I'll be entertaining some guests at my house this Saturday for a little get-together. Fall-themed of course. Does anyone have any suggestions for some party games for a group of about 10-15 adults? Examples of things I'm looking for are "charades" or that electronic game called "Catch Phrase"...stuff like that. There will be plenty of kids running around the house too so any suggestions must be sorta kid-friendly.

edit: I should have also mentioned that the games must be able to be played indoors.

Pictionary. But don't put couples in the same team. It can break up relationships.

Get a big glass bowl, get everyone to put there keys in, then... :P

Don't know what to suggest sorry, for a group that size I can't think of anything better than charades, or that game where you draw stuff. How about a load of Nerf guns, ha, expensive though.

I'd always go for Wii, if you have, or can borrow a projector, there is nowt like Wii-Sports on the wall. Super fun.

EDIT: Team Trivial Pursuit ftw!

Cranium tends to be fun in teams, too, and is basically a hodgepodge of popular board games for adults (not like rated-R or anything, obviously, just games that tend to be preferred by adults). Are you willing to purchase a board game, or were you really asking for more generic, don't-need-anything games like charades?

Come on, friends,

Yeah...I initially suggested that to my wife. She was not amused. I need to go post in that "has your room ever gotten cold" thread again. :)

As much as I'd like to do something Wii-related, it's just not viable. Doubly so since I would imagine all the kids will be upstairs playing it. Trivial Pursuit is an awesome game that I love playing. I have a few editions at the house. I'll have to consider it, but I think I'd like to stick to LMAO kinda games. :)

@Adam I'll check into Cranium. I've always seen it on the store shelves, but never really gave it anything more than a second glance. I don't have any problem with buying anything so board-type games would be fun too as long as they have good ROFL-factor.

I mentioned it in my first post, but if you guys haven't seen Catch Phrase before, it's an awesome game and it ends up being VERY light-hearted.

Balderdash is absolutely hilarious fun. Whether it's kid-friendly or not depends on the people playing it, so after the kids are in bed, it just gets better :D

Catch Phrase does look very fun.
