Are you searching for games that allow ten or more players, but coming up short with titles like Monopoly, Scrabble, and Sorry? Maybe you would like to find a new game to endure the next family get together, or perhaps you’re a college student looking for more (responsible) drinking games. Whatever the case may be, these unusual games may quench your thirst for something new.
1.Nacho Loco – With nacho shaped pieces this game is somewhat difficult to shuffle, but worth it for fun factor. With simple cards like skip, draw 3, and go again the rules are easy to learn, but strategy is developed over time. This is one of my favorite card games of all time – highly recommended and only about 5$!
2.Apples to Apples – Pick a card and read what it says to the group. Everyone looks at their hand and chooses a card they feel appeals to the reader. This game is great for people getting to know each other or those who think they know each other very well. Around 20$.
if you enjoy this version check these out too:
Two expansion sets
Apples to go (travel pack).
Party Crate (offers box to hold cards)
3.Guestimation – Do you know how many hairs are on an average human head (without consulting a search engine)? Of course not! Who does? That’s the beauty of questions found in Guestimation where players guess the answer, and the most accurate guess wins. Must be played in teams if using the scoreboard (which is recommended, but forget the “challenge” or “duel” rules for faster game play). Teams of 2-3 will have fun debating over comical answers. Around 20-30$
4. Fluxx – The title may sound a bit strange, but for a game that is constantly fluctuating there could be no better name. This game will last between 5 and 45 minutes and is never the same game twice. The original card game can be found on Amazon for as little as 6$ -20$ . (Also good for 2+ players)
If you enjoy the regular version you may want to try others on page 2:
Family Fluxx – Around 5$. Great for church groups and families. (Good for 2 players or more)
Monty Python Fluxx – Around 15$. An excellent spin off the original version. No need to be a movie fan to enjoy.
Eco Fluxx – Around 10$. For the tree hugger in your family. (Good for 2 players or more)
Pirate Fluxx – Around 15$. Arrrr Matey. Great for kids.
Martian Fluxx – Around 13$. Ok for kids, fun for alien lovers, but still not as great as the original version.
Zombie Fluxx – Around 13$. Not as fun as other Fluxx volumes, and includes unusual rules which require the player to make zombie noises, but if you begin to collect the series of Fluxx games this might be for you (also has expansion set).
(Other versions are becoming available all the time at Amazon).
5. In a Pickle – Does a cow fit in a pickle? No…but a pickle fits inside a cow right? Sure a cow wouldn’t eat a pickle, but in this game if it fits inside then you can play the card. You win a point if you lay the smallest card (like an atom or peanut shell). With over 300 cards in the deck “story mode” is recommended to teach children about physical and abstract objects while you play. Usually around 10$.
