The Telegraph Recommends Party Games
The Telegraph has recommendation for 15 fun party games.
Tiny Epic Western (Art of Boardgaming): “It really has fun elements to it that make it a good filler plus game. I say filler plus because it’s not something that you’re going to be done within 15 minutes, but it’s not going to take 2 hours either.”
Bugs in the Kitchen (Toy and Game Report): “It reminds me of the silly and really fun games of the my childhood. Games like Hang on Harvey and Time Bomb. It’s a game that’s best played quickly. It’s a game that needs a shot clock.
Carcassonne: Amazonas (Board Game Quest): “Even with wonderful art and a race mechanism unique to this version, it lacks the depth or high engagement of the previous versions from the Around the World series.”
