No, I've never played. I prefer simple games like connect four :)
And apples to apples is a very fun "relaxed" drinking game
I used to play it quit a lot - we had game nights that included Diplomacy, Risk, Emperor of China, and many that no one here heard of (and I can't remember). Speaking of drinking games - we drank so many different kinds of booze you would not believe; we smoked pot - sometimes we played high on acid (now those were really colorful games!).
The 70s were a well mis-spent decade.
Would not say the 70s were mis-spent, they were colorful indeed!
