Once again I want to try a game on a Christmas Eve. Last time we played "Wanna Bet?" and that was a lot of fun. On Easter, we played Taboo and my mom literally cried with laughter. I got some smaller and more "mid" games like Sushi Go and Carcassone, but I want something that makes everyone laugh.

The important thing is that there will be probably only 3 of us - me, my sister and my mom.

I wanted to take Sherriff of Nottingham, but the game is really big. Maybe Time's up with modified rules? What else do you've got in mind?

You can play Codenames with three - one spymaster two people guessing.

Cheers.

Although best with more players, I've had a good time playing Snake Oil with only 3 players. The game does depend on the players being "on the spot" imaginative.

Rather than have one person be the judge and the other two the salesmen, we played where each player was a salesman to an imaginary client. Then each salesman voted for who they thought had the best pitch. It's more of an activity than a "game" so winning doesn't really matter so much. Some of the products and their sales pitch can be pretty hilarious (Trying to sell an Exercise Corpse or Brain Oven to a Grave Robber were from one memorable round).

You can add elements of But Wait, There's More! (unfortunately out of print) by having the salesman blindly add another "word" card and having to add it to your pitch on the fly.

If you're looking for something similar to Sheriff of Nottingham that's playable with 3, maybe Coup .

I'll try to help you, ¿or to give you too many options?:

Codenames: I dindn't recommend it for 3 players.

Coup: +1 vote
- Laugh: usually.
- 3 players: perfect. The best number is 3-6.
- Size: very small.

Sneaks and snitches:
- Laugh: always.
- 3 players: it works well with 2-6 players, better 3-6.
- Size: small.

Pirate dice: voyage on the rolling seas:
- Laugh: always.
- 3 players: it works with 2-4 players.
- Size: big.

Jungle speed:
- Laugh: always.
- 3 players: it can be perfectly played with 2-8 players.
- Size: small.

Eight-minute empire:
- Laugh: not so mutch.
- 3 players: it works with 2-5 players.
- Size: medium.

The adventurers: The temple of Chac:
- Laugh: always.
- 3 players: it works with 3 players. In my opinion the ideal is 3-6 players.
- Size: big.

Ultimate warriorz:
Only if you'd like a confrontation game.
- Laugh: always.
- 3 players: perfect with 3-8 players.
- Size: big.

Halli Galli is great fun! I don't usually like speed games, but this one always leads to laughter. Plays perfectly well with 3 and is not particularly big.

If you like games that rely on quick reaction times and messing with your brain, I suggest Ghost Blitz and Anomia.

I've played Ghost Blitz with two other friends and had a great time. We laughed so hard and it's fun to scramble to grab the right object.

I've played Anomia with my mom and sister, and the three of us were in tears. This game relies on quickly giving answers verbally instead of grabbing the correct item.

While I like both of these games, I probably wouldn't play them back-to-back as they have similar elements.
