So, I have enough money to buy two (or three) new games. However, I'm having a difficult time deciding which ones I should buy. I keep changing my mind. So which ever games have the most thumbs up (by Monday) will be the winners.

1. I mostly play games with my wife. This means I play a lot of two player games, however, this does not rule out games that cannot be played with only two players - I have friends too!

2. Over Christmas I will have 11 people staying at my house for over a week! Yes, 11 people! Four children, five (semi-non-gamer-but-willing-to-try-non-euro-games) adults, my wife, and I. It might be nice to buy something for them to play. I don't own many party games and I don't think they'll be down for Resistance.

3. It might be nice to have something for the kids, but they might be too young still - the oldest are 7 and 5.

If you feel that I am missing something you think would be perfect, leave a comment and let me know I was too stupid to realize how perfect that game would be for me to buy.

Thanks everyone!

I must admit, I have never played a worker placement game. I think the board is beautiful and the play seems simple enough for my level of experience, but also involved enough to be challenging. Plus, I think my wife might like it.

Agricola scares me. Maybe this will be the stepping stone to that game.

I have played this game a few times at a friends house. He had the 9000 expansion. However, we only played with four players.

The play seemed to drag sometimes, especially if my turn lasted a few seconds but the next person's turn took several minutes - darn wizards!!!

Overall, my experience was not positive. However, there was something about this game that makes me want to give it a second shot...but as a two player game. I love mixing the factions together. I really liked my Steampunk/Bears deck! Is this game better with just two players?

This looks like fun for the kids, but they might be too young still. The oldest is 7 and the second oldest is only 5. Maybe the adults might like it!

Is this game the Pictionary killer I envision it as?

This has good ratings. The reviews look good. But some people make this game sound highly overrated - which might be true. However, the artwork is cool and I think the concept is neat. Very family friendly.

I think this would be a great party game for when my family visits for Christmas. This one has been in and out of my shopping cart all week. However, Times Up looks like a lot of fun as well!

I can't decide which I'd like better for my family Dixit or this. Dixit might have the edge though.

I've always liked Clue, but have grown very tired of it. This looks like the perfect Clue replacement game! I think my family might like it as well.

Is there anyone who thinks it is not fun? Why?

Now this one looks super fun!!! I really want it. This has been another one that has been in and out of my shopping cart. I'm just not sure if my family will like it, but something tells me they would. They had fun playing Forbidden Island last time they were over.

This can also be played with just my wife and I.

Should I get the expansion (On the Brink) if I get this?

Another one for the kids. Looks simple enough for the 7 and 5 year old to play.

I think I'd really enjoy this game. However, I'm not to sure if my wife will like the theme. However, I've heard only good things about this game!

This looks like a great little dexterity game for the kids. Of course, that's just an excuse to buy the game...I think I'd secretly be the one who really wants this game!

Yep...I don't own it. I've never played it either. It seems boring to me. Is this really that good? Very family friendly though.

This game looks beyond good, but it takes a long time to play. I'm not sure if my family would like this - even though my wife and I would!

Does this play good with two players? How long are two player games typically?

This is a great game. Cooperative, so it takes care of people who you may have that get too competitive or are afraid of it. It keeps kids entertained. It's easy to teach and to learn. It has good replay value. All in all, I've never met people who didn't get into it with me when the atmosphere is a congenial one. Good gaming! Have fun with whatever you play.
