Jimmy Fallon invited Mindy Kaling and Andy Cohen to play a game of Jinx with him on last night’s new episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

I can’t get enough of the Tonight Show games with celebrities!

Last night on The Tonight Show, host Jimmy Fallon took part in a game of Jinx. Utilizing partners, each team will take turns trying to match each other’s answers, saying the word at the same time (hence the name of the game). They’re given random categories, and must try to guess what their partner is going to say.

On one team is Fallon and TV host Andy Cohen, with Tarik Trotter of The Roots and Mindy Kaling (Oceans 8) on the other. With these comedic minds together, we’re in for an entertaining sketch, and it hits the mark. This looks like a game I’d love to play with my own friends some night!

To give you an idea of what it’s like, here’s the first category given to Mindy and Tarik: Other names for marijuana. What’s the word slang word that comes to mind when talking about the substance? There are certainly many, but “weed” comes to mind first for me. If I were playing with Tarik, we’d get that one right, as he also says “weed.” However, Mindy says “reefer,” and the two wind up missing the first question!

These games always provide a lot of entertainment when they take place on The Tonight Show. Fallon is a lot of fun, and he always ensures the stars have a good time as well. As a fan, it’s a lot of fun to watch. For more of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, tune in when the show airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. EST on NBC!
