questionswhat are good table top games for six or moreā€¦


Poker...Texas Hold 'em....:)


You said you like Munchkin. I am a fan of Munchkin as well and a friend introduced me to a game called Killer Bunnies, a game he described as Muchkin on steroids. KB has become a personal favorite of mine and when the game get stale or too there are too many players just add in another expansion pack.


For six, definitely Betrayal at House on the Hill. Starts out the same as every bad horror movie: come upon a creepy old house, and your group decides to stay, split up, and explore it. Basically every game is different, and there's 50 scenarios that can happen depending on the dice and how you explore the house. It's pretty great.

Just leaving work now, but I'll see if I can think of any others on the way home :)


Wits & Wagers is a really fun, light game that can handle large groups. I think it comes with materials for 6 or 7, but it's really easy to pair people up, or to make your own materials. It's a trivia game where you don't have to know the right answer.

7 Wonders is one I haven't played, but I've heard is great up to its max (7?). It's a game that's a little more complex, but I've heard is pretty light when compared to other strategy games. Pretty accessible.

Apples to Apples (or Cards Against Humanity, depending on the group and what it takes to offend each participant) are good light filler games that can handle any number of players.


Our favorites are "crayon" rails:
Empire Builder
Australia Rails
Iron Dragon
Lunar Rails
Mars Rails, etc (there are at least a dozen of these, some of the boards are tight for 6, though)

Rail Baron (similar to Monopoly, but with railroads)

Zombie Fluxx
Pirate Fluxx, other Fluxx

Have you tried Starfarers of Catan, Seafarers of Catan and Knights and Cities?

Have you ever played Advanced Civilization? It's very hard to get anymore but it's one of my favorite games and has a lot in common with Settlers. It will take up to 8 (or 9?) players. Avalon Hill used to make really first class board games for people who like to think.

For really big groups we like Scruples, Ink Blotz, and Charades. If you are a role player is is fun to play Scruples in character.


Correction, Civ takes up to 7 players. There's also Parker Brothers game Pit which says it is for up to 7 players, but I have seen played with multiple decks with maybe 50 people playing, and the French car racing card game Milles Bourne which you can play with four teams of two (although you may want an extra deck). When I was younger we'd play with two or three decks and have four or five two person teams playing Canasta.


Dominion is another cool one


I've always liked/hated Pictionary, depending on your partner. My teen daughter loves Apples To Apples, but YMMV. Have fun!


As @moondrake mentioned, Fluxx (and its many and various incarnations) is also a good one -- I have several of the variants myself, and it's always a hit with my friends.

As a good but kinda quick game, Zombie Dice works well, and you can have basically as many players as you want.

If your group is into 'party games,' Quelf can be quite interesting. It's somewhat similar to Cranium but with a quite quirky slant. There are 8 player pieces included, but you can easily team up or add more of your own player pieces to the mix if you want to play with more people.


I love board games! When I have larger crowds, we play Apples to Apples, Balderdash (it includes 6 game pieces, but more can play), 5 Crowns, and The Game of Things. Also, I just received the game Telestrations, which can play up to 8 people (more is better). Most of these will make you laugh, but they are also competitive.


At our family reunion, (A lot of us stay there for a week and hang out.) we've been known to play Quiddler, 5 Crowns, Uno, and a couple of games using standard decks of cards or dice.



And of course, there is always Dungeons and Dragons :-)


I second Apples to Apples and Balderdash. Been meaning to check out Cards Against Humanity.

I was going to say Carcassonne but I think that's max five players.


Def Apples to Apples.. its great for young to well young at heart.
