We do game nights with some of my co-workers pretty frequently. It’s usually a bigger group (6-8) but I think you could play some of these games with 4 people.

– Catch Phrase
– Cranium
– Trivial Pursuit (specifically the new “You Can Bet On It” version because you can buy wedges with chips you earn by betting on other people in the game so you don’t even have to know too much trivia!)
– Apples to Apples
– Loaded Questions
– Balderdash

Smart Ass! Darling Husband picked it up at Target one night, completely randomly, and now it’s our favorite board game. No one has ever heard of it but everyone loves to play it once they start! It’s fun, a little challenging and the rules are really easy. It’s a great game to play with 4 players or even more.

Darling Husband and I love board games! Some of our favorites are:

-Munchkin

-Carcassonne

-Betrayal at House on the Hill (AMAZING in a big group)

-Life

I realize some of these aren’t very common but trust me they are amazing games for groups of people.

Our go to Game Night game is Apples to Apples! Pretty much whenever we have a big get together with our friends, we all know it’s going to be broken out at one point in the night.

We always bring Catch Phrase, it’s a great go-to game–especially if you have some friends who don’t know each other. It always makes everyone laugh, especially after a few drinks!

Aw! We miss game night!!! We used to have friends, and after we moved we just haven’t really made any 🙁 We do play with my bro and sister-in-law sometimes. Our favorites are:

Settlers of Catan, Taboo, Spades and Boggle. Darling Husband loves Cranium, too.

 ETA: Balderdash is super fun, too!!

Fluxx is great!  We love Phase 10 too and I feel like they would appeal to similar audiences.

I also second PP’s Apples to Apples and Taboo recommendations.

We’d like to get a game night once a month or something too! that’d be fun.

I’m a big Scrabble fan but that’s not probably the best for groups…..

Depending on your circle….playing Apples to Apples with a dirty mind is hilariously fun,

Others we have/like to play:

Sequence

Chinese Checkers

Five Crowns (card game)

Farkle

Catch Phrase or Charades are great breaking the ice games too!

@Mrs. Gremmlin:  SPADES!!!!! We LOVE spades. Whenever we get together with DHs family we always play several games of spades. Wish we knew more spades players!

@PitBulLover:  haha! I’ve been playing since I could hold cards in my hands!!!! It’s definitely a family fave! I never meet any young folk who like to play. Canasta is another one we play, but people always tell me it’s for old women…
