But parties often have large numbers of people, there is often drinking involved, maybe some food to be found somewhere and lots of people to chat too. All these factors can make finding a game to play a little tricky.
But where there is a will there is a way, and that way is Party games!
We discuss what we think makes a good party game (and what doesn't) and give a couple examples of some of our favourite games including talking about some that we got to play at an actual party the night before.
As always we also discuss the games we have been playing this week including Province, Saboteur 2 and New Angeles in particular if some of those games have some superfluous roles!
Keep up with us the rest of the week by following us on social media - find links at the bottom of the page and check out the Inside Voices Network for other podcasts at insidevoicenetwork.com.
