A personal birthday quiz is a wonderful birthday surprise you can give to a friend or loved one at their birthday celebration!
At Abenteuer Freundschaft, you’ll find 5 recommended birthday games for adults – all custom game ideas that you can personalize and tailor to the birthday boy or girl (and the guests in attendance).
I myself have been surprised several times by my friends with a personally tailored birthday game and have been insanely happy about it every time. After all, nothing shows someone you care like when someone really puts thought and effort into something.
A simple but fun birthday game for adults is a personal birthday quiz. This one can also be tied in very well with the gift-giving. Whenever the birthday child answers a question correctly, you present him or her with another gift or part of a gift. (If the birthday child answers incorrectly or doesn’t know the answer, he may of course be helped by the round).
Here are 3 suggestions for how you might design a birthday quiz and what you might ask.
This form of birthday quiz is best prepared secretly together with other guests of the birthday party, because they are exactly the subject of this birthday quiz! More specifically, details of their lives, shared memories with the birthday boy / girl, funny reflections and whatever else you / you can think of.
Does the birthday boy or girl talk about his or her favorite show(s) all the time (…cough, I confess)? Does she or he obsessively follow a sport, a band, or have some offbeat hobby? Then you could write a funny quiz on the subject and really get to the heart of the birthday boy or girl to see how well he or she really knows his or her favorite subject!
Of course, the easiest way to do this is to share your passion for the topic yourself. Anika surprised me for my last birthday, for example, with a delightfully nerdy hardcore birthday quiz on our favorite series Twin Peaks and the year before even with a Game of Thrones Fan game – I was in luck! 😀
Otherwise, get inspired by our many quizzes here at Abenteuer Freundschaft e.g. the Movie Quotes Quiz!

In this birthday quiz there is no right or wrong in the answers, but it is about the fact that the birthday boy of the round, to answer the question, things about himself must reveal and, for example, details from his life tells.
Depending on how relaxed the birthday boy is, how formal the birthday party is and what kind of guests are present, but you should be careful not to ask too indiscreet questions.
Or do just that, if the or the person is open and you celebrate in a round of exclusively close friends 😉
