BBQ game nights

now that summer is here,
V and i love to have BBQ's with our friends & play games.
we played hoopla for the first time last week and laughed ourselves silly.
i also love cranium, celebrity, catch phrase, and bananagrams.

we have a pretty eclectic group of friends ranging from finance & ad peeps to actors so it's always high hilarity (especially when THEY'RE drinking*)

are there any other fun games we should play?

*no, i don't endorse drinking, i just think some wildly funny things have happened because of it...i don't drink which makes it even funnier to me...

I love Loaded Questions... a lot! Also, Buzz Word, Time's Up: Title Recall, Coloretto, and No Thanks! The last two games are card games for smaller groups and the first three are party games for larger groups; all of them very fun.

FARKLE! It's like $5 at Target. It's a fun dice game and it's fun with people who have different personalities. It brings out a gambler mentality in a lot of people, and I've noticed that people will surprise you when they play this one.

The game Quelf is a riot. The first time I played my mom and I rolled on the ground with tears of laughter.

Whackee Six is a fun, fast paced game!!

Looking for a hysterical pee your pants game that allows people to come out of their shell:

Curses!

You won't regret it.

Julie Weiss said...

Yes, definitely "Curses"--my kids love it and so do I. You will laugh till you pee your pants! Try it. :)

Eden said...

5 Crowns is a family favorite lately! Love it!

Try "Telestrations" it's sort of like the game of telephone but with drawings.

AlexJones said...

Boxers or Briefs is always a good time!

Stacey said...

Creationary is fun to play in groups. It's pictionary but you use Legos to build things instead of drawing them, and it's a lot harder than you think it would be. It's kind of fun to feel like a kid again playing it.

Wackee or Wacky or Wackie Six is the best!! (Forget how they spell it).

shannon said...

OKAY...A MUST - "What's yours like?" One of the funniest games I've ever played. Especially if you have some "off color" friends like I do!

Lexi said...

We just started palying Bang! and it is a lot of fun. My favorites are buzz word, scattergories, apples to apples and things.

The Nat Nat said...

Apples to Apples! It is a great group game - one of our faves.

Phredfamily said...

Bezzerwezzer and Loaded Questions are great!

KT said...

(And I learned about it from my Mormon peeps!)

You must try the game Timeout. It's so fun and awesome and great with groups. You can find it inexpensively on Amazon. Isn't summer the greatest?!

Sbankhead said...

curses!!!! crying ensues from laughing so hard!!!! It is a must!!!

I find it refreshing to see that you have an eclectic circle of friends. I too sorround myself with a variety of friends with a variety of backgrounds. Makes you a more well rounded person, and really allows you to show your true colors!
