10 crowd-pleasing tabletop games for your next party

A good party game has to fulfill certain criteria. It must very easy to teach and play, and support a large number of players. Party games don't need to be limited to thinly-veiled icebreakers, however. And they should definitely be (mostly) playable while drinking.
