Party games suck, right?

My experience has been that party games are usually pretty lame. We're having a Halloween party for about 40 people, though, and I like the idea of having miscellaneous "areas" set up throughout the house (it's a big house) with various activities to help keep things light and entertaining...

We've got a movie room, for example, and I'll have MAME running on the big screen for anyone who wants to play a game (default will be Ghosts & Goblins, of course). We'll probably have a Halloween-themed game of Cornhole set up in the back yard (body parts, etc...). Another friend suggested a fortune teller...
Any other ideas for stand-alone activity-type stuff that doesn't require the host(s) to have everybody "...gather around so we can play a party game!"?
Also, it's an adult party, so drinking is great...but I kind of think a lot of "drinking games" have the same sort of forced feel about them (you have to explain the rules, etc...). I'm looking for the kinds of things that would be self-explanatory enough that two people can just walk up and start playing around with whatever it is while they talk and enjoy a drink.
