My friends and I have been playing more games when we hangout and we want to find some new ones suitable for our 4-6 people group. We’ve played Zombie Dice, Fluxx, Cards Against Humanity and some other more casual games but we aren’t opposed to branching out to slightly more complicated games. Any suggestions?June 13, 2013 at 4:40 pm #967
Hi claybrain! I think you might be interested in Gloom, a card based game that has a few expansions that can allow you to have 6 players. The goal is to give your family a terrible life through event cards, which give you a negative score, and happy events to your opponents family members, giving them positive points. After one family is completely killed off, whoever has the most miserable dead family members is the winner. The game has interesting artwork and encourages story telling for how each event came to happen to the family members.
The Resistance is always really fun too. If you’ve ever played Werewolf, it’s kind of similar. Your group is the resistance but there will be some among you that are assigned to be spies. You’ll need to try to figure out who the spies are before you fail too many missions and the spies win.
For a more complex cooperative game, I suggest Space Cadets. Each player will be assigned the duties of a specific officer on board your ship. Through teamwork you’ll work towards the goal which changes and can be to gather space crystals or combating alien ships.
Hope this helps!June 13, 2013 at 5:17 pm #968
Thanks! I have seen Gloom online but I wasn’t aware they had expansions. The other 2 I had not heard of but I will look for them!June 13, 2013 at 5:46 pm #969
I’ll throw in a suggestion for Munchkin, you’ve probably seen it everywhere, they even sell it at target now.
It’s a card game where you go adventuring and fight monsters. For each monster you defeat you gain a level and the first person to reach level 10 wins. It’s easy to pick up and not very serious.
I’ve been enjoying Carcassonne as of late. You build up a landscape using tiles with different features (cities, roads, fields, etc.) and point values. The player with the most points wins.
There are a ton of expansions for both of these games.
I would also recommend watching Table Top You might see something on there that catches your fancy.July 28, 2013 at 9:36 pm #1333
+1 for Gloom and Munchkin.
If any of you like deck building games (or used to, but got out because of the cost…), I’d Highly recommend Dominion. It’s a card game where everybody actively builds their decks from the same stock of cards. It’s got a lot of differently themed expansions that can all be mixed and matched, so there’s a lot of potential interactions to keep it fresh.July 29, 2013 at 12:09 am #1335
I’d suggest “Settlers of Catan”, essentially the college version of Monopoly, you enjoy it, but it always makes you hate the people you play with.
