The Best Party Games
- Tony Ackroyd(1000rpm)United Kingdom
This list contains the best Party games I could find on BGG. Some of these aren't considered Party games by some, Ca$h n Gun$ and Family Business being obvious examples. I have also included some of the most popular games that the average man in the street would think a party game to see how they fare. I've included Trivial Pursuit despite a severe allergy to it as this is a game that the mass public might call a party game. A lot of these games came from this previous list:

Feel free to add if you think I have missed a great party game
I've added some useful information on game: best number of players, how popular they are (number of plays) and whether they are Free (but am probably not aware of a lot of free versions - please correct me). I've also included a comment (or two) from a fan of the game.
I have sorted them based on a Combined rating. Points are awarded for 3 categories: Rating, Ranking and #Plays. Points are awarded based on where that game comes after sorting all the games on this list by each of those scores. Low points are good and the games were then be sorted by their TOTAL points. You'll get the idea.
Unlike other lists I've done I haven't given a bonus for games that have a Free version, this is primarily because I suspect that lots of these games have a free version that I am not aware of.
If any new games are added to the list I will score them relative to the other games on the list and sort them on that basis.
