Party games are games which share several features suitable to entertaining a social gathering of moderate size. This page will list common party games and a brief description of how the game is played. Use this as a guide when planning your next birthday, get-together or holiday party.
Party games are games that some people play as forms of entertainment at social gatherings. Party games usually involve more than one player.

The party game may merely be intended as an ice breaker, or the sole purpose for the party.
List and Description of Common Party Games:

1000 Blank White Cards - See How to play the game -
is a party game played with cards in which the deck is created as part of the game. Though it has been played by adults in organized groups in several cities and college campuses, 1000 Blank White Cards is described as well-suited for children in Hoyle's Rules of Games. Since the bulk of the rules are contained on the cards (rather than existing as all-encompassing rules or in a rule book), 1000 Blank White Cards can be considered a sort of nomic. It can be played by any number of players and ......

30 Seconds - is a fast-paced general knowledge game. Players generally play in teams of two or four. One player must guess a word from their teammate's explanation, much like Charades, with the aim to guess as many possible answers in 30 seconds. The main restriction on the explanation is that it may not contain the actual word or part of the word.

Apples to Apples -  is a party game for four to ten players and played for 30–60 minutes. Apples to Apples was chosen by Mensa International in 1999 as a "Mensa Select" prizewinner, an award given to five games each year. It was also named "Party Game of the Year" in the December 1999 issue of Games magazine and received the National Parenting Center's seal of approval in May 1999.

Articulate! - is a fast talking description board game from Drumond Park, for 4 to 20+ players aged 12 and up. Articulate players describe words from different categories to their team as quickly as possible. The teams move round the board based on the number of words correctly guessed, and occasional spinner bonuses. Each round is 30 seconds long. Word topics include Object, Nature, Random, Person, Action and World. The object of the game is to get to the end before the other team.

Beer pong - See How to play the game - 
also known as Beirut, is a drinking game in which players throw a ping pong ball across a table with the intent of landing the ball in a cup of beer on the other end. The game typically consists of two teams of two players each with 10 cups set up in a triangle formation on each side. Each team then takes turns attempting to shoot ping pong balls into the opponent's cups. If a ball lands in a cup (known as a 'make'), the contents of that cup are consumed by the other team and the cup is removed from the table. The first team to eliminate all of the opponent's cups is the winner.

Botticelli - See How to play the game -  
is a guessing game which requires the players to have a good knowledge of biographical details of famous people. The game has several variants, but the common theme is that one person or team thinks of a famous person, reveals their initial letter, and then answers yes/no questions to allow other players to guess the identity.

Buck buck - see wikipedia
also known as "Johnny on a Pony", is a children's game with several variants. One version of the game is played when "one player climbs another’s back" and the climber guesses "the number of certain objects out of sight." Another version of the game is played with "one group of players [climbing] on the backs of a second group in order to build as large a pile as possible or to cause the supporting players to collapse."

Strip games - are party games, usually involving more than one player, where players remove clothes when they lose a card hand, points in a game, or otherwise fail to come out ahead. Most board games, card games, sports, or other games, can be adopted to create a stripping variant. A classic example is strip poker, the strip variant of poker. Strip games can be played by single-sex groups or by mixed groups in social situations. Strip games are intended to generate an atmosphere of fun, and to lighten the social atmosphere by the removal of clothing. Sometimes such games are played to heighten the sexual atmosphere. Like other adult or adolescent party games, activities besides removing clothing and playing cards might be involved. ("Truth or Dare?" type options are often included.)
