What games you know that are best played by a candlelight? Any specifics to the color of the flame or a scent of the candle?

Candles give this game some atmosphere.

Unscented candles are best (always).

I lived in the country when I was a kid and occasionally the lights would go out. My family would light a bunch of candles and play this by candlelight. This eventually became a tradition.

Played one night by candle light and flashlight. Power went out due to a storm. Added a lot to the atmosphere

not sure if it's 'great' by candlelight, but we had to play by candlelight a few weeks ago during a storm. it felt about the right level of lighting for a game in the stone age

Old Victorian house and no electricity just candles (or oil lamp). Shadows dancing on the faces of the wannabe murderers (that is your fellow players)...
