What is the best bar game?

The best bar games are the ones that are quick and get more people evolved. Games like Skee-Ball, darts and two up are popular because they are quick and get lots of people involved.

Pool and Foosball are long and all your focus is on two people, they are great games but people can loose interest when they are not playing.
