See Round 1 for background blurb.

Round 1 saw us establish the BIG 13 party games. It became clear that they would dominate this tournament due to their widespread ownership/popularity (rather than they actually were necessarily the 'best' party game, though some of them may be). They were launched into an ongoing BIG 13 party game battle that will go on till the end of time.

So in a sense this is a list of the top 14-58 party games. But lets forget that.

Meta-Game
Imagine you go to a series of parties where party games are played. At each party, give a thumbsup to the game(s) you enjoy the most, feel free to comment too. Give a thumbsdown in the comments to any games you didn't enjoy.
Vote for as many games as you want at each party. The game from each party that most people enjoy will go through to the parties being held next week. Second-placed games may get through on incomprehensible Wild Card rules related to the number of votes they get compared to games in other parties.
Since in lists like this people don't usually vote for games they don't know I have included the game description and a comment from someone who has played the game and loves it - so imagine you did play it and vote accordingly. Okay this might not be science, but it could be fun! Its a party! Lets go for it! laugh

So:
1. Vote for the party game(s) you most enjoyed at each party by clicking on their thumbsup. Feel free to add comments too.
2. If you don't like playing that game, give it thumbsdown by adding a comment and saying why you don't like it.

This series of Parties end on Sunday, July 22nd at 11:00 pm BGG time.

[The games have been reseeded based on votes from round 1. Seeded games have then been split across the mini parties so that in theory the higher seeded games should meet up later in the tournament.]

This Round is OVER! Find the FINAL: Here

26. Board Game: Jungle Speed [Average Rating:6.66 Overall Rank:735]

Gail's Party

In Jungle Speed, you must rely on your keen sense of observation and quick reflexes. It requires a steady hand -- which can be hard to maintain during the many fits of maniacal laughter! The wooden Totem sits in the middle of the table, waiting for the player with the fastest reflexes to snatch it up and win the game.
Each player is dealt a hand of cards. In order to win you must be the first player to get rid of all of your cards. Each turn, all of the players reveal one of their cards. If two cards are identical, those players must make a grab for the Totem. The faster player then gives their cards to their unfortunate adversary.
To add to the difficulty, certain cards are almost identical, which can trick a hapless player into grabbing the Totem by mistake -- a grave error. Other cards force all players to make a grab at once, change the method of play, or otherwise add to the difficulty.

"Jungle Speed is even more fun than Halli Galli! The constant tension of grabbing the totem quicker than your rivals is great! After a few games the speed of card drawing gets higher and mistakes are devestating. THE best reaction game ever! "

Gail's Party

It takes more than 300 muscles to laugh, as few as five to smile and only one outrageously fun game to shine. Cranium Turbo Edition, certain to become the new party staple, cranks up the fun of the original smash-hit Cranium with more of everything - more laughter, more activities, and more moments to shine. Adding to the already popular activities of the original game, players will now find themselves making puppets of their friends, reading each others minds, noodling over uncommon facts, gazing at close-up images, and figuring out which items are not like the others, while racing against the clock. An exciting new electronic timer with music and lights energizes the game and adds a sense of urgency during the all-new Turbo Rally Rounds, during which teams must answer three questions in 60 seconds. Getting everyone laughing, smiling and high-fiving with fast-paced fun, Cranium Turbo culminates in a crazy crescendo - the Finale Rally-where teams go for the gusto by answering Turbo Rally questions from four decks, ensuring that everyone has a chance to shine. Cranium Turbo Edition includes 1,000 all-new cards; 16 activities, including six that are new, an exciting new electronic timer with music and lights and a faster paced, 3-questions-in-60-seconds Turbo Rally Rounds.

"Lots of things to do, and lots of possibilities for humor in a large group! One of the most inventive party games I've played!
Plus, the drum beat of the electronic timer has become my new theme song. "

Gail's Party

Play is in teams of two. Each person has a deck of picture cards. Each deck has the same set of pictures. There is also a deck of word cards with words like "marriage", "de facto", and "pimple".
A word is chosen and each player chooses 2-5 cards from his/her deck. Teams score points for choosing the same pictures, and score extra points for putting the pictures in the same order (from most to least important).

"His: 10 Hers: 10 - One of the best. Makes you laugh, think, wonder, make tough decisions, and feel glad you have your friends and family around you (sometimes all at once)! Gotta love that. "

29. Board Game: Catch Phrase! [Average Rating:6.41 Overall Rank:1472]

Harry's Party

Quick, rattle off as many clues until somebody on your team yells the word or phrase you want to hear. Get as physical as you want. Gesture. Say anything you want. Just keep talking. And keep passing. 'Cause if the buzzer goes off while you're holding the disk, the other guys get the point in CATCH PHRASE... the fast-passing, fast-talking game.

