I would like to have ideas of games to play at the family Chanukah party
I’ll try to get back to you.
To clarify, my area of expertise is commercially sold games, and I’m not sure that’s what you’re looking for (also, they mostly – even “party games” – can’t handle really large groups). If you are looking for the sort of thing you buy in a box, tell me how many players there will be, their age (range), and how long you want the game to be (or not be), and, perhaps, whether you want the game to be more about the game or the players (or anything else that you think might be relevant). (There’s no guarantee that a game fitting your criteria exists, though, or that I am or will become aware of it if it does.) If that’s not what you’re looking for, you should probably just Google [large group games].
I think I’d better prove I’m not going to throw something at you that’s played in 20 nano-rounds divided into 3 segments each, in which you build a tableau of hypercubes based on their inverse potential value…
2-12 players / ages 6 and up / 30 minutes [Party game, word game]
In each round, the “Blurbler” flips picture cards from the deck and tries to
say a word that begins with the same letter that the pictured object does
as quickly as possible, racing against first the player to their left, then the
next player, etc. The player who says a word first keeps the card.
(Words that have been said once cannot be used again in the same game.
No proper nouns are allowed. Words must be listed in the dictionary.)
This continues until the Blurbler has raced each of the other players once.
Play then continues with the next player being the Blurbler.
After each player has been the Blurbler a certain number of times,
the game ends, and the player with the most cards is the winner.
