The best six player-suitable games to add some pizazz to your next social gathering.
Hygge Game

The Hygge Game, £18

This meaningful board game is all about bringing people together to share stories about big and small things in life. With 110 cards featuring over 300 thought-provoking questions, this game will spark meaningful conversations amongst friends.

Backpacker Travel Game

Wildcard Games Backpacker, £9.99

Whether you're a seasoned traveller or only get to see the world from the comfort of your couch, this pocket-sized game brings you all the fun and unpredictability of backpacking all over the world. The aim is to outwit your opponents to be the player who returns home with the most photos, while avoiding sickness and missing your plane, or enjoying beaches and getting advice from other travellers.

Taco Cat Goat Cheese Pizza Game

Taco Cat Goat Cheese Pizza, £10.99

Taco Cat Goat Cheese Pizza is filled to the brim with hand-slapping mayhem. As in Snap, each player places a card from their hand face up into a community pile while saying taco/cat/goat/cheese/pizza in player sequence. When the card matches the mantra everyone slaps their hand on the deck, with the last one to slap picking up the cards. Whoever rids themselves of cards first wins.

5 Second Rule Interplay

5 Second Rule Board Game, £12.99

Time's not on your side, so just say what comes to mind and risk ridiculous answers slipping out as time twirls down on the unique twisted timer. It's all in good fun with this fast-paced game where you have to just say it out loud.

Scrawl Game

Scrawl, £16.99

Scrawl, as described by the creators as 'Chinese-whispers meets Pictionary,' is a game of frantic doodling and some innocent misunderstanding that sees players trying to guess what the awful doodle in front of them is trying to depict, while also letting their inner Picasso out and attempting to draw the phrase they have been given.

Who in the Room Game

Who in the Room, £18.50

Who in the room would survive the least amount of time on a desert island? Who in the room pees in the shower? Who in the room would have the most trouble assembling a bookcase from IKEA? This Who in the Room game reveals what you and your friends really think about each other, with over 300 laugh-out-loud, unexpected and personal questions.
