7 cottage games to keep you busy
After a day spent in the great outdoors, hiking in national parks or discovering the surrounding wildlife, there’s nothing better than getting together to play a little board game. Whether you’re a team player or a soloist, games are the perfect way to wrap up a busy day!
To prepare your cottage trip, Vieux Loup de Mer presents 7 cottage games for a memorable evening!
Also known as “Spot It!”, Dobble is a game of speed and symbols. The goal of the game is to name the same symbols to get rid of the cards in your hand. This addictive game offers several ways to play with different rules to liven up your evening.
Added bonus: this game can be played by 2 to 5 players.
2. THE WEREWOLVES OF MILLER’S HOLLOW
The goal is simple, all players around the table are assigned a role at the beginning of the game. Throughout the game, the designated werewolves have the sole objective of eliminating all other players to win the game. The others, however, must unmask the wolves before they are eliminated.
Between betrayals, false pretenses and manipulations, this game promises as much laughter as it does lively debate.
Added bonus: there are plenty of expansions to add to the original game.
3. JUNGLE SPEED
Watch your hands! If you managed to keep your hands safe during rock climbing in Le Bic, don’t expect to do the same while playing this game where symbols and speed are required.
The goal is simple: retrieve the totem in the center of the table to get rid of your cards as quickly as possible.
Added bonus: the more players, the merrier.
A strange name for a cottage game, yet Pandemic is a board game sensation. What better way to enjoy the cottage life than to play a strategy game?
The objective is to form a team to fight 4 viruses that threaten the life of a planet. Centered on cooperation and mutual understanding, this game is the best way to strengthen ties and be transported into another dimension.
5. IMPROVISE-MOI ÇA! (FRENCH ONLY)
Lovers of improvisation and acting of all kinds, this game is for you!
Had to keep quiet for the animals in Parc National du Bic and want to let off some steam? “Improvise-moi ça!” is a fun game in which players randomly draw a card with the details of a situation to improvise in front of other players.
Guaranteed laughs for the whole night!
Added bonus: the handicap cards will spice up your scenes.
6. LE JEU DE LA BOULETTE (FRENCH ONLY)
The perfect mix between a guessing game and a team game, le jeu de la boulette is the perfect way to spend your days by the fire.
The goal is simple (again), each player must write 5 to 10 names on papers before shuffling them. They can be public figures, people you know or any other character.
The only constraint is that they must be personalities that you can imitate. Once the “boulettes” of paper are grouped together, you will have to imitate the person to get your group to guess them. The team that guesses the most characters wins the game.
7. SUL’BORD D’LA 20 (FRENCH ONLY)
The perfect game to deepen your knowledge of Quebec.
Two teams will face each other on original questions and challenges all related to Quebec and its history. A perfect game to pass the time by the fire.
Added bonus: it can be played on the way home as well as in the evening.
