I need suggestions for games (video or otherwise) for large groups

I teach MBAs entrepreneurship, but also do research on video games. I was thinking of creating an entirely optional night session (maybe with drinks) that would focus on playing games that would be fun and maybe include teachable moments for 15-30 students. I was thinking of starting with Space Team, and then doing an improv game around crazy business pitches, but I am looking for other ideas. The games need to be easy to play with large groups (or small teams off a large group), be high energy, not be inappropriate for grad students, and have some sort of vague businesses point (improvisation, teamwork, leadership, dealing with ambiguity, etc.). Any ideas?

Wii group games?

Buying a Wii game for my parents. They have the sports and resort games, I'd like it to be something that multiple people can play, ideally at a party, as that's when they use it the most. Great group Wii games?

GoAway Parties- Launching the kids into new adventures...

Party up ahead. Humbly requesting ideas for ritual activities; can range from high concept to downright soppy. Two couples leaving (launching), one to law and physical therapy schools and one couple with a 3 year old going to live in Bhutan for 6 months. All family, all leaving on the same day. You won't be able to swing a cat and not hit a road-map or inflatable globes, maps and old photos but I'm searching for memorable and heck, maybe even meaningful activities (and food and drink, and speeches, and songs and skits.... ) there's a lot riding on this so please let me thank you in advance for your generous additions. {Both couples in early 30's.}
