4 Player Games to Play At Your Next Game Night

Do you ever struggle to find a good game that can be played with 4 players for a smaller game night or casual gathering? Some of the best “parties” or get togethers are those that are the most simple and low key, like hosting a Favorite Things Party or Flower Arranging Party.

Game night is another idea that can be really fun with a group of friends or other couples. I’ve rounded up five of our favorite games that can easily be played with 4 players or less (aka also perfect for a couples game night for two). You can also play all of these games with a group larger than four if you so choose.

Five games laid out for game night on a blue and cream rug - games are Chameleon, Unstable Unicorns, Splurt, The Game of Things, and Quixx.
