A Limerick-Writing Game

Irish Party Games - Write the Best Limerick!

Here is a fun game with many possible variations.  The core idea is: write the funniest limerick poem. 

You can play the game in teams (our favorite) or you can play the game individually (raffle-style) by handing in your answers.

Both versions involve an answer-card containing sample limericks with important words left out. 

The trick is to fill in your own words to produce the funniest, most creative, most memorable limericks. 

The winner(s) get a prize (with an Irish theme of course).

And if you have had that experience, like us, you probably recall at least a moment of confusion (or maybe a whole evening of it).

In this fun Irish party game, you match Irish slang words with their meanings. 

The individual or team who makes the most correct matches wins the game and gets a prize!
