Ahoy there, ye landlubbers! Get ready to set sail with Skull, the high-stakes bluffing game that’ll have you walking the plank – okay, maybe not that extreme, but you get the idea. Each of ye scallywags will have four coasters – three with flowers, and one with a skull.

In secret, you’ll place one coaster face down, then bid on how many coasters ye can flip over without finding a skull. But beware, mateys, because the other players will be trying to trick ye with their bids! If ye can’t flip over the number of coasters ye promised without hitting a skull, ye’ll have to surrender one of yer coasters.

The first pirate to win two bids and keep their coasters will be the captain of the ship – and the envy of all the other buccaneers. So gather yer crew, hoist the Jolly Roger, and let the games begin!

But watch out – the Werewolf will throw you off the scent with all sorts of sneaky lies!

As time ticks away, the rest of you have to ask yes or no questions to figure out the word and catch the Werewolf. If you succeed, you’ll all howl with delight, but if the Werewolf escapes, they’ll be howling at the moon in triumph. So gather your pack and get ready to sniff out the truth – it’s time to play Werewords!

5. Happy Salmon

In this fast-paced party game for 3-6 players, you’ll each have a deck of cards with four crazy actions: “High 5,” “Pound It,” “Switcheroo,” and of course, “Happy Salmon!” Your goal is to find a fellow player with the same action and do it together, all while yelling out the action’s name like a maniac.
