What to look for in a great adult party game

Adult Content: Some games have a lot of adult content and language. Make sure people don’t mind, and that kids are not around!

Drinking breaks: Does the game allow for intermittent breaks, where losers have to drink? Read the rules or reviews about the gameplay and whether it can be used as a drinking game.
Participants: A good party game allows a lot of people to attend, and that people can leave to and join the game. This will happen at parties!
