MB Games Twister
Advantages: Simple premise, cheap, active
Disadvantages: Mat can only accomodate 4 players
Twister is a classic party game that is almost as fun for drunk adults as it is for the considerably more energetic and flexible kids! The game is a mixture of strength, balance, flexibility and skill and because everyone is literally tangled up on the mat together it is great fun guaranteeing giggles.
The mat has 4 different colours on it, and there is a four by four grid featuring four circles of each colour. The host, who can play but it is easier if they don't, spins the spinner that has been provided - an instruction is shouted out to the first person based on where the spinner stops - left/right foot/hand on one of the colours - you then place that hand or foot on any unoccupied circle. This repeats for every person, over and over again until only one person is left and the others have collapsed.
The great thing about this game is adults won't really play it for a winner so people can jump in and out of a game in-between drinks and share the fun. Kids find it easier to manoeuvre due to being smaller and hence having more ways they can sneak a hand through to that last unoccupied blue circle.
For less than a tenner, this is great value family/friends fun, but a bigger grid version would be good for parties.
Summary: A party classic
