Now we're talking!

I've made a slide show for my wife and kids to help them choose which board game I'm getting for my 35th birthday.

Vote for which one you think I'll get by thumbing one of the games below. Up to two votes per Geek!

I have no Geek Gold right now, but everyone who votes correctly will get a Geek cent (WOW!) next time my pockets are jingling. Or more if there's hardly any votes and I've got no holes in my pockets.

I'll announce which game I got on September 28th (or 29th)! (2013 baby, in case you're reading this from the distant future.)

EDIT: Here's the slideshow I gave them: (I don't think they watched the embedded videos though)

My son might get this because he loved playing Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth on the PC. We've played Arkham Horror too and he has tons of questions about HPL and the Mythos.

However, it started to get into his dreams and scaring him, so we put the kibosh on it for a while.

My daughter digs monsters and Cthulhu, but given the other offerings, she might be ambivalent about this game.

My daughter might like the colorful mayhem of this and my son could too. The characters are cute too. Hard to judge.

I know my daughter has a thing for dragons, so this is a likely candidate. My son likes a good dungeon crawl too, but only if there's a dwarf. They've both played the Ravenloft one as well. They've known about D&D since toddlerhood. I guess its a case of whether one of the other offerings outshines this.

Same goes for this one, but there's a demon instead of a dragon. And there'd better be a dwarf, or this one's a no-show.

Dragon on the cover, no sign of a playable dwarf. They liked Talisman, but I'm not sure how well the slide for this onveys the similarity. Significantly less models too. So this one might be an outsider ...

Dungeoncrawl, wolf-like creature (daughter loves wolves) but again, no dwarf in the slide. The chrome is attractive, and the big ettin(?) has to be a draw. Who knows?

This looks beautiful and very attractive to a child. And I know they'll love that chest with the fangs. They didn't watch the videos in the slideshow, so that probably won't sway them. Plus it might cost a bomb, but I ain't going to check - don't tell me!
