NOW AT OVER 500 THUMBS - THANKS TO ALL SUPPORTERS OF MY #1 GEEKLIST

As my profile and a previous geeklist attest to, I consider myself very lucky to have met and married my wife Nicole, who, despite not being a boardgamegeek like myself, has jumped into playing various games with gusto both when we were dating and now that we are married.

I have previously submitted a list of my top 3 games I play with Nicole, but I have realised a new list is required. Since our daughter Mackenzie was born in 2008, we have found ourselves with less and less time as parents of a toddler to fit in a board game here and there. This issue has only been exacerbated since our son Frazer was born in October 2011!

Consequently, we have found ourselves coming back to the same four games time and time again, as they are engaging games that can be played in minimal time. When your children only sleep for a few hours during the day (and you are too tired to play at night) it is critical to select games that will stand a chance of getting played and ones that you will still actually enjoy playing, so here they are:
