So... I'm a best man and I'm in charge of the planning the bachelor party. The Groom wants to make it a gaming night with board games and video games and pizza. Nothing fancy or wild.

At the same time planning for this I've gotten bitten by the board game bug. I went and purchased Settlers of Catan, Small World and Zombie dice.

I own many of the classics like Monoploy and Life, etc. The wife gave me the green light to purchase games for the party so what games would you recommend for 8-10 guys hanging out for a bacholar party- all with varied levels of gaming experience. I assume not everyone will be playing so it doesn't have to be for 8-10 players and in my house I can have 3 tables going at the same time (meaning we can play more than one game at a time).

I look forward to the help and suggestions you all will offer the party is at the end of June 2012. Please only include games that are in production and easily purchased through US suppliers. Thanks in advanced

See this text? It's a gratuitous waste of GeekGold.

The game itself isn't important. Spending time intellectually jousting with likeminded folks is the real reason to game.

This is perfect for what you're trying to do. It plays 8-10 quite well, is easy to teach, and is quick to play while also having lots of good decisions.

Sure to result in a roomful of tasteless laughs and innuendo. This game was made for bachelor/bachelorette parties. And it's free to print-and-play.

Also free to P-n-P, all you need are some dice, cups, and one of many free scoresheets available on BGG. In return you get a GREAT game.

Still one of my favorite party games - works best when everyone knows each other (to some extent at least)

Trivia game where everyone writes down their answer then its revealed and sorted on the game board. Then everyone bets on the one they think is correct (you don't have to be on your own) and each space on the game board has betting odds. Trivia + gambling..good times

I had a lot of success featuring this game at a bachelor party about three years ago. It only supports seven but it is cooperative play so everyone had a good time working together (we chose to not play with a traitor as it was a new game to all but two of us). It was suprisingly easy to teach to all the players and everyone said that they enjoyed it and would have played it again had we not had to get some sleep because of some silly wedding ceremony the next day.

Good luck and congratulations to your friend!

A combination of trivia game, memory game and charades. Has lead to some of the most laugh-out-loud gaming memories of my life.

Just go whole-hog now and buy all three expansions, so it plays up to eight. But fair warning, they won't want to play anything else once they start this.

I don't know whether you're into sports but if so, then this is a blast for a group even as large as yours.

If you want a flicking game then look no further than Pitch Car.

Lots of cheering, jeering, trash talk. And general mayhem. Great fun.

A great party game you can play with just pens and paper. For best results, add alcohol.
