    This is also a brill game if you're not that good at geography πŸ‘Œ the bonus is that there's loads of map expansions available which all play slightly differently, so it's got a lot of life in it!
  6. The Android version has local and online multiplayer (and is also on sale at the time of writing!): https://play.google.com/store/ap...

    I love the random city generator aspect of it and how city mergers are the most effective and meanest strategy in the game.

    This is our go-to game with new or mixed groups. The rules are very easy to explain (takes me about a minute to cover everything), and it's casual enough that everyone can keep chatting while playing. The mix of strategy and chance makes it engaging for all skill levels and personality types.

    Munchkins is by far my favorite game out there. It takes a few hours to learn but once you and a few friends have it down, it's incredibly fun, competitive, addictive. Involves a lot of manipulation and strategy.
  11. Perfect game of deduction that is a lot of fun.

    This is one of the best games out there to play with friends. The game has aspects of a RPG video game and classic dungeon exploration game. One unique aspect, the first phase of the game all players are generally on the same team/neutral. In the second phase, typically one player becomes the bad guy with special powers versus all other players. Examples of bad guy powers could be becoming a vampire, werewolf, or frankenstein's monster, or controlling zombies, aliens, etc etc. There are 50 different scenarios in the standard game box.
  13. Awesome boardgame for parties, creative and funny. Perfect for any kind of group, all ages.

    Fun and strategic and it allows for chatting which can work against some players if they forget to grab replacement tiles before the next person goes.
    Excellent strategy and puzzle game.

    Its like connect 4 and gin rummy on a board. Fairly easy to learn, yet challenging and kinda addictive. Lots of fun to play with big brained friends that super competitive. (get the giant version).

    Can't believe this wasn't added - Cards Against Humanity, but for tech people. Written by one of my good friends, Daniel Singer. It's an absolute blast to play with people who understand/work in the tech industry.

  20. In Coup, you want to be the last player with influence in the game, with influence being represented by face-down character cards in your playing area. A lot of fun moments and nice to play with family and friends.
