- Name that chick flick – this fun game uses quotes from some of the most popular chick flicks of all time. The person to get the most correct in the fastest time wins!
- 90s trivia game – this 90s trivia game will have you all reminiscing and taking a trip down memory lane when Lisa Frank was everything and the only responsibility you had was keeping your Tamagotchi alive. Sigh, those were the days…
- 2000s trivia game – back when Paris and Nicole were still best friends, this game is sure to get you laughing about some of the crazy things that happened in the first decade of this century.
