Game of Thrones – Hand of the King

In Hand of the king you play as Varys trying to collect the most from the houses of Westeros. Can you collect the most banners to win this short game for 2-4 players?

If you claim the last member of a house, you get to collect a companion card which gives you extra abilities (pssst Jon Snow is pretty good).

The player with the most banners at the end wins. If it is a draw, the person with the most members of a house wins.

This is a surprisingly deep game but so easy to learn, taking less than a minute to understand as shown in the video below.

Markaz rules

  • Winner stays on


Taboo is a party game where you try to guess what your teammates are saying to move forward and be the first team to win, but do not say the word on the card or get squeaked by the other team….

Markaz rules

The player holding the card can not use words in another language. However the team guessing can guess the word and it counts if said in another language.


Werewolf is a social deduction game where you play as either the narrator, a villager/ type of villager like a physician or as a werewolf.

The narrator controls the game but can not win. As a villager you win if you kill all the werewolves. As a werewolf you win if you outnumber the villagers.

But who is who? Do you believe what other players are telling you or not?

Watch the video below and be ready to play a fun (and likely loud) game with your friends and dinner…..

Markaz rules

  • Each day phase will be limited to 3 minutes at which time someone MUST be voted. If not, then the narrator will choose one person based on the discussion already had.
  • The version that will be played looks different to the one in the video but the rules are the same.
  • Remaining winning team members stay on.

Secret Hitler

In Secret Hitler is a social deduction game where you play as either as a liberal, fascist or as Hitler. If you are a liberal you win by either enacting five liberal policies or killing Hitler. If you are a fascist you win by enacting 6 fascist policies or voting in Hitler as Chancellor after three policies. It may sound a little complicated but this game is excellent fun and will likely cause a lot of noise as you act to convince or deceive the other players.

Highly recommend watching the rules and there will be experienced players on hand to help you.

Markaz rules

  • Voting for a new Chancellor can not take more than 2 minutes.
  • Remaining winning team members stay on.
