Big Crown: Showdown is a safe bet for party games to play that most people will enjoy. A large variety of maps helps to avoid tedium, but the core gameplay mechanics may be a bit too simple to sink into for much more than an hour at a time. There's nothing wrong with this, and Big Crown: Showdown is perfect for playing with friends, family, and frenemies, especially those who don't play games very often.

If you're looking for a good party game that will keep you entertained for a good time, then I'd suggest picking up Runbow instead, which is a bit cheaper and offers different game modes to take on for your next party.
