Explain the Types of Board Games
Entry-level board games for six players typically have few rules, often don’t take long to set up, and have an elementary mechanic that is easy to understand. These lower complexity games are a great way to introduce someone to the joy and variety of playing board games. Popular examples of entry-level board games that can accommodate up to 6 players include Tic Tac Toe, Battleship, Connect Four and Jenga.
Complexity varies from game to game with some involving intense strategy as well as very detailed instruction manuals. Popular contemporary titles with serious competition potential include Catan (previously titled ‘Settlers of Catan’), Ticket to Ride, Carcassonne and Pandemic.
Classic titles have been around decades and still attract new fans such as Chess, Checkers, Go (Wei Qi), Backgammon and Mancala, all of which require skillful thought and determination to become successful at them.
Include Recommended Age Range
Settlers of Catan is a classic, highly-regarded and award-winning board game for 6 players. It involves trading, building settlements, and outwitting your opponents. The perfect game for family gatherings or friends spending the night together, it combines strategy and luck to create an ever-changing interactive experience akin to a mini civilization. For ages 10+, the reward is great fun with lasting joys; some families get so competitive they’ve been known to keep playing until dawn!

Alternatives to board games that can offer similar experiences for up to 6 players could include cooperative video games, such as ‘Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes’, where each player has a unique role in solving puzzles and completing the game, or party games like ‘Overcooked’, where players have to work together to complete tasks under strict time limits. For an immersive story element without a controller in hand, consider a virtual escape game: apps like ‘The Room’ offer intense visual and audio experiences, as well as multiple levels of difficulty so larger groups can have more chances of success. To bring the physical elements back into play, turn to card games such as Texas hold ’em poker or classic card matching games like Four by Four. There are also many variations on classic boardgames like bingo, Clue or Settlers of Catan that can accommodate six players.
Break Out Unique Mechanics
One great board game for six players is Pandemic Legacy. This game has players take the roles of different scientists, doctors and volunteers who are working together to try to stop a series of diseases that are spreading across the world. Each month, events unfold based on what players do. They must work together to secure resources and save cities around the globe from a powerful virus.
The unique mechanic that sets this game apart from other cooperative games is the legacy aspect. Unlike many cooperative games, with Pandemic Legacy, each time you play you gain permanent changes to your scenarios. From unlocking new characters and storylines to transforming locations on the board as you progress throughout the season, your experience with this game will be vastly different even if you play it multiple times. As such, it keeps things exciting as no two games will ever be quite the same!
Showcase Special Editions
Monopoly brings up nostalgia for many of us and there is now a special editions tailored specifically to the needs of 6 players. This classic game has been around since 1935, but new iterations have emerged to deliver more interacting experiences. One such version being the Game of Thrones Special Edition, designed to bring you into the fantasy world of Westeros. Now more than ever this edition has added map pieces for hundreds of different characters including your favorite houses like Stark and Lannister along with their respective sigils and banners. As an example, buying a luxury hotel in Meereen could easily lead to a debate between Lannisters, Targaryens and Starks over who should pay for it! In addition to these houses you’ll also be able to interact with the icons from the show as you pass Go: collect $200 Iron Throne!, put all players in Illyrio’s debt with Free passage or win big if one of your tokens successfully besieges Highgarden Castle. Monopoly: Game of Thrones is just one iteration that provides extra flavor when it comes to playing with 6 players.
I love playing all kinds of games – from classics like Monopoly to modern favourites like Ticket to Ride.
