1 – Name the favorites
Find some blank cards and write down a list of favorites (What is his/her favorite car, color, dress code, food, drink, town etc.). Each card should have a duplicate (so each pair gets the same set of questions at a time). Make sure that you leave a blank space in front of each question to write down the answer. Since this game is for best friends, you can include some personal and weird questions too (if they are comfortable with it). Place them in two different places and ask them to fill out the blanks. Award 5 points for each correct answer. Read the answers a loud for more fun!
2 – The ultimate guessing challenge
This is among the trickiest best friend challenges and only the closest friends can succeed this. Find small cards of pieces of papers; write down an introduction about a special person on each card (eg. The least favorite actor, most favorite teacher, first crush, the person who made you cry etc.) and put them in a box. Name the partners as ‘A’ and ‘B’ and space them. Partner A should pick one card and write down the answer on it silently. Then partner A should start to describe the person to partner B (height, the way they walk, the accent, hair color and pretty much everything) without mentioning the name. Partner B should guess the person’s name and their specialty.
3 – Guess the preference
Have some pictures ready in advance. Every picture should come with an alternative (eg. A martini and a Vodka, A blonde and a brunette, a Porsche and a Ferrari, a cat and a dog etc). Partner A should have a look at each pair (one at a time) and say what would partner B will prefer out of two options (eg. Not the Vodka but the martini). Switch the sides and repeat it. This best friend challenge will test and see how well you know your so called “best” friend.

This is another activity that demands preparing lists. Ask friend ‘A’ to create a list of their least favorite things of friend ‘B’ (eg. Who is his or her least favorite actress). Once finished, take his list and read the questions for friend ‘B’ (but don’t show the answers wrote by friend ‘A’). Let friend ‘B’ writes down the same questions. Then he or she should write down his or her honest answers for those questions. At the end of the challenge, compare the two lists. This challenge reveals how much you know about your best friend.
