We run the game night every week at our local small town library. 90% of the people who come are kids in the 7-14 age group. Most of them have never played a game that is not mass marketed from a big box store. Almost all the games we have played come from our personal collection, however, the library is starting to get a few of the games to be available to check-out.

These are the games we have played and how they have gone over.

One of the most loved games of game night. It is played at least twice every game night. There is nothing that the kids don't like about the game. It was easy to learn and they could play right away. We just got the expansion, so we'll see how that goes over at the next night.

This game is played almost weekly. Everyone loves the fast nature of the game and they enjoy the tension of trying to get the gems down and the tiles out, all while trying to avoid the closing temple doors.

Another game that the kids really love. They really enjoy seeing what combinations they get and then seeing how they can use their cards against the other players and for them.

A game that was easy to explain and easy to learn for the kids in our group. They enjoy building their alhambra. Gets played about once or twice a month.

At first the kids were not too sure on this game. They thought it was too simple. The end, however, they were having so much fun trying to prevent others from finishing their castles by making them bigger or getting that right piece to that finished off what they were building. It isn't played every time but it is played at least once a month.

Currently we only have the standard game, so we can only play up to 4 people. Not all the kids have played this game, but those that did seem to enjoy it. It is one of the few games that our library has available to check out; and it has been checked out a few times.

Some of the kids really like this game. They love building the stories and then coming up with creative and funny ways to kill the family members off.

A great game to pull out when we get some younger kids coming it. They really like it when the shark bits someone and they get to pull a limb off. The only time the older kids pull this out out is when one of their younger siblings are there.

This is what most of the kids played when game night was started. Since we started bring part of our collection from home, however, it is not played very often anymore.

This was one of the first games that we taught at game night. It was easy to explain and kids understood how to play quickly. They enjoyed playing it, but towards the end they were getting distracted by other things. They game went a tad too long for them. It is not a game that they choose to play often.
