I love a good girls’ night in. Especially when there is wine and good food involved. They say that laughter is the best medicine – and that holds true when the girls break out the irresistible new party game YeahNOPE (by Wonder Forge).
I’m pretty confident that I know my friends well. I’ve got a beat on how they react to certain situations. I know what wine they prefer and how they take their coffee. I could predict with some degree of accuracy, whether they are string bikini or tankini types. But YeahNOPE takes “knowing your friends” to an entirely new level.

Go ahead and start planning now… as you are reading this post. You only need 3-8 players, so grab your best girlfriend’s for a night of food, drinks, and hilarity. Available exclusively at Target, YeahNOPE is a tell-all game that forces players to guess what happened and how! The game starts with questions like “Have you told off a boss?” or “Made out with someone in a closet?” Players then work together to build on the story and speculate using situation cards until the moment the truth is revealed with a Yeah or NOPE swipe of the oh-so-enticing gold sequined box. Great as a coffee table accessory when it’s not in play, but the fun really takes off when your girlfriends are over!
Getting to know the YeahNOPE game:
YeahNOPE is a combination of so many popular free-form informal party games like Truth or Dare and Three Questions and a Lie. But it’s a little more organized and takes a lot of the guesswork away. With just a little structure and situational suggestions, YeahNOPE is a great game that quickly reveals the juiciest stories. Laughter and hilarity are a side effect. We all know that this is a time-tested recipe for memorable get-togethers.
This is also the sort of sharing that encourages closer and stronger friendships.
We are big fans of “adult” style games in our house. One of the fun benefits of having older/adult kids and many neighbors that are friends is that we entertain and host a lot of game nights. Getting everyone to put down their phones and converse is so much easier when you crack open a good game. Games that make us laugh, and shock us a little, are our faves.
Paired with wine, cheese, and good friends, you are pretty much guaranteed a successful gathering.
How to play YeahNOPE:
Game Play revolves around a bet. The player who is “It” pulls an experience card and reads it aloud. The player who is “It” needs to read the Experience Card in as deadpan a fashion as possible, giving away nothing. This is the time to exercise your poker face.
All the other players must guess and bet whether the person who is “It” has actually had that experience. Experiences range from awkward, to naughty, to embarrassing, to semi traumatic to somewhat trivial. Some Experience card examples include:
- “I’ve been stung by a Jellyfish”
- “I’ve forgotten my lines”
- “I’ve dumped someone via text”
- “I’ve told someone they tasted good”
The guessers only score a point if the person who is “It” cops to the experience and says “Yeah”. It is their goal to find a way to make that statement be true! This is where the situation tiles come into play.
YeahNOPE is all about context, and stories:
Have you ever read a fortune cookie and added on the expression “in bed” to the end? You know how that changes everything! The situation tiles have that same effect. Some example situation tiles include:
- “While Drunk”
- “On Vacation”
- “Due to Peer Pressure”
- “And Lied About It”
The guessers must agree on the situation tile most likely to make the statement true for the player who is “It”. The player who is “It” must answer truthfully. If the answer is “Yeah” then the guessing continues. More situations are tested. If the answer is Nope, the player who is “It” gets a point and the next player takes a turn in the hot seat.
No players get left out – everyone is a part of the YeahNOPE Game
YeahNOPE gives everyone the chance to be the center of attention when it is their turn to be “It”. Players must collaborate and crowdsource their answers. In order to choose a situation, they must share their knowledge and impressions of the individual who is “it”. What situation would make that experience fit, based on their knowledge of the person?
Hearing the justifications for their guesses is half the fun! This is particularly true when you play with people who have known each other from different times/places and for different lengths of time.
YeahNOPE is the perfect game for a lively holiday mixer and it makes a perfect hostess gift or gift for a friend. The sequined box is so fun and lovely that you can leave it out on the coffee table. It’s a conversation piece in and of itself. Whether you are playing the game to win or just playing using the cards to start a lively conversation, you are sure to uncover some great stories about your friends.
Should you play YeahNOPE with Grandma? That’s up to you!
Just be warned that you may not want to play it with your grandma, and you definitely don’t want to play this game with younger children. Unless you are fine with them finding out what you did that time on spring break. That’s your call!
You should probably proceed with some caution when playing YeahNOPEwith coworkers and exes too! You could bluff, but that would defeat the purpose. This game really only works when the players are truthful.
