With all the Geek lists about games going around lately, why not continue the trend?

This list will be for games that were originally designed to be played by two players, but can be played by more then two rather well.

This could be a very short list. laugh

Jambo actually holds 3 players fairly well.

This is the superior version of Ubongo in my opinion.

Playing with more then two players requires another copy of the game, but the game play is not affected.

This is one I have not tried, but I have heard it works well for a large scale melee.

This was an ultimate team experience from my past.

First time I did this opposed was near the end of a semester -
for about a week random people were coming in and out of
my house, often switching sides as the player mix dictated
(we had a one person with moral objections to playing
the Rebs, and one who insisted on it). Great fun. Managed a
couple other team games of this later on.

The designer-created 3-player rules were made available sometime after the release of this 2-player game.
