This is a charade based game that can be played with teams of two or more players, before you start the game, each player looks at a set of cards that feature historical and fictional characters, and have to choose some of them. The cards they choose are shuffled into a deck, and are used for the first three rounds of the game. During the rounds, team members have to try and get their other teammates to guess as many names as possible in 30 seconds. The rules change as the rounds do, in the first round you can give as many clues as you want, in the second round, you are limited to one word, and in the third round, you can’t use any words at all. This is a fun game to play, especially if you have large groups of people around.
#4 Say Anything
Say anything can be played with up to eight people; it is a game where you can say anything, like the name suggests. There is a judge that will be appointed by the players in each round, who will ask questions from a card that they draw, each player writes an answer on a piece of paper of dry erase board, and leave it face up. They have to guess which answer the judge will like the most, and earn a point for each correct guess. The person with the most points at the end of the game wins.

Each guessed word is worth a point, and each spoken or mouthed word costs the team a point. The team with the most points at the end wins.
#1 Cards Against Humanity
This is probably the best party board game in 2016, but you have to have a wicked sense of humor to enjoy it. Cards against humanity is made with adults in mind, so don’t play this game with kids. Even the creators call it a party game for horrible people, so be prepared for some despicable questions and answers. It can be played in a small group of three people, and in a large group of about 20. The players get to select 10 answers from the white cards, and use those cards to answer questions from the black cards which the Card Czar will ask. The player whose answer is selected will keep the black card and is awarded a point. The Card Czar also changes after each round.
