Could someone please recommend a really funny game that has a great replay-value?

Much appreciated.

Time's Up!, Why Did the Chicken...?, or Ca$h 'n Gun$. These all result in a lot of humor with my family.

I do most of my laughing at the people I'm playing a game with. Or even sometimes when we're not playing a game.

Y'know, if the group is in just the right mood, (You know, at the end of the gaming night, everybody loopy and drained and tired and maybe had a beer or two) Modern Art can be really, really hilarious.

Especially if people get into character and really try to sell their paintings...

I'd agree with Beyond Balderdash. Although the game I laughed at the most recently was Cloud 9.

Since you're in Sweden, Celebrities, the public domain version of Time's Up!, might be a better choice than Time's Up! since with Celebrities you make up your own celebrities for each game. Time's Up! might be a bit America-centric.

Quelf . It's a family game that has you doing really ridiculous things. I had to Salute the person I wanted to speak to and say "Yes Sir!" or "No Sir" before I was allowed to speak. And that was an easy rule!

Pit is also fun. Sometimes it's hard to play for all the laughter that goes on.

I love Quelf. It could also be a drinking game (for example, one rule was that you always have to hold something larger than your fist in your left hand - the obvious choice is a beer or other drink), but I imagine it works well as a family game (that is to say with kids) as well.

I'll second The Big Idea. I played it for the first time with my family over the holidays. They were hesitant to play it at first, but it turned out to be a riot. Also, I strongly recommend getting the expansion as well. The more cards you get, the more replay value the game will have.

I second Apples to Apples, especially if you are playing with a larger group.

Tales of the Arabian Nights was the first game that came to mind for me... Z-Man is supposedly doing it up in English this year.

Mag Blast, 3rd edition.

Pit and Liar's Dice are also games that encourage the hilarity.

Vote Apples to Apples. It constantly makes people laugh when it comes out after dinner etc., even the non-gamers

It is available in Swedish at most toy stores (at least in Uppsala). It is called "Lika som Bär" in swedish, and published by Tactic.

Well worth the investment, though it is a bit pricey at ~299 kr.
