From charades to cards, if you’re bored of playing the same old thing and want some new Diwali games and fun activities this year, this list is apt for you!

Diwali is the perfect time for get-togethers and enjoying each other’s company. And this is enjoyed even more when some games and fun activities are played with the group. But this time, Diwali is so much more special since we’re able to step out after so long. So if you’re planning to have friends, cousins, or extended family over or are going to their place to celebrate and need new ideas for some fun and interesting games and activities, then this list is perfect for you!

We’ve all played cards, board games, charades, or antakshari to double the fun during festivals. And don’t get us wrong, we’re not saying that these games aren’t fun or interesting anymore like who doesn’t want to play Poker and win some cash during Diwali? But playing the same games can get a tad boring, hence it’s time to break out of the monotony and try these new games and fun activities inspired by popular films and TV shows that you could try out this Diwali!
