1. Hashi Bugho
If you’re looking to keep things simple with minimal setup and cleanup, Hashi Bugho is one of the best guessing games for two or more people to try out. To play, you and your friends sit around a table with small wooden beads in the middle. Everyone takes turns rolling a die and moving a bead a certain number of spaces. The goal of this game is to try to get the other players to guess what the bead is, based on your hints.
You can write down on a piece of paper or another type of paper what your hints are and have your team members act as the audience. Your team will then have to explain to the audience what the clues mean and try to get them to guess the right bead based on what they’re given. If your team guesses correctly, they get to move the bead again while getting to choose where they want their turn to start.
Werewolf is a fun guessing game for two or more people. To play, you and your friends each take on the role of a different mythical werewolf. You’ll then have to guess which of the other werewolves is actually in the room with you. You’ll have to ask a series of increasingly vague questions to do this.
Your team members can stay silent and try to guess which wolf you are, or they can try to help you figure it out by giving you hints and clues. This can be a fun guessing game for a group to play, as it’s full of Werewolf-themed jokes and puns while also being relatively straightforward to set up and play.

Murder Mystery games are a great way to bring together friends and family for a fun outing. To play, you’ll all need to get together with a group interested in playing a murder mystery game. You and your friends can then each choose one person in the group from whom you want to get clues.
You and your chosen person then have to figure out what clues you got from each other and give clues back to the rest of the group. Depending on the type of murder mystery you end up playing, you may be trying to solve a murder mystery, or you may just be trying to figure out who each other is. In either case, this is a great group game to play with friends.
Codenames is another classic and one of the best guessing games for two people. Both of you hold a wordlist and a codebook in your hands to play.

10. Meeples and Dice Rollers
This is a guessing game that’s a bit different than most of the others. You and your friends are assigned a team name about a specific theme or subject. The team you’re on then divides into teams of 2 or 3 people and places themselves in a circle. The first person from each team then draws a card from a deck. The card is meant to be something easy to decipher yet confusing enough that no one on your team can guess what it’s trying to tell them.
The goal of each person on the team is to use their memento to guess what the card says. It’s important to note that you may only use a memento to guess what the card says once. You must put your memento back into the circle if you get it wrong. The first team to get their members to guess the card correctly wins.
