6 Best Knee Slappers That Will Be a Big Hit For Geeks

These knee-slappers and gut-busters are a huge hit with geeks of all stripes. Whether you like chemistry, grammar, science, or math, there's a joke for everyone on this list. Just be careful not to laugh at your own joke when you tell others about it!

1. What Did Argon Do When Copper Insulted Him? Argon had no reaction.

This chemistry joke takes a bit of knowledge to understand. Argon, a gas, is inert, which means it doesn't react with copper unless Oxygen is present. This joke makes sense and is informative!

2. Why should you never date an apostrophe? They're too possessive.

Whenever you put an apostrophe after something, it's usually followed by the letter "s" and denotes ownership. Grammar jokes are a fine art; they're used by many a grammar nerd to make fun of grammar rules. Be sure to ask your English teacher what their favorite grammar jokes are!

3. I will always be disappointed that a group of squids is not called a squad.

For the same reason, I'm disappointed that a group of possums isn't called a posse. More groups of animals and things should be named based on puns. It'd make remembering them much easier.

4. An infectious disease walks into a bar. The barman says, "We don't serve your type here." The disease replied, "Well, you're not a very good host."

Biology jokes! Or virology jokes? Combine them with "walks into a bar" jokes, and you've got a great combination. The barman might not be a great host, but he sure makes a great wingman for a joke.

5. Do you know the difference between a chemist and a plumber? Ask them to pronounce "unionized."

This one's a great word pun! A plumber will pronounce it union-ized, while a chemist will pronounce it un-ionized. Next time you meet someone in either field, ask them to pronounce the word. It'll tell you which camp they fall in.

6. Did you hear about the one who got chilled to absolute zero? He's 0K now.

Nothing can be colder than absolute zero on the Kelvin scale. In short, absolute zero is 0K - or zero Kelvin. Anyone who's studied temperature conversions in high school will get this joke immediately.

6 Funny Math Punch Lines Guaranteed to Get Everyone Thinking

Math is one of the most thinking-intensive subjects out there. Math puns, on the other hand, also make you think... but less about solving the problem and more about getting the joke. These math punchlines won't fail to get your friends' brains spinning!

7. Parallel Lines Have So Much in Common. It's a shame they'll never meet.

This one is a double whammy. Parallel lines are not only completely alike, but they'll never touch each other, no matter what... Making it the most heartbreaking love story about lines you could ever make. Hey, at least they'll never point away from each other.

8. My ex is like the square root of -1,... she's imaginary.

But does it mean your ex-girlfriend is imaginary because you've never broken up or because you didn't have a girlfriend in the first place? We'll need some serious maths to find out which is the case.

9. Why are obtuse angles so depressed? Because they're never right.

In the same vein, acute angles are usually less than right. At least they're cute! Obtuse angles, on the other hand, are just... obtuse. Which angle do you think is better?

10. What does a mathematician say when something goes wrong? Figures!

If you've ever studied math for any time, you'll be saying this word a lot because almost everyone has gotten a math problem completely wrong at times. Say it with me now: Figures!

11. You have a p-value of at least 0.05 because I can't reject you.

She must be pretty statistically significant, and that's why you can't reject her. The null hypothesis is rejected in statistics if it's below the alpha level, usually 0.05. If it's above it instead, you don't reject it.

12. What do you call a tree that is made up of numbers? A geome-tree.

If the tree is made of triangles, it's a trigonome-tree instead. What about if the tree is made of uniform shapes? It's a symme-tree. Trees and math puns go hand in hand!

5 Political Ice Breakers That Will Make You The Life of the Party

Politics can lead to heated discussions between people with different political views. But if you've got the right group, it can be a great way to liven the party and engage in thorough discussions. Why not try using some political jokes to set the mood, then? Here are some great ways to spark a debate.

13. How did we know communism was doomed from the beginning? All the red flags.

The banner of communism is flown with a red flag. Many communist countries have red flags or flags with a dominant red color. Next time you talk about communism, be prepared to spot many of them.

14. What do you call a Russian procrastinator? Putinoff.

Or is it "Putitoff?" Either way, be careful of Russian procrastinators. There's always something off about them... Probably because a lot of common Russian surnames end in -ov.

15. You must be from Pearl Harbor, 'cause baby, you're the bomb.

Is it too soon? You be the judge. This one's at least a good pickup line alongside being a joke. Just be careful not to drop the bomb around her - wouldn't want to be at war with her.

16. Pavlov is at a bar enjoying a drink. The phone rings for him, and he jumps up, shouting, "Oh no, I forgot to feed the dog!"

For those who don't know, Pavlov would ring a bell every time he fed his dogs. After some time, he noticed that ringing a bell would cause his dogs to salivate even if he didn't bring any food. Lesson: don't ring a bell when you feed your pets, or they'll start drooling everywhere.

17. No matter how popular they get, antibiotics will never go viral.

At least they're a pretty good antivirus. So, even if they'll never go viral, they'll at least keep your files (and body) safe from foreign intruders.

6 Computer Puns That Will Amuse Your Smart Friends

Every computer geek knows these jokes. These computer jokes are programmed to bring laughter to all those who've even touched a computer in the past few decades. So, tell all your computer nerd friends these jokes and see how they react!

18. CAPS LOCK - Preventing Login Since 1980.

Every type your password, get denied access multiple times and only notice later on you've got caps lock turned on? Everyone who's had a computer in the past few decades knows this pain.

19. Computers are like air conditioners: they stop working when you open Windows.

Haha, a fun little jab at the general unreliability of Windows machines. At least nowadays, computers don't crash when you open Windows... much. Just remember to close Windows properly!

20. A programmer's wife tells him, "While you're at the grocery store, buy some eggs." He never comes back.

This one takes a bit of programming knowledge. The "while" statement causes a piece of code to be repeatedly executed as long as the condition is met. So, he'll buy eggs while he's at the grocery store. He'll never leave the store as long as he's there.

21. What is the biggest lie in the entire universe? "I have read and agree to the Terms and Conditions."

Only the most conscientious people read through a lengthy Terms and Conditions page. Most of us just skim through or even skip to the end so we can get stuff done. Hey, as long as we're not doing anything wrong, no one will check if we actually read through it all!

22. What do you call a computer superhero? A Screen Saver

And it saves the day and our computers from going to sleep or shutting down on us! It truly is a computer superhero. Just be careful not to set him to hibernate accidentally.

23. What happens if you drop a computer on your feet? It hertz

The same thing happens when you drop your laptop or tablet on your feet. Imagine the weight of all that data slamming into your foot. It hertz... it really, really hertz.

6 Science Quips to Entertain Your Smartest Friends

Science is a subject for the smart, as you probably already know. That's why science jokes are often the smartest jokes people can come up with. So, if you've got some smart friends who love science, try some of these quips - they'll entertain them well!

24. I'm reading a book on anti-gravity. I can't put it down.

You can't put it back down, but you can pick it up anytime you want! Your interest in it will probably soar, too... way above the clouds. Be careful when reading in Zero-G, friends.

25. E=mc^2. Energy = milk*coffee^2. Einstein was right.

Who said physics couldn't be funny? Everyone knows Einstein's infamous equation - so why don't we turn it into my personal favorite joke? It may not be scientific, but it explains the physics of how I get my energy.

26. Hydrogen and Oxygen went on a date. I heard they really bonded.

I hear they really bonded over being at the waterpark. There were even two Hydrogens there to bond with! The Hydrogen twins and Oxygen bonded so well that they turned from a gas into a liquid.

27. He threw a sodium chloride at me! That's a salt!

He threw his fists at me! It was a NaCl sandwich! Be careful when dealing with ruffians who throw salt at you... you never know when it's table salt or rock salt. One will hurt much more than the other.

28. A neutron walks into a bar and asks the bartender how much a drink costs. "For you, no charge."

Guess who had to pay in the neutron's stead? I'll give you a hint: It's not the electron. Poor proton. He always has to pay while the neutron doesn't, and the bartender even pays the electron!

29. Geology rocks, but geography's where it's at.

Oooh, a double whammy. The punchline is exactly how it's worded: geology is all about the components of the earth, or rocks, while geography is the study of the earth's layout. Them sounding similar sells it.

Does Humor Help in Making You Smarter?

A question many people ask is if humor makes you smarter. Even if the comedy isn't designed with an intelligent audience in mind, or the humor is low-brow and simple, humor can contribute to increasing intelligence. You see, practicing humor still uses the brain - and creating good humor takes brainpower to connect the dots.

Humor is all about associations, and making them can improve your brainpower. Creating a pun, for example, causes you to think hard about a word and phonetic associations to make the pun land. Jokes without puns take concepts and try to marry them together to create a sensible but funny joke.

So, humor can help make you smarter, not just for making jokes but also for learning to associate between concepts.

Frequently Asked Questions

After reading this list, you should have plenty of funny nerd jokes to use on your friends. From jokes that are surprisingly clever to simple and classic jokes, you'll have enough jokes to last you a night of fun and then some. If you have some more questions about nerd jokes and what they're about, I've answered some frequently asked questions for you that hopefully shed more light on the subject.

Do smart people like jokes?

You might be led to believe that because smart people are more intelligent, they're above sillier things like jokes. But the truth is, even smart people can appreciate dumb humor. So, don't worry about the size of their brain - there's a joke out there that will resonate with their sense of humor.

When is the ideal time to throw a punch line?

Once you've hooked someone with the build-up, give it a few moments to build the suspense... and once they're at the height of interest, that's the time to deliver your punchline smoothly. Don't just throw punchlines directly after the lead-up; you've got to make sure they're paying attention; otherwise, the joke can fall flat.

Do nerdy puns make me seem smart?

Nerdy puns take a little bit of intelligence to understand and making them takes even more. Making a really good nerd pun can make you seem like a smarter person because of that. So, if you want to appear smarter than you look, bring out a really clever pun that will get them saying, "So true!"

What if they don't understand the joke?

Everyone's had to live with the shame of explaining a joke to someone. It can't be all bad, though. Sometimes, you just need to clarify what you mean. Even if it takes a while, they'll appreciate it regardless as long as they get the joke.

Ultimate List of Hilarious Quotes

Some people are naturally funny, even without trying. They are loved by many, and they are always the life of the party. Some funny people rely on their impersonations, puns, and even their charm to be humorous. Needless to say, being funny is an advantage that not all people have.

However, if you think your life is lacking in terms of humor and laughter, think again. Just because it doesn't come naturally to you doesn't mean you can't give people a good laugh. I get that cracking a joke isn't as simple as it sounds. That's where our short funny quotes can help you out.

We have listed some of the best hilarious quotes we can find to show you that you can also be the life of the party by being a joker. These will help you build rapport with the people around you and keep them entertained with your one-liners. They will also help eliminate awkwardness, especially when meeting people for the first time.

Let's dive right into the best hilarious quotes we've got on this list.

4 Funny Motivational Sayings For Friends

Your friends are the backbone of your motivation to wake up in the morning and push through each day's challenges. Not all of us have the luxury of seeing our friends often. Constantly making plans to see each other turns into months or years of cancellations and emergencies. However, once you meet up, it's like no time has passed.

