Hello BBGeeks!

I would like some game suggestions where:
- 8 or more players can play
- Learning curve not too hard
- Good introductory for people new to board games


To avoid games I already own/played please dont mention
Resistance/Mafia
Cash n Guns
Scattergories
Telestrations
Codenames
Cards against Humanity
Stone stupid drunk
Queen of the hill
Uno
Monopoly Deal

Time's Up!
I've played it only once, but it's fun, can easily accomodate more than 8 player (I think I've played it with 12) and is explained in about 1-2 minutes.

Other possibilities are Dixit: Odyssey and Mysterium. I still have to try these, but they look interesting (particularly mysterium).

Dixit Odyssey seems to fit the bill perfectly. Concept may also be worth looking into, though I've only played it with 4 or 6 players.

Pit - Plays max 8. Could probably be modified to play more if you bought a second copy and changed the required number of cards up to 10 instead of 9, etc.

It's a wild real time trading game invented over 100 years ago. And still lots of fun!

Snorta! - Really stupid fun. Works with all ages.
Sushi Go Party! - Card-drafting game plays up to 8.
Spyfall - Someone's a liar, but they don't know where they are.
A Fake Artist Goes to New York - A drawing version of Spyfall.

Panic on Wall Street! plays up to 11 players, and I find it very fun. And by fun I mean shouty.

Camel Up is fairly easy to learn and is basically a fun, betting game. Concept is fine with more people, we just break up into teams. Mysterium is great, essentially Clue meets Dix-It but plays up to 7. Citadels is a fairly quick role selecting card game but may be too get your neighbor for a party!
