Hi! I’m Lyn, a blogger and graphic designer in New Orleans. Find more from me at Lazy Lady, a lifestyle blog focusing on all things nerdy and pretending to be an adult; and on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. You can find more of my design work at LV Book Design.

Game nights are the best, and I personally love playing tabletop games no matter the number of players. International Tabletop Day is April 30th and if you are looking for a great game to play, then I have an answer! Here is a helpful infographic that will find the perfect game to match your player count, skill levels, as well as any time constraints you might have. I have personally played every game on here, so I know you are in for a good time no matter which one you play. So, have fun!

    I didn’t realize April 30th was International Tabletop Day – fun! We’ll have to plan a game night for then. 🙂

      I had no idea either until Lyn wrote the post. We’ll definitely have to make sure we plan something.

      I’m glad you found it helpful! I love all of these games…well, except Mansions of Madness. I have a love/hate relationship with that one, ha ha.

      That’s so cool. We have a local board game cafe we can go to, and they just opened a retail location near our apartment that actually rents games!

      I love the game lending libraries at my local game stores. I’ve been able to try out a lot of games before buying them and it has definitely saved me money. Glad you like the graphic!

      Yes, all of the games Lyn included are very easy to get into, even if they do have a lot more strategy than Sorry.
