Call for submissions: party games birthday edition 2012

(Image found on Google Image Search: not an accurate representation of the author)

I turn 25 on Saturday, and what better way to celebrate my impending mortality than by playing childish party games?

I have a collection of party games I’ve played over the years, but always appreciate more! So consider this an open call for you to tell me about your favourites, or just to make something up on the spot and try to convince me “it’s a classic”.

A party game generally fulfills some/all of the following restrictions:
  • played in one room
  • quick to explain, playable in about 5-10 minutes
  • playable with 5 – 15+ players

The above set of guidelines is very flexible however: there are probably games which are perfect despite not having any of those qualities.

So: let’s have some games please? Thanks!

(By the way, if we know each other and you’d like to come along, please do! It’ll be in Coventry on Saturday 7th July: contact me for more details.)
