My son is starting 6th grade today and I will be starting an after school board gaming group. I have a few games that I know will do well for the 11-14 y/o age demographic. But I am definitely looking for suggestions. I am also looking for donations or even trades. I have never done this before so I hope I didn't break any etiquette rules by asking for donations. Oh well here is my list.

I think this would be a great ice breaker game. I know every time I have played it I have had a blast.

I am thinking this will probably be good for the 8th graders. It's quick and easy to set up and also really easy to learn.

I am hoping this isn't too abstract. It also falls under the quick and easy category.

Kind of a no brainer here. I wish I had the original TTR, but this one is a lot of fun too.

Set up and take down time is kind of a bear, but I think it's a lot of fun to play.

My son (age 9) and his best friend will play this for hours on end. I join in occasionally, and while I haven't lost yet, it's only a matter of time before one of them beats me. They're much better than me at seeing the 15+ moves; I'm better at seeing the 8-and-under ones...

Great for a group up to seven people. It's easy to learn and easy to play, but can still offer a challenge.

Any number of people can play this. It gets the brain working too, a good warm up game. And, it's inexpensive.
