It is easy to fall into the trap of thinking of Gamewright games as merely just simple cards games for kids, but in truth Gamewright as expanded there library in recent years to include some very good family games.

Below is a list of my favorite Gamewright titles as of March 15, 2015.

I was initially afraid this would be too similar to Forbidden Island to bother with, but after playing this it completely distinguishes itself and is in my opinion the superior game. The storm moving mechanic is so unusual and the components are really cool. We find that luck plays a big part in this game, but smart play and strategy are still important.

Running a close second to Forbidden Desert this is a fun entry-level co-op that is fun to bring out when we need a filler-length game. Great components elevate the gaming experience.

This game pre-dates my experience with Hanabi and so it was my first experience with a game where you don't know what your cards are, but your opponents do. A colorful and interesting deduction game that is different enough from Hanabi that there is room for both in my collection.

I love word games, but not many folks in my game group are like-minded. This one however seems to work well since the focus is on simple 3-letter words and speed so there is virtually no down-time or AP involved. A quick-playing game that I think is a lot of fun.

This is a sweet little 2-player tile-laying game that has adorable artwork. While players are largely impacted by the luck of the draw, there is some strategy involved as well. An enjoyable game that plays in a short amount of time.

A variant of the classic card-game 99 that is played with a standard deck of cards. I enjoy the Greek mythology theme and the cards with special powers add to the gameplay. This is better to play earlier in the evening when players brains can handle the mental gymnastics of this surprisingly math-y game.

A fun little card-drafting, set collection game with more adorable artwork. This is a quick filler game that is a good one to pull out near the end of a gaming session when folks are too tired for a think-y game.

For those with youngsters under the age of 7 this is a delightful little dice-rolling game that plays quick and had wonderful purple wooden mice that will make you smile. We played this lots when our son was little and it travels well to boot.

I enjoy this dice selection, dice manipulation game with hidden objectives. The dice are colorful and of a good quality and the game comes with a cool dice tray. Unfortunately this was not a hit with my game group, many of whom felt that they didn't have enough control. I disagree, and feel that focusing on planning and strategy are the key to playing well.

This "everyone" plays at once card game is fun, fast, and chaotic. A great family-friendly filler.
