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