"This is an outstanding party game. It is hot potato or "Pass the Bomb" with words and phrases. 6 players provide a good starting energy and the more the better. We have often played with just 4. Can be humorously embarrassing when players don't know the phrase or words, however, communication frustration and efficiency is part of the game. Kids below 15 will be stumped more than 20% unless they are very well read and knowledgeable; in which case I recommend the "Kids Catchphrase." Get the electronic version and sit in a circle with alternating teams for best results. Having a large vocabulary is helpful. The entertainment is the attempt at communication and conveying ideas and having fun doing it. It underlines the uniqueness of our own personal perspective and what we see as obvious connections often really aren't. We shouldn't play more than two complete games in a row though. A great game to have for large groups. "

30. Board Game: Barbarossa [Average Rating:6.47 Overall Rank:1508]

mbmbmbmbmb
Harry's Party

The game starts with players using modeling clay to make objects which can be guessed by the other players. Players then take turns to move around the board either by rolling a die or spending gems to choose their move. The spaces landed on determine actions. Either the other players receive victory points, or you can ask a letter of an object (What's the fifth letter of that thing?), or you can ask general questions or make a single guess until you get a NO answer. Players also have three curse stones which they can throw down twice in the game and make a guess.
You make a guess by writing the word down and passing it to the owner, who answers YES or NO. If you guess right, you stick an arrow in the object, and score points (5pts if you're first, 3pts for second correct guess). In addition, and this matters, the object owner can either gain points, or lose points depending on the total arrows sticking at the time. So if you make your object too easy, or too hard, you lose points, but if you get it just right, you gain. Plus, at the game end, objects lacking arrows also lose their owners points.
Your objects must each represent a single specific word, which you note down in secret. Trying to think of two or three things which people will guess, but not too easily, is really tricky and makes Barbarossa a fun game. Hopefully the new edition has a better rules set, as players might get puzzled by the variety of actions.

"Absolutely FANTASTIC party game. This game will make you laugh so hard you will cry, but I've also heard you have to paly with the right crowd. I'm not sure if I've just been lucky, but I always have fun when I pull this game out. "

Each round, you'll have two minutes to create funny answers for a randomly generated riddle. But know your audience: One player will be judging answers instead of writing them! The judge's choices for the two best answers earn points. When the game's over, tally up your points to see who's the life of the party.

"You definitely need a funny group for this, but it is SO great when you have one. So much better than Apples to Apples. The idea behind the game is great and the rules are incredibly simple. One of the all-time greatest party games. "

Harry's Party

It's really difficult to succinctly describe this 'game.' The best way would be to call it a spatial bingo game. Each player gets a board with places for 19 hexagon tiles to place in a hexagon shape. Additionally, players get identical sets of tiles which have different types of colored/numbered lines crossing in three directions. One player draws a tile randomly and then tells the others which he drew. Each player then puts their matching tile on their board in any available spot. This is repeated until the board is filled. The object is to complete same colored/numbered lines across your board, which can be really tricky when the drawing player refuses to draw the tile that you want!

"Always fun - especially near the end when everyone needs a very specific tile to come up. But I think the thing I like most about this game is it's rather silly name. On the hand, what else would you call it? "

Irene's Party

The PASSWORD game is based on the old TV Game Show from the 60's and 70's (and maybe latter). There were many editions printed - starting in 1962. Each edition featured a different set of words (although later anniversary editions used words from previous sets). The object is for one teammate to get the other teammate to say the password given a series of clues. Each time a clue is given, the other player can guess the password - if they get it right the team scores. If they get it wrong, the other team gets to try a clue word. It goes back and forth - the score you get is higher if you guess it on the first clue - reduced by one point for each incorrect guess. As a clue-giver you can only say one word (non hyphenated) so you need to find the "definitive" clue.

"A classic! One of the great party games of all time. I always have fun playing this game."

Irene's Party

This frantic game is a wonderful exercise in word-summoning. In it, players try to come up with a word that contains a certain sequence of letters before the ticking time-bomb in their hands explodes. The bomb is an electronic timer with a variable time allotment, and a player is only allowed to pass the bomb to the next person when he comes up with a word that contains the needed letters. While creative spelling of the words in question can be frowned upon, it's up to the guy next to you to determine your fate.

"Great word party game. That ticking bomb adds an incredible amount of pressure - which usually means your mind goes blank when it's your turn to guess a word. "

Players take turns thinking up definitions for words given to them by the electronic Thingamajig. You score a point for every player who correctly guesses your word. But if everyone gets it, you score nothing.

"This is a brilliant game, made more brilliant by the fact that it plays equally well with people of all abilities. Absolutely must be played with the "'this OR that' is not allowed" variant. "

Using any combination of the 72 cards with various shapes on them (such as a cross, various sized circles, wavy lines, etc...), players take turns trying to convey one of the words on a "squint" card. The words have varying degrees of difficulty, from one to three points. Any of the non-building players can guess what the word is. If a player guesses the word before the timer runs out, both the "builder" and guesser receive points.

