Top 5 Five-Player Games

Over time, my gaming group has grown, shrunk, added tables, changed venues, and more. With the size of our current group, it is pretty common for us to split into multiple smaller groups and play a few different games during our weekly game night.

There’s lots of games that are great at 2 to 4 players. I also enjoy a bunch of, usually lighter, games at 6+. But I have found that I am really (and I mean really) not a fan of 5-player games. They’re often too long or slow, or don’t offer enough interaction to keep me invested in the game between my turns. It’s actually a running gag in my group that I hate 5-player games, and would rather split into 3 and 2, or even sit out than play something at 5. (Luckily, we don’t have a 5-player count all that often these days.) All that said, there are some games that I think work well at exactly 5. So here are my favorite 5-player games!

Be the Top Dog in Astoria! Or the Top Raccoon!

In the bustling land of Astoria, everyone is trying to secure their spot as the most successful tycoon. Only one can truly hold the title, though. In order to succeed, you’ll need to produce valuable commodities, sell at just the right times, invest in lucrative buildings, and buy up as many railroads and towns as you can! Ready to make it big? Give it your best shot.
