My wife and I have always like board games. She played in college and I've been playing CCG's and Miniature games for over half my life. We had a handful of games when we got married and played them from time to time. These included Catan, Othello and Life.
This year it all changed when we saw Ticket to Ride and picked it up. We had so much fun. A month later we attended Lebanon-a-con, a local gaming weekend where we played games and bought a few at the silent auction. I got bit the hardest, and quickly started buying games. Here are some of the games we got this year and have been enjoying greatly.

We had not heard of this game until we saw it on Tabletop. I'm a Star Trek fan, who liked Wesley Crusher, so I love Tabletop. We thought this game looked great and we were not disappointed. We have payed this with all out friends and try to get it out often.

Picked this up cheap at the silent auction @ Lebanon-a-con. We had played Pandemic at the con and heard this was like it. We enjoyed the theme a lot and my wife stressed over losing the island. It is simple and fun and has hit the table a couple of times.

We got this at the game day as well. We left it on our shelf for a while since it looked kinda lame. We took it out because we felt bad for leaving it alone. We ended up falling in love with the simplicity of it. Even had an 11 year old explain that the brown pirates wear brown so no one can tell when the crap has been scared out of them.

I got this with some prize winnings from a Warmachine tournament. We love this game. Something about it makes us want to play it over and over. My wife always wins, but I honestly do not mind too much as it is such a neat game.

We picked this up at the silent auction as well. We had no played any Carcassone games before, and thought the theme of this game looked fun. We have played it a number of times and find it fun, but other games have taken weight of this one.

I got this for my wife as a random "I Love You" gift. When we invite our friends over to play games they all request it. This is fine as we both love it, but it means some of the games in our collection get neglected.

We backed this game and printed the PnP. My wife was the first to exclaim how awesome the game was. She enjoys simple games and this is simple and elegant in the gameplay. We are excited to see this box in the mail when the kickstarter is fulfilled.

I had heard a lot about this game. Got this while out xmas shopping and it has been popular amongst our friends. The story part is the best. I do not care if I lose simply because the stories we are telling are so ridiculous. I can't get away from Cousin Mordecai and his hillbilly family. Balthazar even got backed into a pie once and late brought back by Professor Slogar. We laugh about some of the stories that have been told, even when not playing.

Got this through someone's BGG auction. We did not think we would like it as much as we do. It is a little boring in the 2 player so we look forward to playing with more players.

My wife has not played it yet, but I've been playing it solo and I have to say that I really like it. I love Star Trek and this feel very Trek to me. My wife has said she will play it, but she likes Voyager more so I'm hoping we will see a Voyager expansion soon so I can get her to play.

This was one of the gifts I got my wife for Chirstmas (she got it early, I was too excited to wait.) She lived in Japan as a missionary before we met and loves Japan and Panda bears. When she head there was a game that had a cute little panda bear she got excited. I was able to get a copy for her and it had hit our table a lot in the past few weeks. It is a beautiful game and she made the house rule that you must say "nom nom" when the panda eats bamboo.
