We've been playing NBA Jam a bunch lately when the friends are over.  The only downside is that I only have a 2player layout so they have to be on the same team.  Unless someone knows how to make it so you can play against one another...

Remap the player 2 controls to player 3 controls just for NBA JAM.

Check the dipswitches through MAME's tab menu. An option for a 2-player cabinet can be found there.

Another interesting game for parties...if you're willing to help instruct people is "Ganbare Ginkun". It's all in Japanese, but the challenges are pretty fun to figure out and a total blast to play once you know what to do. One of the "challenges" involves you as a baby cherub trying to aim your "pee" in order to put out a fuse and stop of bomb from detonation. From what I can gather from the animations, it looks like the whole point of the game is to impress girls with your skill or something.

It's an *INSANE* kinda game, but that's the sort of stuff I like. My friends and I have a strange sense of humor.
