For many people, the best company in the world is their better half, and when you add two more friends in a couple to the plan it’s awesome! It is common to arrange outings, dinners, and evenings of couple play.
If that is your case, and you are also a fan of board games, I have excellent news for you:
We gathered for you the best board games for 4 people, and in a short time, you will know everything about them.
They are also very good for playing with the family, parents and two children, for example, as they are also well suited for family entertainment.
The truth is that not every game is suitable for 4 players. Some are not fun unless a large group is completed, and playing them with less is a waste. Others, on the contrary, with four or more people, are totally unsuitable.
That’s why we bring you this selection today so that you can get straight to the point, and not fall short, or go overboard when buying a 4-person board game.
Robinson Crusoe: The Cursed Island
There is no adventure that surpasses survival on a desert island, at the expense of nature and with any danger that may lurk. If you add to that a good dose of mystery… That’s a super adventure!
Now, this is a cooperative game, where you and your friends are going to be castaways fighting for survival.
You’ll have adventure cards, which urge you to explore the island, find the resources you need, or discover ancient treasures; event cards, which are responsible for all sorts of circumstances occurring, such as attacks by wild animals, for example; and mystery cards, of course. You’re not just anywhere… it’s Cursed Island, remember? Unraveling dark unknowns will be an essential part of your stay: What is buried in that well-hidden aboriginal ruin? Don’t you want to know?
The game includes 7 different scenarios, each one surpassing the last in complexity and shock – there’s so much to discover on Cursed Island!
- A partir de 8 años.
- Duración del juego: 60-120.

Do you know the game of Chinese Whispers?, the one where you start with a phrase or word that, after a long chain of whispers, no longer looks like the one you used?
Telestrations use the same principle, except that here the message is passed from player to player by the use of pictures.
No matter how good a cartoonist you are, and no matter how well-intentioned you are, the chances are that the person you’re talking to will interpret your drawing as he or she really wants to, so you have to work hard to get the message to the end of the chain intact. This is almost never achieved.
In fact, what you do achieve is to laugh until your guts can’t take it anymore.
A light and fun game, though it does work the memory quite a bit. Players have to climb a ladder that leads to the top of a tower, where a ghost lives.
You will assume the role of a mischievous boy who wants to be the first of the gang of friends to get to the top and scare the ghost away.
The ghost knows what they want to do to him, and he turns annoying little boys into ghosts. How does this happen? Well, every time you roll the dice and it says “ghost,” the player’s piece is covered with the ghost piece.
These pieces are hollow inside and have a magnet that holds the piece to the ghost. When the pawns are all covered, it will be very difficult to remember who is who, unless you have a very good memory.
The game is in a German version, but there are directions in English and there’s no problem at all to play it! (since the game does not use language)

Kaleidos brings a package of illustrated cards, and letters of the alphabet. A cardboard is taken out and placed on the easel, and a letter is turned over.
Find as many words as possible, starting with the letter that is indicated on the card, before the hourglass runs out.
The illustrations that show the cards are very beautiful, in bright colors, and very well defined, but there is a jumble of things:
People, animals, landscapes, and unimaginable objects, all mixed up, like in the craziest nightmare of a deranged surrealist.
You have to be quick, but also skillful. Don’t settle for the most obvious images, those that jump out at you, because the hidden ones are pointed higher.

Detectives move around the map, from station to station, using their transport tickets, and place their respective pieces.

With a very original theme, comes this board game, where your task, in order to win, is to keep yourself holy and pure.
In order for your opponents to lose their purity, and not be able to compete with you, you use the temptations. What better weapon than that!
Now, you will be tempted too, so watch out. As sins in the end, they are able to give you certain advantages (at least it seems that way to you), and you may decide to succumb to the temptation and sin, with the plan to get rid of the sin later, after you have taken advantage of it.
Be careful with that, there is not always time to regain purity, and the winner will be the one who reaches the end of the game without any cards of sin in his hand.
Besides, there will be an angel and a devil around, each one to work on you according to their corresponding trade, you know, helping or annoying, respectively.
This game is only available in Spanish, but it is very easy to understand. Here are the sins of the cards that will come in Spanish and their translation into English, plus, it has the advantage that you will also find yourself learning a language!

6 Nimmt (German Version)
Here’s a simple, fast-paced card game that is usually quickly placed in the players’ preferences. People play the first game and they don’t stop playing for a long time.
Each player is dealt 10 cards. Four cards are placed on the table. Each card is the starting point of a row that can only hold 5 cards.
Each player chooses one card from his hand and places it face down on the table. They turn them over at the same time. The cards are placed in the rows in ascending order, i.e. lowest value first, then second lowest, and so on… the rows grow, round by round.
When a player is forced to put the sixth card in a row, he has to take the previous 5 cards, and his card is the start of a new row of 5 cards. The cards he takes count as negative points for him.
As you can see, when the rows are about to be completed, and the dangerous situation is approaching in which someone will have to put the sixth card, you have to apply your intelligence, choose carefully which card of your hand to turn over. Is it better to take the lowest one? Or to throw a high one, so that the damn sixth card touches another one?
This game is sold in German, but you won’t have any problems since the instructions can be found in English on the internet very quickly and the game does not use any language.

How to choose which game to buy
Definitely, options are not lacking. The only thing left to do is to agree with your friends or family on the topic they like best, or on which they agree.
Look at the game mechanics, too. As you have seen, there are card games, board games, role-playing games, games where luck prevails, and others where it is not so much, or nothing at all…
Another thing to keep in mind is whether there are children among the 4 players because some of these games are more appropriate for children than others, depending on their age, and there are also games that are not recommended for infants.
What I can assure you is the common trait they all share: They are fun, interesting, and a good investment. The rest is up to you.
