The Farkle thread gave me an idea...

What games do you play for game night? I love playing games when I have people over for dinner and the riht game with the right people makes for an awesomly fun ngiht.

One of my favorites is Pit. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pit_(game)


Another is Scattergories. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scattergories

Yet another is Apples to Apples (since thsi weekend!). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apples_to_Apples

MASH has proven to be loads of fun in our office. I hadn't played that game since elementary school and we just laughed and laughed!

Rock Band 2.. My sis and I play often when she comes over. It's too much fun and there's so many songs you can play that we mix it up with rock and country. Our kiddos (both 2 yrs old) love it cuz they get to dance to the songs hehe

I thought it was a disease.

Is Axis & Allies considered a group game? It's one of my favorites!!

FINALLY ABOVE the gnat line
Hand and foot is a card game that is a lot of fun! Kid wonder and I practice at home until we go visit my aunt and uncle. UNO is another card game my daughter and I enjoy.

I mentioned it already in the Farkle thread but Apples to Apples is my favorite. I also like Phase 10.

I played another game not too long ago that was a ton of fun. It was called "What's Yours Like?" Each round, there is one person that has to guess what the others are describing. Everyone is trying to describe the same thing. For example, one round went like this:

Describer 1: Mine's big
Describer 2: Mine's wide
Describer 3: Mine's straight
Describer 4: Mine took years to perfect

The describer's were getting at the word "Smile".

It's a whole lotta fun.

Bah! All these "party" games. I'd suggest something a little more robust like Shadows Over Camelot (3-8 players vs. the board itself), BANG! (spaghetti western shootout for 3-8 players), or Betrayal at the House on the Hill (2-6 player creep fest where one of you will attempt to kill the others). Though I suppose for something interesting for "party" game people, try Once Upon a Time.

Way back in the day when I went over my high school boyfriend's house, his mom, dad, he and I used to play UNO - we used the "regulation" deck of cards, but added the draw 2's, draw 4's and reverses from 3 other decks! laugh
