I want to be able to run an online birthday party with a game geek flavour, but possibly with some normal people as well. We will all join a discord server and take it from there. Here are my parameters:
- should be quick to play, so multiple games can be played, and people who arrive late/leave early can join/leave without stress.
- should be fun and easy to learn. Also easy to install. Ideally playable on a phone.
- should not favour skilled players too much. Or, alternatively, players who aren’t very good can be on a team. Ideally a game that nobody has played before, but which is nonetheless easy and fun.
- (for reason above) team games would be best
- flexible/largish player count.
Here are my ideas so far:
- Among Us. Perfect, but max players 10.
- Skribbl.io. Good, but max 8 players
- Teeworlds. Might just be the best option. Bit of a pain to set up, but I can run a server. 16 players max, which is ideal.
- Avalon.fun. A bit long and a bit tricky for newcomers, but most know it. Max players 10
- Mario Kart would be good, but some people are just too good at it.
What multiplayer online easy/fun team game for flexible player counts from about 8-16 am I missing? Or how can we play Among Us with more than 10 players?
