to build settlements or upgrade them to cities.

Everyone starts with two settlements and two roads, which equals two victory points.

The first person to get to 10 victory points wins.

Ages: 10+

Players: 3-4

Playtime: 60 minutes

Ticket to Ride

Compete against other players as you race through New York City’s busy streets to explore the most famous tourist attractions and complete your destination tickets to score the most points.

How To Play Ticket To Ride:

The youngest player takes the first turn. 

Players continue in a clockwise direction until the game ends. 

Each player must choose one (but only one) of the following three actions:

  1. Draw Transportation cards
  2. Claim a Route
  3. Draw Destination Ticket cards

The player with the highest score wins the game.

Sequence

Sequence is one of our favorite board games and a perfect three-player game.

Playing sequence is a mixture of strategy and luck.

Suitable for younger children but challenging enough for adults.

You can play with as few as two players or form teams and play up to 12 players.

SEQUENCE- Original SEQUENCE Game with Folding Board, Cards and Chips by Jax ( Packaging may Vary ) White, 10.3" x 8.1" x 2.31"

Voices in My Head

In Voices In My Head, you step inside a courtroom and into a man’s head as he stands trial for robbing a bank. 

In this multiplayer game, one person takes on the role of the prosecutor, who is trying to convict the accused and sentence him to prison.

All other players take on aspects of Guy Johnson’s personality, such as Honesty or Selfishness, and try to influence the trial. 

Each player must reach their hidden goal to win the game.

Voices in My Head Board Game Narrative Adventure Game Strategy Game for Adults and Teens Ages 12+ 3-6 Players Average Playtime 1-2 Hours Made by Unexpected Games UG02 Various

How To Play Voices In My Head:

The prosecutor presents evidence, calls witnesses, or grills Guy on the stand in each round.

These actions will influence the jury in different ways and ultimately determine whether Guy remains free or is sent to prison.

Ages: 12+

Players: 3-6

Time: 1-2 hours

Three-Player Chess

Chess has traditionally been a two-player game. 

A third player is now involved in the struggle, which changes the dynamics in an exciting way.

Husaria Wooden Three-Player Chess - 11 Inches - with Foldable Board, Handcrafted Playing Pieces, and Felt-Lined Storage

How To Play Three Player Chess:

As in classical chess, the movement of pieces is the same. 

Players compete against each other clockwise. 

Red goes first, then play proceeds clockwise with white followed by black.

When moving pieces, use their normal movement relative to the adjacent spaces.

When you move a piece through the center rosette, movement changes significantly.

Watch this video for clear gameplay rules:

There are three game-ending variations you can play with. You should agree on which you will play before beginning. 

Option 1: The game continues until one player is checkmated. Then the other player who delivered the checkmate is the winner.

Option 2: After the first king is captured, that player is eliminated from the game, and the game continues. The player who delivered the checkmate receives the bonus ability to use the eliminated player’s pieces until only one player remains.

Option 3: When a player is checkmated, that player is eliminated from the game, but all their pieces remain on the board. These pieces do not move. They cannot check a king, and you may not pass a piece through them. 

If you wish to occupy a space with an eliminated player’s piece on it, then you must capture that piece.

The game then continues until only one player remains.

Cover Your Assets is a game where you must become the first player to reach $1,000,000 and win! 

Cover Your Assets | from The Creators of Cover Your Kingdom, Grandpa Beck's Games | Easy to Learn and Outrageously Fun for Kids, Teens, & Adults Alike | 2-6 Players Ages 7+

How To Play Cover Your Assets:

The game begins with the player on the dealer’s left. The player can do one of four actions each turn.

You can make a pair with a discard card as a second option. Third, you can steal assets from another player. The last option is to discard and draw.

Skull King

Skull King is a fun party game where you attempt to predict how many tricks you are likely to win each round. A perfect blend of classic strategy and trick-taking gameplay. 

Skull King - The Ultimate Pirate Trick Taking Game | from The Creators of Cover Your Assets & Cover Your Kingdom | 2-8 Players 8+

How To Play Skull King:

The game has ten rounds, with each player receiving as many cards as the number of rounds in the game.

The players simultaneously bid on how many tricks they think they will take by placing out a fist and then showing several fingers (or a closed fist if they want to bid zero tricks) on the count of three.

Players play cards according to standard rules, with one player leading off with a card and others following suit if possible or playing something else if not. One could, however, always choose to play a special, unnumbered card – and the power of those cards might be enough to let you win a trick you couldn’t win otherwise. 

For every trick a player collects exactly, they score 20 points; if they collect more or fewer tricks, they lose 10 points.

If a player bids zero tricks, they win ten times the current round number. However, if they take even a single trick, they lose the same number of points.

Bonus points are awarded if the player catches pirates with the Skull King or the King with a mermaid.

The player with the most points after ten rounds wins.

Ages: 8+

Scary Games To Play With 3 People

Ghosts In The Graveyard

This game is played in any outdoor area with three or more friends. It is especially fun when played in the dark at night. The goal of the game is to find the “ghost.” 

How To Play Ghosts In The Graveyard:

Choose a base that all players will run to when the ghost is found. 

A player is chosen as IT or the ghost. That player runs and hides within the neighborhood boundaries set before the start of the game. 

All players close their eyes and count down from 50. The game begins when everyone yells, “ready or not, here we come.” 

Everyone runs in search of the ghost. The player who discovers the ghost’s hiding spot shouts out “Ghost in the Graveyard” as loudly as they can. 

That player is safe. The other players run back and touch base. While returning to base, the ghost chases players and must tag one of them, who becomes the ghost for the next round. 

If everyone returns to base before the ghost tags anyone, he becomes IT again. Start a new round by repeating the same steps with the new or the same IT. 

Touch and Tell

Scare your friends by touching objects they can’t see and make them guess what it is. 

How To Play Touch & Tell:

Find objects for you and your friends to touch in the dark. You must guess what each thing is. Find something gross to feel. Naming them after body parts can make it even creepier. Cold spaghetti can be used for guts, just as grapes work for eyes. Use your imagination. As long as you’re creative, anything will do.

Ouija

Playing Ouija games with your friends, whether they are real or not, is definitely a spooky way to spend the night. Just remember to take precautions and be careful. 

Hasbro Gaming Ouija Board Game

How To Play Ouija:

You need an ouija board. Place all your hands on the piece that points to the numbers and letters in the middle of the board. You are now ready to ask questions.

Scary Stories

One of the classic slumber party games is telling scary stories.

How To Play Scary Stories:

The Thumb Game

This paranormal game is based on an old Japanese legend, where a maniacal serial killer murdered and dismembered a Japanese woman. The police managed to locate all but one body part: her left thumb.

In this imagination game, you must try to find the thumb to be granted a wish.

Sit in a circle with your friends with a candle in the middle. Each of you grasps the person’s left thumb sitting to your right. 

Close your eyes and imagine that you’re in the villa where the woman was murdered. 

Everyone must then repeat a chant that will transport you back to where the murder occurred.

Say the following sentences twice.

” Oyayubi , Oyayubi , hear our voices “

” Oyayubi , Oyayubi , grant our wish “

 Take a look around the room to see if you can find the Japanese girl’s missing thumb. 

Hold onto your friend’s thumb, or else it will immediately be taken to the spirit world. 

If you feel a bony finger tapping on your shoulder, you should not turn around. 

You have to find the missing thumb before the candle burns out.

If you don’t find it, simply blow out the candle and get transported back home.
