BANG! seems an obvious candidate for what you're after.

What about A Fake Artist Goes to New York I enjoy that most people are not intimidated by drawing one single line each. There is a way for the fake artist to "win" the round by guessing the theme. Look into it, it is usually cheap off amazon and pretty light hearted.

Edit: spacing, and I am not sure if it on Amazon.de

Couldn't recommend Ca$h 'n Guns (Second Edition) more (unless you have a problem with foam guns)

Hi there,
I'm looking for a party game as a christmas present for my family. It should be a light, easy game, where interaction and fun is more important than strategy.

I was thinking about Dixit or Codenames, but have decided against both of them. In codenames, too much thinking and "work" is involved, and Dixit gets a little too personal.


Huh?!?!?

Yeah, Codenames seems pretty easy fun to me. FWIW I would consider Codenames Pictures. It is good fun and avoids many possible disagreements about whether a word is a legitimate clue or not which can arise with the original text version (like in many word/clue games). ("It's a form of the other word!" "No it's not, their roots are just similar and there is no etymological relation"; "You can't say 'goodness' if the word is 'badness'" "But -ness is just a suffix! Can I similarly not use a plural word ending in '-s' if the secret word is plural?" ... etc etc)

Skull is a fun push-your-luck bluffing game.

I would definitely second the suggestion of Codenames or Codenamesictures. They have both been a hit with my family. The Resistance is a great "Werewolf" type game. Wits and Wagers also provides a lot of fun without any strain on the brain. PitchCar and Flick'em up are fun manual dexterity games(a bit pricey, a bit of setting up, but simply fun)

FunEmployed and Monikers are popular with my group but I don't know if they are available in Germany.

2 essentials:

The Resistance
Deception: Murder in Hong Kong

is it BANG! or BANG! The Dice Game you own? the latter is much better.

Diamant or Incan Gold might suit I believe the new Diamant edition should be readily available in Europe.

I really wanted to like Incan Gold, but the first time I played it, it fell flat... really just wasn't as much tension as I though there would be... If I recall correctly, the voting cards were hard to read, too.

One Night Ultimate Werewolf is great, involves a great mix of bluffing and laughing. Especially if you've played werewolf before. Resistanceor Avalonare also great, but are longer and more of just straight bluffing/deception games, and are more serious than One Night. I've also heard great things about Dead Last, though that requires at least 6.

Duplik is a surprisingly fun drawing game with an "art director" giving instructions for 90 seconds so the other players can create copies of the original artwork. Lots of fun reviewing the drawings.
Nuns on the Run is a hidden movement game for 2-8 players where most of the players are the hiders.
