Party Board Game

It’s hard to define a party game, but you know it when you play it. They’re games that are meant to be played in large social gatherings for entertainment – we know it sounds like most games! Some common characteristics are team-based play, easy for players to learn quickly, and a lot of player interaction with each other. Popular party games include Cranium, Taboo and Scattergories. Finishit, outlined below, shows common sizes, material and components found in party games.
