I am going to a meetup tomorrow. What games can I play for moistly casuals?

I want to start off with a game for everybody and then break into 2 or more groups.

Resistance Avalon, Formula D (but too long), 6 Nimmt is all I can think of.

You can have teams of 5 or 6. There's a 3 team variant too, but I've never tried it.

Monikers is a good group casual game. I also like Exploding Kittens and Bears vs. Babies for large groups.

If you want social deduction and people are okay with the theme: Secret Hitler. This game has provided a lot of intriguing fun.

Hope that helps!

Deception: Murder in Hong Kong goes to 12 and is like a mixture of Resistance and Mysterium.

I don't really like party games but I guess we have to play one to start off and then split into 2-3 groups.

Well games like Secret Hitler, Coup and Resistance are the types of party games that have a little bit more strategy to them so they don't feel like they are mindless. I like Monikers but it can just be silly. If your group isn't for silly, don't do Monikers. However, my family isn't very big into board games and the games that have gotten the most participants so far over a couple Christmases and Thanksgivings are Exploding Kittens, Monikers and Lords of Vegas.

I could never figure how to play Resistance (Avalon) well. Played Secret Hitler once didn't like it. Coup was ok, but I am not good at these types of games. Monikers is to silly.

I think I will suggest splitting up right away or play a 6 or 7 player game with more strategy.

I wouldn't overlook a game like Wings of Glory - it can play any number from 2-99. You'll just need to shell out (one time) about $10 per player to pick up a miniature (airplane) for each person.
