Party games - the red-headed stepchild of BGG. And also the most likely games that we are likely to play with normal people.

I took the ranked games from the Party Games subdomain and sorted them by year. I amalgamated some years where there weren't many.
For each year you can choose the best Party game. Feel free to decry the games and rant about why they aren't actually party games - go on, get it off your chest!

The game entry for each year is the highest ranked game in the bracket.

The results of this list have been taken and used here:

Not many games, but probably quite a tight contest.
