23 Games Invented by Jimmy Fallon You Should Definitely Play at Home

15. Three-Word Stories

If Benedict Cumberbatch is any indication, a byproduct of playing Three-Word Stories is coming off as completely adorable. Much like Word Sneak, you’re going to need two stacks of random words. Then, you’ll take turns starting stories with three words and trying to lead your competitor to say, in the next three words, the secret word.

16. 5-Second Summaries

Calling all movie buffs! You’re going to need a healthy knowledge of movie trivia to play 5-Second Summaries. And, well, it’s pretty much exactly like it sounds — you’ve got five seconds to describe the movie listed on the card you are given in a way that will get your teammate to guess it.

17. Face-Stuffing Contest

While this may not sound much unlike a regular holiday dinner, there’s a special twist to this face-stuffing. You are only allowed to eat the food in front of you with the, um, utensils provided. Spaghetti with whisks? Sure thing. Fully loaded nachos with tongs? You betcha. After watching Glenn Close go all in for a round of this, we’ve never loved her more.

18. Random Object Football Toss

We’re not generally ones for wasting food, so we recommend if you play Random Object Football Toss with food that you grab those questionable leftovers that have been in your fridge for two weeks. Other than that, any objects are fair game to toss.

19. Karate Piñata

Unless you’ve got some high-tech, spinning contraption hooked up, your piñatas probably won’t be spinning around you. Although we suppose you could tie them to an outdoor fan. But you can still don a bandanna and play Karate Piñata — you’ll just have to play several rounds to see who inflicts the most damage on the plethora of piñatas you’ll undoubtedly go through.

20. Face Balls

Go forth and get yourself a whole bunch of clear plastic beach balls, because you’re going to be tossing them at your friends’ faces soon enough. In addition to an excellent throwing arm, you’re going to need a friend with a steady hand to act as your videographer. How else are you going to capture the way your buddy’s cheeks flap when the ball bounces off their face?

21. Lip Sync Battle

This is about as easy as it gets — you just need a killer playlist and an absurd accuracy with obscure song lyrics. Our personal favorite? This Lip Sync Battle with Paul Rudd.

22. Total Iceholes

This is basically cornhole, but the beanbags are shaped like fish. Fallon’s played it with Miley Cyrus, Drew Barrymore, Serena Williams and more. Who doesn’t love a game of cornhole?

23. True Confessions

Last but not least, a game wherein being a great liar totally pays off. Basically, each player take turns confessing to a random fact and the other players interrogate each other to determine who was telling the truth.