You will fall back into normal routines and inside jokes that you won't even remember how much time you spent apart. For your next friends' hangout, we have many quotes you can say to them to remind them how much you care for them.

1. "It's the friends you can call up at 4 a.m. that matter.'' -Marlene Dietrich

You can share a lot of personal information with a friend, but the most embarrassing ones usually come out in the wee hours of the morning. When you find yourself in a bind, you would most likely call your most trusted friend no matter what time it is. When you say this, I bet your friend will remember a bonding moment you might have shared way back.

2. "Most of us don't need a psychiatric therapist as much as a friend to be silly with." -Robert Brault

Everyone has a unique set of problems that not everybody else will understand. When life hands you your load, it's not impossible to feel down and defeated. However, when you find a friend you can laugh with, you will find a little bit of comfort and happiness that no therapist can ever provide. Your friends will most likely feel touched and lucky when you say this inspirational quote to them.

3. "Lots of people want to ride with you in the limo, but what you want is someone who will take the bus with you when the limo breaks down." -Oprah Winfrey

The greatest thing about having true friends is that they stick with you through good and bad times. They won't mind if you don't have a lot of money or if you are going through problems in your life. What matters to them is your company and loyalty to them. People may be nice to you only when you are on top. However, you can weed out your real friends when you're at the bottom.

4. "A good friend will help you move. But best friend will help you move a dead body." - Jim Hayes

This is a funny quote that you can say when you want to share an embarrassing or intense moment your friend helped you in the past. Not everyone's perfect, and we all have some skeletons in our closets that we'd rather not share with the world. When you have someone willing to help you, no questions asked, keep that person in your life forever.

4 Funny Sayings About Family

You can say a lot of good things about your family. But I bet you can also say many bad things about them. When it comes to family, anything is fair game as long as it's said with love. From digs about house chores to the worst dad jokes you've ever heard, these hilarious quotes about family will make you roar with laughter.

5. "As a child, my family's menu consisted of two choices: take it or leave it." -Buddy Hackett

Most middle-class households have a rule that you can't be picky with your food. Either you eat what's on the table, or you don't eat at all. It's actually a good rule to practice because it teaches everyone to be respectful towards the people who prepared the food. It will also teach you to be humble and grateful for the blessings you receive.

6. "If you cannot get rid of the family skeleton, you may as well make it dance." -George Bernard Shaw

All families have their secrets that they dare not share with anyone. They wouldn't even want to talk about it during gatherings. However, these kinds of secrets often create unnecessary tension and distance between the members of the family. It's better to make light of it when you're all together instead of letting it ruin your relationships.

7. "The reason I love kids so much is because they're so honest, so you know right away if they like you or they don't." -Colin Egglesfield

This is hilariously true. Because kids are so honest, they won't waste a minute hiding how they feel towards you. When you share this quote with your family, you can also talk about a time you remember a kid from your family who wasn't shy about expressing their disdain for a new person they met. Tell stories and make fun of the honesty that children have.

8. "I was normal two kids ago." -Unknown

Marriage is something that can make your world turn around. But having kids? It will change your entire being. It's even more daunting for a woman because she has to put herself through so much to grow a person inside her body. Most parents will say that having kids means you will never get a good night's sleep ever again, but it is the most rewarding thing they have ever done.

3 Laughworthy Messages About Work That Make You Hassle More

Sometimes, what stands between you and a successful day at work is just one hearty motivational quote. I know it must be frustrating to go through work struggles, toxic work environments, and manipulative bosses, but it's a sad reality that most of us have to experience. It doesn't even matter what field you're in.

If you're in customer service, the food service industry, or basically any kind of field, you're in for a world of hassle. Fortunately, we have some funny work quotes that can get you through the day.

9. "I choose a lazy person to do a hard job because a lazy person will find an easy way to do it." - Bill Gates

I saw a quote on social media once that said you should work smarter, not harder. I believe that is also fitting for the workplace. If you've got a boss who likes to micromanage, they will most likely dictate what method you should do to accomplish your tasks. But, if you have the freedom to decide, you should most likely do the easiest way for you. After all, who would want all that difficulty?

10. ''The brain is a wonderful organ; it starts working the moment you get up in the morning and does not stop until you get into the office.'' -Robert Frost

This quote would be perfect to caption a meme. It holds a lot of truth, though. Why do all common sense and creative juices stop at the door when we get to the office? Maybe they just need a boost of coffee to wake them up and recharge. After all, coffee is the best brain juice I've ever tasted.

11. ''The best way to appreciate your job is to imagine yourself without one." -Oscar Wilde

I know many of us joke around about quitting and finding another job. Unfortunately, not everyone has the luxury of time and resources to be without a stable source of income. Only a stupid person will give up their job without a backup plan. So, no matter how much you want to find something else and quit the job you have, I'd suggest securing your savings and having a plan before taking the plunge.

3 Rib Tickling Messages About Life That Will Still Inspire You

The best thing about comedians like Bob Hope, Joan Rivers, and Bill Murray is that they know how to balance out the funny things they say with some heart-warming line or inspirational quote. Combining humor with motivation is the perfect way to push yourself or someone else to achieve the goal. It will help you lighten up and still spark that flame of inspiration within.

12. "To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first, and call whatever you hit the target." -Ashleigh Brilliant

Pop culture has really opened us up to insightful and funny T.V. shows from the United States. As Michael Scott quoted in The Office, you miss one hundred percent of the shots you don't take. It's undeniably true that you should take opportunities as they come because that's the only way you can hit a home run. In this quote, Michael echoes Ashleigh Brilliant in saying that you should shoot as often as possible and have the confidence to call the target as the shot lands.

13. "An optimist is someone who falls off the Empire State Building, and after 50 floors says, 'So far, so good!'" -Anonymous

If you've never seen this New York landmark, you better look it up and see how tall it actually is. An optimist will certainly say it's fine, even if they're falling from the sky. In life, we always need a little optimism to get us through the day. Saying you have only one problem when you have dozens helps you take on one thing at a time instead of panicking about many things all at once.

14. "People can't drive you crazy if you don't give them the keys." -Mike Bechtle

How funny (and true) is this statement? We all have the capability to push someone's buttons, but we can only do that if they allow it to happen. If you show people that you can't be pushed around, they will stop trying. Your confidence and personal beliefs will help you show others that you have a mind of your own that doesn't need convincing.

3 Ridiculously Funny Sayings About Relationships

Another thing that needs a lot of humor is a romantic relationship. Ask anyone in a long-term partnership, and they will always tell you the secret to a happy relationship: laughing with each other and enjoying your partner's company. If you've got a joker husband or wife, you'll surely laugh every day you're together.

I'd say you should also be grateful for all of the jokes, love puns, and playful insults you share because they help you break the ice after an argument or relieve tension when you are stressed. They will help you make each other feel better in times of heavy emotions.

15. "Romantic love is a mental illness. But it's a pleasurable one." -Fran Lebowitz

Talking to people who are in love is like talking to a clown who makes no sense. They are giddy and clueless about the realities of life, yet they also look incredibly content and happy in each other's company. The innocence of romantic love really captures the genuine emotions of the couple.

16. "He gave her a look that you could have poured on a waffle." -Ring Lardner

Lines like these make perfect captions on Instagram posts. Let's say you are on vacation with your partner and have breakfast together, looking out into the beach on a sunny morning. The sun hits your partner's face, and you snap a photo with them smiling while pouring syrup on their waffles.

When you post that photo and put this quote as a caption, you'll definitely earn yourself a lot of points and get a lot of kisses from your significant other.

17. "Spend a few minutes a day listening to your spouse. No matter how stupid his problems sound to you." -Megan Mullally

Betty White once said, "Friendship takes time and energy if it's going to work. You can luck into something great, but it doesn't last if you don't give it proper appreciation." Talking and working things out may be tiresome, but it's necessary so that your partner feels like they have someone to share the heavy load of their problems.

Even if you don't have the same challenges, even just listening to them will give them the validation and support they need.

How To Send Funny Sayings To Someone

People love it when you send them a text of something funny or witty when they're having a boring day at work or home. If you're having trouble with how to send funny sayings to someone, here are a few tips you can consider before composing that message:

1. Make sure they're open to receiving it.

You can always tell if someone is in the right headspace to read a joke. If you know they're in an important meeting or running an errand, it might not be the best time to send the message. It's better to send a joke when you know they're not doing anything important or time-sensitive. If they say they're watching T.V. or having a coffee break, then you know that they're not that busy to read your texts.

2. Make sure they're in the mood to read a joke.

You'll also know that if a person is angry or stressed, they might not appreciate you cracking a joke and bothering them. They may have just been reprimanded by their boss or rejected from an interview, and you send a joke that pokes fun at their problem. That might put you in a bad place with that person.

Check first if they're happy or neutral before you tell the joke so you don't upset them.

3. Make sure they can relate to the joke.

It might be frustrating for people to read a joke that they can't relate to. It will be even more frustrating for the person who told the joke because they'd have to explain it, and it will just make things super awkward. Choose from our list above and see which category the other person can really understand and laugh about.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you still have some clarifications about hilarious quotes and how you can really make the most out of them? Here are some frequently asked questions that may be able to help you out:

How do you enjoy life quotes?

Sometimes, we go through phases in our lives where we need a little inspiration and motivation to keep going. Unexpectedly, these quotes can show up on our social media feeds at a time when we need them the most. Most people share them on their personal feeds or use the quotes they see as captions to their posts. Some also share them with friends, co-workers, or family members who they know will relate to the message.

Is there such a thing as a serious joke?

Since jokes are meant to be funny, I don't think there are serious jokes. However, some people may take some jokes so seriously that they might get offended by the joke's context. That's why it's important to be careful about being too crass or personal when cracking a joke.

How can you a crack joke without being corny?

You can almost always get away with corny jokes just by their delivery. Do some physical elements, like hand gestures and demonstrations, to add to the comical aspect of the joke. You can also laugh hard after the joke, so if people don't find it funny, they will laugh at how hard you're laughing.

How do I get more joy in my life?

Being optimistic is a great way to get more joy in life. When you have a positive outlook on life, you will find more happiness in the simple things you experience. Finding a cozy coffee shop or buying your favorite ice cream are some simple ways you can enjoy your life. It's not really that difficult to be happy. It's easy to find happiness when you know where to look.

Go back to your childhood with a funny joke or three, and you'll have a blast reading these! So, find your favorite knock-knock joke that I, the joke king, approve of!

2. Knock Knock! Who's There? Robin. Robin who? Robin you, now hand over the cash.

Or is it Robin Who'd? This one is such a really bad knock-knock joke, and it probably belongs on a list of bad jokes from Reddit. Bad jokes like this are great to use on anyone. I guarantee a laugh at how corny it is or a glare.

3. Knock Knock! Who's there? Dwayne. Dwayne who? Dwayne the bathtub already, I'm drowning!

This one belongs in a hilarious joke book. The funniest jokes are often pun-geon-level jokes. The joke really makes you think, though: who drowns in a bathtub, anyway? Probably a really short person.

