These games (in my apathy filled opinion) deserve to have more players. Feel free to add your own to these. Not in any order of importance, of course.

Plays up to 4.

I think this game could support another player and would be interesting with 5 players. If the players are all experienced it probably wouldn't add too much time to the game.

For some dumb reason, only plays up to 4.

I don't know what Avalon Hill was thinking when they only put 3 to 4 players in this game. Anything less than 4 sucks and 5 or 6 would be a great time. It goes fast enough that I could even see up to 8 players in a game.

Plays up to 4.

This game could handle 2 more players (it would probably need just a little bigger board. It may be a little more chaotic, but that's what makes the game so fun!

Plays up to 6.

This underrated party game not only works with 8 people, but it is probably best with that many.

Depends on the version, plays from up to 4 to up to 6.

My version plays with up to 4, but I can see this playing up to 8 without a problem. I added the 4 cups and dice myself.

The fun of Pirate's Cove (for me) are the battles. To win by avoiding combat = dull and boring game. We ALWAYS play with 6-7 players, lots of combat with a rest thrown in every once in a while. Variants that add an extra legendary pirate to the mix (so that 2 islands are effectively "blocked") can help, but for my more players makes this one a winner!

A 6th or 7th player would be nice. I think it would be a great BGG project for "us" to come up with the necessary changes

Another one that the BGG community ought to be able to devise a 6 or 7 player scenario for?
