I do 90% of my gaming with family. One of the things I have come to find is that party games work the best with my in-laws, because we often have a large group and they are usually too distracted to listen to a long list of rules.

So I have gone in search of more good quality party games. Unfortunately when I entered into BGG advanced search to find ranked party games, I found an abundance of games I either already own or have never heard about.

Please educate me...I have included the current Top 50 highest ranked party games (boy do party games ever get the shaft in the rankings!) I will note if I own the games. Any comments you could share whether thumbsup or thumbsdown on the others would be greatly appreciated.

This is like another game, isn't it?

I seem to remember reading that this is just another name for some other game...what would that game be?

I own this game.

It's OK, but my family doesn't know some of the items on the cards, and so we have to house rule around those. Also the bigger-than, smaller-than activity sails right over many players' heads.

Completely superfluous.

I enjoy the Time's Up! version only because it avoids duplicate names, and keeps people from ruining the game by putting in stupid names.

Snorta is in the top 2 for popularity amongst the teens at church. They absolutely adore the way this game plays. It's fun for me occasionally, and those components really draw in a crowd.

I'm a bit skeptical of this game

I've seen it before on the shelves at a local toy store, and I've been tempted. I'm a fan of Out of the Box games, but this just doesn't look that exciting.

It's a pretty enjoyable game. I'm surprised how much better this has gotten as I've played it more. Some of the subject matter is still a little heavy, though, for this light style of game.