4. Knock Knock! Who's there? Stupid. Stupid who? Stupid you, that's who.

Nothing like a bit of mean humor now and then. Every good knock-knock joke has to have its counterparts. Just ensure your audience knows this is a bad joke, so no one's feelings are hurt.

6. Knock Knock! Who's there? Oink. Oink who? Make up your mind-are you a pig, or an owl?

Any sound an animal makes can be used in place of the pig! Neigh who? Meow who? There are plenty of possibilities. No matter what you choose, you'll still make some owl sounds. Hoo hoo!

7. Knock Knock! Who's there? Leaf. Leaf who? Leaf me alone!

Why don't you make it like a tree and leaf? Many a great knock-knock joke was made based on a pun. When making your own knock-knock jokes, a winning method is to choose words that sound similar to other, funnier words.

8. Knock Knock! Who's there? Europe. Europe who? No, you're a poo!

Watch your language, mister! This one can be a little mean. Kids are naturally insensitive, so they'll say mean things, but then they'll make up just as easily. And they love poo jokes.

8 Typical Bad Knock Knock Jokes From Fathers You Don't Want To Miss

Dad jokes are their own special brand of bad. Some of the worst jokes are just so plain unfunny, they come full circle and become hilarious again. So, if you love jokes and want to combine those with knock-knock jokes, here are some of the best (worst?) jokes out there.

Knock knock, who's there? Dad!

9. Knock Knock! Who's There? Justin. Justin who? You're Justin time to hear me fart!

You're Justin time to read this terrible joke! Only dads can take the template for any old joke and turn it into a fart joke. Better clear out then if he's really going to pass gas, or you'll be Justin time to smell the consequences.

10. Knock Knock! Who's there? Like! Like who? Like father like son, the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.

Or like father like daughter, depending. But if the son grows up and starts making his own dad-and-knock-knock joke combo, then the apple truly doesn't fall from the tree. It just makes terrible jokes to its kids.

11. Knock Knock! Who's there? Pasture! Pasture who? Past your bedtime, what are you still doing up?

Perfect for if you want to send the kids to bed in a funny way. I think all kids can appreciate this joke. So if your kids have been naughty and stay up late, make them laugh before you send them to bed.

12. Knock Knock! Who's there? Stranger! Stranger who? Didn't your mom ever tell you not to open the door to strangers?

It works every time. Everyone falls for this joke, especially if they're made to follow the knock-knock joke procedure. Take sweet revenge by using this joke on the next person you see! They'll fall for it every time.

13. Knock Knock! Who's there? Annie. Annie who? Annie thing you can do, I can better!

More puns based on names? You know it! Annie way, Annie thing you can do, I can do much better. That includes making terrible jokes that will make you frown and eventually smile again.

14. Knock Knock! Who's there? Haven. Haven who? Haven you heard enough of these knock-knock jokes?

Just so we're clear, it's pronounced "Hah-ven," not "Hay-ven." If the person you're talking to is sick of all these knock-knock jokes they've heard, tell them this one to finish things off. They might actually appreciate this one.

15. Knock Knock! Who's there? Double. Double who? W!

This one isn't so much unfunny as it is just plain correct. So, consider giving yourself a W if you manage to pull this off on someone. And if you can pull it off on the next person, you get a double W!

16. Knock Knock! Who's there? Voodoo. Voodoo who? Voodoo you think you are asking me so many questions?

If only the word "who" was at the start of the sentence so that it could be "Who do." Voodoo is close enough, though. So, voodoo you think made the best knock-knock joke you've heard today?

Interesting History of Knock Knock Jokes

You may know plenty of knock-knock jokes through hearing them throughout your life, but do you know about the history of these classic gut-busters? If you're interested in understanding the troubled history and origins of knock-knock jokes, you've come to the right place. I'll give you a short but informative explanation of what they are and how they came to be.

The origins of the knock-knock joke are lost to history, but some believe it to originate from William Shakespeare's Macbeth - in which the porter, hearing three knocks on his door, responded with "Who's there, in the name of Beelzebub?" This setup may be familiar to people of all ages in today's world, but it didn't start its life as a common joke until much, much after Macbeth.

Knock-knock jokes weren't always the knee-slappers we know them to be. In fact, they were highly scrutinized by critics during their heyday. They started life in the 20th century, specifically in the 1920s, as "Do you know?" jokes. Here's the most popular one at the time: "Do you know Arthur?" "Arthur who?" "Arthurmometer! (Our thermometer!)" Since then, they have evolved into the shape of the jokes we're familiar with today: knock-knock jokes.

Who ended up starting the whole craze was a mystery - but it was such a hit at the time that even Hollywood started performing knock-knock jokes in plays. But as with all new trends and fads, they had their detractors and critics. At the time, some people considered those following the new fad as having social problems or being possessed by mania. For example, D.A. Laird, the director of the Rivercrest Psychological Laboratory at Colgate University, went on a lengthy tangent against mass mania - knock-knock jokes included and claimed those who constantly pun and those who enjoy such jokes as if they were sick people. He even claimed them to be "absurd stunts which became crazes that occupied the interests of thousands of young people."

However, knock-knock jokes have endured and become a staple form of humor in the modern age. Whether they're funny or not is still hotly contested by people, but you can't deny that they've become ingrained in humanity's collective humor as a classic.

2. I've written a song about tortillas. Actually, it's more of a rap.

24. Whenever I lose my TV controller, I always find it in a remote location.

In contrast, whenever I lose my TV controller, it's always nearby. But I end up pushing a few buttons trying to find it, and it turns me off whenever I find it in a place I'd never thought to look.

25. Last night, I dreamed I was swimming in an ocean of orange soda. But it was just a Fanta sea.

Personally, I'd rather swim in an ocean of Dr. Pepper, but I'm afraid I'd constantly sneeze if I ever had to. Unrelated, but do you know what soda would make a great chef? A Coke.

A Brief History of Puns + A Featured Book!

Puns are older than you think. In ancient Egypt, puns were used in myths and to explain dreams. Since the dawn of language, puns have emerged to make connections between words and concepts, a key factor in the creation of wordplay.

Because of that, the humble pun has taken root in all languages in the world today. In the modern era, puns are used primarily as tools for expressing humor. If you're more interested in how the modern pun took its shape, here is an excellent book that will teach you exactly that.

The Pun Also Rises: How the Humble Pun Revolutionized Language, Changed History and Made Wordplay More Than Some Antics by John Pollack

When talking about the subject of puns, John Pallack, former World Pun Champion, has written an excellent treatise on the humble pun. In this book, he explains what they are, how they are used, and how they affect history. It's an educational and erudite work that thoroughly dives into how the humble pun revolutionized language and explains how the modern pun took its shape after seeing use in almost all eras of history.

A great read for those who want to understand why and how puns came to be.

How To Make A Good Pun

Want to know how to be funny? At Mantelligence, we've studied how! But what we've covered there isn't the only way to become funnier.

Puns are a great way to strengthen your funny bone. And making a good pun can be all the difference between an ordinary joke and an absolute gut-buster.

Tip #1: Choose a subject.

Before you start making funny puns, you have to choose a subject. Start thinking about funny truths or facts about that subject, taking notes while you do. Once you've picked a proper subject, start thinking about things related to the subject! Choose clever or bad puns related to the subject, then take the next step.

Tip #2: Use wordplay.

Now that you've picked your subject and studied things about it, now's the time to use the words associated with the subject differently. Use rhymes, homophones, homographs, or figurative language to connect the dots. Make words take on a different meaning through your wordplay.

Having a good vocabulary or doing research can also help you improve your wordplay and elevate ordinary puns into amazing ones.

Tip #3: Study the words carefully, and think outside the box.

Sometimes, the best puns are in the line of sight of the words and subject you choose as a focus. Start thinking about keywords and things that could be related to them. Another method is to think outside the box - and try to connect things seemingly unrelated to your keywords to see how they fit.

Even the same word can have a different meaning when you think broadly. You'll create some uncommon puns by doing this.

Tip #4: Practice your delivery.

Once you've thought of a good pun, you can start using them. But hold on - the delivery is the most important part of using puns, and you don't want to mess it up.

Practice in front of a mirror or have a friend as a muse, and try to deliver it in the most striking way possible. You don't want to flub when it comes to the real thing.

Frequently Asked Questions

In this list, we've included funny jokes, witty jokes, and even a bad joke and a dad joke here and there. Plus, we've listed a few helpful tips on how to make your own puns. Are you satisfied, or is there still more you'd like to know?

If so, here are some frequently asked questions I've answered that may shed light on the subject.

Why do people use humor as a coping mechanism?

Humor's primary goal is to make people happy. A person tends to want to stay happy, so they use humor to cope with stress. Even a bad joke will do the job, as long as it helps the person take their mind off their problems.

So, humor is a popular coping mechanism for many people.

Is it appropriate to crack jokes on a date?

In our sister (brother?) blog Mantelligence, we've covered dating tips for those in their 20s. What isn't included there is that jokes can help endear yourself to your date. As long as the mood is light and playful, cracking a good joke can help your date appreciate you more.

Just make sure to read the mood correctly - you don't want to joke around with someone who isn't interested, after all.

Can I tell a joke to someone I just met?

Jokes can help close the distance between two people who've just met. The language of humor is universal, and everyone can appreciate a good knock-knock joke here and there. So, feel free to crack a joke with someone new - they might find you funny and entertaining to be with.

Can I use jokes as stress relievers?

Jokes are great for relieving stress! They provide a lighthearted mood for those who want to escape their problems for a time. So, when you're feeling stressed, or notice someone else fighting it, crack a joke or two to brighten the mood and create a fun energy.

Ultimate List of Heart Pumping Trampoline Fun Activities for All Ages

We've assembled a list of some of the best, most exciting, most heart-pumping trampoline activities people of all ages can enjoy! Whether you're a kid or an adult looking to enjoy being young again, here are some of the best trampoline activities for you!

Trampoline Game Types

6 Common Trampoline Activities Everyone Could Enjoy

We've assembled many a classic game here in this list of common trampoline activities! Whether you're in a trampoline park or at home with your personal backyard trampoline, there are many fun things to do with trampolines in store for you to enjoy on this list!

1. Piggy in the Middle

Piggy in the Middle is a classic game where one person, the Piggy, must try to catch a ball thrown over the trampoline by two people on the outside who are passing it to each other. The outside players can circle the net to confuse the Piggy, but they must throw it over the trampoline!

2. Crack the Egg

Crack the Egg is a fun game where one person, the egg, must lie down on the trampoline surface while hugging their knees. Two other players must try to "crack" the egg - that is, force the egg to let go of their knees while pushing the jumping mat up and down with their feet. The person who can hold out the longest is the winner!

3. Four Corners

This one is best played with a rectangle trampoline, but a circular one can still work for it! First, divide the trampoline into four zones or corners. Then a person, "it," must stand in the center and close their eyes, then count to 10. The other four players can move around the corners while "it" is still counting. When the counting ends, everyone must freeze, and "it" must point to one of the corners - whoever is in that corner is out!

