Once a year, I go on a "fishing trip" with many of my male relatives. We call it a fishing trip because we stay at a fishing club, but the only reason anyone actually goes fishing is because they've got so drunk they don't know what they're doing. That happens. The fishing club also has a TV, so we take along our own adult DVDs and play them while we're drinking beer and eating meat and potatoes and arguing about politics. It's a brilliant time.

Of course, the question is, what game could I play with these guys? The problems I am dealing with are (a) short attention span, (b) players potentially falling asleep, (c) alcohol may be spilled, (d) extreme reluctance to pay attention to anything except half-naked women. And, of course, it must be a good game.

Please add the games you think are appropriate (or inappropriate, as the case may be). Games which are not offensive enough may be deleted at the list creator's discretion. This list is sorted by rank.

How about this one? Beer and betting on horses could work. Not sure about the water (or beer) proof qualities of the game. Bid chips are played face down and therefore secret if someone’s chip gets marked it would make their bet obvious. Yup sod it, Busen Memo gets my vote!

Just surrender to this.

Even better, secretly drink alcohol-free lager (I'm assuming you get that in the states), and then hustle your drunk friends.

It's likely my second cousin Jason would destroy this game for its name alone, and I don't know if it's actually naughty enough to keep the guys interested past the title. But I figured it would be added sooner or later anyway, so I did it myself.

This and/or lunch money have been big hits with all the non gamers I have introduced them too.

I have not actually played this, but the game does double as actual working coasters for your beer. Of course, on a boys night, they may also object to using coasters, too.

I'm not sure how well the furries would be received, but in general this game has the sort of anatomy I'm thinking of. How does it play?

Finally, a list where Busen Memo actually belongs! I actually don't like memory games very much. Is it much fun?

The only problem with this may be the guys groping the cards a bit too aggressively. And I've heard it's not a good game. But is it fun?

The guys I'm thinking of are grown-up enough to deal with this - many of them have grandkids. There's not many pictures of this game in the database, so I don't know how graphic it gets. And where can I get it?
