When I started to post the reviews on Jenga-Game.Com my readers sent many different requests. One request I couldn’t fulfill for many months and, finally, I have time to fix this. The request was quite simple – to recommend the board games for a small group of friends up to 3 participants. The deal is done! Below you will find my thoughts on this subject.

How to pick board game titles for 3 players?

The board games for a relatively small group. Firstly, they are played at a quite fast pace and in general each round offers an average session of 15-30 minutes. Secondly, you need to pick the rules interesting enough for all participants. Finally, the fact that with what the more people play such a board game at the same time, the more interesting and funny it turns to be. However, sometimes 3 players can make a lot of sense even from the simplest games. So, basically, the choice is unlimited here.

My picks for the best board games for 3 players

The board games for such a small group are perfect for old friends who understand each other perfectly. To revive a boring evening, add fun to a party and “exercise brains” I offer such titles:

  1. Rummikub is a great, not very popular game for 2-4 players. It includes 106 tiles and can be played by gamers aged over 8 years;
  2. Jenga is a classic pick for all groups and ages. People just love playing it;
  3. Quiddler is a card game for up to 8 players. It even includes the solitaire version;
  4. 221B Baker Street – if you like Sherlock in any iteration, this game is just for you. Over 200 intrigue cases are included to this title;

You may read the full review of each game using the table above this post. I’m also open to your recommendations in the comments. Thank you for reading!
