Hi all my wife is running a corporate event and she's been tasked with setting up 5-6, 8ish player games during an hour or so activity session. I have suggested cash and guns and telestrations. They need to be easy to teach and not too difficult to play as a non gamer, but also fun. I greatly appreciate any recommendations?

Hi,

Telestrations worked excellently during my last team building (8 of us - all of them non gamers) so no need to look any further than that .

You could also not go wrong with Dixit, even if you do not play full game in 30 minutes, Dixit is always fun.

I'd recommend Camel Up. We've used it with new gamers and it plays up to 8. -m

Have a look at this list I made with the most popular games listed by their "weight" . The games with support of 6+ players are marked with a d10-6-symbol on top.

If you stay under the 1.7 range, I think you'll be fine: The Complete Games Weight Scale - A Guide to Find Your Sweet Spot in Game Weight

Diamant is a great choice for a large-ish group of new or non-gamers. Plays up to 8.