4. One, Two, Three Sit!

This one is an easy game that kids often play. Everyone must stand in a circle around the trampoline mat. One person must say, "1, 2, 3, Sit!" When they say the last word, everyone must sit! The slowest to take a seat is out, and the game begins again. Don't sit too early, though, or else you're out too!

5. Bum Wars

Bum Wars is a jumping game that challenges your ability to bounce. Everyone must continue bouncing until someone starts chanting: "1, 2, 3, 4... I declare a bum war!" Everyone must then bounce off their butt and try to land on their feet. However, you only have one jump - if you bounce more than once, you're out!

6. Dead Man Rise

Dead Man Rise is an interesting, trampoline-friendly take on blind tag. One person, the dead man, must sit in the middle of the trampoline, close their eyes, and count to 10. Other players, meanwhile, can use all manner of stealthy movements to try to hide. When the count ends, everyone has to say, "Dead man rise!" Then, the dead man must keep their eyes closed, then crawl and try to catch someone, making them the next dead man. Everyone can still move while the dead man is crawling, but no one can bounce over them, so they might have to crawl too!

6 Trampoline Activities Kids Will Surely Love

Young people will surely love these games for kids. These games may be for the especially young, but if you're young at heart, then you too can enjoy them. Just jump right in, and have a blast!

7. Bubble Arena

People below six years of age can even play this game! Someone, preferably an adult, must sit on the side of the trampoline. Then, they blow bubbles towards the center. The other player's goal is to pop as many bubbles as possible before they touch the jump mat and disappear. You don't even need to bounce to do this, but it makes it more fun to do so! It's a fun activity to do with your child or a younger sibling.

8. Slithering Snake

Slithering Snake is a trampoline take on jump rope - except you're not swinging the jump rope up and down. Instead, one person has to drag the jump rope over the jumping surface as a "snake," and the other players have to jump and avoid having it touch their feet. This continues until there's only one person left - the winner!

9. Ring Around The Rosie

This one's a game that's fun to do with lots of players! One person must stand in the middle, while the others form a ring around the person with interlocked hands. Then, while the person in the center sings the song, everyone has to circle them! When the person finishes singing, on the cue of the word "down," everyone has to fall down. The slowest one to do so loses!

10. Musical Bounce

Musical bounce is a great game for kids who love music! Everyone must be separated from each other on the trampoline, and none of them should get in contact with each other or move from their spot. Then, play some music. After a while, call out, "Bounce!" Everyone must then bounce to the song's beat - and when it ends, the slowest one to bounce to the beat is out.

11. Crazy Counting

This game is pretty similar to Four Corners. A person, "It," must stand in the middle, close their eyes, and count to 10. Everyone can move around while that person is counting. When they finish counting, they must point in a direction - anyone in that direction is out! This continues until there's only one person left, and that person becomes the next "It."

12. Don't Wake The Baby

This one can be done with any trampoline, but for the best experience, try it with a ground trampoline. One person, the baby, must close their eyes and pretend to sleep. Then, players must sneak over and try to tag the baby one at a time without waking them up. If the baby gets tagged, they have to try to guess who tagged them - and if they guess correctly, that person becomes the next baby.

5 Active Routines Done Using Trampolines and Balls

Many sports revolve around playing with a ball, so one can introduce a ball into their trampoline fun games to create fun combinations. Whether it's a dodge ball, a softball, or even a tennis ball, there are plenty of fun combinations of ball games and trampoline active games for players out there!

13. Bouncing Air Catch

In this game, one person must stand on the trampoline and bounce. Another person stands outside the trampoline and throws the ball over the net. The person in the middle has to try and catch the ball being thrown! The two players trade places when ten balls are thrown and begin anew. Whoever catches the most out of ten balls between the two wins!

14. Birds in the Nest

This game combines the fun of a treasure hunt and a trampoline in one! First, you need different colored balls. Everyone who isn't the bird is designated their own color. These "runners" must then wait for the bird to hide the balls all over the backyard. When all the balls are hidden, the runners can then try to search for the balls of their color, and throw them back into the trampoline enclosure, called the "nest." After a while, the bird can then declare, "To the nest!" And the person with the most colored balls collected in the nest wins!

15. Poison Ball

This game needs a large number of balls. Try to fill the trampoline with as many balls as you can! The people inside have to jump and bounce - but if any of the balls touch them, they're out! The last one to be touched by the poison balls is the winner.

16. Trampoline Dodgeball

This one has a few rules to it, but it can be a fun and challenging game that combines the fun of dodgeball with trampolines.

Two people on opposite sides of the trampoline must try and hit the dodgeball into each other below the waist. You can only hit it once per "turn," waiting for the other one to hit it back or for it to hit the net before you can try again. The first to score 11 points wins!

17. Spikeball

Spikeball combines standard volleyball rules with a small trampoline in the middle.

On opposite sides of the trampoline, there has to be at least one player each. Ten, you have three tries to spike the ball into the trampoline to make it rebound towards the other team. If they miss hitting it back, you score a point!

5 Fun Online Trampoline Activities

You don't need to have your own trampoline when trying these entertaining online games with trampoline. We've covered fun things to do online over at Mantelligence, and you can add trampoline fun to that list of things you can do! If you want to enjoy bouncing without the physical activity involved, you can try these interesting games.

18. Trampoline Stickman

Trampoline Stickman is a fun way to experience the physics of trampolines without needing to own one yourself. Control a stickman and try some fun tricks in this simple but addictive game!

19. Backflipper

Backflip off not only trampolines, but tall buildings, trees, and more in this physics-based game. It's got all the thrill of freefall... without the risk of injury involved. Great for people who want to know what it feels like to do sick tricks!

20. Walaber's Trampoline

Walaber's trampoline is a trampoline simulation game where you can train your virtual character in the ways of bouncing and jumping on a trampoline. Level them up, complete the campaign, and try different tricks in this detailed simulation.

21. Flip Master

Flip Master is less about realism and more about trying to do the sickest tricks possible on a virtual trampoline. Practice flips, jumps, bounces, and so much more in this trick-based simulation game!

22. Realistic Trampoline Simulator

This game is a bit simpler than the others on the list but no less fun and entertaining. Control a bunch of animal characters as they take turns jumping off a trampoline. Just remember to stick the landing!

4 Sweat-Worthy Activities on Trampolines That Can Turn Into Exercise

Are you looking for a great workout? Do you want to find some rigorous exercises that train your body? We've got some sweat-worthy activities for you! These simple but effective exercises can develop your core and lower body and also aid in training your balance. Just make sure to prioritize safety when trying these excellent exercises.

23. Trampoline Jumping

This one is simple: try to get high jumps while bouncing on the trampoline. The goal isn't to get the break your highest jump on record - instead, it's all about building a rhythm to get as high as you can without breaking it. This exercise will train your lower body strength and develop those thighs and calves.

24. Trampoline Dance workout

This one doesn't need a large trampoline - a small, person-sized one will do. All you have to do is dance to the music while on a trampoline! This one trains your ability to balance on the often unstable surface of a trampoline while teaching you all about some sick dance moves in the meantime. It's a great way to train your body and your sense of style as well.

25. Trampoline Lunges

Doing some lunges on a trampoline can be more difficult than doing it on the ground. You're balancing one foot on the unstable trampoline that pushes back whenever you lift yourself off it. Because of this, it can be a bit more rewarding than regular lunges! It'll train those glutes and thighs exceptionally.

26. Basketball with Trampoline

Basketball on a trampoline can teach you plenty about making the best jumping shots. Learn to make seriously skillful three-pointers or practice your sensational dunks by doing some trampoline basketball, and you'll soon go pro.

Things to Consider When Playing With Trampoline: 5 Precautionary Measures

We've talked plenty about the fun things you can do with a trampoline, but before you try any of them, you should consider these precautions when playing. Jumping on a trampoline can be dangerous and could cause serious injury without the proper safety measures in place. We'll discuss some basic measures to ensure a safe and fun time.

1. Always have supervision.

Especially when there are kids around, there should always be an adult supervising any trampoline activity. They should be able to step in when kids get too rowdy or try things they're not trained for, and they should also be able to step in when an actual injury takes place. Even if you're an adult, you can never be too safe - so have someone nearby if possible accidents occur.

2. Remove sharp objects before you enter.

Sharp objects can damage the trampoline or, worst of all, puncture it completely. Having anything sharp on your person can cause serious injury when it punctures the mat, so you should avoid carrying anything with you when you go in. Take off your shoes and leave your things outside the net to ensure a safe environment for everyone to be in.

3. Put the trampoline on a soft surface.

Never put your trampoline on concrete or any hard surface unless there's a layer of protection over it. You should try to put your trampoline on something soft, like grass or soil - that way, any sudden impacts don't seriously hurt the people in it. If you can, you can also line the outer edge of the trampoline with some padding - that way, in the unlikely scenario that someone jumps out of it, they'll have a soft landing.

4. Avoid backflips or tricks you aren't ready to do.

While it's tempting to try and do some tricks like backflips or front flips, do try to avoid them, especially if you're not trained enough to be able to perform them. You could cause yourself some serious injury if you try some tricks you're not ready for. And even if you are trained, it's best to try simpler, safer tricks that won't hurt you when you mess up.

5. Don't jump when going in or out of a trampoline.

An essential but often forgotten safety rule is never jumping into or out of the trampoline. The entrance to the trampoline enclosure is usually the least safe part of it - jumping off can result in a hard impact on the ground, or jumping in could unbalance the entire setup. Step off the trampoline carefully, and you'll avoid any injury in the future.

How Can I Make Playing With Trampoline More Fun

Bouncing on a trampoline can be fun by itself, but you can make it even more fun if you bring in toys from outside the trampoline itself. Bring balls, balloons, stuffed toys, and other things - it's also pretty fun watching them bounce along with you. You can also bring a music player nearby to play some tunes while you bounce - and even try dancing to them while inside. The most fun you can have is when you bring along a friend, though - play some fun activities with them, and you'll have the time of your life!

Frequently Asked Questions

Wow! I've covered a lot of games you can play on your trampoline here. You're set for a good long while, at least when it comes to finding things you want to do with your trampoline. However, you might still have some questions to ask about trampolines and how to set them up... and we've got the answers you need. Here are some answers to frequently asked questions about setting up your trampoline!

How much space do you need for a trampoline?

It depends on the size of your yard, the size of the trampoline you're going to buy, and whether or not you will have a net enclosure for your trampoline. If you have a decently sized yard with no fences around, then you likely won't need to worry about finding space. However, if you do have a fenced or walled-off yard, consider finding a space not directly adjacent to them - you could get seriously hurt if your trampoline is near them!

The size of the trampoline you will buy is important. For the most part, without an enclosure, you'll need a margin of 8 1/2 feet of free space for your trampoline - and as this encompasses the entire circumference, you should add 16-17 feet to your calculations. Just add this figure to the size of your trampoline. For example, an 8ft trampoline will require 24-25 feet worth of space, while a 12ft trampoline will need 28-29 feet of space.

