The 2011 BoardGameGeek holiday gift guide is out! You can find it here:
Board_Game_Gift_Guide_2011

As always, the games in this guide are targetted at the casual player, people who wouldn't normally stop by BoardGameGeek. For that reason, we need your help to get the word out. At the top of the guide are buttons for sharing on Facebook, Digg, Reddit, and Google Plus. If you want to help spread the word about our great games, sharing this gift guide is one of the best ways to do it!

Thanks to everyone who helped work on the gift guide this year - with your help, we've been able to get this out in plenty of time for holiday shopping.

I got in everyone's hostile little face. Yes, these are wooden cubes from boardgaming. Yes, I'm comfortable with that. I am enlightened.

I was expecting to look through this with a gruff, disapproving expression and shake my head the whole time. Didn't happen. Stellar guide.

I would recommend taking LCR off the list, even if you do have the version with prettier dice.

Couple of bad Amazon links with better links:

Hey That's My Fish - This goes to the small box FFG version.

http://www.amazon.com/Fantasy-Flight-Games-TY05-Thats/dp/161...


The Adventurers: Pyramid of Horus - Other link goes to Temple of Chac.

http://www.amazon.com/Fantasy-Flight-Games-DU15-Adventurers/...

Great List!

Great overview.
Only too bad that King of Tokyo is language dependable. Otherwise I would have had it on my wishlist, because this is exactly a game to play with my 2 sons.
But I keep my fingers crossed and hope that an international issue will be available soon.

Two general comments:

Survive: Escape from Atlantis! is once again (temporarily) out of print, so supplies may dry up.

Basic Time's Up! is also generally unavailable. Time's Up! Deluxe and (IMHO, the superior) Time's Up! Title Recall! are still in production.

And thanks so much for adding Amazon prices. Way to support the FLGS's out there.

Survive! - I did a quick search and found at least 40 copies still available currently at least online. I guess if it becomes a problem we should address it then.

Time's UP! - yep, it will be pretty easy to switch that out. I couldn't find any of the base game.

I'm sure Octavian is following this thread and will get to it when he has the chance.

When green is all there is to be, it could make you wonder why. But why wonder? I'm green, and it'll do fine: it's beautiful, and I think it's what I want to be.

The guide looks really nice! I think we get better at this every year!

Looks great!

My only comment is that Animal Upon Animal is nigh impossible to find outside of people trading or selling it on this site.
