Sweet sweet Father's Day...it is time to guilt the family into playing a game of my choice that they usually would prefer not to sit through...not because they don't like the game but because it takes so much time!

Keep your ties and dress shirts...let's play a boardgame "for Daddy"...

I can't decide which one...!

This may be perfect...my oldest daughter is out of town for several months so we would only have 4 players. Surely, this is one of those games that will take a long time and is usually hard to "squeeze" in. My wife is a fan of civilization games too so this seems like the likely candidate...

Always a contender...but I probably would prefer a 5 player game...so I may save this for my birthday wish once my daughter is back...

I'm not going to make my wife play anything with me.

Weather and opposition-getting-a-full-team dependent, I'm going to spend my Sunday afternoon the very best way I know how: Playing cricket.

2pm to 7.30pm + drinks, cards and banter at the pub afterwards = a very happy me.

As long as I play better than last week, although I WAS ill last week to be fair.

So, my tiny family includes a wife that is sometimes willing to play and a 10 year-old daughter who likes playing fairly casual games.

I'm gonna sneak The Builders: Middle Ages in because it's got cute art and terrific graphic design, but it's also clever and plays like Splendor. So, there's some thinking involved, yet it's fast paced and doesn't appear complex. whistle

My ten year-old daughter frequently asks to play this. It may drive my hyper-competitive (but darling) wife to moments of rage, but I think we'll have fun with this take-that classic.

My money's on this game as the most successful of the day. Co-op helps ease my wife's hyper-competitive (but darling) nature, and the fun, frantic nature of this adventure should have my daughter asking for another play. I'll add in curses and treasures for the second game....

My wife has not yet learned this one. Sad thing is, she will probably love it. She likes Puerto Rico (although says it's a bit too heavy) and really enjoys Stone Age and TtR:Europe.

Castles has enough strategy and complexity to scratch that itch, while not being too confrontational (i.e. Settlers - we actually had to put that one on hiatus for a bit) or too "heavy".

My wife asked me what I wanted for Father's Day. I said, "The same thing I've been asking you for the last five years - a four hour session of a role playing game."

I have a Godlike scenario all ready to go. Odd's are I'll still have it ready next year.

This is the game no-one ever wants to play except me, so Father's Day would have been an excellent occasion, but I got Tobago as my present and I really wanted to try it out immediately, so we played that instead.

Leprechauns! My family does not like playing games. This is very difficult for someone who likes to design games. I will be convincing them to play my game Leprechauns again this Father's Day. At least it plays fast and is competitive but still very light hearted.

This is especially for my wife. I know she will be good at it. She just hasn't had the chance to play it.