If you do have a trampoline enclosure, then you'll only need to have a margin of 1.5 ft - that's 3 ft for the whole circumference - and so you'll only need a little over 15 feet for most trampolines.

What is the standard size of the trampoline required for playing?

It depends on the size and number of people you're going to play them with. An average round trampoline can go from 8 ft to 15 ft. For small families with only one child, then a 10 ft trampoline is perfectly suited for one or two people to play at a time. If you have lots of friends, consider getting anything from a 12 ft trampoline to a 15 ft one - that way, everyone can join in and share the fun!

Is it safe to buy a trampoline online?

It depends. Consider only buying if the seller has:

Measurements. The seller should be able to specify how large their product is. It can help you plan for the space you'll need to assemble the trampoline. You don't want to buy something too small or too large for your yard!

A detailed description. The seller should have pictures of their product and a detailed write-up on what it is, where it's from, and what it has going for it. This can also help you decide which one you want to buy from among multiple sellers.

Good reviews. See if other people have bought from the seller, and learn what they think about their product. If there are too many negative reviews, consider finding another seller.

What is a good age for a trampoline?

Don't let anyone younger than 6 years old use a trampoline as a general rule of thumb. Your age also determines your size, so the best age for using a trampoline varies - a child 10 to twelve years old can use a 10 to 12 ft trampoline by themselves, while an older person may want a larger trampoline to support their size and weight. Ultimately, people of any age above 6 years old can use the trampoline, but I recommend those aged 10 years old and above.

Game of Darts: All You Need To Know

Here, I've assembled all the information you need to enjoy a good game of darts. Its history, what things you'll need, and what games you can play with darts - all will be answered in the following sections. If you want to play darts with friends or are just interested in learning about the sport, there's useful information here for everyone.

Contents

Brief History

Darts started its life over 700 years ago, in the early 1300s. At the time, it was a pastime for soldiers who were bored between battles. They would throw spearheads, knives, and other sharp objects at the bottoms of upturned wine husks while sitting in trenches.

It was a way for them to practice their aim without being in the thick of battle. Later on, they moved on from wine husks to tree stumps, using the growth rings as a way to keep score.

Using rings to determine accuracy would later transform into the modern game of darts we know today - but for a time, everyone had their own scoring system, and there were no official rules made for the sport. It wasn't until 1896 that a proper ruleset and scoring system was devised by a Lancashire carpenter named Brian Gamlin. That version is the one most popularly used today.

Equipment

Dart games are simple games requiring only two tools: the dartboard and the darts used to throw at it. The rest is all up to player skill. Because of this simplicity and ease of access, anyone can play a round of darts, no matter their build, size, or age.

1. Dartboard

The dartboard is a circular piece usually made of wood, hung on a wall or as part of its stand. It is composed of two circles and two rings. There are many types of dartboards - some of them are a bristle dartboard, a magnetic dartboard, an electronic dartboard, etc.

The main differences are the durability of the dartboard and the size - the bigger the dartboard, the easier it is to get a lot of points. For the more traditional game of darts, bristle dartboards are the most widely used and available, but some more modern locations like the automatic scoring and electronic dartboard offer.

2. Darts

These are the main tools you'll be using in dart games. Darts are composed of four parts - the flight, the shaft, the barrel, and the point. The flight is at the very back of the dart and is a fan-shaped construct that helps the dart fly through the air.

Going up the dart, we have the shaft, which is what you'll be gripping when throwing a dart. The barrel follows, which is mainly used to hold the next part, the point, together. The point is what pierces the dartboard and determines the score you'll get after a throw.

Naturally, there are many types of darts as well, and going through all of them will take some time. For the most part, the main things to look out for are the type of tip you'll be using and what metal is used to make the dart itself.

There are two types of tips: steel tip darts and soft tip darts. Generally, steel-tip darts are the more traditional option - being weightier means they can be thrown more precisely and are more durable. These kinds of darts are best used with a bristle dartboard.

Meanwhile, soft-tip darts are lighter and cheaper but safer to use; they won't cause the type of injury a steel-tip dart would. The choice here depends on whether or not you prioritize safety over gameplay.

Finally, I'll go into the metals the darts are usually made of. Brass darts are the most common kind and the cheapest, perfect for casual play. You might choose a nickel dart for a more serious game; they are more durable but cost slightly more.

Finally, if you're looking to go pro, consider a tungsten dart; professionals swear by these because of the unique physical characteristics of tungsten. However, these are naturally the most expensive kind. The choice here depends on the game; if you do it for fun rather than sport, brass darts are the most economical choice.

Scoring

Scoring is mainly determined by where on the dartboard the dart falls; thus, the larger regions of the inner circle are worth fewer points than hitting the thinner areas of the rings.

The outer circle, called a single, has numbers 1-20 on it, which denotes the score you get. The inner circle is split into twenty sections painted in two alternating colors - usually red or white. These sections are aligned with the numbers on the outer circle, meaning that a point scored in the same section yields the same score as the number it's aligned with.

At the very center of the inner circle is what is known as the "bull"; in a traditional game of darts, it is worth 50 points.

The outer ring is a double, and any dart that lands in it score double the number it's aligned within in points. For instance, hitting the double 20 yields 40 points in a traditional game of darts. Meanwhile, the inner ring is called a triple; as you can imagine, it scores triple the points. That means that the most points you can achieve in one throw is 60 - triple a 20, more than that of the bull.

Darts Organizations

Darts isn't just party games you can play with friends at your local pub; it's also a sport with its own rules, competitions, and organizations. These organizations sponsor skilled players and pit them against other players in matches, many of which they host themselves. We'll be talking about some of the major ones here.

Professionals

Most professional darts players are sponsored by an organization that recognizes their skills, pitting them against other players in professional leagues. A bracket full of professional darts players usually fall under their organizations, competing for supremacy in the highly competitive sport. Each organization also has its own ranking for its top players, many of which are professionals themselves.

1. British Darts Organization (BDO)

Dart games originated in Britain in the 19th century and are very popular pub games. So naturally, Britain has its own darts organization. This organization was founded in 1973 by Olly Croft and, for a time, was one of the key players in the darts games scene.

However, in later years, it began to fall into a steep decline due to a dispute between Olly Croft and its top players over TV coverage and sponsorships. These players would then form their own organization, the Professional Darts Corporation. Subsequently, in September 2020, it fell into liquidation.

2. World Darts Federation (WDF)

Primarily a governing body for the sport of darts, the WDF is also a tournament organizer for the arts scene in general. It stages a world championship, called the WDF World Cup, and many continental cups such as the WDF Americas Cup and the WDF Europe Cup. The WDF is composed of 74 member countries, all competing for the title of Darts World Champion.

Following the dissolution and collapse of the British Darts Organization, the group has plans to start both the WDF World Championship and WDF World Masters.

Amateurs

There is also an amateur league for darts games, having smaller competitions and, thus, smaller prize pots for winning players. While not as high-level as professional darts games, it is more accessible, allowing those with little background in the game to play and compete against other similar players. Amateur players who win in multiple categories can also become professional players following a sponsorship.

1. American Darts Organization (ADO)

The American Darts Organization was formed in 1976, at a time when there was no greater unity in the darts game scene in the United States. Seeing the potential for a national organization set on unifying these individual scenes, Tom Fleetwood and Ed McDevitt formed the ADO to bring everyone together. In its beginning, it had 30 member clubs and 7500 players, and in recent times has achieved a yearly 250 clubs and around 50,000 concurrent members. It hosts professional league and amateur league competitions for players of all stripes.

Now that I've talked about the history and basics of dart games, it's time for us to learn about some of the easiest and most popular dart games and how to play them. I'll talk about the number of players needed, the numbers used for the game, and how to play them naturally. What are you waiting for? Read on, and you'll enjoy a fun game of darts with friends.

Dart game #1: Cricket

The game of Cricket is known in Britain by many other names, such as Mickey Mouse, Horse and Carriage, and Faldo, but for simplicity's sake, we'll just call it Cricket. The game aims to prevent the other player or team from scoring on specific numbers while scoring them yourself.

No. of players

All you need is two or more players to play this game. If you have four or more players around, you can form teams.

Numbers

The only numbers you can use are 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, and the bullseye.

How to play

Players or teams each have three throws. The object of the game is to seal off specific numbers by scoring them thrice. Doubles count as 2 times, and triples count as 3 times.

Sealing off a number prevents the other player/team from scoring with that number. When all the numbers are sealed, everyone adds the numbers they have sealed and takes the score - the player or team with the highest total score at the end wins!

Dart game #2: Killer

The aim of this game is to make others lose all of their three lives until you are the only surviving player left. To do so, you must become a Killer by scoring double your number, which is determined early on in the game by throwing a dart with your non-dominant hand.

No. of players

There's no limit to the number of players that can play! It's most fun when played with three or more players, though.

Numbers

All numbers are allowed, but your number is determined by landing a shot with your non-dominant hand.

How to play

First off, everyone in order throws a dart with their non-dominant hand. If they miss, they try again. The number they land on is their number.

Now, everyone must take turns trying to hit the double of their number. If they do so, they become a Killer. Now, these Killers must hit the doubles of the other players' numbers'; if they do, they take life from that person.

If a Killer hits their own number's double, then they lose a life! The game progress until there's only one left standing. That person is the winner!

Dart game #3: 501 and 301

These are two versions of the same game: the object is to deduct points from your total, whether it's 301 points or 501 points until you hit exactly zero. Bring a notepad for this - you're going to need to do some math ahead.

No. of players

There should be a minimum of two players. If there are four or more players, you can form teams! Each player or team gets a number of points specified by which version of the game you're playing.

Numbers

All numbers are in play, including the doubles and triples. They deduct the same amount from your score when hit.

How to play

Players or teams take turns throwing darts and deducting points from their score. The goal of the game is to hit exactly zero points. If you go over the number and end at a negative point number, that turn is called a bust, and the point deduction is considered invalid.

So, the idea is to hit a big number early on in the match, and when the score total becomes small, you start hitting small numbers instead until you get exactly zero points left.

Dart game #4: Around the clock

Notice that a dartboard looks like a wall clock, except with 20 numbers instead of 12? Well, this game takes full advantage of that. The goal is to hit every single number on the board in sequence, starting from 1 all the way up to 20 and the bullseye as well. This is a simple game that doesn't require a lot of precision - so there's no benefit to hitting a double or triple.

No. of players

One player can play by themselves, but there's no limit to how many people can play this game.

Numbers

All numbers are needed for this game, including the bullseye. Every number must be hit in order.

How to play

The game's objective is simple: you must go around the clock. That means hitting all numbers in order from 1 to 20 and, finally, the bullseye. There is no score involved; you just have to hit all the numbers in that particular order until you win.

If you hit a double or a triple, there's no bonus. The only thing you need to do is to go around the clock.

