Military Games for Six Players
Mon Oct 20 20:55:38 UTC 2008 Added Galactic Emperor; Senji

Six players is often a difficult number when trying to set up a games session. There are many good games for five and seven can always be split into three and four. But there are not that many good games for three and splitting into a group of four and a group of two tends to make the two wonder why they bothered showing up for the group event in the first place. Here then are some suggestions for six-player games which you may like to take for stocking your game library.

Do you have any further suggestions?
