Monopoly is a game that can be played with friends and family. The aim of the game is to buy, sell and trade properties. There are many versions of Monopoly including a Star Wars version where you have to have an “Imperial” landing card to land on Hoth, the planet from Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back. This game is fun for kids as well as adults because it involves collecting money, buying property and having lots of fun!
If you’re looking for a party game that requires players to think of words that fit into a specific category, Scattergories is the game for you. It can be played with 2-8 people and is great for getting the whole family involved.
In Scattergories, players draw cards from a stack and then have 30 seconds to write down as many answers as they can think of that fit into the word on their card. For example: If your card reads “Things That Are Red And Blue And Yellow” then some possible answers might be “A Bee Sting” or “A Rainbow” or even “A Traffic Signal On A Rainy Day When The Colors Are Blurred By Raindrops.” You get points if your answer matches one that someone else has already written down; however, if there are no other players who have chosen an answer similar to yours (e.g., no one else wrote down “Bee Sting), then nobody gets points!
Jenga is a classic game that is great for all ages. You can play as a team or individually and it can be played indoors or outdoors. There are a variety of different rules you can modify and change to make the game more difficult or to just shake things up. You can also use other blocks instead of Jenga blocks depending on what materials you have available at the time.
Risk is a classic strategy game that has been around for decades. The rules are simple: each player starts with 6 armies, and then you have to try and conquer the world. You can only move one army per turn, but you get to choose where they go, which makes things interesting because there are tons of options!
In order to win at Risk, you need to conquer all of your opponents’ territories. Each territory has a number on it that represents how many armies it takes to capture it (for example, a territory with 2 armies on it means that if an opponent captures this territory he or she will get 2 more armies).
To play with friends instead of against AI bots like in the original version of Risk Legacy Edition by Hasbro Inc., simply make sure nobody gets eliminated from the game before everyone else! If someone gets knocked out too early then they’ll feel left out – so make sure everyone stays active as long as possible!
Taboo is a game of word association. Two players take turns trying to get their partner to say a word that’s on their card, but they can’t use any of the words in that list. It’s a great way to test your vocabulary, and it makes for a fun time with family or friends.
Trivial Pursuit is a game that can be played with 1-6 players. The board is made up of a grid, with each intersection having a different category and value on it. Players take turns rolling the die and moving their playing piece to the next space on the board. When you land on an intersection, you must answer a trivia question from one of six categories (People & Places; Arts & Literature; History; Science & Nature; Sports & Leisure; and Entertainment). You can choose to pass if you don’t know an answer or don’t want to risk losing points by giving an incorrect answer. If no one answers correctly, then everyone else gets another chance at answering before going back to the player who rolled first. Points are awarded based on how many players answered correctly and what your position was when time ran out–the winner gets 24 points while second place gets 12 points, third place gets 8 points, fourth place gets 6 points, fifth place gets 4 points and last place only receives 2 points!
There are multiple versions of Trivial Pursuit available for purchase including: Classic Edition ($20), Junior Edition ($15), Genus Edition ($12), Star Wars Trilogy Episodes IV – VI (Limited Edition) Collector’s Edition ($25) , Harry Potter™ Wizarding World™ Game ($35).
Pictionary is a game where players have to guess what other players are drawing. It is a game of speed, accuracy, and creativity. You can play with 2 or more people, or you can even play alone!
This game is great for all ages and all types of people. It’s also perfect for parties since it allows everyone to participate at the same time.