Dart game #5: Nine Lives

Like Around The Clock above, this game is about hitting all numbers in order. The difference is you have three lives (misleading, I know), and if you miss hitting the next number in all your throws, you lose a life.

No. of players

Two people are the minimum required to play. There's no limit to how many can play this game simultaneously.

Numbers

Every number from 1 to 20 is used. Players must hit them in order to proceed with the game.

How to play

Players use their three throws to try to hit the numbers in order. This means starting from 1, going all the way to 20. You lose a life if you miss the next number with all three of your throws.

If you lose all your lives, you're out of the game. However, if you miss only one or two of your throws, you resume from the number you hit instead, without losing your life. So, a perfect game involves never missing, while a normal game has everyone continue from their previous number until they hit 20.

8 Dart Game Pro Tips

Looking to improve at darts? Darts may be simple and easy to pick up, but they can be hard to master, especially professionally. Luckily for you, I've got some basic rules and some pro tips for you to learn, and hopefully, these will help you improve at playing this wonderful, highly addictive game.

Tip #1: Three (3) darts only per turn.

Everyone only has three throws per turn. This is an ironclad rule of darts games, and everyone has to follow it. This means that you have to plan your shots carefully; you have to aim for either the highest score you can get or the next number in succession.

By planning your three throws around getting the best score, you can more efficiently clear the games you'll be playing. If you miss a throw, that's okay; you still have two left.

Tip #2: Decide who shoots first.

Turn order isn't just a formality; it can be vital for strategizing for a game. If you go after the first person, you have ample time to watch their turn go and coordinate your turn after theirs. It can help you find that winning strategy to win the game with.

If you go first instead, you can win first in many games if you perform well enough to get ahead of the pack. The ideal turn order depends on your play style and can be beneficial to you if planned right.

Tip #3: Do not stand beyond the throwing line.

It's more of a safety precaution than a pro tip, but it's highly important to recognize. However, standing at the right spot can help you aim your darts properly; the throwing line is meant as the ideal distance for throwing a dart. So, by heeding this most ironclad of rules, you can significantly increase the amount of fun you'll have playing.

Tip #4: Fallen darts are out of play.

If you miss, then that throw is considered a bust. It's not the end of the world for most darts games; you'll just have to continue where you left off. Ultimately, the idea is that missing entirely is worse than getting a pretty low score - so in games where score matters, it's okay not to aim for the highest score you possibly can - you just have to avoid missing entirely for it to count.

Tip #5: Record your score before removing your own darts.

This tip is more for convenience than anything. Once you remove the dirt from the board, it becomes hard to remember where you exactly hit, so record your score ahead of time before removing your darts. It'll save time and memory space for you.

Tip #6: Stay clear of throwing player.

Safety is important! Darts can cause serious injury to any bystanders. Everyone has to steer clear of the throwing player, ideally being behind them, to ensure everyone is safe from harm. Stand a clear distance away from the line of fire, and everyone can enjoy a safe, fun game of darts together.

Top 3 Best Dart Players of All-Time

Now that you've learned quite a bit about the rules, tools, and versions of the game, plus a few handy pro tips to improve your playing, you might be wondering what professional darts look like. I've compiled a list of the three best darts players of all time and included a video demonstrating them at their best, so you'll know what it looks like.

#1: Phil Taylor

Though now retired, Phil Taylor is one of the most iconic and successful darts players in the world. He won eight consecutive World Championships, reached 14 consecutive finals placements, and reached 21 world finals. Every single one of these achievements is a record for the game. He was the world's number one darts player for thirty years, a testament to his skill in the game.

#2: Michael van Gerwen

Following Phil Taylor's retirement, Michael van Gerwen held the world's number one spot in his place for a period of time. He was the youngest winner of the PDC World Championship at 24 years old in 2014, a record still held by him today. He's won many tournaments in his time since and is the second most successful darts player after Phil Taylor.

#3: Eric Bristow

Also retired, but still no less impressive is Eric Bristow. Before Phil Taylor, he was ranked the number 1 in the 1980s. He's a five-time world champion and four-time World Cup singles champion. He was instrumental in the evolution of darts as a sport, turning it into a world-renowned spectator sport during his years.

Frequently Asked Questions

I've done it all; I talked about the game's tools, how to play it, gave some tips, and even talked about some professionals at darts. Still, you must be hungry for more answers. I respect that desire, so I'll answer just a couple more to satisfy your burning curiosity. So, let us begin.

What is the most popular dart game?

Cricket is the most popular darts game. It's a short but fun game one can play with friends doesn't require too much skill and is still fun to play. Cricket is the game of choice when you just want to enjoy darts without being overly heated in a competition.

Are dartboards made of horsehair?

Not at all. Wood is the primary material of choice for most dartboards. However, this question may be born out of the similarity that the material used in making dartboards looks and feels similar to horsehair. We're completely sure it's not horsehair, though.

What is the easiest dart game to play?

High score darts are the easiest and simplest dart game to play. With your three throws, you aim to achieve the highest score. It's simple, fast, easy to play with friends, and you can go multiple times. Other dart games are fairly more involved, but this you can pick up and go.

What happens if you go below zero (0) in darts?

If you go below zero, then it's a bust. Your turn is considered invalid, and you must start your next turn from where you left off. In some games, however, you start from 12 points instead.

How should a dartboard look?

A dartboard is a circular object, most commonly. As mentioned earlier, it is comprised of two rings and two circles. The rings are very thin and designed to be higher scoring portions, while the circles are much larger and are easier targets. After playing darts for a while, the dartboard may be full of holes, but that's okay; it won't affect your performance any.

More Exciting Plays To Explore

Now, I bet you've had your fill of darts info and darts games by now. However, if you're still hungry for more games to play that aren't darts, we've got you covered. Have some more fun games to play.

4 Drunk-Worthy Halloween Drinking Party For Friends

While the kids play are busy with contests and prizes, you might be tempted to break out the booze. After all, a celebration isn't at all complete without a toast! Luckily, there are ways to make the simple act of drinking fun this Halloween season, and I'll show you what they are.

13. Trick Or Drink

With plenty of people trick-or-treating during October, here's a fun way to take advantage of that: every time the doorbell rings and you hear "Trick or Treat," take a sip. Depending on how packed your neighborhood is, it can be a fun little extra or a serious drinking match between you and your friends. Have some candy with what you're drinking!

14. Slap Cup Game

Slap Cup is a pretty classic game that, nonetheless, can become pretty intense! Everyone must try to get a ball into an empty cup as fast as possible. If you manage on your first try, you can pass your ball and empty cup to anyone you want. On later tries, you can pass it to the person on your left. If you manage to get your ball in the cup faster than the person immediately to your left, you can slap their cup off and pass your ball and cup to that person's left! Everyone repeats this until the cups in the middle have been emptied.

15. Truth Or Drink

A classic game of Truth or Dare, except the dares are replaced with drinking. Over at Mantelligence, we've covered some dares... but you won't be using them in this game. Instead, you either answer a question or take a sip from your drink. The longer you all play, the harder it becomes to do anything - you either struggle to answer your questions or pass out from drinking. It's a fun way to get wasted this season, but beware of hangovers!

16. Never Have I Ever Game - Halloween Edition

A Halloween-themed drinking game like this is less about the frights and more about the laughs. Someone must state that they have never done X: they must take a sip if someone else has done X. If no one else has done X, then the person stating it must take a drink. The fun part is when only one other person has done X: they have to talk about it in as juicy a detail as possible! At any rate, be ready for a lot of laughs and drinking as you try to find something other people have done, but you have never done it yourself. At Mantelligence, we have done such "never have I ever" games!

Party Prize Ideas For The Brave Heart Winners

Ordinarily, you'd give candy to the people who win during Halloween, right? But that's so... typical. Instead, try spicing things up by giving people spooky, scary objects for when they win! Spooky skeleton figurines, fake ouija boards, Halloween-themed items... There are plenty of possibilities for fun gifts that stay away from the norm. For bonus points, try to cater the rewards to the activity that they won a prize for! Give someone a spooky egg during a Halloween Egg hunt, and they'll remember their success during the next spooky season.

Why We Celebrate All Hallows Eve

At Mantelligence, we've covered some Halloween trivia to get you started.

Halloween, known in Christianity as All Hallows' Eve, is the eve before All Hallow's Day. It is a holiday in which we celebrate all the saints who have gone to heaven. So, the day before that is a day in which we pay respects to the dead. Devout followers often refrain from eating meat on the day itself and pray in churches to respect the fallen. Trick or treating is born of the tradition in which people ask for alms in exchange for prayer.

Another possible origin for Halloween is the Gaelic holiday of Samhain, which means "summer's end." The Celtic people believed that the dead would walk among the living on this day. To commune with them, they donned costumes, lit bonfires, and offered sacrifices of cattle to them. In modern times, this ancient tradition has been reborn as a day of dressing up as frightening creatures themselves - now known as modern Halloween.

6 Scariest Movies To Watch For An Eerie All Hallow's Eve Celebration

Looking to celebrate this spookiest of seasons? How about watching some scary movies to get in the spooky holiday mood? If you're looking for great frights and scary scenes, you can't go wrong with this list of scary movies. Have a great Halloween movie night!

"The Exorcist (1973)"

The Exorcist is a scary and chilling film about a child who gets possessed by a demon, causing supernatural events to occur. Eventually, the child's parents call for an exorcism - with disastrous results.

The Conjuring takes place in a haunted farmhouse where strange, paranormal events occur. The Perron family, who have recently moved into the farmhouse, then calls upon two demonologists, enlisting them to find out the truth and perform an exorcism in the haunted location.

"The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974)"

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre is about Sally, her brother Franklin, and their friends, Jerry, Kirk, and Pam, trying to escape a serial killer named Leatherface. The serial killer kills Sally's friends in brutal and horrific ways, and Sally only narrowly escapes being killed herself.

"IT (2017)"

It is a movie about a supernatural entity known as "It," which takes on the form of a clown named Pennywise. The story follows a group of people who all have lived through individual traumatic experiences being terrorized by the titular It, and they try to find a way to escape.

"Hereditary (2018)"

Hereditary is about a family splintered after the death of their youngest daughter. Years later, strange things begin happening, their late daughter starts to speak through one of the surviving family members - and their lives are changed forever.

"The Blair Witch Project (1999)"

The Blair Witch Project is a film in the style of found-footage films. It covers the disappearance of three student filmmakers - Heather, Michael, and Joshua, as they attempt to film a documentary about the titular Blair Witch.

Remember playing with marbles? Well, it's time to be reintroduced to some old favorites so you can have a ball of fun!

I'm the king of games for kids and like this list of things to do with friends when bored found here, I'm also a resident game nerd and fun enthusiast. I've written about the best games to play over text and the most fun board games for adults, so I know my stuff!

Now, come roll with me and dive into the world of playing marbles...

Contents

What is a Marble Game (Exactly)?

A marble game is any game played with marbles, a hard, small, spherical object. There are many game types with varying rules and goals, some requiring you to throw, flick, drop or even knuckle marbles for points.

