  2. Awesome video! Could you do one for Xbox/Playstion?

  3. Ok….so excuse my ignorance but "on 8 joy cons" translates to having 4 Nintendo Switches, right? Or can you buy extra joy cons to add to one Switch console? Do I need 4 copies of the each game if they are all in the same room? Trying to figure out the specs for a library gaming program and I only personally own a xbox. Help!

  4. I wish Duck Game could be on this list, but its 8-player update isn't on consoles yet… Ugh, it's so frustrating! My friend group loves Duck Game!

  5. It makes me wonder why does neither mario party on switch support 8 players if they did it before

  6. 6 player boomerang fu is the most fun you can have with your clothes off

  7. Can you jump in with a phone like jack in the box or need 8 controllers?

  8. Thank you for creating this! I will save your video to look back on when I have a future 8 player session! Also wanted to mention that Sega Ages Virtua Racing supports 8 players (just make sure the tv is big enough to be split into eight separate screens haha).

  9. ASTRO DUEL is missing (since you included 6player also) 🙂 would you make also 8 player 2 nintendo switch consoles (4 players each) local multiplayer? 🙂

  10. Starting to plan ahead for my annual Halloween Party, this list was excellent for it! Thank you so much!

  11. where do you find Alpaca Ball: Allstars for the switch

  12. Amazing video! Thanks for the recommendations 🙂

  13. You also forgot monopoly. I love it so much because you can just use one controller and pass it around so your don't need to buy extras.

  14. Thanks for this list! Gonna take a look at a few of these. I think the biggest and funnest 8 player game not on this list is Gang Beast. Smash Bros meets King of the Hill!

  15. This is easily one of the best review/game recommendation videos I've found. So many hidden gems here!

  16. Thanks! Many that I hadn't heard before. It's shockingly difficult to find which games in the nintendo store support more than 4 (and whether it's local or online play). I did notice you missed Octafight though. I haven't picked it up yet but it does support 8 local players. Cheers!
