The other night three couples were preparing to play some games.

Right before we started the lights went out. After finding some candles and an oil lamp(which worked very well), we decided to play Bang!

This went very well and then the lights came back on.

What other games would work well with low lights? (Don't worry about number of players) Keep it clean!

This worked real well and you really only need to see your hand and what is in front of the other folks.

Low light is a requirement, and the game is lit by a candle.

This is the first game that came to mind when I saw this list. Not only is it a good game to play in low light, the look of the game improves in low light.

This would be excellent by candle light. But not too low. ("Hey, which one's the red barrier?")

This one wouldn't work as well with just normal low-lights, but with no "REGULAR" lights and a blacklight, it looks pretty dang cool. (Maybe low regular lights to see everything else though)
