Game of the Week: Diamonsters

Game of the Week Geek Culture Tabletop Games


We believe that few things are as enjoyable as sitting around the living room floor, playing a game with your family. Each week, in the ‘Game of the Week’ column, GeekDad will suggest a fun, family-friendly game everyone can enjoy while spending time with each other. Here’s this week’s pick:


Diamonsters is a deduction and bluffing card game from the makers of Machi Koro. It’s suitable for children who can count to five and can understand the concept of a trump card. It plays quickly with easy setup, and could be packaged in a small card box for easy transport. The art is charming. It’s also a sneaky way to teach kids Japanese counting (at least up to Go).
