Howdy!

I'm looking for easy board games for my church's high school youth group where the teens can enter and leave the game at any time. For example, we've had good luck with Apples To Apples (New players get a hand and they join the rotation), and and Catch Phrase (each player plays for themselves, and if the word is guessed, both the guesser and describer get a point).

What other games would be good for our group?

Thanks!

Pretty much any party game should work:
* PDQ
* My Word
* Word on the Street
* Backseat Drawing
* Luck of the Draw
* Crappy Birthday
* Say Anything

Fluxx would also work well.

Fluxx's rules have a section for people to join mid-game. Basically they're dealt a hand, and that's it. One could as easily jump out of the game.
I wouldn't say Fluxx is a very good game, but it's mindless fun. The Fluxx family has heaps of different versions of Fluxx.
Also, there's even a Christian Fluxx expansion (among other small card expansions), to add a little variety to the game.

I'd also recommend games in the Ubongo Series. Can't say how to handle scoring when players are jumping in and out, but each round takes less than a minute, and it's fun puzzle solving. I personally love Ubongo 3-D, which is also a very attractive game.

EDIT: Ninja'd with the Fluxx!

You may want to check out Train of Thought; it works very well for players jumping in and out of the game.
