Lately a lot of my gaming seems to include games that card based. My kids seem to like them a lot for some reason. They generally take less time than some of the board games we like, so we tend to grab them when we are short on time. Over the last few years I've noticed our tendency to play these types of games, and have sought out card game that are fun, quicker playing, but challenging in their own ways. Here is a list of 10 games that I hope will get played at least 10 times in the next year.

We play this often and will be picking up the Babel expansion soon. One of our favorite games still.

My older son and I like to play this from time to time. We still have not played thru all of the expansions yet. We like this game, as it's a short Catan experience for two with a different style of game play.

We just got this and have already played 5 times. Everyone in the family likes it. Quick playing, nice looking, and fun to try new strategies out. We will get the expansions for sure.

We just started playing this. We own Puerto Rico but it doesn't come out as often as I'd like. This game gives the same feel in a much more condensed timeframe.

This will be a new game for Christmas. I'm hoping we like it. We all like games where we build cities, empires, kingdoms etc, so I'm confident we'll get 10 plays out of it.

We still play this once in a while. We used to love it. We still have a few expansions that we haven't really explored much. Should be able to break this out more. My kids are really good at this. I hardly ever win.

We have the board game version of this so we can with 4 people, but we sometimes break the card game out for a quick game before bed.

I've enjoyed playing this game since it was released. We don't play it all that often, but when we do I always think I should play it more.

This is a Christmas present for my older son whose favorite genre is Civ building. He enjoys unlocking all of the technologies in Sid Meier's Civilization so this might be a good game for him. Hopefully he enjoys it and we get a bunch of plays in. I bought the Iello version and an expansion set too.
