Hi everyone.

I have a group that meet up everyweek and I would like to get a few party games to get conversation going more quickly. The thing is that I enver really looked into party gamnes so here is what i'm looking for.

- quick: about half an hour maximum
- Stranger can play it together and have fun (even better if it's an ice breaker)
- ok for younger person (13 years old and up)
- not affected by language OR available in french.

Is there a game that fits all my needs.

(Don't suggest Werewolf, someone tried to make a session for halloween but was a really bad gamemaster)

Apples to Apples will work fine. Break it into teams if you have a large group.

Word on the Street is a good 2-team game that can get people pretty involved.

Dixit will play six or fewer (i'd recommend playing with at least four) and it works in whatever language you are gaming in. There is no text in the actual game and since it's all about cleverly describing images, player do not have to start with any common frame of reference. The rules come in a bunch of different languages and are one page front and back per language. It's really easy to teach, and takes about a half hour to play.

That's weird. This bit used to mention Shire Games, and tell you all how wonderful we are. But it seems to have got deleted. Let's see what happens this time ....

Gambit 7 (also known as Wits & Wagers) is a game that fits the bill for 20 minutes for up to 7 players.

And Saboteur will play up to 10 players in about 40 minutes, and is a load of fun.

I'll second the nomination for Saboteur.

I'd recommend Say Anything. It's easy and quick, and it'll help people to get to know one another a little better.

I'd recommend A to Z Electronic pretty strongly. It's worked great with parties of any size, and breeds some healthy competition immediately.

I bought this recently and have been waiting for the right opportunity to play it. It looks fantastic.
