Top One vs Many Board Games

Top one vs many board games

I’ve been playing board games for a little while now and what I have noticed is the small vareity of one vs many board games available. Although we have a few good looking concepts coming to us soon, this is a genre I think we haven’t explored enough as of right now. I have been able to gather a list of a few of the best looking games pitting one player versus everyone else. So below is what I think qualify as Top one vs many board games.

Betrayal of House on the Hill

I think It’s fair to say that the one we all probably think about is Betrayal of House on the Hill. What better way to incorporate one player versus everyone else, than to point and run away from the ones you loved at one time. Yes, they may be trying to kill you now… But they weren’t before! So yes, Betrayal of House on the Hill takes this spot as what I think creates the best atmosphere for Top one vs many board games.

Descent: Journey in the Dark

Developing a game off a concept of 1 bad guy versus all good guys Descent is no stranger to board gamers. Take on the role of heroes fighting off the evil lord through quests, caves, ruins, dungeons, and monsters. Modular boards, countless heroes, skill combinations, and story driven campaigns. This is a heap of fun and with challenging adventures. Danger is around every corner. Luckily you have all your friends beside you fighting off all the stuff mentioned earlier… Well, maybe not all your friends.

Mysterium

While this game may not pit one vs many as evil versus good, Mysterium definitely pits one vs many through communicating. One player takes on a ghost who is acting as the  deliverer of visions to each player who take on the role of the mediums. Yes, they will be talking to you, because you are now dead. Each game turn, which is an hour of time, the ghost hands the mediums vision cards which represent dreamlike images in order to help the medium deduce which suspect what involved with the crime.

SpyFall is a party game that is a great example of one vs many board games which is also an incorporated party game! 3- 8 players will be handed cards with a location on them, whether you are at a casino, submarine, and so forth. However, one of you wont be getting a location card. Instead, you’ll be getting a spy card. So, when everyone takes turns asking questions like “How are the swimmers?” and hearing answers about the location on the card. The spy will want to listen carefully to make sure he can “pretend” to be in the same location. Simple and fun.

Shadows Over Camelot

I think Shadows Over Camelot is the plot twist of this list of Top one vs many board games. While each game may or may not have a traitor–which would disqualify the game from being a one versus many. However, I feel the chance that one player MAY be a traitor keeps the game consistent along with the other games. In this game each player handles one of the few knights of the round table. Each turn, a knight plays a hero action as in new quests, building their hand, and playing cards to advance good forces. Each knight must also choose one of the three actions to bring Camelot to defeat. Players vs the game or players vs traitor, I feel this game holds up as interesting and one of the great one vs many board games.

Bonus Games

While I wont go in detail about these games listed below; I would like to point out they are definitely games worth checking out. Why I don’t find these necessarily top 5 is because they have high expectations (character count, may be a bit difficult to grasp, or last a  little while) or just.

The Resistance

Party game of social deduction. You are either part of the resistance or you are a spy! 5- 10 players.

Outsider

90 minute hidden agenda collaberate about staying alive.
