Dear Secret Santa,
I think that you will find that my wife, daughter, and I have been very good board gamers this year. Well, okay board gamers. Maybe we're just alright.
Our current gaming loves include light strategy board and card games that support as many as six or as few as two players. We're fans of both competitive and cooperative games, although we're definitely aware of the alpha player issue in coops. We tend to favor shorter games over longer games, and anything longer than about an hour per play probably won't see a lot of action for us. We also host bimonthly game days with 20-30 guests, so a diverse collection is also important to us.
Our current favorite games include Takenoko, No Thanks, Red7, Balloon Cup, Codenames, Concept, Coup, Sushi Go, and Rhino Hero.
We trust your Santa-riffic skills to determine the best choice for the next addition to our collection - we haven't been able to get to conventions this year like we usually do, so who knows what we've missed!
