So last Saturday we hosted a game night with 7 people. And we ended up having to split the table into a 3 player and 4 player game because we didn’t want to play party games like Codenames or Crazy Words all night. What we played then was Black Angel and Pax Transhumanity … those were at the upper end of complexity that is acceptable for our group.
So what I am looking for are games that work at player counts beyond 4 or 5 (although 5 can be tricky, we’re equipped to handle that). We have plenty of quick games as mentioned above, plus roll & writes and a couple of hidden role games… but sometimes we just want to play a strategy game that still works with more players. Caveats: Except for 1 person we’re not into war games and several players are not into coop games…
- 7 Wonders which got played so much it needs a rest
- Robo Ralleye which needs to be back on the table definitely
- Dune which plays 6 and hasn’t been on the table - yet.
What cool games am I missing out on? What do you do when you invite all your gamer friends and surprisingly they all reply with “I’ll be there” instead of “Sorry I’m busy”
Thanks ahead for your recommendations
