I am looking for a 4-7 (or more) board game that would be similar to Cosmic Encounter (the latest) or Bang!. We've tried a number of games, including Battlestar Galactica, but some players found that it lasted too long, Shadow Hunters, which was deemed a poorer version of Bang!, and Pandemic, that everyone found enjoyable, but lacking in competitive element.

Any ideas?

(P.S. Cosmic Encounters is only 6 players with expansion, so any games that are close 4-7 would be fine. We're not too picky. )

How about 5-8 players? Nanuk might work well. It's partially coop, and lasts about 30-45 minutes. There's a video review by Tom Vasel(new), and even a session report with 10 players.

The Castle of the Devil is a great card game with hidden roles like in Bang! Great artwork too.

I have read about, but not played Bacchus' Banquet. Reviews mention it as similiar to Bang! It only plays up to 5 officially, but I see it is recommended for more than 5 on the games page here at the geek, so it must be possible to play with more.

Citadels is an oldie but goldie that plays up to 8. The players choose roles secretly for each turn, so in that way it is different from Bang! Can play long with many players though, but that is also very dependent on the group. If you are fast players, this should not be a problem.

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 ....

Don't forget Saboteur. This is a great, fast-paced game.

And the designer has also just released a new one: Nuns on the Run ... but we haven't had the chance to try it yet !
