Long time no see. I'm Moon Face, who loves games.
What do you all do during the New Year holidays and the year-end and New Year holidays when family and friends often gather on Christmas? Smash Bros.? Pikabui?
Of course, video games are also attractive, but my recommendation is card games where you can enjoy real communication facing each other. It's not a standard game like playing cards or UNO, and if you choose a lesser-known game, there will be no difference in skill, so there is no doubt that it will be even more exciting! This time, I will introduce these four types of games, along with their impressions of actually playing them.
2 selections that children can do together・ Nanja Monja 1,400 yen (tax included, same below)
"Nanja Monja" is a card game from Russia that names the mysterious creature "Nanja Monja". With simple rules that anyone can understand immediately, you can play from the target age of 4 years old.
The rule is to turn over the cards in order and give a name to the creature that came out, and if the same thing comes out later, shout that name as soon as possible. The earliest person wins the cards in play, and when all the cards are exhausted, the number of collected cards competes for superiority or inferiority.
Interesting point: It 's a bright game where you can always laugh while being a little brain training because you need to remember the names of 12 animals in one box. If you try to disturb the place and give it a crazy name, you will not be able to remember yourself and you will self-destruct, so various senses are required.
Number of players: 2 to 6
Target age: 4 years old and over
・ Softly good night 1,400 yen
Contrary to the childish and warm design, "soft good night" is a test of acting ability and attention. It's a reprint of a card game born in Germany in 2005.
The basic rule is to have 4 illustrations with the same hat in your hand. Give one of the five cards you don't need to the next person, and proceed in the reverse order of the old maid.
What you should do when you have four cards is to "turn down the card on the spot without anyone noticing". When I noticed that someone was lying down, other players followed, and the one who remained until the end was inadvertent. As a penalty, you will receive the "Onemu-chan" card, and the person who has the most at the end will lose.
Interesting point: Since you can lie down at any time, it is thrilling and interesting to look around, aim when someone is choosing a card, or deliberately shake the story. It also includes a "joker" that can be used as any hat, and there are patterns that will be aligned from the beginning, so be careful not to show it on your face. You can play from 3 people, but it will be ready soon, so it is recommended to do it with a large number of people as much as possible.
Number of players: 3-7
Target age: 5 years old and over
Two selections you want to do with friends you can't care about・ Best Act 1,728 yen
The new game "Best Act" just released in November this year. The inventor is Mr. Kazunari Yonemitsu, a game creator who has worked on many popular video games such as "Puyo Puyo".
The content of the game is to play the given theme with only "voice" and "facial expression". For example, in the case of "Hah" which is also the title, [Why? "Hah"] [Angry "Hah"] [Broken heart "Hah"] etc. are available.
The theme to be played is randomly selected, and the viewer votes what he played. Scores are given to the correct answerer and the performer, and the person with the highest score wins.
There are many theme cards, so you can enjoy it for a long time without getting bored. There is also a theme for a joint party, so the organizer may choose a card in advance according to the scene.
Interesting point: Since the performer will not get points unless he / she hits it, the frustration of not being able to express it according to his / her own image or choosing something different from what he / she intended will make him laugh and get excited. My friends also highly evaluated it as "I can see myself objectively" and "It's fun to do it with a good friend".
Number of players: 3-8 Target age: 8 years old and over
・ One Night Werewolf 1,620 yen
"One Night Werewolf" is a board game that is so popular that events can be held. It's easy to settle overnight, so it's easy to explain the rules to beginners, and you can enjoy an incandescent battle even though it's a simplified version.
Players are assigned positions such as "werewolves" and "villagers", and the basic flow is that the villagers seek out and execute the werewolves that have slipped into the village through discussions (the werewolves win if they are stopped). Special positions such as "fortune teller" and "phantom thief" are also available, and if you get around well, it will become more and more complicated.
Interesting point: Not only is it fun to think about strategies to win your camp, but it's also fun to get a glimpse of each person's personality, such as when a gentle person lie or betrayed by someone who believes. It is also recommended for places where there are people who meet for the first time, but please be careful not to misanthropy during the year-end and New Year holidays!
Number of players: 3-7 Target age: 10 years old and over
Thank you for staying with us so far. Did you get the image that you are playing? Why don't you leave your smartphone and enjoy it during the year-end and New Year holidays when you can meet people you can't usually meet?
