This is the most popular forum I inhabit, and so I was looking for a few opinions on a small-scale party game. Let me explain what I mean.
I haven’t mentioned it yet on here, but my girlfriend and I recently became engaged (yay!). In the last few months, I’ve been reconnecting with a near and dear friend I’ve known since I was 9. He’s also recently engaged, and it seems likely that the four of us will be spending some time together. To that end, I was thinking about investing in a small party game we all could enjoy.
To be clearer, what I mean is something along the lines of Apples to Apples, Cards Against Humanity, or Superfight. Something that’s pretty relaxed and easy-going, and isn’t too detailed or complex. Pictionary would be another good example - relatively simple to play, and can be tons of fun, too. Being simpler and less of a “hardcore game” (I can’t think of a better way to say this) is pretty important since my fiancee is averse to anything more complex than Bubble Witch Saga or Candy Crush; but she hasn’t even touched a casual game for a few months at least.
I suppose another way to describe what I’m looking for is a “game for when couples hang out”. The only thing I know about this situation is what I’ve seen troped with on TV. Also, “troped” is a word, I don’t care what you say.
Cards Against Humanity currently has the nod from me, since I’ve seen it before (though never played it), my fiance has too, and we both thought it looked like fun (seen Youtube videos of others play it; namely Sourcefed if anyone watches that); my friend is the type to appreciate this sort of game too, and my little experience with his fiance suggests she would too. I’m not sure of her age, but the rest of us are 25 or 26 (I’m the old one).
So, I’m looking for opinions, and options I haven’t heard about before, if anyone knows of them. Just spitball if you’re not sure.
Thanks in advance for everyone’s time and effort.