The balls used in these games can be made from either glass, steel, plastic, clay, or agate, and they differ in size. They're popular for their aesthetic colors and are often collected.

Brief History

Marbles weren't played using marble stones for thousands of years. Early Egyptians, Native Americans, and Aztecs used round pebbles or rounded clays. From cave dwellers playing to kill time to national marbles tournaments played for pride, these keep rolling through time.

Materials Needed

Marbles are easily found in dollar stores, or most places toys are sold. Depending on the game being played, you may need cups, string, chalk, pen and paper, and sometimes a timer.

A great thing about playing with marbles is that they can be played alone or with friends.

Safety Precautions

The most important thing to keep in mind when playing with marbles is their size. They are a potential choking hazard, so they should be kept out of reach from young children.

Most common marbles are made from glass, and as some games require you to throw or flick them, they can crack and break due to thermal shock. It's better to dispose of these and clean any shards left behind.

Playing with marbles has been an enjoyable pastime for generations. Like this list of fun things to do with friends on Mantelligence.com, marbles can create some spontaneous fun and true bonding moments.

Kids will love the colors and the many variations of games available, from traditional to the more contemporary spins.

1. Classic Marble Game

This is a simple game that's quite fun. The object is to use a shooter marble to hit as many target marbles out of the ring as possible.

How to play

You will need to draw a ring with chalk or create one using a string, with a diameter of about three feet wide (90cm). Place 10 to 15 marbles inside the circle.

The Player then kneels outside the circle, flicking their shooter marble at the marbles inside the circle, aiming to hit them out of the ring. If you get a target marble out of the ring, you get another turn. If you don't, the next player goes.

You can decide how to choose a winner of the game. It can be either the player with the most target marbles at the end or the player that can get the most marbles out of the circle in one turn.

2. Hole Game

The winner in this one is the last player standing!

Players must first flick their marble from a certain distance into the hole. If successful, they get a chance to flick their marble out of the hole, aiming at other players' marbles nearby. If they hit another opponent's marble, that player is out of the game.

How to play

The game rules are simple in this game.

You will need to dig a small hole about 3 inches across and draw a line about 7 to 9 feet back from the hole. This will be your starting point.

To begin, players must flick their shooter into the hole from the starting point. If they're successful in getting into the hole, they can shoot from inside the hole and go after another person's marble.

If they hit another player's marble with their 2nd hit, that player is out. If they miss, they leave their marble where it landed and shoot from there next go.

You can only go for another player's marble from inside the hole. If you get into the hole then manage to shoot out and hit another player's marble, you must get back into the hole again before going for a second player.

3. Bullseye Marbles

Are you good at bowling? How about darts? Well, this game combines the two! Aim for the bullseye to get the highest score.

How to play

You will need to draw a bullseye, or target rings, on the ground using chalk. Each circle is assigned a number of points, with the number increasing as you get closer to the middle. The bullseye should have the highest score.

All players get the same number of marbles to shoot, roll, throw or flick into the circles, aiming for the center. Count your scores up to determine who has the highest score. And, of course, the highest score wins!

4. Marble Bounce Game

In this fun game, you'll need a cup. It's a great game for indoors and is one you can play without a playing field.

How to play

There's only one rule in this one; aim and shoot your marble into the cup.

If that seems too simple and you want to kick it up a notch or make the objective a little harder, try adding a rule where your marble must bounce off the floor or wall into the cup.

A good activity for you to practice your trick shot!

4 Marble Plays that Are More Fun Outside

There are a lot of fun things to do, and some things are just better outside! So, if you're looking for something fun to do, step out of the house and try some of these entertaining games.

5. Marble Toss

This is a popular marbles game you can buy at the shops. It's usually made of wood, but there are many ways to easily make cheap home versions, like using toilet rolls taped together. If you have spare plumbing pipes of varying heights, these can be used too.

How to play

You will need a series of holes or tubes to toss your marbles into, each hole having varying points. Each player gets the same number of marbles to throw. At the end of the end, the person with the highest score wins.

6. Eggs in a Basket

If the children are tired of the same old games indoors, why not try this one? It's easy, customizable, and you only need marbles, a marker, and some empty egg cartons.

How to play

Similar to the traditional game of Marble Toss, except this time, you'll be tossing your marbles into empty egg cartons. You can color each compartment and add varying points to each. The winner is the player with the highest points at the end of the game.

Another way to play this and make it unique is by not playing for scores at all. Instead, you assign a fun dare to each slot, and whichever your marble lands in, that's the dare you must do.

7. Mini Marble Golf

Move aside board game; we're going to marble it! This is super fun and tests your accuracy and precision. A player must use a shooter to get a marble into the hole. Of course, it wouldn't be mini-golf without obstacles!

How to play

This does take a little more preparation, but you can make it as easy or as hard as you want. Dig a small hole at one end of your playing area, then choose a starting point a good distance away. Add your obstacles in between!

You must use 2 marbles, one as your ball and one as the shooter. Use your shooter to hit your ball and get it into the hole in as least shots as possible, passing each barrier along the way.

You can add arches your marbles must pass under or add toilet rolls you must go through. Each player goes through the same obstacles, but the winner is whoever does so with the least amount of flicks with the shooter marble.

8. DIY Marble Maze

This is similar to Mini Golf, except this time, you're racing with time. You can even play with no hands!

How to play

Use anything you can find around the house or garden to build mazes. Players must then race to get their marbles from start to finish. If you don't have enough material to construct multiple mazes, you can build one, and players take turns and are timed. The faster player wins.

There is a no-hands version of this game where instead of using your fingers to flick or roll your marble to the exit, you must blow it through the maze instead.

4 Games With Marbles That Can Be Enjoyed Online

There are a lot of things to do online when bored, like the fun list you can find here on Mantelligence.com. But did you know marbles are now popular and being enjoyed online too?

9. Marble Run

You might remember this educational game from your school days, where you create an obstacle of your marble to run through.

How to play

The idea of this is to connect ramps and slides for your marbles to run along. It's a bite-sized physics lesson, where you try to build the biggest and best structure.

10. Jungle Marble Blast

If you like truly addictive shooter games, this one is for you! Of course, rights reserved to the creator.

How to play

In Jungle Marble Blast, you need to clear all of the marbles before they reach the end of the course by shooting and matching 3 or more marbles of the same color. Complete as many combos as possible for higher scores.

11. Marbles on Stream

This one is a little different. It's designed for gaming streamers to interact with their communities. And you can even customize your marbles to stand out amongst the crowd!

How to play

Put your driving skills to the test because this is a race! Compete on a global leader board for the number one spot.

12. Zuma

Similar to Jungle Marble Blast, this is an action-packed puzzler. So if you're looking for other fun things to do at home that are different from the list found here, this game is for you!

How to play

With 3D graphics, you need to match 3 or more marbles together to clear the deadly chain. You can get big combos and special bonuses too!

5 Fun Facts About Marbles That Will Amaze You

Did you know the British and World Marbles Championship has been held in Tinsley Green, West Sussex, since 1588? In fact, there are so many astonishing fun facts about marbles we thought we'd share our favorites.

1. Marbles were invented thousands of years ago and were a popular item in Ancient Egypt and Rome.

They have stayed popular throughout the years. There is even a national marbles tournament held every year in New Jersey. They play the classic game to win thousands of dollars in college scholarships and sportsmanship awards for their professional skills.

2. Marbles are often collected due to the variety and value of some very rare specimens.

One of the most expensive and rarest marbles in the world is the Confetti Mica Marble. It's a glass marble with a common confetti pattern, but this one is made with actual mica flakes, making it expensive. It sold at auction for $11000.

3. Marbles, said to be named due to the stone they were manufactured from in the past, have been historically made of clay, and they were also produced using glass or stone.

Marbles can be made out of any hard material, but it is rare for them to be made of actual marble. Clay marbles are even more common.

4. Marbles aren't just toys.

Marbles actually have industrial uses. For example, they're often used inside spray paint cans to help mix the paint when it's shaken. Marbles are sometimes also used in building finishes, art, paving stones, and even road signs because of their ability to reflect light.

5. There are various types of marbles, and names vary from locality to locality.

Some types of popular marbles include the cat's eye, a clear, glass marble with an eye-shaped insert or core, bumblebee marbles, a mostly yellow, machine-made marble with two black stripes, and plain glass marbles of varying colors, but are transparent.

Frequently Asked Questions

Games using marbles are often easier than a card game, but still, you might have questions. Here, we've answered the most frequently asked:

How do you win in a marble game?

This depends on the game you're playing. Some games are about striking other marbles with yours, while others are about hitting a particular mark. Most games will have a point system.

What does it mean to play marbles “for keeps”?

When rules are "for keeps" it means you get to keep any marbles you win during the competition indefinitely.

What are some other uses for marbles?

They're regularly used as decorations around the home as vase fillers. But another idea is to use them in your gardens. Because marbles can reflect light and color, marbles can be added to plaster stepping stones as a finishing touch or any garden ornament or sculpture.

This post will tell you how to play the Ghost in the Graveyard game, a traditional game that is one of the most popular plays for kids.

I have written tons of articles about fun plays and other fun things to do with friends on our site here, including one about outdoor party fun activities that have been read over a couple of thousand times already. So, believe me when I say that this night game is an amazing graveyard game to bond with friends and family.

Let the fun begin!

What is Ghost in the Graveyard Game?

Ghost in the Graveyard is a traditional children's game similar to Tag and Hide-and-Seek, except that is played at night time. The goal of this game is to find the "it" hiding within the play zone. The player who finds the "ghost" should alert the other participants by shouting, "Ghost in the Graveyard!". Whoever gets tagged, or is the last to reach the designated "safe zone", will be the next "it".

Ghost in the Graveyard Play Rules

Anyone, young and old alike, can join this fun game. Also, more players mean more fun!

  1. Choose a home base where all players will run once they find the "it" player. There should also be a specific spot in the base/safe zone that they should touch so they won't be the next "it."
  2. While the rest of the players are in the safe zone, the "it" should hide in a secret spot within the play zone. Once the "it" finds their hiding spot, players chant "One o'clock, two o'clock, three o'clock..." until they reach midnight. After that, they will say, "Midnight, midnight, I hope I catch/see/don't see a ghost tonight!" and then leave the base to search for the "it."
  3. The "it" has to tag a player and be the next Ghost. If the player sees the "it," they should "Ghost in the Graveyard!". All of the players have to run back to the home base. The last player who reaches the home base, or is tagged by the Ghost, will be the new "it" in the next game.
  4. Continue playing the game until everyone gets to become the Ghost.

How To Play Ghost in the Graveyard

Have you already chosen a play zone? Have you already decided who's going to be the "it"? Are the rest of the players ready? Then, you need to consider these 3 things first before playing Ghost in the Graveyard.

Things to prepare before the game

All of the players should understand how to play this game. Before starting the game, participants should also look for a spacious outdoor area. Players also can use a flashlight to ensure safety while running around and searching for the "it."

The best area to play the game

The best area to play this fun game is in an open outdoor area so everyone can run freely, and the "it" has lots of spots to hide at. It can preferably be in someone's yard or a specific location in a neighborhood park.

