What is the best board game for a group of tipsy 20-somethings to play?

I'm having a smallish party with drinks & snacks, and want to have a fun board game on hand in case people aren't mingling (there are a few people outside of my regular "group" coming). We're a bunch of mid-to-late 20-somethings, leaning towards the geeky side (mostly engineers with a few liberal artsy folks like myself).
I have found that Trivial Pursuit (regular & pop culture editions) seem to take too long, Cranium seems kind of played out, and no one likes Monopoly.
I'm more than happy to buy a new game - the only criteria are that it can't rely on a television as ours will not be working (I know some games have DVDs etc) and that it has to be fun.
So...what do you recommend, and why?
