I just stumbled onto this group from some random place, and figured I'd say hi and maybe ask for some ideas. My room mates and I decided to have a "game night" to give our old (read: late 20s/early 30s) a reason to leave their houses. We've been doing it about a year now. We started with poker, but ended up with board games 'cause people dont like losing money.
We've done Trivial Pursuit (great, but i wish the questions were up to date), Pictionary (current fave), Cranium (fun, but the rules are CONFUSING!) and Monopoly (only once, it takes too long).
What games (old or new) are you guys enjoying that are easy, fun and have rules that aren't so complicated... AND is there a decent trivia game like Trivial Pursuit with modern(ish) questions? The versions of TP that are out now all look pretty terrible...
