Anomia Party Edition Card Game
Details: The goal of Anomia is to win the most number of cards you can, by thinking of a word within a category before the other players. The prompts range from anything like "spotted animal" to "African country," so the more random knowledge you know, the better!
Details: Love a good murder mystery? Each player but one (who plays the victim's ghost) is a psychic investigator that has to try to solve the case based on visions that the ghost communicates with them. The players have to work together to figure out the weapon, location and killer or else the murder stays unsolved.
