It looks like we will be moving to Ohio from Colorado for a year while my wife goes to school. Right now the plan is to just back the bare minimum (the kids and my computer) into the minivan and just thrift up what we need later. It is hard to say how much room I will have for games until the last moment but for now I would like to pick out a good selection so I know what not to store away at my parent's house.

Hmmm I haven't played it yet so I have no idea if we like it or not. I will try to get a play in pre-move.

I'm not sure about BaHotH... You need a good sized group for it so chances are if I do get a play in, it will be with someone that already has it... Although, if converting some of my wife's relatives into gamers goes well I would like to have this one handy.

I have the same problem with this game as with house on the hill. I will probably bring it along, but it will be one of the last ones I shove into the van.

I wasn't sure if this one would make the final cut at first. I thought we could pick up some other version or maybe even thrift up a copy. In the end I have a feeling it is one we are more likely to get non-gamers to play and it is probably worth a spot in the van.

I kinda sat this one on the pile while I was moving games and figured it couldn't hurt to have a simple game to play while we are watching a movie or something.

This is one that I don't technically own yet, however I should be able to pick it up in a few days =)

It will probably come along with us, however I would like to get a play or two in first just to make sure my wife likes it.

I used to travel a lot for work, and if I went anywhere for an extended period I always brought the Gric. It's never the same game and the solo series is really fun, too, with or without the SoloPlay variants.

I love it with two, as well.

You know you love it. It stands up well to repeated play, especially if you include the Inns & Cathedrals expansion. I took this on a 10-month wanderjahr in Europe and played about 100 times with my wife -- it never got old.

I'll need to bring a few dice games and this one is still fun. I really wish I could have found a good deal on an expansion though... I still have the version that is in the cube and isn't stack friendly.

I'm sure we will manage to get a few plays of this in, even if it is just the two of us.

I also have a '11 classic games' box that holds small card games surprisingly well. I have a few like fluxx and Squarrels and umm... hmmm I could probably fit 11 card games with the rules in here.. Anyway if I think of anything small I'll probably put it in this box.
