I have until Thanksgiving day to distribute my Christmas wish list for the year. I wanted to reach out to you all and see if you had suggestions based on games I currently own and my wishlist. Maybe something has fallen through the cracks. Will you find it?

You mention co-op games go over well in your game group.
This one is co-op but has a very different feel to forbidden island

A classic. You have a wonderful collection, it is almost a crime that you don´t have this one! At least I didn´t find it.

This would be a good fit for your collection. I felt that it challenged the way that I usually think about games in that you don't control any one airline, but have a stake in many.

This is another great game where you are competing but you have to work with others to get ahead. It's a beautiful game on top of that.

I noticed you are considering Dixit. I would defiantly recommend this. It has been a big hit for my friends who like the simpler and shorter games.

Another game along the same vein that they enjoy is Telestrations. We enjoy it far more with 6+ players, while Dixit is preferred with 4 or 5 players. I wouldn't recommend either with less than 4.

Thebes is a fun game, a good balance of theme, strategy, and luck.

Since you appreciate the humour in Cards Against Humanity, you might enjoy Kittens in a Blender, a twisted filler card game, as a stocking stuffer. shake

A great wizard battle game with simple rules and complex play. Looks fantastic, and the dice are spectacular.

One of the most universally loved of all games to have come out in the last two years. A simple, push-your-luck dice-roller with giant monsters.

Another game that has garnered strongly positive reviews from both newbies and hardcore gamers, LoW is a simple worker placement game that adds some screwage. While not groundbreaking, it does almost everything well, plus it's easy to learn. Fans of fantasy and RPGs will find it a gateway to other Eurogames.

With Revolution! The Palace expansion. An excellent blind bidding game that can be picked up by anyone in minutes. Has a lot of satisfying play packed inside.

Still one of the greats. A step up in complexity from some others in your collection (though I see Belfort on there—played yet?).

Can't believe you're not Dominion'ed out...

Your collection/wishlist reminds me of a friend's.

From his collection I direct you towards:

Taj Mahal
, similar but better than Ticket to Ride.

Kingsburg, which has interesting mechanics.

and Alladin's Dragons.

Need a quick game for up to 7 (8 with the expansions) people? Look no further than this award winning game. I feel it plays better with 3-5 though, but you cannot lose eith this wonderful game!
