Help me pick a game for grandma
- f s(Si Fei)Germany
For grandma's birthday, I want to give her a game.Recommend
She likes gaming, but she finds many games very confusing. She enjoys Yatzee, Skip-bo, Rummy, and Triomino with her friends.
The reasons I want to give her a game are:
1) She likes gaming and would surely appreciate a game gift that she likes.
2) I like none of the games among her favourites and I would like to play with her and actually enjoy it. So I need to give her a game we both like.
The game should play 2 players as well as 3 or 4 (ideally even more, but 4 is fine), because games are social events and the rest of the family might join in.
Here is a short list about what I have tried so far and how it went. There also are some games I thought about but decided against.
Please add games you would recommend. Thank you for your help!
Feel free to add stories and comments on your own similiar experiences.
Thank you all very much so far! Your input is very very helpful!
I have now dedided that it is going to be Qwirkle. You have overcome my doubts, so I re-read the rules and I am now sure that Qwirkle is a good idea.
Most of the other games on this list are now on my to-try list. Many inspiring ideas there.
Thank you all very much!
Again: Unfortunately, it look as if Qwirkle does not work too well. Its mostly an issue with colours, but also with the tile-laying and scoring mechanics. See here.
