    You've listed some good ones already, so I don't have a lot of additional recommendations. Really depends a lot on the people coming over, and how much time you have (and the level of patience/non-agressiveness ;) ) of the players. You know you are playing a great game when at some point in the evening there is very heated 'discussions.' :lol: And when it comes to teams, well, you can increase that by a factor. And if it's couples..... well, certainly expect a fight or two. :mrgreen:

    Jungle Speed has been a big and enduring hit at our board-game nights. Lots of fast paced action.

    You can actually download all of the cards for free for cards against humanity at their site http://cardsagainsthumanity.com/ . They even give helpful advice as to how to have them printed. While it is a great party game, it does get a little stale after you've seen all of the cards multiple times. At least they keep making expansions for it. I know that King of Tokyo, Takenoko, Discworld, Small World, and Elder Sign are all excellent games.

    Couple of other games to look into:
    Mwahahaha
    Epic Spell Wars
    Ascension
    Quarriors
    Cthulhu Gloom
    Hacker
    Chez Geek
    Red Dragon Inn
    Give Me the Brain
    And if you have a whole day to kill...
    Descent
    OR
    Arkham Horror (and if your a masochist, use all the expansions! :twisted: )

    I saw this on BoardGameGeek website. I haven't played it but I like the theme:

    GODZILLA: KAIJU WORLD WARS will recreate all the action with the kaiju of the famous Toho (licensed) movies. Kaiju will battle kaiju . . .and humans . . . to destroy cities and each other. The game uses a unique Battle Card system to resolve combat. The first game will include Godzilla, Gigan, Rodan and King Ghidorah.

    These are the ones that are either really popular with my group or I enjoy but they haven't gotten much table time yet.
