This is part of a group of lists that use the overall BGG ratings in combination with the "Best With x Players"/"Recommended With x Players" to produce a list of the best games for a certain number of players.

The idea is as a reference tool - you know you'll have x number of players at your game night, so have a look at this list and pick a game. You know that it will be a good game for the number of players you have, so its 'just' a case of picking the best actual game for them.

Once you start looking for games for 7 or more players it becomes hard - they make up a small proportion of all the games on BGG. So this list includes games that are "Recommended" as well as "Best" for 7 or more players. I've included all the games I found, but I will allow additions to this list if people know of more - just make sure you include the Best/Recommendations stats from the game entry.

If you don't agree with some of the Best/Recommended #s then I urge you to go and register your vote on that game's poll!

All lists in this series:
The Best Games for 1 Player
The Best Games for 2 Players
The Best Games for 3 Players
The Best Games for 4 Players
The Best Games for 5 Players
The Best Games for 6 Players
The Best Games for 7 or more Players
How Many Players? Play this.....
How Many Players? Play This..... (2010 Edition)

Other lists have been attempted like this previously, but this is the first one to my knowledge that uses the #players polls in the game entries. You may also want to check out:

Find an extra set of houses for 7th player. You can fudge the numbers for resources or look them up Power Grid. We do not, we like the tight resources as it adds more thought to game. We play as per 6 player rules with the following additions/cards voted in.
With the new expansion out here Power Grid: BGG Promo Card Set you have an extra city that can be added with the Theme Park, and if resources are an issue add the warehouse card that adds resources.
Needed are 4 extra power plants for the extra player, these can be added by using 4 cards from Power Grid: The New Power Plant Cards or make some cards and use New Plants (fan expansion for Power Grid).
We have often played with 7 players refining game, with the above additions we have found the balance needed to play with 7.
