Hi

I'll be heading to the Balearic Islands with a couple of friends for a cycling holiday in a few weeks time.

I usually take some portable games to play in the evenings, and am looking for some fresh recommendations.

Last year (we usually do a tour every summer) I took Spyfall and it went down a storm, but there were five of us on last year's trip and I can't see Spyfall working well with three - very hard work for the spy!

Can anyone recommend any social deduction / interaction games that work well with three players and is light and portable? Fun and interactive is what I'm looking for. NB I've already got Love Letter and Citadels which are likely to make the trip.

Thanks,

Jim

And I quite like cooperative Codenames with 3 players.

809 games in your collection and that gets tough. Already my first 3 "maybe this" thoughts are in your collection.

There's no simple explanation for anything important any of us do, and yeah the human tragedy consists of the necessity of living with the consequences, under pressure, under pressure. -Courage (For Hugh Maclennan): The Tragically Hip

BANG! The Dice Game has rules for 3 players. And should you come across other people to play with then all the better!

Hope this helps.

Throwing three light hearted games that we always take on holidays.
Bears! simple but effective mess with people's plans in game.
Dungeon Roll very quick dungeon romp where the other players can roll the minions you have to get past.
Now sit down and don't laugh at UNO . This is our holiday beast of a game. I admit to being a gaming snob sometimes but you can play this game anywhere . Bus,plane,train,airport,ferry,stood up with your bike,tiny little bistro table.nightclub,pub etc.etc if you bite on UNO check out the themed ones they often add a twist.

I remember Clans as the first, until finding it known to you already. Have to work harder to peg the other two.

Edit:
I think Cartagena also followed. Drop out "deduction" but it's still light and portable, and comparable in that each players' pawns all intermingle and have significance.

One Night Ultimate Werewolf works surprisingly well with three if you use the right combinations.
