Adult drinking games - is there any money in it?

I often see various card games for adults to play while enjoying a few drinks (although I'm yet to come across any that are any good!!).

So my questions are:

1. Is there a sizeable market for adult (18+) games?
2. Which games are the most successful and why?
3. Are there any specific legal considerations that need to be taken into account?

Regards

PS How does a game like Beer! make money!? I'm sure I can come up with a better game! But can I make money out of it? Hmmmmm. Beeeeer!?

Beirut being, arguably, the greatest amongst these for a variety of factors, not the least of which is my almost undefeated status in the game after over a decade.

Regarding question 3 (disclaimer: I am not a lawyer and this does not constitute legal advice), I don't think you'd be any more liable than the maker of a bartending guide or book of drink recipes. If you wanted to be safe, you could consult a lawyer about a suitable disclaimer to print visibly in the rules or on the box.

Yeah, that's what I'm thinking too.

If anyone does know about any specific legal issus relating to adult games I'd be grateful if you could post them or some links here.

Also, has anyone got market data on this sector or might know where it can be found? In fact, is there any data out there on the Board and Card Game industry?

Cheers and beers

I don't have any hard data...

but my guess is that drinking games fall pretty much in the novelty section of gaming.

There are so many "parlour game" varieties of drinking games out there for free, one would have to have a good gimmick/conept to get someone to pay money.

Now if you devised a "normal" game, and added your own official "drinking game rules" it might help (or hinder) your game sales depending on your marketing.

Just so thoughts though from a non-expert.
