Party games

Given that I like Cranium Hoopla, Taboo, Telephone pictionary, Boggle, Clever Endeavor, and Apples to Apples, what other party games should I try?

    Naked twister.

    For some reason, I don’t think my girlfriend would approve of naked twister.

    Mafia’s not bad, but it’s so incredibly easy to break the game that it’s not even funny. Personally, I think it’s far better as a spectator sport, because you can laugh at the absurdity of the situations that come up.

    You should ask this question at

    Catch Phrase is fun it is similar to Taboo.

    If you like Apples to Apples I recommend Therapy:

    The Great Dalmuti is lots of fun, but I believe it’s out of print. Outburst or Balderdash are good, and Cranium has Cadoo and Cranium Family Fun, but those are more aimed at younger kids….

    I second Catchphrase. (I also have to try Ductionary someday.)

    Fluxx, without a doubt.

    Have you ever played mafia? Fun party game. I have to second Logan and say fluxx is the craziest fun game to play. I also enjoy Rummikub.

    Basic traditional Pictionary? Also, have you tried Boggle Deluxe? It’s 5×5 instead of 4×4.

    That’s what I mean when I say “Boggle” ;)

    Set! And a second vote for Fluxx.

    I also suggest Catchphrase. As someone else stated, it’s sort of like Taboo. You sit in a circle with adjacent people on opposite teams and try to describe a word or phrase on the disc to the people on your team. You pass the disc to the left if your team correctly guesses the phrase. There’s a random-length timer, and it’s sorta like hot potato. You don’t want to be holding the disc when the buzzer goes off. Immensely fun.
