Board Games For 8 Players

#1. Decrypto

Decrypto Board Game Logo and Art

Players: 3-8
Playing time: 15-45mins

Decrypto is a fun word party game that’ll boost your creativity and communication. You’ll be trying to transmit secret codes to your teammates without letting the opposing team intercept them. 

To secretly transmit codes to teammates, you’ll need to brush up on your communication skills to assure that your teammate understands the code. However, at the same time, you want to make sure that it is too vague for the opposing team to figure out. 

Decrypto comes with screens that’ll help decode your words as a player gives a clue about their words.

Decrypto is highly addictive. You’ll find yourselves playing round after round.

#2. Detective Club

Players: 4-8
Playing time: 45mins

Ready to flex your mind muscles?

Detective Club is a party game in the same vein as Dixit, but with a little twist. Players will be given a word and play 2 cards that closest resemble that word. The twist is that 1 player doesn’t know the word and will have to bluff through their explanation. 

The artwork feels like a surreal dreamscape with all kinds of odd and beautiful imagery. It’s one of those games that you’ll play without keeping score simply because it’s so fun and engaging. 

It plays especially well with larger groups and maxes out at 8 players. Although I’m sure if you tried, you could jury-rig your own components to add more players.

  • Social deduction party game
  • A game of hidden clues and subtle conspiracies