Designate a spot in the playing field that will serve as the "base" where everyone should race back to when the "it" is found. It can be on the front porch, back patio, or a large tree in the backyard or park, anywhere that all players can stand on or physically touch.

You can also set a rule that if one of the players goes beyond the assigned boundary, they will be eliminated or become the "it" in the next round.

Choosing the players

At least three players can play this scaringly fun game, one of whom will play as the "it." The more game participants, the better and more chaotic fun it will be.

Players get to decide who becomes the "it" will be through the following:

  • Ask someone to volunteer.
  • Play rock, paper, scissors
  • Gather everyone in a circle using each player's hands or feet. One of the players says a rhyme while tapping each hand or foot for each word. When the verse ends, the participant removes a hand or foot. Repeat the steps until there is only one hand or foot left. That player will be the next "it."
  • The next "it" will be the one who got tagged by the Ghost, or the last one to reach the home base.

How to start the game

The participants must stand within the designated "safe zone" while the ghost finds a hiding spot. The players will then have to find the ghost within the play area... and that's when the fun starts!

Ghost in the Graveyard Play Pro Tips

Add more suspense and feels while playing this night game with some props, decor, and background music.

Here is the Ghost in the Graveyard game pro tips to take note of: 

1. Add more fun by setting up Halloween vibe decorations.

Putting up Halloween yard decorations, as seen on our site here, can also add to the overall feel of playing this outdoor childhood activity. Put everything back in its container when you're done playing (assuming that the Halloween season is over).

2. Play scary background music.

Choose a piece of Halloween-themed music and play it in the background while you are all running around in the play area. You can check out tracks on Spotify or download some from your favorite music streaming platforms.

3. Do it yourself creative Halloween costume or make up for the ghost player.

Top up your game a notch by donning Halloween costumes. No need for elaborate costumes. Try wearing a scary mask or make your own from your closet. Find someone who can also do makeup for the ghosts for maximum playing impact.

Ghost in the Graveyard Safety Tips

We all want to have fun with every game we play, whether indoors or outdoors. However, everyone's safety should also be a top priority, especially when playing outdoor activities (and in the dark, too). Here are safety tips every player should remember when playing this outdoor game:

This game is scary! Make sure everyone is prepared. Get the parent's permission before allowing kids to join.

Expect several jump scares and even accidental trips when playing in a play area with little to no lighting. That is why safety should be a priority during the activity. Make sure everyone is safe and injury-free during and after playing the game.

Find a safe outdoor space with no holes or hills that could cause accidents, falls, and injuries. Ask the parents' permission before letting kids join the game.

Fun Variants of Ghost in the Graveyard

There are other ways to enjoy this traditional outdoor game. For example, you can use flashlights during the game if you are not familiar with the play area or when the players are young children.

You can also opt to divide the group into two, of which half of the players will play as ghosts, and the rest will have to look for them.

Or, instead of the players looking for the ghosts, try doing it the other way around (the "it" searching for the players hiding -- similar to the traditional hide-and-seek game).

Meanwhile, here are fun variants of the Ghost in the Graveyard:

Variant #1: Santa in his Sleigh

Another traditional game you can play with your friends is Santa in his Sleigh. Perfect this holiday season, adults and kids can enjoy this guessing game.

  1. First, you will need a small sleigh figurine or ornament. Have the participants form a large circle. You can choose to play inside or outside the house.
  2. Then, choose a person who will be blindfolded. Hand the figurine to another participant. The player with the figurine should say, "Santa, Santa, where's your sleigh? A thief has come to take it away." Then the blindfolded participant has to guess who has the figurine.
  3. The blindfolded participant has three chances to guess the participant with the sleigh figurine. If the guess is right, the participant with the sleigh will be the next to be blindfolded. Otherwise, the sleigh figurine will be given to another participant, and the game should start over again.

Variant #2: Prison Break

Prison Break or JailBreak is another fun outdoor activity. Everyone, from kids and the kids-at-heart, can play and enjoy this activity without the props needed!

  1. Invite players -- the more, the merrier! Choose who will be the captain of each team. Make sure that the teams have the same number of participants.
  2. Choose a designated spot that will serve as the "prison." That space should accommodate all of the players in each team.
  3. Decide which team will hide first and look for the other team. The seeking team will count until the hiding team has already found a hiding spot. Once done counting, it's time to find the hiding players.
  4. If they find the hiding players, the opposing team members should catch them. The hiding players are allowed to run and not be caught by the opposing team. Once a participant from the seeking team sees a hiding player, the former has to hold on to the latter and say, "1,2,3... You're my man!"
  5. The captured players must stay in "prison." To "free" the participants in prison, an uncaught participant should touch the jail and shout "Prison break!". The prisoned players can run free again.
  6. The game ends when everyone in the hiding team is caught. You can restart the game by switching sides; the seeking team will be the one to hide and vice versa.

Frequently Asked Questions

You don't have to be a kid to be able to play childhood fun plays. Everyone is welcome to enjoy such kind of fun experience. But first, you might have other questions about this popular children's game that we'd love to answer.

How many times should you say the Ghost in the Graveyard chant?

The participants shall chant each hour (1, 2, 3, 4... and so on) until they reach midnight. After that, they will say "Midnight, midnight, I hope I see/don't see/catch a Ghost tonight!" The players will then go out of the home base to find the Ghost.

How many people do you need for ghosts in the graveyard game?

This game needs at least one participant who will play the "it." However, you can also level up the activity by dividing the team into two. Half of them become the "it," while the rest are the players who will look for the ghosts.

Can you play Ghost in the Graveyard online?

Yes, there are online versions of this evening game that you can play for free. For horror/suspense/thriller fans, you can also check out the movie of the same name starring Jake Busey and Kelli Berglund and directed by Charlie Comparetto.

As terrible as your delivery could be, this one is promising. Plus points if you unleash this one to someone working in a paper company. Did they say this on The Office?

12. Why is Peter Pan always flying? He neverlands.

Remember watching Peter Pan as a kid? Although that movie did not age well, I know that every kid wanted to visit Neverland. Imagine getting to play all day?

13. Why are piggy banks so wise? They're filled with common cents.

If you're a fan of Toy Story, you'd know that Hamm's piggy bank is a no-nonsense character. So I'd say that this joke has a factual basis.

Some dad jokes can pass as jokes for kids. Today, we'll share some funnies that you can tell your children or any kids you have in your life. Get ready to impress.

15. Why do fathers take an extra pair of socks when they golf? In case they get a hole in one!

If you're wearing shoes, it's best to bring extra socks. You never know when you need an extra pair for an emergency. So it's better to be prepared.

16. What do you call a fish wearing a bowtie? Sophisticated.

A fish wearing a bowtie is a marvelous sight to behold. Imagine the trouble a fishkeeper goes through to get a fish to wear a bowtie. Seeing a video of that would be much funnier.

17. What did the fish say when he hit the wall? Dam.

The fish in this scene has to be freshwater fish. The oceans and seas are vast. So if the fish suddenly finds itself near the shore, it would probably say "beach."

18. Why do bees have sticky hair? Because they use a honeycomb.

Although honey is usually included in hair care formulas, manufacturers dilute it to the point that it doesn't stick. The same can't be said for lathering pure honey on your head full of hair.

19. Where do young trees go to learn? Elementary school.

As an additional joke, try: Where do baby trees go when they're born? The nursery. No? Not funny enough? Well, let's head on to the next one.

20. What do you call a pony with a sore throat? A little hoarse.

Every child wanted a pony at one point. Ponies are incredibly cute and awesome. This one is sure to make some giggles out of the children.

21. Can you drop an egg on a concrete floor without cracking it? Yes, concrete floors are very hard to break.

This joke is just a matter of understanding. Some people might not get it immediately, but kids surely will. It can also pass off as an English subject joke to say in class just to break the ice.

5 Awful One Liner Dad Jokes That Can Lighten Up The Mood

Want to know how to diffuse an awkward situation? Letting out a funny one-liner can help break the ice. Just make sure that you say each one nonchalantly and confidently.

22. Can February March? No, but April May!

This great joke is a classic, so everyone will surely get the idea. Get more laugh points if you're with someone named April. That would be hilarious.

23. Mountains aren't just funny. They're hill areas.

Speaking of hilarious, perfectly delivering any mountain jokes can really make you feel like you're on top of the world. Be sure to enjoy the epic feeling of being the funny guy in your group with this favorite joke.

24. What’s brown and sticky? A stick.

Get it? It's a stick! Now, what's blue and looks like a stick? A stick that's painted blue!

25. What does a baby computer call his father? Data!

What's considered a baby computer—is it some sort of a handheld device, like a smartphone or an actual computer owned by a baby? Questions like this might keep up at night.

26. I'm afraid of the calendar. Its days are numbered.

A classic yet hilarious joke to tell any unsuspecting person, this joke will reward you with some harsh sighs and stifled laughs. Another corny joke would be: "I hope I were a calendar, so I always have dates."

5 Knock Knock Jokes You Hear From Your Father That'll Make You Cringe

The effectiveness of knock knock jokes solely depends on how you deliver them. If you want to develop your knock-knock skills, try practicing these jokes that are funny and cringey at the same time.

27. Knock Knock! Who's there? Amos. Amos who? A mosquito bit me!

This joke really bites, huh? Like mosquitos, your friends might find you pesky, but it's high time for you to unleash your cringey jokes on unwilling listeners.

28. Knock knock. Who's there? Tank. Tank who? You're welcome.

This is an ingenious way to rake in gratitude for your good-natured yet bad dad joke. Well, they really should be thanking you for trying to make them laugh—even though it's hard.

29. Knock Knock! Who's there? Barbie. Barbie who? Barbie Q chicken.

Among the jokes that don't really make sense, this one is up in the Top 20, at least. Some jokes don't really need to make that much sense.

30. Knock Knock! Who's there? Boo. Boo who? Aww, don't cry. It's just a knock-knock joke.

Imagine if someone tried this terrible joke on another person, but they said "boo" like a ghost. Then the other person would say, "Boo! Who?" That's a pretty aggressive way to cry.

31. Knock knock. Who's there? Hawaii. Hawaii who? I'm fine, Hawaii you?

This terrible dad joke is a classic joke to bug your friends with. Careful sharing this one with people who like to correct pronunciations. They'll say it's pronounced "huh-WAH-ee" or "hu-VAH-ee."

6 Dad Jokes To Tell During Christmas That Are A Complete Failure

Eye rolls, countless head shakes, and no doubt heavy sighs are to follow after these complete failure of dad jokes! But that's what makes them more funny. Purposedly failing to hit the mark, isn't that what dad jokes really are?

32. What's the most popular Christmas wine? ‘I don’t like Brussels sprouts!’

Feeding kids and even adults veggies during Christmas can be a total nightmare. But we still have to keep the meals balanced and healthy eve during Christmas. Tip: Reward kids who eat their veggies with some Christmas candy.

33. How can you tell snowmen from snowwomen? Check for snowballs.