"Lots of fun. It's a perfect game to play while you're waiting for the rest of the group to arrive or as a filler between long games. Nearly everyone I've played it with has liked it so far. "

Party/trivia game centered around the idea of players collectively naming items on a list (e.g. "10 US states with most shoreline"). As players, in turn, miss an item, they acquire penalty points (forward movement on the game board). When a player reaches the end of the track, the person who advanced the least is the winner.

"Best R&R game available. Very good party game which does not require extra activity (writing, acting, etc). Works well with just about anyone. "

So we had a pebble, a tooth brush, a fork, a lighter, a toy soldier, a die and two or three other items, and each player in turn had to use them to have the other guess an answer in a list of five such as Snow White and the seven Dwarves, the Sleeping Beauty, Little Red Riding Hood, The Brave Little Tailor, Cinderella. Like with some other games of the kind, such as the fantastic Wat und Dat, you don't believe it will work - and it works wonderfully.

"Probably my favourite party game so far. It doesn't require any special skills like signing or drawing (Cranium) or some sort of judge/vote/group think (like Apples to apples, big idea, etc.), just some cool imagination! Changing the objects in the middle of the game is also a neat idea, it guarantees that every game will always play very differently."

Zen's Party
Poor Zen and his friends arrived late and the games cupboard had been raided by all the other parties. They took the best games they could find from what was left. The highest scoring of these games can only go through under Wild Card rules.

One person serves as moderator, and devises a secret set of scoring rules and prepares a number of colored cards for use as scoring markers. The moderator starts the game by handing each player a sealed envelope containing a small number of colored cards and a couple of scoring rules such as "Orange cards are worth twice the value of blue cards" and "Each white card is worth 5 points unless the player turns in any black cards, in which case white cards are worthless." Players may trade cards and/or information in an attempt to acquire the most valuable hand of cards, all or some of which must be turned in to the moderator at a specified time. When the deadline passes, the moderator scores each player's cards based on all the scoring rules, and the highest score wins.

"The finest icebreaker at the beginning of a convention. Haggle forces you to talk to everyone. I played my first haggle in 1982, and its a wornderful, wonderful game. "

Zen's Party
Poor Zen and his friends arrived late and the games cupboard had been raided by all the other parties. They took the best games they could find from what was left.

Haste Worte is a party/word game from Wolfgang Kramer and Michael Kiesling. Each turn players have 30 seconds to write as many answers for the category or question that round. After 30 seconds expire, players must bid on how many unique answers they have on their list. Bids are revealed simultaneously with players having the lowest bids reading their answers first. Any answer already named gets crossed of a players list before they get a chance to take their turn. Players score points equal to their bids if they make it and the first one around the board wins.

"Wow, I remember when I liked games like Outburst. Then I played them a few times and realized that most of the time you win based on getting the right card for your knowledge. Then I played Scatagories, but I grew board of it quickly. Of those types of word games Boggle is about the only game I still play.
Haste Worte though, combines elements of all of those games, and adds a fantastic auctioning mechanism. You auction the points you plan to score, ala hearts. Of course those that predict a lower score get to go first and eliminate words they picked from your list. Fantastic fun.
In my mind it is the perfect party game undoubtedly this is the best I've played in its category. "

How closely do you see Eye to Eye with your friends and family? Draw a category card and write down three answers, trying to match at least one person for each item you write down. The person who matches the most answers with the other players will win the game!

What do you do if you are supposed to quickly draw the left side of Queen Elizabeth II? You draw half a crown, a dress ... but already everybody but you has shouted stop and you only just started to draw the Queen's face. And you still wanted to draw Buckingham Palace in the left corner ... Now it's up to your left neighbor to save you both. Unfortunately, you hear her mourning once she reads whom she's supposed to draw. But maybe some good idea will strike her?
4 and more players try simultaneously to recognizably draw one side of a person chosen before. If you are ready, you shout "Stop!". The slowest player must not finish. Fold the sheet, and let your left neighbor complete the right side of the person chosen - without looking at the left side.

"A wonderful "drawing" party game, really funny, even if it doesn't really seem like a game at all when you read only the rules."

Zen's Party
Poor Zen and his friends arrived late and the games cupboard had been raided by all the other parties. They took the best games they could find from what was left

The Party Game where everyone is an animal.......or at least sounds like one!
Get ready for laughter as your friends and family suddenly start sounding like they were born in a barn!
In Snorta each player chooses the sound of a typical farm animal and the fun begins. As players quickly flip over cards, tongue-tied players stumble and stutter to blurt out the animal sounds of the other players. Before long your barnyard fills with bales of laughter.

"A hit and a winner! Our new most-fun family game. Have played with both adults and children, and everyone immediately wants to play it again. It plays as fast or slow as we wish and ends up with everyone laughing. "
